Angel Obsession

This was a busy day and a hot and humid one at that! Luckily I got to spend some time today chilling at an ice rink! Tomorrow is supposed to be even hotter and more humid! 

I worked on some more angels today....I finished this one!

She's cute. Tied on to a pair of candlesticks, she would make a nice hostess gift for the holidays. 

Or tucked here....

or there....she adds some country charm wherever you place her.

Started a few more angels too! Here they are lined up on my ironing board. They haven't earned their wings yet....soon though! They are a great way to use up fabric scraps and lace. I plan to make my next batch of angels out of  white and cream colored fabrics.
I admit they have become my latest obsession. They are very fun to make, can be completed quickly and can be personalized for a thoughtful gift. I promise that this will be my last angel post for a while. 

Speaking of angels, below is my furry angel, my beautiful girl Ellie! She was rescued in the South and brought North. We found out that she was heartworm positive even though she tested negative prior to her arrival in December. It can take six months to test positive.

She has had a rough day. Prior to heading to the rink this morning, I dropped her off at the vets. She began the injection portion of her heartworm treatment today. I picked her up this afternoon and she has not been feeling well. Her activity will have to be restricted for the next several weeks.

In this photo which was taken a couple of days ago, I was in the middle of a photo shootand she jumped up and sprawled out on my crocheted table cloth! Ahhhh! She likes to be in the middle of my business at all times. I love her to pieces! She is a sweet dog and I am so glad we were able to adopt her! I am hoping she does not suffer any complications during her treatment. PAWSitive thoughts for Ellie please!

That's all for now! I will be sleeping with the dog tonight as she seems to be uncomfortable and a bit restless.
