Whiskey & Jackie

Who already is a ball-hound.

Who is a typical bouncy Jack.

Wacky Jacks

Diagnosis: crazy.
We are.
We admit.
Wanted a playmate for Annie...
And couldn't separate the last 2 of the litter.
Both females.
Both sweet as can be.
And love to play.

Mohawk Annie

Annie sports a Mokawk often when my son is around.
I think she is one sweet stylin' dog.

Here is the finished "Tree of HOPE".
It will be donated to the Relay For Life cancer fundraiser.
The quote is Emily Dickensons... on hope.
The piece came out about 18" X 24".

...and more birds

Above are two blue birds perched on branches...
with a patchwork background. (8"x10")
And below is a section of a larger piece placed under my scanner,
as I have been unable to get a clear photo of the (unfinished) whole... you just get a sneak preview this way.
Yes, I love birds and trees...
and am having such fun with the Juki.
Happy Weekend.

Stitched up some little birdies to further entice Spring to come here....
The weather-lady is predicting snow on Sunday...

Let's sing a song of Spring...

Come on Spring!

Thank you for all the wonderful comments, each one warmed my heart! Linda and Lisa were right, the soreness crept in... day by day... but I am thinking I'm at the turning point now that the pain will lessen day by day....

Back to the sewing machine yesterday and made a Spring flower ritual to bring on the warmer temps! Shine, sun, shine!

Happy Weekend!!

Time Out

Not feeling too artsy this week...
time for a bit of a break...
A new driver didn't quite understand that when you turn left in an intersection you let the oncoming traffic thru first. She hit my little Honda CR-V with a big 'ol Ford truck.
I am in much better shape than the Honda.
I was thrown as far as my seat belt would let me go and back to my seat again...
Air-bags did their gig, and I walked away in very good condition! PTL!
I actually exited Starsky and Hutch style thru the drivers door window.
Seriously I'm fine (I know I'll get questions on this) just have some sore ribs and neck and shoulder.... on a scale of 1 to 10... I'd have to put the pain level only at 1.
: )
