I had to give my chaining by hand process a good workout and I’m impressed. In just slightly over two hours, I had 36 of the HSTs stitched and ready to be pressed. The picture shows the ones that were pressed for the tutorial yesterday. The ones I stitched last night will look just like them once they’re pressed. At this rate who knows? Maybe I’ll have all 200 of the HSTs done before the weekend is over.
I had to have an MRI last night and, as I’m very claustrophobic, had been given a tranquilizer to take before the appointment. Seven hours later and I was still loopy from it! Which is why the little HSTs didn’t get pressed – I figured I wasn’t safe around an iron.
“Beaming In.” Pappy and Panda have arrived and it appears they’ve brought gifts. Now the real fun can begin! The tree decorating is about to begin, although I have a feeling a few catnip treats might be in order before the kitties and little alien get to work. Hmm – wonder if the little alien likes catnip?
Jake has gotten used to seeing Baxter drinking like this. Now he just carries on and eats. The first time Jake saw Baxter drinking he just stood there watching. I can only imagine what he was thinking! Mr. Q.O. captioned this one, “Dinner and Drinks.”
