Today it rained and not just rain, but down poured.
I think we received all the rain we didn't get in all of March and April.
Remember the warm spell we had in March?
It was wonderful but I knew it would turn into a cruel joke Mother Nature likes to play
on us who depend on the weather for our livelihood.
Last week after freeze warnings for the whole weekend
we had a solid week of rain and cloudy days.
It's ok though because we all need a break now and then.
I caught up on a few things.....not as many as I should have.
I will never catch up and the list will never end.
About a month ago I received a lovely gift in the mail from Suzy of Suzy Qu's Threadworks.
I was so excited and photographed everything right then but when
I looked back at them I decided that they weren't up to par.
I had taken them too late in the day and they were a bit flat so I vowed I would reshoot them on a sunnier day. It was worth a try.
Well sunny days came, and sunny days went and I kept busy with
......well too many things.
those plants sure are demanding:) even if they can't talk.
And so I tried but once again the lighting wasn't great but I didn't want to wait any longer.
Suzy is an artist when it comes to sewing and could probably make just about anything. She has a real talent for putting fabrics and
different elements together. Some people just have an eye for that.
I urge you to see her blog and her creations.
You won't be disappointed.
When I get some time during the Summer I hope to make a few things with what she sent me.
As bloggers we are so lucky to have friends that send us sweet gifts like these. As I write this I'm touched that someone that lives thousands of miles away from me, that I may never meet, who lives in a country I may never get to see would take the time to collect up pieces of their collection
to share with me. How special is that?
Suzy I love everything you sent and am so happy to have met you.
And now I'd like you to meet a new family member of ours and another reason why I have been extra busy.
Our new sweet baby boy Petey. He's a rescue we got about a month ago. I can't believe it's been a month and I'm just showing him now. George thought I should wait until I knew how it would work out. I was so excited I was telling everyone.
That's kind of the way I am. George is the opposite!
He's like a steel trap.
Me I'm ?<;(*^#))blah blah blah!!!!!!!
what do you want to know??? which is why blogging is so hard for me sometimes. I have to restrain myself.
Ok why am I talking about ME? see!
Well I have to get to sleep, it's really late and so I'll tell you about Petey another time.
Say Night Night Petey.
Actually he's already asleep and snoring.
