The fence

David decided to hide some of the "stuff" outside his shop and built this fence out of dead wood on our property. He is an artist but doesn't like the label but I feel like this is a true work of art. I love it. We had a very windy few days after this was built and it held up well. The last picture is taken from inside looking towards our driveway. What a nice view...~sigh.


David has started keeping pigeons. He has wanted to do this most of his life and now is learning their habits. He enjoys them very much and has made this large "sun room" for them. The triangle shaped house is called a chalet and then there is a tall one in the main room he calls the pigeon condo! He lets them out most days and they eventually come back in but they like to hang out on the barn roof most of the day. He plans to raise some of them for meat. Some of them are homers and one day will fly out and come back as is their instinct.

Kitties in a box

This box is a very special cat bed. It has paper in the bottom that was originally meant for the recycle bin. Then it has an old wool rug that Tigger had embedded with cat hair so heavily I knew I just had to give it to him rather than spend the rest of my life trying to get the hair out. Tabby has decided it is a pretty comfy bed too. Now they have decided to share. I almost thought the first picture looked like a two-headed cat!! Tigger was napping away but Tabby knew I was around so she had to keep an eye out...I might have wanted to touch her...OMG!!
We have had her now for 12 months almost and she still won't let us pet her but she likes to have us around...that is a good thing. We like her and her peculiarities just the same.

Latest weaving project

This is a warp stripe weaving for my parents. It is chair back covers and arm rest covers for their new recliners in their cabin. They asked me to do this in the early part of summer and I am not done yet. I had a busy summer (which is no excuse) but am steadily working on it. I hope to get them done before they leave for the winter at the end of this month! The colors are turquoise, gold, cactus green and rust. The weft is a camel color which matches the recliners.
