oh...how sweet...

oh look...here's Tippy,
our Maine Coon ~
curled up in my antique Appalachian Baby's Basket,
snuggling with my early Cat Print Dolls....

Tippy is 15 years young...
she 'adopted' Peter & I long ago~
we were looking for a kitten, & she found us....
needless to say, she has been a sweet & constant companion,
and has grown up with Hannah...

Speaking of which,
my baby,,,my one-&-only~
my world, my love & my heart,
will turn 16 yrs. old on
December 20th...

and we will celebrate her wishes:
**dinner at Red Lobster
**Ice Skating
**shopping at unique Vintage shops in Charlottesville
**a simple cake & ice-cream party
celebrated here at home with those she loves the mostest...
(per her requests, of course)


I have begun work on my patterns for the upcoming
Primitive Quilts & Projects magazine...
I have pondered over projects:
Hmmm...should they be:

Cross Stitch
Wool Applique
Rug Hookery
Primitive Stitchery
and Needle Punch has won...
I've dusted off my needle,
Found my threads and
sharpened my pencil~
stretched weavers cloth on frame and...
{{ oh...but you'll have to wait to see!!!}}
I have had a bought of Laryngitis this past week
no doubt from standing in the freezing snow at last saturday's parade...
but now...
I have the full-blown-flu...
or is it the
Flu Blues?
either way it is not nice~
....and hope none of you come down with it.

So I am off to bed yet again,
to snooze & sniffle and snuggle with Suzy
(my cat & constant companion)
and dream up wonderful dreams of wool...thread....

Hi Lori,
Sorry to hear you are not feeling well. Think I might just drag it out a bit if I could cuddle up to your gorgeous cat. Hope you are feeling better soon.
