Fiber Arts Guild

Monday, my friend Eve and I attended the Fiber Arts Guild meeting. It was a nice way to be able to spend some time together and I got to see friends I had not seen for many months. The project was Origami and we made a covered box, a dove and a heart.

Ezra & Raven

Here are Ezra and Raven. They are Shih Tzus and will each be five next month. They are fun but I sure miss my Basset Hound. We chose Raven as a companion for me and Silas (our aging Basset) Ezra came into our family as a placement from the breeder. He is good company for Raven so we now have two little dogs. I have had cats larger, Ezzie is about 12lbs and Raven 14lbs.

Worth the trip

Yesterday DH and I made a trip to Binghamton to do a bit of shopping. Mostly to get panels for my new design wall. One the way down on the Interstate we follow the Chenango river for a stretch , and somehow David spots it. There on the opposite bank, well camouflaged among the snow and trees, was a Bald Eagle eating a large fish. What a wonderful sight. I wish I had had the camera but it would have been really difficult to pull over in time to have gotten a shot.

A New Year

Wow, another year has gone. Maybe not a bad thing. Lot's of possibilities for the new year. I'll consider 2009 a clean slate. I have joined a diet/weight loss group with my on line quilting friends. I am hoping that having to check in weekly will help me keep on track and meet my goals.
The above picture is of my ShihTzu, her name is Raven and she is almost 5 yrs old. She is my little buddy and she has a companion named Ezra. I'll see if I can get a picture of him too.
