I will be adding a few braids of hand-painted Merino combed top this evening. Here's a peak:

Sorry my entries have been so sparse. Poppy is continuing to improve, but fighting some kind of stomach problem. Taking her in to see the vet yet again on Wednesday to try to fix it. :)

On a Poppy note, she is continuing to improve. I just took her off the pain medication today to see how she does, and so far so good. :)

Fiber club giveaway WINNER!!!!!

And the winner is.........Beadmomsw on Etsy!!!!! Using the random number generator above, your number 48 was selected!!!! Congratulations! I will be contacting you today to arrange for your custom dye of 8oz Cashmere/Superfine Merino.

Thanks to all who have participated! Poppy is doing much better and the MRI that you helped fund is what allowed the docs to determine a diagnosis and treat her. Without the MRI she would still be in very poor condition. If it were not for all those who participated in so many ways, the MRI would not have been possible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. :)

Poppy update

I started Poppy on the Western med protocol yesterday, despite my reservations. I could not get an appointment with a good holistic vet until next week, and that vet suggested I put her on the steroids for the time being just to give her some relief. She's been on them since yesterday and thankfully her mood and mobility has noticeably improved. I'm still concerned about the side effects, but so far so good, and the holistic vet should be able to give some alternatives or healthy supplementation. It makes me so happy to see her wag her tail again after this month long struggle.

Will update as she gets stronger.

Thank you!!!
