Finally home from a very long day in town. We bought Jenni a Snugga Wubba (look up Kong toys if you don't know what that is) as her old Wubba finally died. Sprout has already adopted it as his own. Sometimes I think we should just buy all of his toys in the pet dept...

Our family grew today. We came home with 6 new babies to add to the flock in the hen pen!  The kids are exstatic. They already have them all named : Bizcut, Gravy, Dumb Pling, Alfredo, Garbonzo and  ... Bob. Hopefully Jenni will be better about letting them be and they will all grow to adulthood.We also have a great horned owl in the neighborhood to worry about. And the skunks are out... It's a tough time to be a chick.

I have a felting machine but have never done it by hand. It's really easy but you can't move the fabric too quickly on the machine or you catch the felting needles and break them. The one by hand looks a lot less complicated and quicker.

Well, we thought about naming that last one Soup, but  DD has already got a rooster with that name,  We didn't wanna confuse things.

Dawn:
DD's removal of stent and stone went fantastic!  She is home and resting.

That's good to hear Dawn. Now I hope you got some rest as well.

Thought you might like to see a post card that was sent TO me from another swapper. It's a stunner!

Yes it is. 

quiltylee:
Cards I made today.

Very nice. The second one is my favourite as I'm desperately looking for spring.

Cute names. I love baby chicks. The Tractor Supply Store in town has some that we went to look at over the weekend.

Not much but I did get a felting machine been trying to sell in garage sale for a few years now as I don't use it.  The best descrption I have for them is like painting with fabric.  What i did with mine was have woven fabric on top and then felt under and free hand move fabric it pulls the under fabric to to top. I'd rather be straight sewing .   Never had a lesson on it or maybe I would like it more.

It's not something you use all the time unless you are a fiber artist. I like the variety and there isn't much that can go wrong with the machine so mine collects dust in between use, which is far between. LOL Once I purchase something I usually don't let go of it. That's why I have four sewing machines, felting machine, serger, quilting frame (both machine and hand) etc. you just can't replace those things sometimes and I float between whims. Someday I might decide I really enjoy fiber rts.

Frances:
Thank you for asking that question, i was wondering the same thing, see even you are learning Americanisms.

Ha, ha!  Too funny Frances!  I worked in public schools for 34 years and never heard that term.  I think it is distinctly Sandpoint, Idaho-an.

And the skunks are out.

Thought that it was time to share my "Skunk Odor Recipe", It really works!!!!!!

1 - 32 oz. bottle of peroxide

1/4 cup baking soda

2 tablespoons Dawn dishwashing detergent, original formular

Mix above together, apply to pet and let set 20 - 30 minutes, then rinse, your pet will be odor free!
