Love Bug Rachael crossed the Rainbow Bridge tonite. At best guess she was around 18 years old. This photo had been taken earlier today with her Mom Judy. She will leave a big scottie shaped hole in her heart. Run LBR. Run swiftly little girl.
She paints....this is a little 5" x 4.75" tiny but bold painting. I fell in love with it. The colors are so crisp and bold. She likes scissors. No ... she LOVES scissors and has an afinity for vintage fabrics, notions, trinkets and papers.
I don't know just how much more this old brain can wrap itself around but I just set up a Flickr account. http://flickr.com/photos/scottieacres/ So much stuff to figure out. I think I was born to early for all these technical computer things. Gonna take me awhile to get all the photos uploaded seein' as I'm sewing and uploading to Etsy just about every day. Another dang thing they say I should learn is how to set up an Etsy mini. I'm still learnin' how ta take a picture! It will get done. For now I am going to bid you all a good night and go see how much new snow we have. Then I'm gonna get some shut eye.
This morning before the chickens were even up I was entering listings in my Etsy shop. That and laundry and trying to answer emails. Dogs wanted attention and had to get hubby up and out. I did get the rest of the brag books entered and some place mats. Some with Scotties and some with a Valentine theme. I also listed this gorgeous red and white baby quilt. Now that it's done I keep thinking I should have made it bigger and kept it for myself. It's done with chenille and minky mink and is soooooo soft. You can check out the listing here http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=9122074 And while your there just browse around to see what's on the shelves these days.
Then I was off and running. Store after store after store and still was not able to find what I wanted. Did come home with more fabric though. Never have enough fabric. I need to start thinking about packing the fleece up for the season though. It would make some space in the sewing room. Pretty soon I'll get lost in there and no one will ever find me!
Hubby is home and time to fix supper. That's a good thing because I'm starving. Catch ya all later.
You may not all be interested in Scotties....it may be another breed that captures your heart. That's okay. But...if you are interested in getting a new dog...please think about contacting the breed rescue of your choice and adopting an older dog. It is so rewarding. In the meantime....donate to rescue or your local shelter. Money, time, food. Even a dollar or a can of cat food helps them. There are other Scottie organizations that we donate to. They will also some day find themselves in print here at the Scottie Acres Blog. God Bless all those who work in rescue.
It is snowing and other than shoveling off the deck so the fur kids can do their thing I will be ensconced in the sewing room. Bet ya can't guess what holiday I am working on?
stop by and visit my Etsy shop....It's open 24 hours a day so you can shop at your leisure!
Computers....Can't live with them when they act up but get withdrawal when they need to go into the shop. Thank goodness I have more than one. Oh how I don't want to reformat...No I don't....It won't happen....will it?
Other than that I had a great afternoon with friends. Introduced them to a supper club that opened near here and has all you can eat chicken dinners for $7.95. Soup, salad, potatoes and dressing included.
More snow. It actually snowed off and on all day. Not much more accumulation but boy does it make the forest behind the house look pretty. I could sit here all day and look at the picture God has painted for me. No matter what time of year it is beautiful.
