I have been home for a week..

and I still have a mess. Needlepoint, knitting kits and interchangeable circular needle kits!

Come see the inexpensive project bags. $25 each!!!

I DID! I declared no more ornaments!

Despite that, I fell victim to a hormonal rush for my new grandpuppy and a new baby coming to my friend Theresa of Homestead Needlearts in MI!

Therefore I was HELPLESS
at market when I saw these!
The bottom two are on 13 M for those of us who have trouble finding the right hole, unless we have all of our stitchy-aids! $46 each. Call and let me know your druthers. T won't let you have her puppy, so you'll have to settle for one of these.


Since the Big Guy doesn't want to go through a puppy experience, I think I will make a flock of these!

This is Bear, a native of Romania. He was 6 months old on Friday and has been here for 2 weeks. He lives with David and Liz in S. Hadley. He has a feline brother, Dash and a feline sister, Aria. Both cats have let him know his place in life and everyone seems to be getting along fine, now.

Aria is sitting in the cat trap!
