Hair Cuts!!!!

Sky and Storm spent the day at the Spa yesterday. They have been unwilling to let us comb them since Simon joined us, back on Thanksgiving. As you know, they are Persians and must be combed daily or the result is massive knots and matting. After many attempts to comb them out, and many scratches, we decided to take them to the Spa for cuts. We opted for the Lion cut for them. Now you must understand that they are the loves of my life and I think that they are the most handsome, most adorable cats on the planet, I would do anything for my boys. The thought of them having any pain from matts/knots pulling on their skin horrifies me. This cut removes any chance of that. It will take about 6 months for the hair to grow back, so that puts us around August. They should feel quite comfortable throughout the Summer months. During this time I can get them used to being combed again, they will see there is no pulling or pain, and hopefully we won't have to do this again. All that bieng said, I think they came out so adorable! They are just the cutest pair of little lions I've ever laid eyes on! Fist the before pic. Now don't scroll down and spoil the fun!

Sky is Cream, and Storm is Black Smoke.

Now for the after pics!

Aren't the just adorable?!!! Humor me, if you must. I know they have to feel much better, and they are much more comfortable.

I'm Back!

Okay, so I've been back a week. Where has the time gone? I've been catching up from my trip and the week flew by. NH was COLD! And it did snowstorm while I was there, of course. But I made it home fine.

The 2 charts I picked for my prize were Dragon Charmer - Josephine Wall, and Spread Your Wings - Renee Biertempfel. Thanks again to all involved! AC Moore had a sale Sun. & Mon. DMC floss 6 for $1, so I got the floss I will need for both. The receipt was about 15 feet long!!! I won't be starting them anytime soon. I have to get some work done on Dark Cherry first. I am still on page 1! ARG! The sparkle in the moon is just killing me. I'm using PTB but it's not cooperating with me this time, don't know why. Here my progress

Happy stitching to you all!!!
