Just another update.
Wiggles is doing well; just a little upset in the tummy with the chemo, but we have pills for the side effects. She's gaining weight again; since she had gone from 14lbs to 11lbs over the last few months because of the chemo, but at her last trip(last Friday) she was 11.8lbs and I've been giving her extra food to make her gain weight. She's loving it.
I've been loving the spring weather we've been having and so have the dogs. Beautiful weather means nice long walks.
Made some progress on my tiny house, but I still feel like it needs to be more polished off before I post pictures. Today I finished the roofing and made a very tiny bookshelf that's just 3 1/2 inches tall out of popsicle sticks. I've added quick drying plaster to the exterior as a faux stucco and I think need at least one more layer of that before I can paint it. I've chosen a sage green for the exterior paint color and I think I will make the roofing a dark brown. I'm undecided as to what color to make the bookshelves, but I've gotten a pretty teal paper with a dotted texture to be the wall paper inside the house. I will be making all sorts of fun bity things to put on her shelves, from bottles to books. I'm excited.
I've started a new project as a gift for my mother-in-law's birthday that's coming up this month. I'm painting an ocean scene onto some pretty sea green fabric and I will be sewing it into a pillow cover for a down pillow I got just for this project. It's a very time intensive project as each layer of paint needs 4 hours to dry before I can go over it with more detail and I have to fit it in between my classes at school. I've decided to make it a scene of the sea life that is specific to the Texas Gulf region as she lives in Corpus Christi and absolutely adores ocean/beach themes. My in-law's house is entirely in beach/ocean theme with metal sea life on the walls, paintings done by local artists of the sunset on the beach, etc. Their Christmas tree is even a light up palm tree! XD I've chosen to make something for her as we can't really afford to buy her something at the moment, and she has so many shinies and things already that I think something custom and from the heart will have more of an impact than something purchased ever could. I will post a pic once the project is complete.
I'm still making ribbon bookmarks off and on, and will post them as a finish each set. I'm almost done with a new set, using monster buttons, I'm just a little uncertain which ribbon to use for the last three monsters.
As far as sewing goes I've also made some lace belts for my MSDs, using decorative ribbon, silver chain, and black lace. Not sure if I'll post them, they're cute, but not really all that impressive. Maybe once I've gotten them into outfits that they go with I will show them off.
School is going great. I really love my teachers this semester; they're funny, engaging, and make references to current events, and make the subjects relevant to your life.
