Two Down

Free-Standing Lace Mobile

Kite Wall Hanging








Well, I got the first two projects done.  On to #3 tomorrow.  It’s almost 1 A.M. and I’m reloading the system on my desktop computer.  Had a Windows 10 problem I couldn’t fix any other way.

Today we did some errands including the pet store and then lunch.  Came home and put the mobile and kite together and got them wrapped for presenting next week.  Got another huge design coming up tomorrow and a laptop to load Windows 10 on (just received it in the mail from Amazon tonight).  Happily busy and feeling so much better now that the doctor fixed my medication situation.  It’s nice to feel like a human being on a regular basis again.

March Marches In

First Amaryllis of 2017- more are there now

It’s been a lovely year so far.  We didn’t have much of a winter so everything is green and blooming already and it’s barely March.  Our amaryllis are blooming and the barrel cactus has had babies for the first time.  Joy!

I finally got some sewing time in today.  We’ve got a baby due soon in our group of friends/rescue peeps so that’s where I started today.  I’ll try to post a picture tomorrow.  It’s free standing lace and has to dry after washing off the stabilizer.  I hope to get it constructed tomorrow so I can deliver it Monday (I’ll be in their area).  We finally opened the box for the cap driver for the 10-needle and it has exactly 1 page of instructions.  Hope we can figure it out when we get ready to install it.  LOL  We may be hitting YouTube for suggestions.  I have a surprise gift for someone coming up, too.  It’ll be a challenge I’ve yet to meet.  Then I’ve got ball caps to label; some just need names added, some need simple designs as well.  We’ll see what we can figure out.

We’re beginning to catch up with the dog vetting.  Khandee goes in for her 4 week post-hw treatment checkup on Monday.  Bandit and Dusty will go with her so they can get their yearly vaccinations.  Princess is due; my sister is going to schedule her and get her in.  Then I’ll have a few that will need dental cleanings which I’ll work into the schedule for the rest of the year.

R finally bought his trolling motor that he’s been researching for 2 years.  It’s kind of anticlimactic now.  He had to order it because they no longer stock that model.  It’s supposed to be here by the end of the month.  He’s been playing “boat” more lately, getting it ship-shape for the next fishing trip to Lake Livingston.  He’ll be ready to go when the weather clears up.  There’s rain due off and on the next couple of weeks but when it clears he’ll be long gone.
