I was wondering if after all this time
You’d like to see my blog…
I have been neglecting the old blog, there’s all sorts of cobwebs and paintbrushes laying about in here.
Sampson the purple dog is doing well. He is 13 now. He had to have surgery on his leg to remove a tumor but it was benign, thank goodness. It was a ruff operation but it didn’t take him long to get back into his yoga routine.
He’s been pretty lonely since Zeus passed away. He grew up with three cats and Zeus of course was his nonstop companion. He was having fits every time we left him alone and let me tell you terrier fits are very very loud so in March we got him another friend.
This is Tallie, she’s a little girl lab. She loves Sampson so much even though she finds his chipmunk obsession bewildering. He seems to find her entertaining too.
She’s growing quickly and is already bigger than Sampson. She won’t get as big as Zeus was but she’s big enough now that she can reach the countertops and that has been loads of fun.
Arts and crafts wise I was so sure, I’d have all sorts of time with the quarantine to do stuff but nope, Life was like “Hey! You! Busy! Busy!”.
I did make a few animals. This is from a pattern on “All About Ami“. She has such great patterns. Check her site out.
This turtle is a combo of a few different patterns. I really wish I had written down what I did but I think it’ll be easy enough to redo. The hat I made up with scraps.
I’ll be back soon with some experiments and such that I’ve been doing. Until then pass this lemon Bundt cake around and I will talk to you soon.
Recipe from King Arthur Flour’s website. Check out their advice on making Bundt cakes, if you’ve never made one before. I doubled the icing recipe because why the heck not.
