I have just finished pages 23 & 24 of Jolly Old Fellolw. This completes the fourth row of charts, and brings the amount stitched to 75% of the chart!!! Happy me!!! Here's what he looks like now:
I am SO pleased with how much of this project I have stitched in 2012 (10+ chart pages) and now I am really confident that I can finish JOF this year, God willing. So I will definitely be pressing ahead, starting with page 25 tonight.
Not such good news about my poor computer. The repairman seems to have disappeared from the face of the earth. Of course, the fact that I omitted to find out his surname or the address of his workshop has really not helped me in tracking him down - a very good lesson learned there! It's now been over 6 weeks since he took the computer, and over 5 weeks since I last heard from him. I'm almost at the stage of spending the repair money on a replacement computer, and starting the long job of replicating my data (no, I hadn't backed up recently, and yes, I do know that it would have been a good idea!).
Miss Maddie is enjoying good health, and becoming even more definite about getting her needs met now that she is a teenager. She's a real little fluff-bucket, and cute as a button. The Vet says she has me well trained, and I guess that's right - but who wouldn't want to make this little cutie happy!
The adults in the house are on the mend as well. I have just 3 weeks more to tolerate my daily Pagets Disease tablets (and the tummy upsets that come with them), and Maxine is recovering her health slowly after the chemo and radiation treatment. Her blood tests are still a bit out of whack, but moving in the right direction. So that's all good.
