Crazy Stupid Texas Weather

We live in West Texas.Our Mesquite trees have leafed out which is a sign of no more freezing.Yesterday it was 93 at 7:00 pm....At 7:00am this morning it was 31 degrees and ice pellets hitting the roof.......can you say 61 degree difference.This can make you crazy when it happens.I have 13 pots of flowers on the front and back porch, that are now all over the kitchen floor...Oh well, this too shall pass.

I made a pincushion to go with my needlebook.I made it large, so it can be hung on the wall or sewing machine.Since Spring is arriving here,I wanted to celebrate with flowers.

What a week .....................

It has been crazy at my house.My dog Sissy starting coughing really bad last Thursday night. Took her to the vet to find out she had bronchitis,yikes! We got cough syrup, antibiotics.She is doing alot better........then last night Zoey started coughing,went to vet, she has it too! Thier pictures are on the right side of blog.I am a worried puppy momma,neither one of them has ever had this stuff.Vet bills are not cheap.......but they are worth every dime.

A rare find, indeed!

While I wandering through an antique store I came across this pincushion. The tag said it was 100 years old. I had never seen one like this before.

Trouble ahead...........

I am in trouble now. I have discovered I have even figured out how to get around a little.Since I love needlework and sewing, it's a dangerous place for me,lol!.............maybe it will help me use up some of my yarn and fabris ect...
