I was doing a little embroidery on a piece of scrap material.
I was looking to making a crazy quilt someday with different free hand embroidery.
I liked this on so much I decided to frame it.

I have always wanted to be an artist.
I found this at a thrift store I love roses.
I thought some day I might try to copy it.
I need to look for some frames for these they will look much better in a frame.
This is a paint by number I did.
I like it and from far away it does not look like a paint by number painting.

Then I took a oil painting class.
There were 12 people there and we learned to paint by coping a painting the instructor had done. There were 12 different paintings. All looking like the painting the instructor had done.
But each person had their own idea of the painting so all were very different.
It was a very interesting class.
I really can't believe I did this so I got my moneys worth from the class.

Periwinkle the little puppy that Liz had
is still very small.
She fits in a wine glass I don't think she weights more than a pound.
Her litter mates are about 4 pounds and they have all been adopted out.
Periwinkle is very spoiled she thinks she is very big and demands to by carried around.
When she is down we have to be very careful she darts here and there and could easily be stepped on.
I am not sure if we will be able to part with her.
We still have to hide her from the cats when we leave just in case they think she is a large mouse.

I can't believe it is March and still snowing.
Did I ever say I hate snow? I do I do hate snow. This is Willona's orchard nothing but little twigs of trees.
It looks like we need to fence it in be for the deer eat all of them.

I think I am on my 20th pair of socks. I am running out of yarn. I can't keep up they wear them out as fast as I make them. I guess I should make them from steel.
I also made sweaters for all the puppies. We had two more litters with 12 puppies in all.
I am working on a sweater for Willona but I don't like it and might tear it all out and start again. The body is to small and the sleeves are to big.
It is still snowing if it ever stops I am thinking about planting a garden.
We went to Yakima for Hannah's Detist appointment.
You never know what you will find any more.
We stopped for a coffee and across the street was this guy advertising for a Tax place.
But what cause Willona to suck in air and say well I never, I never and she just set there with her eyes bugged out. I had to order the coffee and I asked the girl if I could take her photo.
She said Honey we don't do pictures.
But I did anyway.
I heard they were serving coffee this way but I had never seen one.
Now I have.
The coffee was very good and the price was right.
I guess if you have a butt like this you can show it off.

The kids were finally able to get a photo of Grumpy

Her name is Grumpy because she is. She is one of the kittens Jennifer had soon after she moved in with us. She is very pretty but very grumpy.
We are not sure why.
Hannah said it was because we called her Grumpy so we started calling her Bubbles that did not help so now she is called Grumpy Bubbles.
I think she wanted to be an only animal and we have all these other ones so she does not like any of them or us. Except maybe Hannah.
She is a great mouser.
