Just comments about my art, kids, animals and the eccentricity of it all.

My son brought this home to me the other day. They were cleaning out fencing where he works,others wanted to just throw this away. Ma Boy new his Ma would appreciate it.

The art of the nest, perfect craftmanship, and the finest tiny eggs imaginable, they are the size of the nail on your pinky finger, how precious.

Done, done and done.

It's about time I got this thing done!
It is called, "Fall into Winter" .

It it quilted at an average of nine stitches to the inch.

Crazy time consuming.

This is my Flying Fox....

Most of the blocks are my originals.

It took a stinkin long time to finish it, I work on things put them away, get it out, work on it some more, put it away again.... took forever to finish this one.

Now its done, I don't know what I'll do with it, put it away for my boys to fight over someday, that is if they care enough about it.
I'd like to get better photos of it these are of it just draped over the fence.
It is a pretty thing if I say so myself.

First week of August

Almost have this done!
Running through the sprinklers on a hot summer day.

Mommy ( Minime) watching over her babies as they play in the mud puddle under the faucet. If I get too close she will launch herself at me and try to beat me to death with her wings. She is a tiny little thing but incredibly fierce when it comes to her babies.

Lynx, also known as Bathroom Kitty, laying on my desk.... she has the finest, longest whiskers I have ever seen.
We have decided to call Mr. Tinky, The Pirhana. Holy Cow, it is a good thing he is super tiny because if he was a regular sized dog the begging would be intolerable.
He has found the delights of people food.
All my dogs are beggars but this little guy is the horrible. Add a ton of cute-factor to persistent begging and it is pestering at its worst.
He is under his blankie right now, I will try and post new pics of the little stinker and his sweet girlfriend, Miss Piggy.
