What's In Your Garden?
Besides vegetables and flowers, there have been a few other critters lurking. The squirrel appears to be checking out something on the ground while Ani checks out the squirrel. Actually the the squirrel is quite dead. Boa was quite proud of his prize catch. I am glad to say that he wasn't the original hunter as rigor mortis had set in, so who knows what had sealed his fate. The cats are always bringing home prezzies just for me! Ani brought home a garden snake last week! Sends the chills up and down my spine as I am not fond of snakes no matter if they are harmless! A snake is a snake!
On the other hand, I don't mind it when a box turtle comes crossing the yard. He was awhile in crossing and I had really wondered if the turtle made it to the shadows or the shadows met the turtle!
While waiting for my sunflowers to grow, I have worked on some indoors! I made this quilt for a donation for The Pet Orphanage. I have the sleeve yet to put on it and have the binding nearly finished. We shall soon be selling raffle tickets! If anyone is interested in helping raise funds for us, it's greatly appreciated! Tickets are $1. each or 6 for $5. We are also selling tickets on an ipad drawing at $5. each. You have a chance to win one of three prizes, an ipad, an ipod or a DVD player!
Yesterday, we spent the evening at the Washboard Festival in Logan, Ohio. It's a fun street fair with good music, food and fun for all.
A rain shower dampened the evening for a short while, but then the sun appeared before it went down.
Kitana went to have a henna tattoo
The design was pretty cool!
As for my studio, I am making some progress finally! I have just finished mudding all of the walls in preparation for painting. I hate all of the dry wall dust and perhaps why I have procrastinated! Well, that and the fact that I had to have help getting some furniture moved! I am hoping the next steps will go a bit faster. It will be a race between me and the weeds growing in the garden. Stay tuned to see who wins!
