Ishbel

So I’ve been quilting and knitting like crazy around here.  I keep meaning to post, but the days seems to slip by… so here I am again 20 days later.  Anyway after Stitches and my Miss Bab’s yarn purchase – I couldn’t resist the gorgeous Violets – I casted on… I decided it’s finally time [&hellip…

The State of the Garden 2013

So admittedly I’m not much of a gardener… stuff just grows on it’s own around here… Anyway… when we moved here 8 years ago the hydrangea was in bloom and never bloomed again.  Well this year with all this rain it’s bloomed and this time pink.  Last time it was just white or I guess [&hellip…

When it rains…

Madison is on the mend from a nasty UTI.  Poor thing is getting both meds and pain killers.  She’s started to chat away again and that tells us she’s getting back to normal. Then my poor vacuum, which I bought way back in June of 2003 and has served me all these years, had the [&hellip…

Daisy Mae’s New Do

Poor Daisy… she grew in the biggest coat we have ever seen on her.  Granted she’s only 3, but last years all molted at once when it was deemed not needed for a warm winter.  This year it just started matting to her, so poor thing got a lion cut. Here she resting up for [&hellip…
