been having such a great week around here! Emma bounced back after
hitting a wicked rough patch in her cancer battle, Baxter kept me
company as I watched a zillion lessons about how to do surface pattern
design in Illustrator, I made my very first repeating pattern EVER…..it
was incredibly ugly…..but I DID IT! And I am soooo very proud of my
ugly pattern! And the cherry on top of an already great week…..this
beautifulllll Color Map arrived from Spoonflower. It’s a yard of fabric
with 1500 different color swatches printed on it that you use as a
guide when designing fabric on your computer. How fun is that???!!!
Now I’m ready to attempt to design some non-ugly fabrics! Eeeeeek!
Wish me luck and I’ll definitely keep you updated on my progress!
had a big check-up at Davis a few days ago and as always, she exhibited
her signature blend of sweetness, bravery, wisdom and mellow
enthusiasm. We learned that the chemo isn’t working but that’s not
surprising…..we already knew that it usually isn’t effective for her
type of cancer. But we had to at least give it a try. On the bright
side, the cancer has only gotten slightly worse since her last big
check-up two months ago. The oncologists think that she could have a
few more good months with us but we’re still hoping for a miracle and
that she’ll defy the odds! We will probably try some acupuncture and
holistic supplements too…….but for now, Emma is going to spend her days
being a dog, NOT a cancer patient. And that’s just fine with her!
Go Team Emma!
P.S. Emma used her fuzzy, baby brother, Baxter as a pillow on the
long car ride home from Davis and I’m not biased at all but I’m pretty
sure that this is the cutest picture in the history of EVER!
