Luck be a lady

Sorry I've been quiet for a while - I had dental issues that became illness issues. But I'm better now. Thank heavens! I hate being sick, don't you?

In spite of being sick, I've been lucky! I'm one of IsDihara's winners for her ChocoLove giveaway! Miss IsDihara is so very generous - and I can't wait to receive my lovely prize. Thank you, IsDihara!

I don't have tatting to show you - and it's not because I haven't been tatting. I have been tatting. I've been tatting and designing patterns for a teaching position at a conference. It's not easy, but I hope my patterns are good. I'll be working on the patterns for a bit longer and then I have to submit them & cross my fingers.

I can show you what Vader's been doing. I know you've missed him.

He's been sleeping like a contortionist. I don't know how he does it. He sleeps like this all the time.

And here's another way I'm lucky. I received not one, but two dozen red roses for Valentine's Day. DH gave me this bunch - aren't they lovely?

Here's hoping your life has had lovely things in it...


  1. So glad you are feeling better. As for your winnings, what can I say? The Random Number Generator had your number. Couldn't have happened to a nicer lady!

  2. Yes, major dental surgery can indeed make you ill - how horrible, I hope you're feeling better now.
    It's obvious that Vader feels utterly secure and contented in his own space! - otherwise he wouldn't be so relaxed in his posture.

  3. first, I thought you had a pet skunk!!!! I am relieved to know that it is just silly Vader!

  4. Spooky used to do that when he was a young 'un. Now that he's an old man kitty, he assumes the "meat loaf" position - curled up in a ball.

    Congrats on winning Isdihara's giveaway!

    So glad, too, that you're feeling better!

  5. Such pretty flowers! Oh, my back would LOVE it if I slept like your cat

  6. ...I was just thinking, maybe this is why The Cat never needs a chiropractor...? They do such a good job of it themselves..!

  7. Your table looks so pretty!

    My daughter's roomie's cat sleeps like that, up against the toilet.
    They think he likes the softness of the bath rug combined with the cool of the porcelain.
