Good News/Bad News Redux

I will not waste much time on bad news because the good news is so good it deserves to shine alone.  So, except to say that “It’s still tax season!!!” I will get on with the good stuff!

Granddaughter’s surgery went well and at the moment she is free of pain for the first time in six months.  We are praying that it is a permanent fix and looking forward to her getting back to being the happy, energetic girl she has always been!  Now that the worst seems to be over I feel like I have a weight lifted from my shoulders and everything seems easier.  Thanks so much to all of you for your prayers and healing thoughts.  We felt your love!!

I have started the Berry Tart Hat—that is to say I have started the pie pan and making a point of enjoying every minute of it since the berries are difficult and time consuming.  Also still working on the green Peapod (baby snuggle sack) which will eventually have a hat to match.  Time is at a premium and the work load is the same as most years, but we seem to be moving in a more efficient path than usual.  I have only had to haul out the lion-taming chair and whip a couple of times. 

Macy and Max have been good little fur-people while we have been spending lo-o-o-o-ng hours away.  Macy loves to snooze in my lap while I work,
and Max, as always, is good time Charlie and wants to play at the most inopportune times!  Still, we could not work/live/exist without them and, as I said, they are good babies!! 

I’m hoping to be able to post more often (please don’t anyone count the number of times I’ve said that!) and share some new recipes as well as the Peapod pattern when it is written.  Moving along….

Life is good!!  (How could anything be wrong with a world where the Red-winged Blackbirds come for breakfast?)

The pea pod snuggle is your own design? Fantastic! I am eager to see its progress.

Your fur-people are adorable and look like a lot of fun.
