We have my daughter's pets until this coming Saturday. Sweetheart and I are waking up super early to take them to the airport, which is about a 2 hr drive from our house...luckily it is on a Saturday morning, we won't have to deal with any rush-hour traffic.
I haven't had to drive in it for awhile, It has been quite a few years. When I was young and foolish, I'd drive anywhere, any time, shoot, I took off to St. Louis from Independence in the middle of a huge snowstorm once, and I made it, too.
Nowadays, nope. Driving through the city is too much for me to do, I even had a friend drive my car downtown to pick Delilah up from a wedding so her parents could stay. His girlfriend came, they sat in the front, D and I sat in the back. I would never have found that place, I promise.
I know a lot of you are thinking I should consult my GPS...and I agree, just haven't been able to get it to work yet. I'll try on the way to the airport this weekend.
Off they will be flying, to Germany. What a fiasco getting all their paperwork processed. I have to say that I am pleased with my dealings with the USDA in Topeka, KS. Catherine, if by chance you come across this, I really respect what you do. Those forms were a conundrum for me...for you to be able to keep that straight x a bazillion of the same thing at the same time...and was pleasant the whole time, too. I appreciate that.
I've been cranking out the Critters with all this new time on my hands. I am enjoying feeling creative again, and Maria, while a bit anxious at times, is still my number one girl. I think once her "partner in peskiness," Rilo, has gone home to her mother, Maria will calm down a bit. Not sure, but seems like Rilo is the first bark I hear, usually.
Back to business/Critters...I received a very cool light box from my Darling Daughter for my birthday, and I have been using it. I realized that I had many more Critters than I thought, and didn't have pics of quite a few of them.
Here's the set up in my sewing room. It's a little makeshift, but it works.
As you can see up at the top of this post, the pics of my Critters, I've added quite a few. You might want to clickety over and take a look at them, especially my Christmas Critters for this year. A couple of retro from last year's Christmas Critters. If you do, let me know in the comments which of my Critters you think would be a good Christmas Critter.
Thanks for stopping by, I'll be back soon.
Play Nice! xxoo
