I thought of another collection that I have - charms against the evil eye. I purchased this one here in Cairo, but I doubt that it was made here. To see some of my previous posts with these charms go here where you can also see my Trip Around the World quilt, and here and here.
I am a bundle of nerves this morning. Today's the day we have to round up the cats and take them in to the vet for the blood draw. They have to be sedated and blood taken from their necks since the other veins aren't big enough. Then there is all sorts of hassles getting the blood serum sent to the UK for official rabies testing. I'm trying not to think about all that - it happens this evening.
During the day we have some fun stuff planned - first lunch at The Nook which serves british-ish pub food (but no alcohol). My sweetie will be having the full English Breakfast inc beans on toast whereas I will probably have the Bacon, Mushroom, Cheese Buttie (sandwich on a baguette). After lunch, a trip to the carpet shop. I really doubt we'll find what we're looking for, but it's nearby and fun to browse through.
I have been unable to concentrate this week. Sorry, I'm not making progress on the challenge instructions. I will, promise, just not when I'm this discombobulated. Instead I've been doing more hand quilting on Terms, which is so soothing. Well, the quilt itself isn't soothing - rather obnoxious really - but the quilting part is relaxing.
We've been working on getting our place to stay in MD lined up. Still not completely set. We decided to go the honest route and tell them we have four cats, so I'm hoping they don't reject us once my sweetie gets the paperwork faxed to them. And we're doing the mental sorting of what goes with us in which shipment. Aiyee. I hate moving. We have about one month until we (okay, the movers) pack everything up.
