The great hunter awaits his prey

The question is who is stalking who?  AS you can see Lindsay's pet rats Calvin and Hobbes are completely unafraid of the big bad kitty Nemesis. Nemesis could care less about the rats but LOVE the perch of the cage in the sunshine LOL

Fingerlakes 2012

Friday saw me heading down for the Fabulous Fingerlakes Fiber Show - got to the fairgrounds to torrential rain and wind. Very very bad but it could have been much worse.  Met up with the one and only Maggie of Maggie's Farm and we got the booth set up. Saturday and Sunday we rocked!!! So many compliments and happy festival goers passed through the booth with positive comments and money to spend.  I taught a drop spindle class to 8 victims (I mean willing participants) and we had so much fun.  Best of all I entered some skeins and some knitted items in the competition and I did very very well:):):):) Can you see the smiles from here?

Goodbye Little Shamus

Shamus left us today -quietly as he came. I noticed he was not growing well and was very quiet so took him to the vet.  He tried everything but poor little Shamus was not meant to be of this earth so we sent him over the rainbow bridge to be with Grimjack, Shenaigans and Scamper.
Goodbye litte man with the huge purr.

Thrummed Mittens

These are so much fun to make and Maggies Mother Fiber is perfect for both the yarn and the thrums. The colours just sing and the softness is incredible :)

Back to our regular scheduled life LOL

School starts today as does Air Cadets - my life is now delegated by schedules -work -mine and Daryl's, school and Cadets.
Get out the big whiteboard to write everything down :)
Cats are unaffected as food still comes out at regular intervals. Java is horrified that once again that yellow monster is eating her children. Dutch is most affronted as his blanket snuggling partner has left him!

Mom is currently sorting through fiber and other goodies for upcoming shows -here's a teaser photo of some of the silk caps the dyewizard and his lovely assistant have created :)
