A few finishes...

Because I don't have enough of my own UFOs (just kidding, I really have a ton), I have to finish other people's work.  I picked up and finished this little embroidered piece and then framed it for a small wall hanging.
Another finish for an upcoming program.  This one is also a wall hanging and I wanted to go out of my comfort zone by using colors I'm not normally comfortable with (ORANGE) and solids at that!  
My life has been chaotic lately, to say the least.  Mother has been in and out of the hospital, we have been watching her dogs and things are just upside down here.  I even finished another piece but for the life of me, I can't figure out where I put it.  I keep sewing on though and hope to post another photo tomorrow of a lap quilt I am gifting today.

Have a wonderful day and think spring!

Greta likes the Library!

We are fortunate to have a little library in our neighborhood.  It's great to have access to books to read and the owner does sweet things for the kids and the dogs in the neighborhood!  
Greta has learned to love trips past the library.  She practically drags me there on our morning walks!

She knows there are biscuits in that thar library :)  And she gets one when we take our morning constitutional.  

Seamus isn't interested in biscuits.  As a retired Therapy Dog, he still maintains a "no treat" rule outside our home.  It's nice for Greta to get something special while she visits us!
Have a great day!

February Funk

"The sun did not shine. It was too wet to play. So we sat in the house all that cold, cold, wet day. I sat there with Greta. We sat there, we two. And I said, 'how I wish we had something to do!' Too wet to go out and too cold to play ball. So we sat in the house. We did nothing at all".....--Dr. Seuss, poodled.

32 days until Spring and we are in the normal February Funk.  Not enough exercise, too many grey days;  no wonder I lose my creative mojo during this weather.  

Sewing does help and I have a number of pieces in the pipeline just waiting for the final binding stitches.  I hope to post a few photos soon.

Hugs and stay warm!smile emoticon
