This is Lady, looking pathetic and minus a lot of her hair. It had to be shaved off at the animal emergency clinic where she and we spent a large part of Saturday night/Sunday morning. You see, Miss Lady decided to rush out past Mr. Muddling to chase a cat, and she got hit by a car passing in the street. Thank God, he was not speeding or there might have been a different outcome! She had a bad cut to her abdomen which required internal and external stitches and lots of bruising and abrasions, but she is recovering nicely, for which we are extremely thankful.
We've had such beautiful weather, the chickens have decided it is Spring and started laying again! This is yesterday's haul, which is not bad, considering that we only have three chickens and they are not young! I do love our chickens. I know. I'm weird that way.
I finished sewing this top together last night. Here you see it "webbed" which is a good idea I picked up from the very talented and informative Bonnie Hunter. I have learned a lot from her, and yes, I WILL finish Grand Illusion!
This is the one I started to escape from Grand Illusion. It went together really quickly. There was not a pattern, I just "muddled" it to completion. Sometimes you just need to play without referring to a plan.
Ariel has inspected it and given it a pass, so far.
The peach blossoms are still on the tree, no freeze yet. Aren't they pretty!
The yellow angel trumpets on the other hand have sustained some frost damage to the upper parts of the plants, but the lower parts are still blooming away! I like their tenacity.
And here's someone I really like. Bruno is my faithful companion. No matter where I am or what I am doing, if it is at all possible, Bruno is right there with me! Love my dog!
I am thankful for so many things. There will always be hard things to bear in this life, but there will also always be things that bring you joy. I choose to dwell on the happy things, and I hope you do, too!
Hug and kisses,
