Sneak peak of winnings

WOW is about all I can say.  Yesterday, I got a package from Land of Odds from my winning piece Black Notice in the Illustrative Bead Tapestry contest.  I had the best time last week sitting here in front of my computer screen putting whatever my heart desired in the "CART" at their fantastic website.  I didn't even look at prices!  I just said to myself..."I want this, I want that, wait...I'll take two".  It was so fun. Chris did tell me that I should save a little of the prize shopping spree for future projects, so I did cut back a little bit.  Well, the package arrived yesterday.  Weee.....




Here are a few sneak shots of what was in the package as I opened it.  Now eight of the tubes came open upon shipping, so I had a real bead soup surprise in two of the bags. As nice as the bead soup looked, I couldn't not let it stay that way.  So after 6 hours of sorting, I have everything back in their tubes waiting for me to take more pictures & share more of the fun I am having.

Took the girls to the Vet yesterday.  Fiona's Hemoglobin A1C is a little high, but if I vary her insulin too much, I observe that she is more comfortable with the higher dose per day.  I guess I need to make sure she doesn't push her way into Arwen & Frodo's bowls.  Arwen is doing okay.  Four months now since her bladder cancer diagnosis.  After discussing a few concerns with Dr. Miller, we decided to have her on a daily course of antibiotics and reevaluate in a month.  She's still a very happy dog.  If you didn't know she had cancer, you would never realize it by how she acts every single day.

Very yummy!!! Congrats on winning again.

I'm glad you have found a nice, even road with the girls. They do talk to us in their own way don't they.
