Rainy Days and Stitching

Boy did it pour to beat the band Monday!  But after the dry summer last year it is nice!  This was the view out the kitchen window.

And I am trying to work on the cardinals again.

And yes, I have started a new Names Of Jesus project for a former Pastor of ours.  He is having a tough time in his church right now.

And here is a shawl I am making with some clearance cotton yarn I found awhile back.  I was so happy to see it on sale as I can not wear anything made of acrylic.

And I bet you wouldn't want to see any pictures of sylvia Joy!  Here she is just watching the world go by.

Always up for some Dad scratches.

What is that praying mantis doing on MY window?

And now a grasshopper?

Thanks so much for visiting.  huggles and blessings.

I feel so lazy after I visit your blog....I have so many things I want to do and the day gets by me. At least I am all caught up on unfinished projects. So happy to see Sylvia joy gets visitors....the odd thing for us is that since our Ethyl passed on no critters come to our patio anymore. We always had squirrels and chipmunks, frogs, local cats, raccoon' no one. Lucy does not sit in the window like Ethyl did....Ethyl had a lot of friends.
