Hope everyone had a great weekend!  I had a very quiet one while babysitting my Granddog Lucky again.

I smell that mean cat somewhere.  I can feel her looking at me.

I'll hide here and just wait....................hahahaha.  She has to get off that couch sometimes.

Hexie Weekend

No fabric goodies from me.  Two granddaughters, a cousin, and "I" were celebrating Birthdays over the USA this week.

Gracie turned 15, Isla 16......the young ones.  I turned 68 and my Sandra Ann turned 74.  Sandra and I were both born on the 13th 6 years apart.  Grace on the 10 and Isla on the 11th.

Not sure where the years have gone.  I was 16 when I met Mick and we were both a mess.  Somehow we made it through the years alive and find ourselves doing pretty good now.  It definitely been a wild ride.  This one is for you Big Mick.



Don't forget Hexie Weekend with Angie.  You can link up below.
