Snakes, Panthers and ....

I hope everyone had a Happy Mother's Day, my hubby fixed Creole tonight and it was yummy.

Our library cat "LC" was in a cat fight and he got bit, and of course it got infected, so my son helped me take him to the vet and while we were there, my friend Eileen who works there, came and got David.  When I came out David was petting a Florida panther.  He was beautiful.  They rescue wild animals.  LC is fine, he just had to go on oral antibiotics for a few days.

 My finished projects for the week.
 Made lots of little dolls, they are my favorite to make.
 I purchased this sign from Dee at Ice House Crafts, it will be perfect for my display.
 This was a sign she made for me when we were in a swap, my very favorite!!!

You can definitely tell summer is here, we see snake tracks everywhere when we walk, we have sandy roads and you can see their tracks and coming home the other evening, there was a very large snake crossing the road and of course, son has to stop the car and get out to look at it, I HATE snakes.  And then there are the love bugs, if you live in Florida, you know what they are, if not, they are black flying bugs that mate and stick together, they are usually hundreds or thousands of them, and if they stay on your car very long, it eats thru the paint, stains your clothes, the joys of living in the south!

I have also started  a Crafty Stitchers facebook page, if you get a chance, please stop by and LIKE ME, thank

Hope everyone has a great week!


  1. Oh I love the Raggedies sign! Just perfect for your dolls Hope you had a wonderful Mother's day.


  2. Happiest of Mother's Days to you Cyndy!! Ohhhhh....that is one ADORABLE kitteh kat!!! :o))) You can keep the snakes though...ICK! It finally warmed up enough the past few days to venture out and I had one eye open as I weeded our patio waiting for the "first sighting..." I repeat, ICK!!! Wonderful little dollies!! Hope your day was filled with joys and blessings....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  3. Oh how cool for your son...I'm jealous! You know I love all your raggedies and I love your new sign. I'm glad someone got something done since I spent the weekend at the river and didn't even work on the hand stitching I brought. However, I did get to ride and operate my son's new plaything...a jet ski. Had a blast and my husband couldn't believe I got on it so now he thinks he might like to get some!
