Update on Jed 2

Yesterday, Jed had to go for his second Melanoma vaccine, which would have gone better if I’d given him his sedative pills a couple of hours earlier. As usual, he became suspicious of the machinery etc., so had to be muzzled. The vet said he was too clever for his own good and knew what was coming. Poor Jed!

One of the lady’s on reception sent me a photo they took of Jed when he was sent home a week after his operation. He jumped up on to the seat next to me and looked so happy to be going home. As you can see.

How to make a simple Tartan Cushion

Sitting in a waiting room recently, I thumbed through a copy of Ideal Home magazine and saw a Tartan Cushion with a fringe and buttons. I thought, that looks really good. I could make that for a fraction of the cost, so I have.

I ordered a metre of Tartan material from Ebay in Balmoral Mulberry. There were loads of different styles and colours to choose from. It’s a wool effect and washable. A metre is enough to make 3 cushion covers approx 18″ square.

The instructions below might seem fiddly but it’s not. It took me no longer than half an hour to make for a fraction of the cost of buying one. Also, there’s no fiddly zips to put in as the cushion just slides into it like a pillow case opening.

Update on Jed 1

Well, two weeks after coming home, we went back to have his mouth checked out. And I was really worried he’d have to have it repaired but, thankfully, the hole wasn’t too big and Prof. Bacon said it may well heal on it’s own.

His Melanoma vaccine has been ordered and paid for.
