Weekend Wanderings!

Well, I didn't get too far away from home this weeknd, but I did manage to visit my favorite woolen store a few miles from my house.   My mission was to get some spring colors to add to my stash and refrain from coming home with more than I would lift! Its a great place to shop for wool and I feel so lucky to have them so close by. If you get a chance, please visit them in cyberspace at The Woolen Needle. I restrained myself from buying too much wool this time -- only enough for some new projects. 

One of my projects is a barter I am doing for Gina at Cat Nap Primitives. She is making a baby bib for me and I am making her one of my sitting kitties. So, Gina the pattern is all cut out and I will be stitching it up this week!  The kitty I am making for Gina is my own design and one I've made before - but this time the kitty will be a tuxedo cat instead of a champagne colored kitty.  From my new wool, I used the mottled slate blue for the watering can, and the pink check for the middle of the flowers. I also cut out more wool for a second kitty, that I will list on my eBay site when I'm done!

It was a rainy weekend here is eastern Iowa. At the farm we got over 2 inches of rain and here in town about 1.3 inches. Thankfully, that was all we received with a little heavy wind - no damage and no tornados.  I took this picture of one of my flower beds -- all the lovely petals are off the crab apple tree (sigh) but the hostas are springy up nicely!


  1. I can't wait to get my kitty...I will get yours made too..think I am going make you two of them..not telling you what though..Have a good one.,:)

  2. My chin dropped when I saw the kitty. What a stunning job! I am soooo envious of Gina right now!
