Hello people. I finished your heart and chose the backing fabric so it looks like the giveaway will start tomorrow. I plan on stitching it as soon as I have a few Dove, and I promise to wash my hands after.
Continuing where I left off months ago of ridding the house of excess, I came across what I think was mine as an infant. I also have a sheer dress with a silky underslip. I don't know who crocheted this either. The yarn is synthetic I'm sure, with a satin thread for sheen through it. Isn't it sweet? The white ribbon should be replaced with ecru.
I have no one who wants it and may take it to the antique store that sells vintage. We were there today and husband found two original June Bug spinners, a Marathon, and two Lazy Ike wooden lures. I came home with a green bucket that is the perfect size for a Christmas tree. They have doilies, hankies, embroidered scarves, Victorian items, but this may not be something they want.
Hard to believe we were once that little, isn't it? The arthritis in my right hand has been so bad the last few days that I can only fit two swollen fingers in the booty opening.
We had a very unpleasant incident the other evening. One of the opossums was going into the cat condos which was OK since they are still inside. When I let them out for a while, they were sitting there staring at the condo and I assumed the opossum was inside. Wasn't expecting what I saw. He was so bloody and weak. His long pointed snout was partially gone from trying to forage through the icy snow for food, what was left was bloody and raw. We couldn't get him to walk so Mark removed him from the box and ended his suffering. We hate to do that, but when a critter is suffering, we just can't let it continue. I'm sure there are others in the same situation after this horrendous winter. So sad.
If all goes well and the heart makes it through the finishing process, I'll be back tomorrow with details. Until then, stay safe, enjoy your day, help Mother Nature's children if you can.
