Pincushions and Needle Books, Oh, My!

My pincushion and needle book collection for your viewing pleasure! Enjoy! I bought most of them on Etsy (12)! I made the others (9).

My Addiction

I know I have a problem. I am sure there are support groups for this kind of thing. But who cares! I love my needle book and pincushion collection! I can’t get enough of them. Here are a few of my prized purchases (all from Etsy, of course!). I have several new ones too! What a talented group of artisans!

Here are a few items that I made. For more, please check out my shop on Etsy!

Best Day EVER!

I can’t believe how much we did yesterday! Before we did all our shopping, we went to a local pond and I took pictures of flowers, ducks, and geese. I was taking a picture of a mother duck swimming by and much to my delight she came right out of the water with her three babies in tow. So cute! Sadly, the beautiful white swans were not around. We went to several garage sales. We drove all over! We went to Costco (food samples galore), a craft store (bought an HD light), a pet food store (bought dog and cat food), a book store (a new cross-stitch book), the LCBO (the liquor store), the Dollar Store, a grocery store, the Pandora store (a quick exchange), and a kitchen store (bar towels). We even squeezed in a quick lunch (club sandwich, home fries, veggies with dip, and fresh coffee). All these activities took about 7 hours!

I have a wedding shower to go to today. That should be fun. I am bringing homemade meatballs. It’s also my birthday weekend! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Neil's Blog #1

Neil, the Shetland Sheepdog, here! My mother is busy so I am taking this opportunity to tell you about my very first soccer game. My mother’s niece was playing so I went along to lend my support. Uh, they won 2–0. I was obviously the good luck mascot. I was very well behaved while I was there. I was a bit nervous, of course, and “shook” accordingly. I don’t like loud noises and the parents were quite rowdy! The soccer field was Astroturf. My mother kept telling me not to pee on it. What was that all about? Like I would! After the game a lady came over to say hello to me. She told me that I was pretty. I may just have to go to more games in the future. It’s great for a guy’s ego.
Until next time!

Yours truly,

Tuesday's Flowers
