Last chance

to show the colors of the month from Project Spectrum!! I've had these photos for over a week and keep forgetting to post them! I've been really busy doing who knows what??
So here's some color for you!

And this~~

Ok~had enough?? yeah, me too! I had some really nice ones and they seem to have been eaten by this thing! My camera batteries have taken a dive too so no more photos until I get to the store and pick up another set of rechargeables! Is that a word??
Spring has sprung! It's been really beautiful here the last couple of days. All the plants are coming up and flowers are everywhere! OK--I lied they are coming up everywhere but my yard! Not quite sure why but I've never gotten into planting flowers~~not unless they're in a pot on the deck! I must brag a little~Beth from one of my lists gifted many of us with seeds from her last years gourd and sponge plants(yes, sponge) and my seeds are up!! I'm so excited!! I have visions of vines trailing all over trellis's and birdhouse gourds and sponges hanging off them!! Course, I don't have the pots or trellis's yet but hey, at least the seeds are started!
Birthday week is over for another year. Having three b'days in four days is really annoying! After all these years you'd think I'd be used to it!
KK and I spent a relaxing day today. He puttered around outside all day and I kind of drifted in and out. I mulched, came in and read a bit, had coffee went back out. Stood around and watched KK working, came back in and sewed!
Much cleaner!! Some days you just don't feel like getting in the dirt and today was one of them!
So instead I did this
Yeah, I know I said there were no flowers in my yard~well, those aren't! I sort of stretched to my neighbors and snapped this photo quick! I couldn't resist! Guess it isn't the best picture of the bag but the flowers are great!

Finished this one,too. So you can see I've been busy.
Haven't done much knitting though.
Manage to do a couple rows on my fluted banisters
at night while watching tv
but tonight I don't even feel like doing those couple rows!

Ivy's doing good. I think she's enjoying the nicer weather too! Today was the last day on the antibiotics so hopefully she'll get her appitite back. Tueday we go back to the vet to get her stitches out. They must be bothering her now because she's rubbing her face whenever she can. I'll be glad when this is over!

Doesn't she look comfy??

Time for me to do the same!
Off for bed~~

Back at Last!!

Seems like I've been gone forever! This thing finally bit the dust a couple weeks ago and I was totally lost without it! Got it all fixed up brought it home and DS hooks everything up and the monitor blew! Now what the heck are the chances of that?? So another couple days went by! I felt like I lost a good friend!
I didn't knit at all I just could not sit and concentrate so I gave up. I did make good use of my time tho~~I managed to get some sewing done instead. I've been doing some large bags and some smaller tote bags that are perfect for that sock project!

Knitting balls galore!! lol~~accented with knitting and sewing kittens! If you'd like to see more bags you can check them out at
just look at bags or totes. If you have any questions email me and ask away!! I'd be happy to make one up for you! We're still trying to raise funds to help with Ivy's surgery so if you're interested in a tote or a bag please let me know.
She had the surgery this morning and they removed her diseased eye and she's doing very well. Other than being very homesick! She's coming home Saturday and we'll have to be very careful that she doesn't bump her face until it heals. Right now she's on very strong pain killers and antibiotics. The vet said after a couple weeks she should be ok. He said that she probably lost the vision in that eye almost immediately even before it started to look really bad. I can't wait to get her home and baby her myself!
So we are still trying to raise funds to help with the surgery--the vet really helped us by cutting some of the cost.
I'm just so happy that she will be pain free and hopefully will be able to live out the rest of her life in comfort with us.
The weather here in western NY is getting nicer every day! Time to get the yard work going. KK started the other day and now he can hardly move!! Forgot about all those aching muscles that show up every spring! He's off tomorrow so I have a feeling I'll be out there helping him!
I'm going to get this posted now --it's dinner time and I'm starving so
Off to eat
