Just a couple of snow pictures first...
7-inch Esther's Square (Aran & Buff)
Vintage Lace Square (White & Red)
My Vintage Lace Square is kind of wonky. That may be the back that's showing. I'm not sure! It may be wonky because I used two different yarns -- the red is cotton and the white is ILTY.
Esther's Square is supposed to be 12 inches. I just made it smaller. I think I may make a blanket with this square some day. It's really pretty.
Just click on the links for the free patterns if you want them.
Now I have to give you some bad news...
Abbey has been sick this last week. She's hardly eaten and has blood in her stool. She also has a big tumor that she's had for a few months on the underside of her neck. It feels like the size of an orange. She is deaf and mostly blind. She will be 13 in May.
Phoebe has also deteriorated this year with her arthritis so that she can barely walk and needs assistance getting up and down. She also has numerous tumors. She is deaf and her eyesight is also shot. She will be 15 in August.
We are going to take both of them in to the vet tomorrow for the inevitable. It makes no sense to treat either of them at their ages and in their conditions. It's just their time.
I may be absent for the next couple of days. Just wanted you to know why.
