My greeting

Dishes in the sink, fabric piling up, cat hair on my clothes-all is well in my world!

Farewell to summer

This time of year I get a little melancholy- everything is shifting to winter and we all know what that brings! I used to look at winter as, well, I hated it! But now I try to look at it as an opportunity. Things slow down- at least after the holidays- and I hybernate and work on projects!

 My Christmas cactus is blooming!
 Josie is doing great! Love the tail draped up the back of the couch.
 I finished the baby blanket I was making!
 I left my project bag on the couch for 30 seconds and came back, and guess who had claimed it!
 I'm making some owl ornaments out of styrofoam pieces- need to do something with the eyes

The next few weeks will be very busy- I have 4 donation quilts to make so will post in -progress pix!

Chicago and no pix!

So I'm back from Chicago-still bone-tired because it was a whirlwind trip!
Forgot my camera so will just say:
Deep dish pizza is delish and one slice is a meal!
Driving in the rain for hours just,
Bob Chinns Crab House is fabulous and had THE best waitress ever!
The people I met were warm and friendly…
Lots of chuckles with great friend.

And on that note I am off to bed so I can be perkier tomorrow than today!

A quick word

No pics- just been very busy and am bone- tired.
I am going to Chicago this weekend with some friends. I am planning on taking pictures so I have something other than my beautiful kitties to put on here! I mean- I never get sick of kitty pictures but sometimes ya just gotta mix it up a little!
good week to everyone who reads this.

Josie and other stuff

I'm a bit late with Josies pic of the week- it was a little busy this weekend & I got behind.
One of the places I went was at the Erie County Fairgrounds. They had a PetExpo- lots of beautiful puppies, kitties, cats and dogs for adoption! Fun stuff for your pets too! Jack can attest to that- he got a peanut butter bone! Future project- I'm going to try to come up with a pet bed for the cages so kitties can feel more comfortable but you can still see them.
Here's Josie for this week- she loves lounging…and eating!
From my unfinished projects-
I finished my tablerunner! Just don't look too close at the stitching! Had a few problems with tension- oh, well.
The next two pictures are raffle quilts that my friend Claudia made and donated to raise money for Buffalo Paws and Claws. They turned out SSSSSooOOO cute! They were in her quilt shop - The Quilter's Daughter in Perry Center , NY for a while and now they are going to another shop in East Aurora- Carriage Quilt Shoppe.
I an honored to know such generous and caring people who support my fundraising efforts- I could not do it with out them!
