I fell instantly in love with this cat
when I saw him on Pinterest
his name is Shiro
what is not to love
the smallest things...
can make your heart sing...

Karen Kahle's Vintage Colors
Saturday I dyed 6 yards of wool using the
Vintage Colors dye booklet
both photos are of the same wool
in person the colors
are somewhere in between my photos
closer to Karen's swatches...
I might not feel like hooking
but the dyeing kept me busy all day
the colors are a success
pretty much all I could ask for

so very true for me
"fake it until you make it doesn't work with chronic depression"
some people just don't get it...
that's why I post to help educate others
on the bright side
I paid off my student loans today

this current bout of depression
has gone on way too long
as if any amount of time was okay...
it's not because of anything
it just is
the feeling of no feeling
I'm getting help
there are moments of light
I can fake my way through the day at work
most of the time
just checking in

Cheri Payne Baskets
I love quilts with baskets
Cheri's are among my favorites
these are photos of designs
Mom did not like baskets on quilts
or I should say in the past few years she didn't
so I skipped stitching them
now that she's in Heaven
I'm hoping she'll be okay with it...
insert laughing here
she stitched many a quilt with baskets
lots of Jan Patek/Linda Brannock designs
