Comfy & Snug ~ and Needful Things...

Here is Suzy ~
Snug as a Bug in a Rug
next to woodstove in the Keeping Room.

she looks so comfy, doesn't she?
and isnt' she shiny? she has always had a beautiful coat...
can you believe she is 15 yrs young??
my baby, constant companion & shadow.
and Miss Joan & I went out today ~
we went shopping at Cottonwood in Charlottesville, VA ~
because, well...you know...
I NEEDED fabric. (really?)
no. not really.
I just suffer from the same addiction as most of you reading this ~
I just have to have it around to look at. & fondle. is that weird?

but I mean, LOOK at it...
blues, browns, cheddars...
~ black, more brown & blue ~
....always civil war repro's ~ always inspirational ~ always needed ~ right?

and I also bought this book by Renee Plains...
I'm sure you have all seen it, but if you haven't it's a goody.
and the sweet Red Basket that holds it all came from my friend Beth's shop,
Bittersweet Branch Primitives
(www.facebook.com/bittersweetbranchprimitives)
her shop is a delight, full of charm & whimsy ~
unique items & Good Things and Beth has thee greenest thumb ~
her shop is located at
71 River Road
Faber, VA 22938
if you get a chance to stop, do ~ tell Beth I sent you!
Well, I am off to stitch...
I am working on the Susannah Hoffer Marking Sampler,
and some models for upcoming classes here at the farm...
I'll be posting the class schedule tomorrow ~

Have a wonderful evening folks!
blessings from the farm,
Lori

Love that braided rug! I just took a class on how to do that yesterday and I love all the "hit and miss" colors. Sweet kitty too.

Ahhh, I love the look of that comfy cozy fireplace with Suzy kitty relaxing all stretched out. She is a beauty :o)
I need to go snooping through my fabrics for florals so I can create some Spring Easter goodies.

I looove your cat Suzy...and isn't it fun how they just 'love' you and 'need' you unconditionally ... I have one that is my shadow as well...

I have a passion for fabric...and the colors you bought are wonderful.

Hi, Lori:
Suzy looks just like our boy Biggie.
And he's super shiny, too. I like your fabric colors. I'm sure you'll come up with something fabulous made from them.
Hugs,
Susan

Maybe it's a black cat thing...my Melrose barely gets any rest on my busy days...following me back and forth, up and down...Suzy looks so happy!

Yummy new fabrics, I can see why you had to have them...I'm working hard at no buy this year...good thing a dear friend sent me a gift certificate to a quilt shop ;->
