I am still around.  I have surgery in two weeks.  My son is coming from California for a week.  Life has been a drag.  Nothing thus no blog.  It is still boring but thought I would post a couple of pictures. 

This is my new clock.  I made it.  I embroidered the roosters and it has acrylic for the top and back.  It is a little quilt.  When you make these things, I was thinking of the quilt.  So thus thought these color combinations would be great.  I did not think of the hands of the clock being black.  So thus the second hand and the minute hand ends do not always show up.  Next time, I will think about it. 

This is Jack the dog.  If you follow my blog you know I have a cat named JAC.  Jack the dog was my son's.  He moved to California.  He had another dog, Fred, and two parrots, Roscoe and Hubert.  His girl friend has a dog.  They are living in a condo and could only have 2 dogs.  So thus he needed to find a home for Jack.  I was fearful that he would not find a good home, so now I have Jack the dog and JAC the cat.  It is interesting around here.                                 

The quilt blocks are a project that I started a while back.  It has 205 blocks in it.  I hope to get the blocks finished before I have surgery.  It probably won't happen.

The weather is hot.........Not as hot as in most parts of the country.  At present it is 90 degrees (cool for Louisiana at noon).  It is the humidity, so it probably feels like a 100 degrees.  I am looking forward to fall although I hate to wish my life away. 

Hope all is well on your end...........
