Hi everyone

Well it's been a busy week so far!  I have been trying to get caught up on swaps and boms but I think I have a good ways to go yet!!

My dogs and one cat went to be spayed and neutered  on the 16th and that has taken up a lot of my time this week. Having  four spoiled and sore babies was hard!!
  I have been  working on my hand sewing  the last week. I have the  coasters for a swap hand appliqued and the embroidery done  now to put them together.
I finished the applique on Snowbound now to do the buttons and embroidery on them this week.

My husband fixed my old machine for me (the new one got sent back)  then it went  and died on me for good!! so My son  set up the back up machine for me and got me a light for my head and a needle threader so I could get it threaded when he wasn't here to see for me!!LOL  it seems to be working good for now so  I have been trying to catch up on my String of Pearls quilt by Christa Quilts  I hope to get it to the quilter this weekend.

I finished step 10  on the Plenty of Fish mystery quilt as well only a few more then that one will be done as well.  That should be two Christmas gifts completed once that is done.

I worked on my Christmas Stocking swap and the Santa Sack swap nearly got that all completed as well. So many  nearlies  but not enough done!!

I also got the Ranchers Daughter block done at last not too happy with this one but hopefully  it will look ok when I put them all together.
This is a picture of my son Kyle I'm going to frame this one once I get it enlarged perfect  Happy picture!!

Hubby was rained out a lot this week which was good in one way , he was home to help with critters but bad in another we really could have used the money!!  He did get  odd jobs done around the house for me sinks, drains and even built a new house for the turtles this year!!
Well I had better go and get some work done before the day gets on too far.  Hope you all have a great week!!

ps Poor Cletus had problems  so had to go to vet this morning. They say the knot will go down but he has to stay conned for awhile.  as you can see He doesn't think so!!!!  Kyle couldn't get him out of the truck at the vets so the vet came out and tended him in the truck!!!


  1. So many lovely projects, with so much news and lovely photos :-)))

  2. Hey Jennifer - with Pets and Projects - there is never a dull moment! Cheers.

  3. My goodness you have a lot going on. All your projects are great.

  4. It's hard to choose, but I think the snowman is my favorite. Please post when buttons and embroidery work is done. It's a positive that your animals are neutered.

  5. Wat heb je mooie projecten onder handen!

  6. What a lot of work you accomplish. Great applique!
