Geez.....

OK...where did the last week and a half go?  Here's one of the reasons:
Poor baby.  This is Klawd.  No, he is not going to the hairdresser's...he is wearing the latest in veterinary fashion...a soft "cone" collar.  Under that collar is a tube that was put in place to help feed him.  See the little bit of turquoise "sweater" he's wearing.  That covers his belly which had some very serious surgery.  Gallstones...which blocked the entrance to his small intestines....But the good news - he is on the mend and the tube will be coming out tomorrow.  Klawd will be one happy kitty. He is defnitely feeling much better and letting me know just how unhappy he is with all this stuff.
Bits of stitching did get done...here's my WIP on Eight Maids a Milking from the Twelve Days of Christmas from Nora Corbett.  Just her apron and the banner at the bottom to finish her.

A little bit of applique...my letter "E" from Merry Christmas to All.  Oops...I think I forgot to post the finished picture of my "M" for this one.  It still needs the bow to be appliqued as well as all the extra buttons and ribbons to be attached.

There have been a few sporadic stitches on a few other projects.  Nothing really worth showing at this point...but keep watching!

Aww, poor Klawd! I hope he is on the mend and back to his old self soon. Nice stitching and applique!

Lovely work! All the best to Klawd, I hope you can soon take the burqa-thing off him.

Poor little furry boy! Hope he feels a lot better after his visit to the vet's to have all this stuff taken off him.

Merry Christmas to All looks like a fun project to work on with all the applique and embellishments.

Klawd looks so grumpy (and adorable) in that picture!
Great work on both your WIPs.
