this and that


I got my files done at work this past week so I get to keep my regular Friday off. WOO HOOO, and happy dance!
So, today I am doing things around the house - quietly as my husband is sleeping upstairs, he is on night shift for the next 6 days- er, nights. Anyway, it's a gorgeous fall day here, cool though, can you tell by my cat's nap position? We call this her Garfield pose. How DOES she breathe??? She is keeping me company while I cut out patterns. I got a pair of cargo pants cut out for my honey, and next I'm cutting out sleep pants for me. Did you read that Flori??? I'm REALLY doing them this time!


This is a mousepad I covered to go in the office at one of the clinics where I work. The full time records person there and I will be sharing an office and we get to decorate it however we want! she wants to do greens, and yellow to make it cheery and garden like, and who am I to argue? I'd let her pick whatever she wanted anyway since she is there 5 days a week and I'm only there one. The mouse in the picture is not my real one, it's an extra that we had here at home and the cats actually killed it one night! I came down in the morning and it was on the floor missing it's little battery door! One cat looked proud, and the other looked guilty.


A few weeks ago we moved two of our daughters back to their colleges. In Eau Claire there is an art movement called Hands Across Eau Claire, and there are these hands around town painted in all different ways. This one is on campus, and from the next picture of me you can see how big they are! We hope to find the rest of them and get pictures of them too! When I see these pictures I keep thinking of that saying from a few years ago "talk to the hand". Except for me it's, Sit in the hand~

The cat is too funny - ours keeps getting up on the roof and can't get down - strange animals!

Hope you enjoyed your day off

I've seen trolls, cows, moose, rabbits and now hands painted for different areas.. I think they're terrific pieces of art. Those cats never cease to surprise us. Good luck with your sewing and enjoy the day off.

I love those hands... hands are so emotional and expressive in the deaf world too with bits of signlanguage but if you look at people in communicating they use their hands alot anyway... I love how the hands are painted and what a good idea to take a rest in one lol. You look like you are having great fun there keep on rocking quilting and having more...... funxx
