After the Hurricane

It was pretty scary, and the basement flooded, but all in all, compared to some, we fared very well. Here is a short video of the Cohoes Falls, right down the end of my street.

Hold on to your hats folks...

I'm battening down the hatches here. It looks like we are going to be hit by Hurricane Irene. Hmmmm... an Earthquake and a Hurricane in the same week and we almost NEVER experience either of these events in this neck of the woods. It is amazing to me that there are still folks that don't believe that the Earth is changing...

Then and Now

So many years have come and gone, but these two have always been there....

I remember when they were this young...i was a lot younger too...

They still sound so good, don't they?

Wildlife in the Kitchen!

Tucked into a little napkin holder near the kitchen table, are a few of my favorite little bears and bunnies. The knitted bear in the back row center is Cornelius, the first button and thread jointed bear i ever made. He was named after my Grandfather, so he lives here in the kitchen. All other bears and buns were lovingly and expertly made by my friend Jess, from Teddybearswednesday. Jess is a teddy bear expert. The two bears in the back row are handmade by Jess using her own pattern, made of aged mohair and they are fully jointed. The two little bunnies in the front are little sister buns and are crocheted Amigurumi style dolls.... Every time i look at these little critters they make me smile....I hope they bring a smile to you too! Visit Jess' Etsy shop here

The Little Bag Lady

Stella has been finding little spots to make her own around the house. I suspect she picks these spots because they are just her size and are too small for any other critter here to fit in!

Here she is nesting in a bag full of old tee shirts i am planning to cut into strips to be used as fabric yarn for crocheting and weaving

She's my little bag lady....

Computer Crash!

Well, i have no photos and i cannot access any posts i have created to post this week. Our old computer is finally beyond repair and i am typing from our brand new laptop. However, this laptop will not let me access any saved posts to publish them...So, until i work the kinks out, i will be visiting you, but will not be able to post anything new...for now.
I think i'll go and visit some of your blogs now! Maybe i can leave comments???
