Happy Thanksgiving?

I always like starting positive. So yesterday I had a finish. This is JBW Turkey. I had finished the Squirrel and found out a friend of mine had the Turkey pattern. So we traded with each other. I used Weeks Dye Works thread called Sweet Potato. Figured that was appropriate for Thanksgiving time don't you? The picture turned out a little dark.

We had 12 here at our home for Thanksgiving. We had a lovely time. Unfortunately there was family not here but that's a whole lot of drama that I'm not talking about today. Grandma (My mom's mom) had a nice day and that's all that matters. We didn't have turkey we had ham so Jeremiah said we should call it Hamkey day instead haha. I started to get a sore throat the night before. Now it's a full blown head cold. Accompanied by one of those coughs that hurt your whole body. Fun Fun.

Guinea Pig Update....I noticed Fuzzy didn't look well at all Thanksgiving day. We gave him his shot and he just didn't seem okay. I told Jeremiah to get prepared. Thanksgiving night I glanced in the cage and he was going downhill quickly. He passed away in the evening. Jeremiah and I had a good cry about him. We buried him in the backyard. Poor little guy just couldn't make it any longer. We are glad he's not in pain any longer. So even though I was sick and it was Black Friday we knew we would head out and find another guinea pig for Fillmore to have a cage mate. So we headed out. Our first stop had good sales on supplies so we bought a cart full of goodies. Their guinea pigs were all girls though. So we headed to Petco and hit the mother load haha. Mom and me couldn't decided between these two. So I jokingly told to the girl to put it in the box and mom wouldn't find out. Yep you guessed it we have 3 guinea pigs now.

This is the 2 new ones. Gonzo on the right. Porkchop on the left.

This is our one we already had named Fillmore. He replaced Wuzzy after we found out he was aggressive. That happened about a week ago. So hopefully our guinea pig drama is OVER for awhile! We are pretty sure Fuzzy was sick since we got him cause he was never really active. When we brought the two new ones home they started whistling. The most adorable part was Fillmore got so excited and ran around looking for the other pigs he heard. When we put them together it was love at first sight and then ran and played and are still having so much fun together. I'm so glad they all get along and they love their pen and all their goodies. We are very happy critter owners now. I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving and is enjoying the weekend with as much relaxing as possible. I'm coughing and hurting but at least relaxing.


  1. Sometimes great things come from bad situations. Perhaps Fuzzy WAS sick when you got him...that certainly sounds like the case. But by you taking him home, he was able to spend his last little bit of time with a loving family, not in a tank at some pet store somewhere! And look how happy Fillmore is now! Definitely a few things to be thankful for! Glad you had a good Hamkey Day! Sorry for the family drama...there always has to be just a little bit, huh? Our house! Love ya all!

  2. First of all, the background on your blog is great! My oldest son, his wife and their son wear tie dye any chance they get.

    Secondly, I am sorry about Fuzzy, but it sounds like your two new pals are going to make for a happy trio!!

    Glad you had a great Thanksgiving. Familes - geesch. T'giving for us is with our "familes of choice" - great old friends and their families. But, Christmas will come and we are already dealing with the drama. Guess that is just how it all works out.

    Get to feeling better soon!

  3. Gobble gobble looks Great!!! Love the threads!So glad your furbaby family is back in order. Fell Better Soon!

  4. Hi Katie - it's nice to meet you! Thanks for joining the Wipocalypse! I'm updating the signup list now.

    I'm sorry to hear about Fuzzy. Pet deaths are always difficult, especially for kiddos. Hopefully Jeremiah is doing okay.

  5. Your JBW piece is gorgeous! I just love those french country designs! Your guinea pigs are so cute!! sorry about your loosing one though! at least he's not in pain anymore!

  6. I don't know anything about GP's so here's a "dumb" question: Is it important that they have cage mates? Do they do better? I know for some animals it's recommended and for others it's just fun to have multiples.

    Family drama... I hear ya. I have the same thing.

  7. Thank you for all your comments. Anonymous I don't know who you are but I appreciate what you said. Beth Thanks I love tie dye.

    Meari it's not a dumb question if you've never had them. They really like companionship. If you handle them all the time they would okay just being alone but they really enjoy having a cage mate. These guys play together all the time so I can't imagine having just one. They are an animal that gets bored easily how funny is that.


Thanks for stopping by my blog. I appreciate comments and Thank you for taking time out of your life to care whats going on in mine.
