Third Finish For 2009

I apologize for not being around this week. I have no idea where it went! Luckily I can say that I have been busy, although it hasn't been all 'good' busy :o( More on that in a bit.

I was able to put the final touches on one stitching project :o) Here is Dewdrop by Just Nan -

Again, I think he's super adorable. The flower button is a little overwhelming but I'll leave it as is for now.

To be honest, I've never been a huge fan of Just Nan patterns but I really did enjoy stitching this one and I do look forward to stitching Peter Cottontail. Come to think of it, I only have three of her designs and they all have rabbits in them :o) LOL!

Speaking of bunnies, my little pal Pickles has not been doing well this week and I've been beside myself worrying about him :o(

Luckily I've had years of experience with rabbits and after observing his symptoms, I was able to narrow things down by doing some research on the internet. On Saturday morning, I called a local vet and was able to get him in for an appointment. Luck must have been on my side again because the vet that was working was their 'bunny specialist' :o) Dr. C was so good with him and Pickles didn't even growl at her!

First she checked his GI track and that seemed good. That was a huge relief. She left his teeth until the end and that's where my other suspicion lay. She came across one sharp molar on his right side and even showed me on the monitor through her camera scope. Too cool! So it looks like that may be the culprit to Pickles' problem. He's scheduled for a 'procedure' on Tuesday to remove it and then hopefully he'll be back to normal. My boy is 11 years old so I'm a little worried about them putting him under but I must keep positive!

Pickles is being such a super sook that it's almost hilarious. This is my grumpy man who just wants to be petted and doted on. The macho man has disappeared. I might as well enjoy it while it lasts because he'll no doubt revert back to his ways once he's fixed up ;o)

Cathey, you were right. Pickles had something wrong with him. I was suspicious that it was the move but luckily, you decided to take him to Dr. C.

Your bunny picture is awesome. He is just sweet. I also like your new Avatar, very appropriate!

{{{Love and Hugs to both of you}}}

Dewdrop is soo adorable, I love it. Not sure about the button, either. It's super-cute, but...

Pickles is so sweet! Hope he feels better on Tues.

I love your JN bunny, he is pretty and adorable, I am not sure about the button either.
Hope Pickles gets well soon, poor thing...

Brigitte said...

Your little bunnies are so cute, the stitched and the real one.

Daffycat said...

I adore your stitched bunny but your Pickles is a real cutie too. How long do rabbits usually live? I hope Pickles feels better soon. I am allergic to bunnies so I couldn't have one for a pet and that makes me sad.

Cute Just Nan bunny, but I think your Pickles is cuter ! Hope the procedure does the trick and he feels better. BTW your photobooth snowmen look cute !

How did I NOT know you had Pickles??? I only thought you had Brie...where have I been? Pickles is SOOO cute and I'm glad you got his little problem figured out! Dewdrop is fabulous! I'm hoping to get that one and stitch it up to go along with Peter Cottontail soon.

Nancy said...

I agree with everyone ... Dewdrop's too cute, but Pickle's sweeter! I'm glad to read you found what was ailing him - hope all goes well on Tuesday.

Rowyn said...

I didn't realise you had a bunny too. He's gorgeous! Great photo too. I hope Pickles is feeling better soon.

Your stitched bunny is so cute. Glad Pickles is on the mend.

Dewdrop is beautiful :0) Get well Pickles. I live out in the country & we have rabbits that love to come run around in our yard especially this time of the year.

Ranae said...

Both bunnies are adorable.
I hope Pickles gets feeling better.

DewDrop turned out so cute. I like a lot of Just Nan's stuff, mainly the cute (like DewDrop) or Halloween type ones. Glad that they were able to figure out what was bothering Pickles. Hopefully when they get the tooth taken care of he's totally back to normal soon. They were concerned on Jaz due to her age with having to put her under to do her leg too, but she did fine. They do so much better at monitoring that these days, and being able to use only the amount really needed which helps.
