April Happenings

Hollie & her mom

Sisters ~~ Hollie and Stella 

Hollie ~ 12 Weeks Old

Muddy Paws


Happy 11th Birthday Dottie!

I'm planning on ordering some of the new Lizzie Kate designs -- I just can't make up my mind which ones, lol.

I'm slowly getting my stitching mojo back, but any stitching will have to wait.  I managed to tear ligaments and fracture my right wrist over the weekend.  I had sprained it moving firewood over the winter and thought it was healed, so I wasn't wearing the brace while helping Hubby cut down an apple tree.   Hopefully I'll get the ugly cast off by the time my daughter graduates in June.

Praying for all those affected by storms and bad weather.

Be Safe!

Happy Monday

It's still pretty chaotic around here.  Hollie, the grand-dogger is still here, growing fast and getting into whatever she can find.  

Found Hollie laying under the antique desk.  I turned away for a second and looked back to find her sleeping there.  Silly puppy sleeps just about anywhere :)


There are several of these finches visiting my feeders.  I was thinking they are House Finches, but my neighbor says they are Purple Finches.  Whichever type of finch they are, they are a very bright red and are always singing (when they aren't eating at the feeders).

Still haven't started any projects, but I did have a needle and thread in my hand the other day.  Three dog toys needed some repair thanks to the teething puppy.

Are you having spring weather or winter weather in your area?  Or maybe you're having weather like we have in Illinois -- more than one season in one day!  I've been told that this is normal Illinois weather, but I don't remember ever having the strong winds as often as we have had.  The strong winds that hit on Saturday took part of our roof off the house.  Several of our neighbors also lost parts of their roofs. Hopefully we can get our roof fixed soon.

Have a great & safe week!
