Look Grass!

I can't believe how fast the grass came in with a few weeds but after some weed killer added its looking really good!
I was very happy when I was able to finally put my table together that I purchased last fall for 1/2 price!
I already had the chairs and cushions which came from an old neighbor that was moving to Florida. Then I added the cute butterfly pillows!
I found the little table at Home Depot on clearance it matches the table and chairs!

A bottle tree for a little art!
My purple shelf turned out nicely with the green walls. Hubby brought some fun bottles home from work that look great with a few Blackeyed Susan's from the garden!
Well that's a look at my patio and now the weather has turned cold a high of 68 today, so it might not get to much uses this summer but I'm looking forward to spring!

Shawl Done!

I'm so happy I finished my shawl and its on the blocking board drying!
New yarn from Jimmy Bean Wool for a new sweater! Isn't the color great its called Robins egg blue.
With the pumpkin quilt done and at the quilters its time to think of a new one. Over the years I have purchased so much fabric and several kits. This one is a Christmas quilt with stars and angels.

Here is the picture from the book, it looks like it should be a fun one to put together. I'm going to try and have it done before December, wish me luck!
Oh by the way Paisley is doing will and the bugs are almost gone, haven't seen my flag around but getting an alarm system put in today!
Happy Days!

What A Sad Face!

Look at this sad face she was attacked by a dog while hubby was out walking her a few days ago.
She was a very lucky puppy that she only needed two staples in her back. But what I couldn't believe is that the people that owned the dog that attacked her was mad that we thought they should pay the vet bill and they didn't even say that they were sorry that there dog would do such a thing!

And then on top of that I went out yesterday and my flag that hangs on my house was gone, yes someone walked up my mile long driveway and up the stairs to the porch and took it!
And on top of all that we have been invaded by these ugly bugs and when I mean invaded they took over my back yard and my patio. There was millions of them all over my house you couldn't go outside because there was no where to walk. I had to drive Paisley down to my daughters house to go on her grass. She still had the bugs at her house but not as bad. We even made the news and neighbors that have lived out there for over ten years said they had never seen anything like it before. Hubby sprayed three times and they are still there but bigger. But now the birds have come and they are eating what is still alive so I don't think we will need to spray again!
I sure hope things are better at your house!
