Marvelous Portrait

We don’t get a chance on the computer much. A furry sick Dad, work, laundry, appointments and Mom’s total inability to do the blog using her phone or tablet, NOTHING HAS BEEN SHARED with you my furrends!

Now I must tell you about the art Mommy has been doing…apparently embroidery is easy to carry around and pull out in Doctor’s offices and waiting at hospitals.

First here is the picture that lead to the art being thought about. Mom was trying that Photoshop Water Color filter that CK’s human does such a wonderful job using and she really liked how it turned out.

Starting Point

And then Mom turned the computer art into a sketch.


She thought it would make a really good embroidery.

First she traced it onto the material using carbon paper.

Then she started stitching

And more stitching

And more

And more

Almost final

Mom just about stopped at the “line drawing”. All she had left to do was add the whiskers, but the Dad was back in the hospital, so she started to embellish

And today, she finished the circle! Mom says it is done, except for washing out the carbon and ironing and framing


I LOVE it! And I am going to share it on Athena’s Artsy Caturday! Click her icon to see all the other great art!

Daddy is Home!

We were quite purrturbed when Mom and Dad got home on Caturday. Dad came in with a really noisy machine attached to his face. He sat in his chair and about 10 minutes later a guy named Steve showed up bringing all kinds of noisy stuff!

Dad’s room now has a noisy oxygen condenser in in and it makes a whoosh whoosh noise 24×7. We thought his C-Pap machine was noisy!

Mommy has been furry busy. She crushes Dad’s pills an uses a humongous syringe and she feeds Dad through a tube in his tummy! When we asked what was the matter, Mom told us that Dad has a disease called ALS (Lou Garrig’s Disease). Mom says that Dad will not get better. So we have been loving him as much as we can.

We have been taking turns sitting with Dad. But we’ve not been ignoring Mom either!


Here are me, Cinnamon and Kozmo helping Mom work, Yes, she is still working so she can keep her company benefits package.

And here is Jo Jo, holding Dad down. Where am I?


I was watching the snow fall and as soon as there is about 4 more inches, I’ll let Mom know that she needs to get out the shovel!

I don’t know when we will get a chance to post again, but remember, we do LOVE to go and visit our furrends on the tablet and we try to keep up with all of your antics!
