Has it really been two weeks since I've posted? I realized mid-week that I had completely forgotten to blog last week. Nothing real exciting going on, just life and its normal business. There has been knitting, but no pictures – just visualize the Hidcote Shawl a few rows longer. The rows are getting very, very long, so I can only manage a few in a sitting.
I've also found myself quilting more. I seem to do this on a regular basis. I have several interests, and when one catches my fancy, I seem to really immerse myself in it, almost to the exclusion of everything else. I'll do that for several weeks and then one of my other interests will come to the forefront. I don't know that I consider it exactly a problem, but I do envy those who have single interests – they probably get a lot more done. Of course, I also have lots of help:
Can you see Kirby squished in there on my right side? That is his favorite place in the whole world and he is never happier than when he is wedged in there.
Maggie, of course, is never happier than when she is out on a walk. We've been getting out more lately because there have been glimmers of spring (despite a little scare – a two hour snowstorm last week!). Behold – Dog with Crocuses:
Spring also means that she is starting to blow her coat. Corgis don't shed too badly most of the year, but at least once a year they blow their soft downy undercoat. It takes constant brushing to make sure you don't have clumps all over the floor. Maggie really doesn't seem to mind too much:
You can see the pile of down over to the left of the picture.
And that, folks, is just about it on this end. See you next week!

I know that face, they sure love to be brushed when they are blowing coat. I think it really itches! Once a year? Who told you that *lolol*
Those are two contented dogs. Maggie looks like she is in doggie heaven!
Maggie looks so relaxed! I love that picture. And isn’t it amazing the positions or pets will get into just to be close to us? So cute. Glad you are all well and Spring is arriving.
Great pictures. Sunny does the same thing as Kirby. There’s one chair, very similar to the one you’re sitting in, where everytime I sit down Sunny has to squeeze in by my side. I love it.
Tuesday Pappy got his coat cut short. It’s still so thick it will keep him warm, but we’re all happier he’s not a walking puffball.
I just love those doggie photos. You need a Furminator. It does an amazing job on Corgi fur. You can get them, or a knock-off, at Petsmart.
I love seeing you doing your hand quilting 🙂
and that little pup squished in there is adorable!
Planning my garden has derailed my knitting for the last week. There’s just not enough time for everything.
There is a book on knitting with dog hair, which I thought was bizarre until looking at the down pile in your photo.
No spring here yet 😦
