79 Degrees to 21 Degrees in 24 Hours

Have you ever experienced a drop in temperature of 58 degrees in 24 hours? If you have, you might be in Oklahoma! I went from walking around barefoot to being stuck at home because of the ice. sigh... So what to do to raise my spirits? Make some bright, cheerful tulips that remind me of spring!

I feel so sorry to my blog buddies who have tons of probably don't feel sorry for me at all! Thanks to everyone who left their opinion about the border fabric for my Great Granny quilt. It was so interesting to see what you do in that situation.

Lola's collar was getting pretty gross so I made her a few more yesterday. I used to sell them but some people were having them made in China and they became hard to sell for the price I needed. I thought I'd show you some of the ones I made for Lola last week.

 Something bright for spring.

Something for when it snows.

One for the Easter season:

Another for summer:

I've been spoiling Lola because Charlie's final sickness took up so much time. I thought about trying to sell collars again but I don't know if I could make enough money to make it worthwhile. Well, I'm off to try to figure out how to make some money. Etsy sales are way off, even though almost everything is half price and my Farmer's Wife quilt hasn't sold. Well, have a wonderful day!

Love the dog collars. We have those temperature swings quite a bit here in Montana. Never know what the weather will be like.....The tulips are nice and cheery for a winter project.

I love those collars! I wish I could put collars on my cats, but one of my cats got his stuck in his mouth somehow and was bleeding bad, so my husband said no more collars for the cats. They are all indoors anyways.
