Hi all,

What gorgeous weather we are having the last few days... well after 1.5 inches of rain and the cold front that came through:) It is getting closer to Spring and Mother Nature is teasing us every week:)

I finally caught Baby and took her to Emancipet... a low cost spay and Neuter clinic in Killeen. She was 2 weeks pregnant but is now all spade and running around again:) I kept her in a large carrier over night and part of the following day after surgery. She was ready to go out for sure!!! I opened the carrier and then went inside and had closed the screen door.... well she climbed right up it.... so I opened the door and out she went:)  She has ventured back in to play with Bob. Now I thought Bob wouldn't have any problems with Baby being in the studio.... wrong!!! He was So not happy!!!  Guess she can visit but not move in:) Too funny!!!


I was busy quilting this week so let's get to the pictures!




Karen from Maine made this lovely:)
I quilted lots and lots of feathers …

Sad week here:(

Well we lost a fur baby this week:( MisKiti was 4 years old and came to us on her own with babies inside her little oven. She had her babies and we kept her and 2 of them:) Jax and Gemma. She hasn't been herself for almost a month... not eating like she used to, so tried all different foods whenever she wanted something to eat and she still lost weight. She started sleeping and staying away more and more so took her in on Tuesday. They did all the blood work and Xrays. Blood work was all good but the Xray showed an obstruction in her intestines. So exploratory surgery was needed.... they found a big cancer tumor, her intestines were ripped and it was also pressing on her stomach. We had the choice to save her and of course then chemo but would that really be a good life for her and then they were only giving her a year or let her go and be free of pain?  So I let her go:( Hard but right decision. So that was a horrible terrible Tuesday!!!! She is greatly missed!!!!



Monday was a gr…

Hi Ya'll,

Another week has quickly gone by!
I had class in Austin at Sew Much More with Bianca. Only 1 more class and it will be embroidery... not the basics she said since we all know them:) Learned a lot of stuff about my stitches and making patterns from them... will I remember? Probably not but I can always look online:)

Tuesday was lunch and errands. Wednesday was an allergy day:( Thursday was more errands... bought a recommended Texas Cedar Allergy remedy and started it right after I got home. Really works!!! Take 15 drops 3x a day and then yesterday started it 2x a day. Feel great!!! Started hubby yesterday... also a success:) Found it in the healthy aisle at HEB. They also have weeds and trees so when Ragweed, cottonwood and Chenopods come into season I will getting some:)
