I went to another craft get together this month. I chose to make this brag book. I’m sending this one to my sister, but don’t tell her, she doesn’t know yet. She became a grandmother and she is so excited!!! So I figured this little brag book would be just the thing. 🙂
It was easy to make, but if you need the instructions I will let her tell you on her blog because she loves to pick things apart and show how they are made. 🙂 There are 6 double sided photo holders in this brag book so you can fit 12 almost 3 1/2 by 2 1/2 photos in it. I had to cut the patterned paper just a tiny bit smaller than 3 1/2 by 2 1/2. You can get the photo holders either wide or tall. I chose the wide because I could get all the ribbon on the top that I wanted :).
I finished going through the fleece and picking out all the vm (vegetable matter), you know the straw, little twigs, weed seeds etc – getting it ready to pack up and mail to the fiber mill tomorrow. They will be processing around the 15th, then I should get it back about 4 to 6 weeks later. I will post a picture of the roving when I get it back. I thought there might only be about 2 lbs, but I am wondering now if there is maybe 3 lbs. It will all get spun up anyway. :).
I had to take Thor to the vet on Friday. He’s had some IBS problems and was in some distress. The vet put him on some antibiotics to see if that would help but they also put him on a steroid, because that had helped the last time – the last round of antibiotics were in case it was ulcers, but she said it probably wasn’t, it was more than likely IBS and the steroid would help, the antibiotic is a just in case thing. He’ll be on a higher dose of steroids for 2 weeks and then we start weaning him down to the lowest level we can get that keeps the diarrhea away. She said all in all he’s in pretty good health for a ferret his age. His blood sugar was borderline low, but the steroid will also help with that. She also said his potassium is also borderline low, so he will be happy to get his piece of banana everyday back again :), if I notice any muscle weakness, the vet said I will have to put him on potassium of some kind. I’m just glad he’s feeling better and happy again ;).
