I was thinking of including my sad news on my next sewing post, but I think this deserves its own post. Yesterday, we had another bobcat attack. This time it got Chickie von Poopenstein. It didn’t take her away, but her neck was badly injured. We weren’t sure what the injury really was, but her… Continue reading Sad news

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I hope everyone had a happy and safe celebration. My New Year’s Eve was great. Maybe great for a 90-year-old, but great nonetheless.
