The Latest

First of all I must apologize once again for the stellar pictures.....The last month has been such a blur I seem to rarely have the patience to dig out the camera especially when I have the camera phone in my pocket. A poor excuse. But there it is.

The mystery from my last post turned out pretty well I think.

I had hoped to knit these guys all their own winter wear ....but instead came up with a creative alternative.  SOCK toes! :)  (The blue scarf IS hand knitted and the other scarf is felted.  That's where the handmade stopped.)  The snowmen with 3 "balls" have removable heads for that secret post Christmas candy stash!

In the midst of the Christmas preparations Layla had a cyst removed from her tail.
She is not very happy with me.
I take her with me in the car this time of year to save her from having to spend the day in her crate.
But leaving her in the car she gets bored....
Hence the cone of shame.

We found out today the cyst was benign.
The BEST Christmas present ever!  She is such a faithful friend.  And will be 12 in February!

The house is coming along!  You can see them working on the siding here.This picture is only a week old and they have already dry walled the interior!

It's time to start doing my stretching exercises for all the painting I need to do.  It was a trade.  I paint.  And we can afford new storm windows for the old section of the house.

Here you can see the side of the studio.  Soon I will be able to wander out any time of the day and jump right into work.

I can hardly wait!!
