Pets and Guitars  0

Hello stitchers! I have left another long lull between post. Once again I have been busy. I was out of town for almost two weeks house and pet sitting for family while they were on vacation. I got to spend some extended time with my first kittie Abigail a.k.a The Baby. I can’t believe it was 10yrs ago she decided I was her mommy. She’s still just as cute and stubborn as ever.
I also got to make a best friend, the cutest puppy ever, Miss Claire Bear.

It was a long trip but I did get to spend a good amount of time with the best niece & nephew ever, had a Doctor Who marathon with my dad, lots of Mexican food, and even got to hang out with my grandma while she was awake.

Once I got back home I got a great surprise “We got you a dog!” Actually my housemate just reacquired his dog, but all puppies in the house are my puppies. So say hello to my new buddy Odin!


While I was gone my friend Andrea was freed from the nursing home and allowed to go home! She still has a good bit of therapy to recuperate from Anti-NMNAR Encephalitis. We were also successful at making Family of Choice a Non-Profit, and I’m the Secretary, like a proper adult.

Over the last month or two I have started listening to a lot more music again, and am realizing how many musicians I know. So I decided to make some guitar pillows, based on a Fender Stratocaster thanks to a friend of mine’s love for his baby. I created a long pillow and two separate pillows that make the whole guitar. I have them as vertically stitched or horizontally stitched, so you can decide which way to go.

Rose Tyler, and where I have been  3

Hello there my stitchers! I know it has been quite some time since I have made a post, it seems that leaving the house keeps one busy. Yes, my hermit hat has been replaced by a slightly more social hat. I miss my naps and endless hours for charting. I also had to rest my hand after injuring it, so there is that.

One of the most exciting things I have done while on my chartcation was seeing one of my favorite bands Frog Eyes (video)IMG_1755.JPG
That guy is Carey Mercer, the rest of the band kinda changes over time, which is how I ended up hanging out with the drummer before hand without realizing it. Afterwords we got to hang out with the band and they were very nice Canadians and people. I had got much adrenaline I was shaking for 3 days. It was a great night a long time in the making.

Last weekend was a neighborhood festival, my favorite local festival of the year, and I got to smooze with Babachu and my friend Russ happened to be taking pics capturing the moment.

Now that I have some time to sit and relax I finally got around to charting Rose Tyler, as per request. Sadly I haven’t been able to watch any of the new Doctor Who, but my dad is recording them so I can watch them on my visit next week. He is not a fan of the writing this season. What do you think of the darker side of The Doctor?


*I have also been reformatting my Doctor Who Charts for knit stitches, so check in on those if you are interested
