Curtis Willis and Maizie

Bugs N Slugs

Ah, fresh batteries in the camera! I try to be green by using rechargables but they just don't seem to have enough power to take more than 2 pictures. Anyone else have that problem? Maybe the old HP camera is the problem.

Below are my 2 favorite subjects, Curtis Willis and his little sister Maizie, doing what cats do best. Right now Curtis is bouncing off the walls, but for this snap he was out like a light.

Here is a snap of some of our newer outdoor friends...Monarch butterfly caterpillars, munching on the milkweed plants near the front door. Can you find both of them?

There were 4 in all but they have since morphed into their next phase; so far we've discovered 2 chrysalises.  One apparently liked the receptacle cover for his incubating spot. Another one is attached to a fern frond nearby.  I hope I'll be around to see the butterflies emerge!

ere's what I've been doing instead of housework...plugging away at my Susan Rambo sampler:

For some reason the squirrel strikes me as looking a little bit zombie-like. I was tempted to stitch his eye in red....bwahahaha. I love this sampler!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love your kitties! Love the monarchs! Loooooove your Susan Rambo!!!! :D

  2. Lookin' good! I just picked up the SANQ with the Susan Rambo in it from my lns last weekend. I hope to get it kitted up later this month and *maybe* even start it (Margaret Gibson from SL has also been calling my name).

  3. Love your WIP shot of Susan Rambo - it is just lovely. I did not know those were the monarch caterpillars - Maize is getting so big now. Have a great weekend - mel

  4. Your Susan is coming along very nicely!! I will have to get back with my Susan soon, but right now I got bitten by a sewing bug...
