HERE. Annette had sent me MORE pink fabrics and I wanted to give her a little something.
Do you recall this flatfold I made quite a while ago?
I was saving it to be a gift for just the right person, at just the right time. I mailed it off to our friend Barbara last week. She is a true friend. :)
I drew a name for the Lizzie Kate Dreaming Is Free Three Little Words pattern. The random winner of the pattern is Faith76. I sent you an email and I am waiting for your address. :) Always nice to have new friends here. I hope you enjoy stitching the sweet chart as I did.
Next time I will show you what I stitched this last week.
Sigh. So. Our precious Mabel. I will take her in to the vet tomorrow. He wants to examine her. She is staying on the full load of prescriptions to relieve pain indefinitely. She and I are both on gabapentin for our nerve pain. She has most likely slipped another disc. The veterinarian states that since she is holding her back leg up and not using it much, this usually indicates a slipped disc at L4 and/or L5. It is pressing on the nerve that runs down her back leg. She can live for months on three legs. She still eats, does her duty outside and wants belly rubs. She chews her bones and begs and wags her tail. It is possible the slipped disc is pressing on her spine instead. This will eventually lead to paralysis. As long as our girl is happy and on pain meds, we will cherish her. Let me tell you, this is rough! Especially knowing what I know about back pain and limited mobility from my very own body, well let's just say I am glad no one rushed me off to be euthanized!
Here is a great way to read John 3:16. God (the greatest Giver) so loved (the greatest motive) the world (which has the greatest spiritual poverty) that he gave (the greatest act of all) his only Son (the greatest gift), that whosoever (the all-time greatest invitation) believes in him (the greatest opportunity) should not perish (the greatest deliverance) but have eternal life (the greatest joy).
Thank you my friends for stopping in and saying hi. You encourage me.
Stitching and praying,
