A SPIKY VISITOR, SHOW AND TELL AND THE NEXT PATTERN SALE…

Nope, not cranky, just spiky … Our first spike of the year! We started feeding because we were TOLD by the deer that it was time. We usually don’t start till end of December once hunting season is past and it gets cold and food is scarce but with the snow the other day I guess the deer got a bit hmmm, confused! and showed up at the bottom of the stairs a month early. Well a few banana and carrot peels later…this young man was happy…Not sure if that is his tongue or a banana peel sticking out of the side of his mouth…probably he was licking his chops!

And now some lovely pieces by…

Ann asked for a larger version of my Sheep in the Meadow kit so that she could make it into a little “rugette” for her granddaughter…

    Morning Loretta Spiky Visitor looks like a punch hooking or a rug. He would be amazing. A great show and tell. I am still interested in an oriental discussion/get together. I have been laying low. I fell three weeks ago on my knee playing indoor tennis. Not broken. Getting better every day but initially very swollen and maintaining a pretty good hobble. Had my physio assessment yesterday I am walking almost normally again. I have finished my mosaic. Needs pressing and a frame. Quite happy with the result. My new washing machine just arrived. So glad the old one died now not when there is 10 feet of snow.

    hugs
