I'll spare you all of my not-so-clever racing metaphors today, but we are zooming towards Portland Quilt Market...Between the weather (think snow, snow and more snow) & the work load (11 weeks to go) it feels like I haven't left the house in weeks.
I'm working on some colorations for one of the new lines...With 30 drawers full of color chips, the mess on the top of my desk is only the tip of an iceberg. I'm attempting to blend a new idea and colors with some of our LakeHouse Library favorite patterns and colors...Making no predictions yet...fingers, toes and eyes are crossed...
Meanwhile, we've had a lot of drama with the kitties...Jasmine, my "Rescue Remedy Kitty" disappeared over a week ago off the property. Paton and I searched around-the-clock for days. It's been absolutely heartbreaking, as she had shown such promising signs of accepting us and being indoors this winter. After spending every night (and a lot of days) in a basket on my desk for the last three months, and accepting a lot of attention, she vanished.
Vickie-Dixie had to have 4 teeth pulled last week. My guess is that her teeth got bad when fending for herself and her kittens before she got to the shelter where we adopted her. She has been a model patient these last few days. Here she is enjoying the radiant heating in the (yet unfinished) bathroom.
So now we are caught up a bit...Lots more to show and tell.
Back in two shakes...H2
One more important thing...I had promised three give aways to the first 3 new people visiting the blog after my recent guest posting on the Jolly Jabber. The winners are Corey, Erin and Babara from Feb 8th.
It looks like two of the first three have no tag back, so I need emails addresses from you gals ;)
