I am a bit behind myself this week - this was meant to be a work in progress Wednesday post! Poor Wilbs had a seizure and frightened G, I must admit that the longer it was going on I thought it was curtains too but thankfully the dog popped out of it as if nothing happened, and straight away went to his food bowl looking for dinner!
If you've never seen a grand mal seizure in dogs, its quite a thing. He fell onto his side, eyes wide open, neck arched and mouth chomping while his little legs were running like crazy. The danger is in overheating so if it happens again we have to make sure his temperature doesn't go too high and stick valium up his butt - I kid you not! He's 9 and pushing on, poor mite. I must say though he his loving all the extra attention we've been giving him!

Most of the rest of the week, when I've had a chance I've been playing with Hexagons. There must be something in the air as I've seen a few Hexie posts this week.
on this web page at Bead Merrily and thought they'd make great patchwork placemats so worked them out with 3/4" hexies too.
Then I started playing with spacing the hexies and found a Star of David pattern. Not sure the religious connotations on this one! Still, I like it with the darker grey background on the top left.
I know its nearly Halloween but if you are in the mood for more Christmas inspired projects, Ho, Ho, Ho and On We Sew is being guest hosted this month by Sandra Sews and Ella & Nesta's Little Room!
