I had a moment of inspiration where I decided to knit a cat like Miss Pie. I know I am way too critical of my creature knitting. Upon close inspection, you can see she is overstuffed. She needs some serious redistribute of the stuffing variety. I do faces poorly. You know what, she’s for the guest bedroom so why am I fussing?
I cast on a Fezzik before I finished Pie. We’ll see if I get back to that one.
Miss Pie was ummmm….. unimpressed with my copy cat. You know as I look at the photos I’m liking stuffed Pie a bit more.
Thank you all for the wonderful thoughts, karma, and prayers for Mom. I believe she feels them all. My new header for Compassionknit is our apple tree. We have three in various locations around the property. Two are actually in the woods. I love this. I finished with Heartland Animal in Northbrook this week. I have been there for 8 years. Dr. Kristine taught me so very much. Time to move on. New home, new State, new volunteer life. Here is Fireman grooming Prince before the special ed students arrived at the barn yesterday. Prince is 17 and a half hands high. He is a gentle giant. I was working with two students who rode Stanley yesterday. For the warm up portion it is just the handler and horse. I told Stanley all about mom and he listened. He made me feel okay about it all. Animals……they are such a gift to me.
Happy National Volunteer Week. So many of you volunteer in a plethora of different ways and capacities. From charity knit and crochet and quilt work, to Junior League, and church work, to school volunteering ……I love the spirit of my pretend friends!
