Crazy June, Annabelle and my new look

Good Saturday Morning, Friends!
How does life get so crazy?  WOW!  I went on vacation for a week, had a great time, then spent 4 days in bed with a horrible migraine, went back to work for a day, then out of town for a conference for three days, back home for 12 hours, then off to a quilt retreat for the weekend, back home for a day and then Annabelle had several seizures and she spent a couple of days at the University of Wisconsin Vet hospital and I was a wreck!  She is better now and we are in the midst of working with the docs to see what the best thing to do for her is in terms of medications.  She had a "special" heart that doesn't work properly, so that complicates things too. We knew this when we brought her home two years ago, but I had already fallen in love with her via e-mail pictures, so no way was I leaving her with the breeder. I don't think anyone else would have taken her and she was already in my heart. So, we decided to get Zoey, too, so that Annabelle would have a familiar friend with her at her new home. So they are really twins, who don't look alike at all!  Two years later Annabelle is still with us, though the breeder didn't think we'd have her for two months.  SO glad she was wrong.  Anyway, this has been a CRAZY month!  I joined a "Vintage Vacation" swap and it is a lot of fun collecting things for my new friends! :)

I hope you all have a great weekend!  I am still working on my new look, but haven't had a chance to connect with Michelle to get it finished.   I need a little special help, because I know NOTHING about computers or the blog world. I am luck to get a post posted!

Take care!  Love and big hug,
Shannon :)

Back from vacation

Hi Everyone!!

I am back from vacation as of last Saturday and other than being pretty sick for four days, it was great!  We all had a wonderful time and our 15 year anniversary was perfect!  Annabelle and Zoey had fun too!  They had their first trip to the "lake beach" and I should have pictures soon!  They are just so cute!

I am now sewing with a few friends this weekend and having a blast!  I am working on a butterfly quilt and a Gingerbread applique quilt!

Hope you all are having a great weekend!

Shannon :)
