Bom 8; Live life on the edge!!

Hoorah!!! here at last is this months free Bom. Can't believe it's number 8 already and only 1 more to go.

You can find the PDF pattern here

I've sort of been living my life on the edge for the past few weeks - but more like a knife edge than on the edge of exciting roller-skating like this little lady.

My uncle died a couple of weeks ago, after a short illness - he was 85 but it still came as a bit of a shock and sadness.

The day after that I went to have nitrogen put into my tyres (which should have cost £5.00) and came out with 3 new tyres and a bill for £200.00 instead.
Then I was told that I needed new suspension wishbones and wheel alignment for the princely sum of £200.00. The car is now repaired!! Thank Goodness.

The day after that, my husband found some suspicious lumps on our Jack Russell, Henri.
We took him immediately to the vets expecting to be told to keep an eye on things, only to be told that he would have to have them removed.
Two days later I was sobbing having left him with strangers to be cut open and operated upon.
The vet thought the lumps looked suspicious and we had a worrying week of imagining putting our baby through more discomfort and pain.

However, yesterday the results came back and I can quite happily announce that the lumps are fatty necrosis which are nothing to worry about it.

They are pretty much lumps of dead scar tissue probably from Henri knocking himself during one of his many antics.

We are so relieved and hopefully now life can resume some normality.
The good news is that I have been taking lots of orders for quilts and think I'll be busy right up until Christmas sewing away.

I'm afraid I haven't had much of a chance to comment and look at your blogs but will rectify this at the weekend.

Enjoy the rest of your week.

I'm so pleased to read that Henri is ok! What good news!!

I know cars can be really expensive, but at least you got all the work done before the winter and you can drive around in the knowledge that your car is in tip top shape before the snow and ice arrive.

Busy, busy, busy! You know what they say, if you want something doing, ask a busy person! I'm glad all your troubles have come to a satisfactory close. Here's to lots of sewing!

What a cute dog and so glad that everything worked out. I came across your blog through a Yahoo group that alerted us of your BOM pattern. I just discovered redwork/embrodriey and I love your patterns. I plan to frame each one and put on my walls in my crafty room to remind me to enjoy life. Thanks again.
