Tuesday we had enormous winds, bringing a storm from Canada to our normally-warm area. The cold wasn't what bothered our little Bisou, though; it was the noise from the wind rattling the shutters and banging branches against windows. She's a timid little thing, and she was just quaking in my lap — until I told her that we should probably go get her Thundershirt. That seems to have done the trick, as you can see here. ;) She relaxed so much that she had a little nap in the rocking chair next to my desk!
On a different topic altogether, I have finished a small shawl/scarf from some lovely silk yarn I picked up on a recent trip. This yarn was pre-beaded, and you may be able to see the clear beads in this photo — if you look *very* hard. LOL! It was a very simple pattern, with just yarn overs and double decreases to make the design.
I'm a retired high school French teacher from Arizona, now living in the Las Vegas area. I loved teaching French, but I love retirement even more! I'm a quilter, and most of what you see here will be about quilting.
