A sampling of my designs as well as personal stitching, and life in general.

Yes, it is a real "holiday" or celebration might be a better word.  Then again, every day seems to be a cat day in their opinion.

Thanks to our kitten, rapidly moving towards that first birthday, we now move furniture on a routine basis.  It seems that he likes things, anything, that he can push, pull or pick up and then moves it to a hiding place.  I never realized how much space was under my dresser in the back.  Last week I was going crazy trying to find my watch.  So I moved my dresser,not an easy feat.  There was my watch, two missing bottles of nail polish, a chapstick (one of many missing) and some torn paper.  Yes, I have a cat that likes to rip and eat paper.  He has chewed my referral for a doctor, a bill and a box (at least one edge).  Those are just what we know about for sure.

Then there is the cat who is nearly 5.  Calm, relaxed and tolerant of humans to a degree. He doesn't come out when there are guests here.  Though if they stay longer than a day, he will finally wander out.  At Christmas, it's a game of who sees Max first and who scares him off first.  He has made it clear to the kitten who is in charge, even though the kitten is now slightly larger than he is.- height and length, not pounds.

Sad news

Sad news for the needlework world.  Though this is a bit late, word seems to be just getting out.

Sylvia Murariu has died.

 For more information see:

We'll miss her wonderful designing talents, knowledge of Romanian lace is all its facets, and sweet personality.

I always enjoyed going to seminars ,etc and spending time with Sylvia.

Too young to be gone.

This was definitely us on March the 1st.
Lots of rain and in the evening there was even sleet
Lots of Thunder, Lots of Lightening
And now we are barely above freezing.
I know I'm behind in everything.  I did change out the Christmas picture at least.

Yesterday March arrived with a huge bang - lots of rain, thunder,  lightening, etc.   I was even dreaming of the sump pump failing.  Does not make for a good night's sleep.   Temps are now back down in the 30's.  I think I need another vacation.

Happy March !
