Here's a scrap one I made that way. It wasn't very handsome, but it had a certain crazy quilt effect:

I like it! It has a personality all its own. That would make a perfect snuggle blanket to pull out, say in a family room when you have your bunny slippers and pj's on put a classic movie on and get all snuggled up on the couch...

I am not a vet but I guess he knows I love animals and work with them at the feed store. I felt really bad because the phone was breaking up last night and I suggested that he googles the symptoms online and I will call him in the morning. I wish I could have helped him last night but we live so far away and I wasn't sure what to do. I guess he just wanted to talk to someone so that was okay with me! I got a hold of him this morning and the puppy seems to be doing better. He apologized for waking me up but I understood he was upset. Anyway, not much sleep last night but things happen!

Right now I am busy with my granddaughter so after she leaves I am going to get some rest and get better!

He is building an in-ground fire pit for retiring US flags in the appropriate manner. My new iPad and phone are "on-the-road" usable. They are not easy to type on, but I will give it a shot!

Thank you! It went to a charity several years ago. I wonder who's cuddling with it now.

Cool. I stripped the floors in the basement of my Church and redid them. Then I repainted the whole basement.


You can do it!!! It just takes some time to get use to it.

The thing about Eagle Scout projects is they are always (at least all I have seen) so beneficial for others. Of course, that is the point!

I have gone twice to be checked for pneumonia, and my doctor has said my lungs are clear. I just can't shake whatever is going on here.
