Yesterday, we went and bought 2 outside Christmas trees, I only wanted one but dh said they were so cheap we'd have 2. So one is for the outside of the house and the other we're planting. (we did this the first year we moved to France and the tree is at the other house, god knows how many metres tall and we can't bring it here *sob*)
Anyway, driving out the supermarket car park and I saw out of the corner of my eye a car hit a kitten/small cat.... and bloody drive off !!!! (sorry for swearing but i'm still fuming) the poor thing was jumping up in the air, arching, blood coming out of it's head, a bit like when their playing with a mouse.. :( DH got out the car and went running to it, a fellow brit carried on driving out car park, nearly finishing the cat off and just missed hitting DH in the process... other people just stopped and stared :O(
It was still alive although obviously not going to survive, but we've had cats run over and we've had cats go missing but we prefer to know what's happened to them even if it is bad iykwim. It does us in wondering where they are.
So he went knocking on some doors with a dying kitty but no one knew who owned it or even offered to help :(
The vet is just down the road so we drove there to see if she could put him/her out of their misery that much quicker...Saturday lunchtime SHUT !!! So I phoned and explained, oh I'm not near the vet's now.... PFFFF and the poor thing had a pulse but it's eye's were shot, head bashed in, totally not going to recover, so DH just smoothed it and stroked it until it took it's last breath :(
We put it in a bag and left it on the vet's doorstep, she said she'd dispose of it.
So quite a sad Saturday, DH is a right softie and he and I were upset all day :( but we did our best even if it wasn't good enough and someone was loving it and stroking it when it went wherever little kitties go.
I didn't feel upto making the little runner I wanted to make to go on my singer treadle cover, so I got busy this afternoon...feeling like rubbish with a first day of a cold, mindlessly sewing was the answer :)
Katy@imagingermonkey and a jelly roll scrap from Lynne@lilysquilts my hall feels more festive.
I had a go on the Janome with a couple of FMQ Christmas trees, I used an aurifil green variegated. It's much easier to drawn on my wipeboard/paper than it is on the fabric but it's more adventurous than the stitch in the ditch I was planning.
I've only just noticed this second looking at the post that the last two rows are in the wrong place...oh well too late now lol ;o)
