I have been trying to stick to a Sunday evening posting schedule. We had an enormously FRIGID weekend with trips from the plumber for frozen pipes and the like. The blog was forgotten. Needless to say, canines were not overly enthusiastic about long walks in minus five degrees! So, we stayed indoors and ate cookies and baked cakes and sewed. And did laundry – great hulking amounts of laundry – goosedown comforters, sheets, quilts and the like – all because Miss Tula has lost her mind and is peeing randomly on beds, couches, etc. I don’t know if she has a urinary issue or perhaps a MENTAL issue! What I know is that this cannot continue. If there is anyone out there who has some PUG insight, I would be eternally grateful for shared information. She uses her pee pads, but seems unnaturally drawn to the sofa or the bed where she squats with abandon.
Meanwhile, I wore warm socks and worked on a quilt and went to see the Matriarch this past weekend. We approach the five year mark of the passing of my father. It does not seem possible that he has been gone for that amount of time. It is too cold to go to the cemetery to visit. So I speak to him in the early dawn, while walking dogs. I tell myself that he can hear me. I tell him that he left too soon and that I’m still pissed about it. There is no answer.
Working on a piece for a friend – just snippets because it is not ready for a debut.
A Liberty of London teacup. Precious.
A small child with a mirror, combing his/her hair? WHAT hair!!!
We must have Alice – what nursery is complete without the Looking Glass?
A little kite face – one of my all-time favorites.
We must have books and an aloe plant. This sweet quilt is nearly finished. It’s been a great joy to create! Stay tuned for the big finish later this week.
