SOME PICTURES AND SOME PROGRESS.

I'm sitting here with a grand cold! But the good news is that it's not the swine flu. Knock on wood!
It's time for the September accounting for the Totally Useless SAL and here it is,along with my progress on Chaplain's Garden. That one piece is really filling up the old jar. It should be finished by the weekend. And then on to it's mate........
And the Bowl of Balls is growing......

Here's an update on my little friend, Giselle. She is so sweet. She spends her mornings on my front porch or somewhere in my house and then goes to her own house for the night. She's really filled a void since I lost Rose. Not the same, but still gives me something warm and furry to pet.

And the picture on the header is "Wepham Cottage" by Marty Bell. I finished it several years ago and is really one of the prettiest pieces she did. There's a  plate to match it and it's on my list of to do's.

My goodness the C.Garden is growing so fast, and it is the perfect setting for your Totally Useless Bowl. I love the display. I'm pretty sure the beautiful kitty is there to fill the void for you. Animals are great that way, they seem to know what we need better than we do ourselves.

How wonderful that Giselle visits with you during the day and keeps you company. Cats are such awesome creatures. Her nighttime folks probably wonder about her daytime adventures. If only Giselle could talk! BTW, I love your presentation of glass balls for your TUSAL. Very beautiful and clever!

Pretty kitty. She looks a little like our late Frosty, but she is orange where he was black. A white cat with a black tail - someone said I should have called him Dipstick!
