The above photo is of some sheepies that I watch for when we take the trash off on Saturdays. There were three new dark babies last Saturday. My son took the photo with his cell-phone through the car window. Click on the photo to enlarge it!
Am still making some Prayer Shawls for the hospital, but no quilting yet. Hope that will be possible when it gets warmer out. The cats are doing fine. Earl grey and Hemi like to race up and down the hall at least once a day. Shizuku turns 18 this month. She and I celebrate our birthdays together (although I am not turning 18). She is doing good for her age, but she does complain a lot.
It looks like Spring here, and I am thanking God for the flowers (not the pollen) and warmer temps. God Bless us everyone !

I happened to think the other day....wouldn't it be nice to teach someone local to use my machine and quilt some of her (or his) quilt tops and mine too. Most of mine are for one Charity or another. My machine is over twenty years old now, but it is still working fine (as far as I know, since I have not used it since October). Like with a lot of quilters, I have a large stack of small to bed-sized quilts to get quilted. I have given up on being able to quilt them myself, as I would have to stand up to quilt them. I have a feeling that I may be in a wheel chair soon.
(Photo is an old one, taken a couple of years ago, by me.)

Hemi is still an indoor cat! I thought maybe when the weather warmed up he would go back outside. He likes the food better in here and has about doubled his weight. Without weighing him, I'd say he weighs over fifteen pounds now. He is one of the best natured and sweetest cats I know. He loves to play, and even lets Earl Grey bully him around. (He loves to catch Earl half asleep and wash his face!) After a little research, I believe that Hemi is a Ragdoll! Shizuku-chan recently turned seventeen. She has her ups and downs, but is mostly doing well for a cat her age. Spring has sprung in North Carolina, it has gotten too hot, too soon. Thank God for the air conditioner!
