March Update....

I'd have blogged sooner, but i was doing laundry with the cat.... Alice is the official laundrycat... she appears from no where when there is soft, still warm clothing about.  Best if you lay on top of the pile and can smoosh is down a bit, and so what if some falls on the floor.....
Of course a good nap on the couch in the blankets is not to be scoffed at.
I seem to feel quite often that I'm being watched... Sitting on the couch and i lean my head back, and look who is looking down on me.... In fact she's sitting right beside my left arm now....watching me type. Odd, because if you were to ask her, she claims to be rathered annoyed with me most of the time.
Couple weekends ago... we got up North.  Had to find some snow for the dogs before all hope for snow was lost.  I think they were pleased. I know I was. 
Ave, Me and Marley
Kippy is no fool, when it's cold you cuddle with your big furry sister on the cushy bed.
Our wonderful neighbor knew we were coming and left homemade donuts for us!
Back at home, last we was sunny and oddly warm... Squeaky is soaking up some March rays.
This is the industrious Hubby and his assistant.  Fran the chicken is quality control inspector for all dirt related projects. She, ummmm, "counts" the worms to verify the soil is aerated properly... and if they aren't doing their job to her satisfaction, well... you can figure that out on your own.
Oh, and I should mention ~ he's working on the ground work for my GREENHOUSE! Yeahhhhh!!!
So you are wondering if anything crafty has been going on? Kinda, in between cleaning out garden beds.  I decided to finish up the last of the very expensive "silver art clay" I got (last year?)... You can see the results below. 
That's an impression of a real four leave clover (from my collection)... I think it would have worked better if it was fresh and green, but dried worked well enough for me.
Pretty cool huh?
This is a tiny little cup.... but I rather like it!

This is Sophie and Rhubarb on this side of this cup.
This is the collection so far.

And while I was making some beads (not pictured) I had to make a bunny... just cuz.
And that's about the size of the news tonight.
Stay tuned, you never know what's next with the Scatter Brain Crafter....
