Come visit with me as I stitch and craft my way from one Christmas to the next - I like to have Christmas projects close by me all year. I have a particular fondness for Santas and Angels. If you have the time, leave a comment so I know you've visited.

Things are looking up ...

Maddie is much improved. Last Thursday the Vet was very cautious about her prognosis, and when the test results came back on Monday they showed liver failure, which the Vet thought may be caused by a tumour. The poor little baby was so lethargic and floppy that you could have mistaken her for a child's stuffed dog - except that she was warmer (she was febrile). The Vet pretty much said there was no hope for her, but he gave me some pain medication and food to mix with water and syringe feed to her. Within 24 hrs she started to improve, for which I am exceedingly grateful. She is more alert and responsive, tolerating her syringe feeds, drinking water from her bowl, walking a few steps, and has started to show some attitude - all good signs that she's on the mend, though she is still a sick little babe.

While I've been sitting around nursing her, I've managed to make one Christmas ornament (above). It's stitched on white 25 count linen (bought in France). The bear design is a freebie from DMC, and I added my own borders.

A lovely ornament, but better still good news about Maddie. I hope she improves more with each day.
