Good Tuesday morning everyone!!! the house is tidyed up, I have a nice toasty fire going to take the chill off the house..our nights (last) and this week are supposed to be in the upper 30's and 40's..so the chillians are laying by the fire..with the exception of baby Stewie..he is laying on my lap as I type this..he has become my little blogging buddy..he loves his mama..and you know I love him..yesterday I got a wonderful little surprise all the way from Canada from my good blogging buddy Kimberely of my brown bag Studio..she spied a candle mat that she just had to have..so we did a swap..and this is what she sent me..she made and painted this wonderful penny mat..the top is muslin..Kim you do beautiful work..it will look nice on my table with a candle in the center at christmas..;0)
and she also sent me the halloween bunting..I love it!!! my very first one..
looks great with all my other fall/halloween goodies.;)
I finished the penny rug stockings..and inspector Stewie at your service making sure the quality is there folks..lol..
yep..everything seems to be in order...
I sewed on NOEL buttons to one of them..
rusty bells to another one..
and wooden stars to the last one...if anyone is interested in one or all 3 just let me know..will be posting them on my etsy site sometime soon..
I looked out my kitchen window this morning to discover that my dahlia had opened up..love this beautiful orange color..just in time for fall..:)pretty huh?
and it has 2 more buds on it..not sure if they will bloom..but I am happy to have the one that is..;)
I got a wonderful thank you card from another good blogging buddy Carmen of the primcats..I sent her a little surprise in the mail and she sent me a wonderful cat thank you card..Carmen you are most welcome..isn't blogging the greatest..we are our own little wonderful group of guys and gals and such generosity and friendship..there is nothing like it..I can't believe it will be 4 years in February that I started on this journey..and I have met soooo many wonderful and giving and talented people out there..truly an inspiration and just the best.)
okay this made me and hubby laugh..this is how we found our "goose" on sunday..she was out..
here is a close up of our little girl..do you think she is comfortable?...she is just one laid back kitty I tell you..
and this was taken last night on my lap..Stewie was comfortable as well..Hubby was able to run upstairs to get the camera and back down and snapped like 4 shots..he is getting so big..and still loves to snuggle and nurse..we are both smitten parents of these babies..(all of them really)..they bring us so much joy..
well that is it for me today folks..Yesterday I took Tucky for our 2 mile walk..was done in 37 minutes with 2 pooh breaks..we hoofed it..and then I spent an hour or so raking the leaves up in the back portion of the yard..and today I will mow up whats on the lawn to keep up on it..if the weather holds out my friend and I are taking a walk today...looking forward to spending time with her..so I hope your day is full of warm and cozy moments.;)
thanks for stopping by and saying hi and for the birthday wishes for hubby..he did get his steak dinner and loved it..;)
