One of the great things about blogging is all the kindred spirits who seem to find each other! I have made a lot of friends through my blog and one of the best is Texan. She has a great blog where she talks about her farm,lots of goaties , some ducks and chickens and sewing and learning new things!It is all about her life as a farm girl! We entered a contest at the Apron Goddess to win an apron.Now, I can sit down at the sewing machine and run material through it but the end result is, well....let's just say it is never what I had hoped for.Surely not what the pattern maker had in mind either!
When I had commented that I needed and apron because the ones I had made were...sub standard she entered in the contest and ask if she won could I have the apron ! She sews wonderfully and makes her own! Now,I ask you,how sweet is that!?!
We didn't win.So my friend,Texan,sent me a comment that she is going to make me an apron! It came in the mail Saturday but with all the drama and sadness around here I haven't been able to give it a proper post. She even put the name of my farm on it.
She said she gave it big pockets for Clyde's treats,he has a problem you know! Also,cute rooster material which I love! I have chickens all over my kitchen that if I ever get painted I will show picts of!
So a great big ole' THANK YOU to my friend Texan ! I absolutely love it! Oh, and so will Clyde!
The Murry von Furry Pants update.
I had flash backs all night to when The Boy was a baby! Hungry cries every couple of hours! The Boy and Murry slept in my room last night,it is the warmest room and we had 20* last night. I have a futon couch in my room so he slept on that.I also discovered The Boy has that man gene which enables him with the ability to sleep through a baby crying no matter how loud it is! I had to wake him but he faithfully got up ever 2 hours to feed little Murry! I will do it tonight so he can have a rest.
Murry is already one spoiled goatie! This is him, little head on a pillow,covered in his blankey, hovered over by The Boy!The picture is blurry because The Boy wouldn't stop making faces and I couldn't stop laughing!
I have to keep reminding The boy that if he never puts Murry down his legs can't grow strong! The Boys was also worried Murry was cold so I made him a coat out of an old sock,no sewing involved,just cutting! I can do cutting!
This satisfied The Boy who,by the way, is trying to convince me to carry Murry in my purse when we have to leave the farm! Well...nothing is beyond reason around this funny farm!
