I've finally got around to doing a post.
It's been a trying 3 weeks since Tom had his surgery.
The wound got infected and we have been going every other day to get it dealt with.
After the surgery he had an Ileus, this is when the bowel decides that after handling it will go to sleep so to speak, and so we have had to contend with getting that back to normal as well as him feeling very weak and not feeling like eating.
But today I feel like we have turned a corner.
Often the carer in these situations gets over looked but I can vouch that it is as wearing and as upsetting as the patient.
Anyways, my caricature patchwork is almost finished.
I raked through my box of bits and found some appropriate words and have embellished with a few beads and fancy stitiches.
As you can see in the bottom left I am now herring bone stitching some narrow ribbon all around the edge.
Then it will be the oval edges to finish, add a few charms and I think it will be complete.
I have to ask here if anyone knows how to make a photograph tiny.
I'm no good at this technical stuff but I have an idea for the next page and I would like to make some of my cat photos into small cameo sizes.
I have an idea its to do with pixels etc but would like some advice.
