I found this on Facebook on one of my favorite places, My Little Grouse House in Bloomington, ILL.
Are any of you NOT fed up with winter?

Black cats.

I like black cats, good thing, since I have to live with one.

Nothing new here with me except it is winter and reading your posts today, everyone is in the same boat.  John and I tried a jigsaw puzzle today but Walker laid down on it to take a nap.  We were saved from boredom this week because our library had game days.  Instead of spring break, it should have been called winter break.

I made some elephants this week and put them on a flower is never wrong blog.

Walker loves thrift store stuff.

 1.91 is a favorite price at Value World, and a half off coupon is even better.

He can get his paw in the little openings but can't get the mouse off to carry it away.  It keeps him busy while I drink my coffee.  Of course it keeps ME busy watching him when I should be working.

More about Pigs

Just when you think you are soooo smart and have this brilliant idea, you stumble upon someone who has had that idea before you.

I found this on etsy...thebagglady76 and not only did she use the button for the nose but she named her pig after me!  I have to admit, she is really cute.  Happy Monday!

Remember the pig I dreaded making (in my last post).  She doesn't look like she is supposed to according to the pattern I used by Brenda Sanker.  So I hope she doesn't see this post.  I did take liberties making her.

I hope you like her name.  Have you ever seen the movie "Dan in Real Life"?  That's where I got her name.

Happy Saturday and no I am not going hog wild.

Making Pigs and such...

 We have a big ol' wet nasty snow and Walker and I voted we would stay home.  Someone took this little piggie home, so she went to market for sure.  I really liked making her.
 So I thought I would make another one. But this one is huge and has to be painted (dread) and stained (double dread). It is being put on hold if I can find a place to put it.

Then I switched to something fun. Making something out of odds and ends.

Then ended up my March first reading this book.  It is precious.  Fannie Flagg says you will fall in love with Arthur Truluv.  I have.

Hope you have a good start to a new month!
