Here's K'Ehleyr....she's happy as a clam to lay outside and soak up the rays. Not so fun when she comes in covered with dead grass on your freshly vacuumed floor...
And here's Mopsa....who rarely leaves my side. She wants in the moment she goes out. She follows us around, or lays in a spot and watches the action.
She's not spoiled. Ha.
Thanks to all of you who voted in the poll....It's a record....15! Now if I could just get more than 3 comments...hm.

Have a lovely weekend!

Hubby and I were talking tonight and he said "You and I are 'supposed to' people." We do things because we're supposed to. He's right, and it's an interesting phenomenon that all people aren't like that. And honestly quite infuriating. It seems to be becoming more rampant, anyone else notice that? My daughter is definitely not a 'supposed to' person. My blood boils when I think about it. But I'm not going to get off on that.
p.s. The guy says there's an electrical problem with my sewing machine and it's not worth fixing. It's not even a year old. He said he'd be happy to show me some machines in their shop. Yeah, I just bet he would! He said this about my last one. We're going to go get it and pack both of them up and get a second opinon. No, I haven't finished the pants yet. And all I have left are the cuffs. Too busy reading the last Harry Potter.

What wasn't good is that they've started construction on the highway I use to get to school. Sigh. They are widening it, I assume, so this will be an ongoing issue, so I'm trying to just accept it and know that it's going to take me longer. I have a poll about this issue, please vote in the sidebar if you'd like.

Anyway, this block is finished. While it looks like a Valentiney treat, it is actually a BOM for a Christmas quilt. BOM=Block of the Month, though for me it'll probably mean something more like Big Ol' Mess! I will be starting this one next, which is also a BOM.
Any one embroidery? How do you feel about hoops, stabilizer on the back? Any other ideas/suggestions?
OH! And I was searching through old posts yesterday and I discovered to my horror that I am an exclamation point person! I mean, it's ok to be an exclamation point person in the body of the post, but I have an outlier number worth of post titles that have exclamation points at the end. I'll try to restrain myself! ! ! !

Speaking of special....I have been nominated for a couple of awards recently. I don't mean to take my ball and go home, but I've decided not to participate in awards. But, consider you, my reader, nominated. If you would like to participate, bop on over and get the button from one of these two lovely ladies!

Like I need something else to try.....I downloaded this free pattern and started on it. So cute!
I saw this idea from Jennifer, and it's been ruminating in my head. I have no wall to cover at this point, but I think I'm going to try it on a clipboard, so I scoured the Goodwill stores for some books to destroy. I got all three of these plus two paperbacks to read for $6.50. I was compelled to straighten the books as I browsed. Must have been that first job in a bookstore.
I love books, don't you?

This news story. And these videos of my blogger friends deaf/Deaf son, who has a CI. Check 'em out, and remember how blessed you truly are!
p.s. I won the fight with the evil machine! We'll see if my pants get done! :)
