Spring Weather

The weather has been up and down. Today a possiblility of snow..then more rain. I guess we need it but oh to be so close to some nice spring weather. Just itching to get outside for more than a day here and there. Mind you lol..with the horses I am out all the time. Well you know what I mean..without the layers of clothes..ugly boots/coats.

Last evening when we went to do chores..the entire back wall of the leanto for the Clydes had blown down. Now that is wind!!!! It was not nailed...it was screwed in place. A lot of screws. Will get some pictures today. So now that is going to be a big job trying to either move it out of the field or repair it right there. Some phone calls today to figure that all out. We sure will not be doing it ourselves.

Yesterday with the wind so bad and the rain..it was a day for some sewing. Our oldest granddaughter had taken a bad fall with some track pants that were her favorite. A little embroidery on the knee and it is fixed..cute. I know she will be thrilled to have them back. The back of the pants have big bear paws in white..the reason for the bear..lol
I have not used this machine a lot since I got it for Christmas 2 years ago.
With my eyes acting up I was just not in the mood. Well I am slowly getting used to it. Maybe we can bond after all..lol. I had gotten so used to my Designer 1 that with the vision issues I was just not putting the time in to learn some of the different features...I think we are going to be ok..lol.






A job I kept putting off is embroiderying hubbys name on uniform shirts..and it is also done. Slowly the list is getting smaller of those little projects.


Later on I want to tell you about "Fat Cat" one of our barn cats. A fellow blogger meantioned about a rescue cat..and I want to tell you about our rescue. It is a story thank heavens with a happy ending. Later today or tomorrow.

Enjoy the day wet or day..lol.
