Winners

First things first...here are the winners of the give away

The North Wind: Krista

Home of a Needleworker: Kaisievic

Spring Quaker: Lisa V

Jingle Bell Xmas Farm: Margaret


There wasn't much stitching lately...only a bit progress on Emma Miles


The main reason for this lack of everything is me becoming a zombie. I NEED my sleep but not getting much lately.  My little Ashley's heart is starting to fail her. Something we know would come sooner or later. And after years of happy sleeping under my bed, she doesn't want that no more. When things go haywire, it frightens her and she needs to be close, and will wake me up. And being worried,  my sleep became that light that even a bit of  snoring will wake me up to check on her. And believe me...lol...Cavalier King Charles Spaniels do know a thing or two about snoring.  You could call them experts.

Here a picture how we spend our nights together these days. Excuse the blurry in it, but at 5.30 am I'm not able to concentrate on anything but to pop the first tablet into her.  At least one of us is having a good night sleep :)

Thank you for the prize, Gabi! I'm so excited! Your Emma Miles is looking so pretty too.

But I'm so sorry to hear about your little Ashley. :( I know you must be so worried and I also understand the whole sleep thing. It's hard to sleep when you're anxious in the first place, but you also want your baby to be happy and comfy. Yes, I totally understand. I hope you get more sleep, and I hope poor Ashley gets better. :( Big hugs.

Krista said...

Wat wordt je Emma Miles mooi. Wat erg voor Ashley dat hij zich ziek voelt en voor jou dat het je nachtrust kost.
Maar je hebt alles over voor je huisdieren, zodat ze zich veilig en comfortabel voelen.

Veel liefs en een knuffel voor Ashley,
Evelyne

Emma Miles is so pretty! The A&E and the border are just wonderful.

I'm so sorry about Ashley. I know how sleep deprivation feels. Then, combine that with worry and it takes exhausted to a whole new level. I'm sending good thoughts your way.
