Just a few pictures showing what we've been up to.
Stewie is so happy to have her cone off. This is a big deal as she has had the cone on for about a year now. She is still taking weekly allergy shots and she is also on steroids for now. we're waiting until all the hair grows back on her stomach before we stop with the roids! In the meantime we have her pumping iron downstairs to bulk up.
A few weeks ago she got locked in our bedroom closet all day and when she finally got out, you could tell she had been digging in her stomach. Must have been because of the stress. poor thing. In the meantime, she is so happy to have her cone off like a real cat.
Rob has been working the outside trim. He took down all the gutters and is replacing all the trim around the roof of the house. The painters are coming next week to finish it up for us. It will look so great when it's finally done.
Here is a really great picture of him from the kitchen window.
I also finally finished the hemlock ring blanket. I first saw this at brooklyn tweed blog. I tried to block it, but it still needs to be blocked again and stretched out a lot. It was actually a pretty difficult knit if you have troubles following directions like I do. It was pretty quick though and the outcome is really pretty. I used the Cascade Eco Wool that the pattern calls for and have a lot left over.
Stewie likes it too!
