Selkie Update

Selkie was out to play again for the weekend. I just love working on her. Yes she is boring right now because I'm in the upper left corner. So it's blue blue and more blue. But I look ahead and get really excited.



So here is info. I'm doing her on 32 ct taupe evenweave. I've been working on her now for 24 days. I have the first page finished and I went down to page 7 instead of over to page 2. I have 10,820 stitches in right now. Here is what she looks like...






Life update. Friday night Jeremiah shut off his Xbox. This always draws my attention cause he LOVES Xbox and I have to normally tell him to shut it off when it's time. He said he was just feeling off. His ear kind of hurt. Well after my ear infection I knew that feeling. I noticed he had a wax build up so I used this medicine to help break that up and got a lot of wax out. I hoped that was the real problem. Saturday morning he said he still felt off and he felt slow. I checked and he had a temperature which for him is very normal when he gets any kind of infection. So I gave him some meds and he soon after vomited. So I called his doctor office and of course it was closed. So I called the clinic I go to and they said they would take him. When we got there he scared everyone by having a blood pressure bottom number of 44. The doc said he's so little and since he had just got sick it might have been because of that or the lady taking it might have been wrong. So we would take it again in a few minutes. They cleaned out both his ears cause the nurse couldn't see his ear drums at all. I joked with him about now he might listen better haha. Then she found out he did indeed have an outer ear infection. In cases of ear infections this one is the better option cause it just gets treated with ear drops. They retook his blood pressure and the bottom number was 68 so that was better too. So he's been resting on the couch all weekend.

This morning he had an eye doc appointment so we got up a little early and was starting to get ready. He said he felt weird again. I checked and yep 103 temp again! I hate when my little guy gets so hot. Always scares me. But with meds we got it back down in a little bit but no appointment today. More couch time. We have plans to go camping this weekend and he really really wants to be better. So here's hoping.

Linking to the Super Mom Blog Link Party for my first time too. Stop on over and see what it's about.

  1. I hope Jeremiah feels better soon; it must be soo worrying for you when he's ill. All that blue looks great, and I admire your stamina to keep going on it:) I don't think I could do it, especially stitching all of that in the same colour....

  7. I hope your little guy is better soon. It is funny but I love doing the big swaths of one color. I feel it goes faster then. I love watching the picture emerge but I hate the constant color changes.

  12. If you must stitch a lot of a color, I think the best color to do that is blue. :D I'm curious -- will the bottom corner of this page have a smidgen of hair?

    Hope Jeremiah gets over his blahs in time for camping. He started early enough in the week that there's definitely hope. :D
