A Christmas quilt is on my list to make one for next year using these fabrics. I know that an Inklingo Feathered Star collection will be coming out sometime in the near future and have decided that will be the design I’ll use for a Christmas quilt with these fabrics. A Feathered Star has been on my want-to-make list for years, so I’m really excited about the thought of making one. These fabrics have been tucked away for ages, waiting for the right idea for a Christmas quilt. I’ll get them washed and pressed in the next few days so that I’m ready to start.
Once again, thank you to everyone — all the good wishes and thoughts for Smudge meant a lot! We had Smudge to the vet again on Tuesday and he has put on a pound. We’re thrilled. Our vet’s happy. Smudge seems livelier and more engaged. That is the best Christmas present we could have asked for. We’re still syringe feeding and will be for a few weeks yet to ensure his weight gets back up to his normal 18+ pounds. Along with syringe feeding the food, we’re giving him a bit of yogourt every night now as he was given an injectable antibiotic yesterday. While he has always loved having a bit of yogourt, since he got sick he hasn’t wanted any of it so we’re giving that by syringe as well.
This photo was taken on Tuesday night. It’s hard to tell from the photo, but he’s more interested in what’s going on around him than he has been the past week or so. He’s still a bit jaundiced, but not as much as he was. A visit to the vet is scheduled for next Tuesday for another weigh-in and colour check.
Lester has continued to keep his eye on Smudge. He’s intrigued by the syringe feeding to the point that last night when we were giving Smudge some food, Lester decided he had to sniff the syringe.
Hopefully I’ll start replying to comments, visiting and commenting on blogs a bit more now.
