So the last time we met, I don’t even remember what I wrote about. So here’s what’s been going on – we now have 3 cats. Two years ago in May, our Sharon, Peggy, and I captured four feral kittens in the back yard of the house in which I now reside. One of these kittens was this fine boy here, Crumb:
We also caught two of Crumb’s sisters, Bean and Truffle. Bean has now come to live with us, which means we now have Haley (who is 17 this year!), Crumb and Bean. The two orange kitties occupy each other most of the day now, which gives Haley the peace and quiet she deserves. She’s currently sleeping on her fuzzy dog bed in the middle of a sun spot in the living room. Here’s all three, L->R: Bean, Crumb, Haley.
I haven’t been knitting or spinning lately. I completely got sucked into cross stitch again after not touching it since I was 8 (so…. 23 years!) and all thanks to our JessaLu. Here’s a sampler I just started working on – it is the 2013 Woodland Sampler from the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery.
Look at the cute little mushrooms! I started in the middle since I have the entire pattern, and will need to work my way back up and back down to complete this but it is going quickly. Those gals over at FPS know how to make addictive cute patterns so now my life is consumed by embroidery floss and q-snap frames.
The only other thing that has been going on is a lot of time spent in the gym. I’m going to post about that adventure tomorrow since it has been a while since I’ve discussed certifications and teaching and fitness crap in general.
