I feel badly I am behind a bit on my shirt but this has been a week when I have been occupied by other life things. Because it was a holiday yesterday, and because the vet was unable to get Mr. Rascal to eat, he was discharged to me for the day. I spent yesterday doing things around the house and cooking for him and trying to get him to eat and drink.
About 11:00 last night I drove him across town to the emergency vet for the night and some IV fluids and will be taking him into my vet again this morning. Because my vet is near my school I have also been going there between classes all week to try to feed him.
We will see how he goes over the next few days.
I have been able to do a few things, like the collar and some seams but that's been it. I really need some sewing time though to make me feel a little better.
I know that to those of you who do not have animals this all may seem a lot of fuss, but I love that guy and he sure trusts me to take care of him.
The one stress relief task I was able to do, which I enjoyed, was to order three different kinds of white fabric from Fabric.com - a swiss dot, pique and some linen.
- I am a mother, a new grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and I write a monthly humour/sewing column for the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches. My first book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge will be published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazonhttps://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=barbara+emodi&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Abarbara+emodi
