About Me

My photo
Having a large Scottish heritage that migrated from England into Canada to Maine and other states. I am from a family of 9. Six girls and 3 boys. My dad died young when I was about 8 years old. I have 4 children and 3 step children with the great joy of 20 grandchildren. I worked in financial institutions and accounting for many years. Now I sew and make lots of stuffed animals and many other things. I'm a grandmother that has years of sewing in a wide variety of catagories. Photography has become one of my passions over the years. Nature that God has presented us is one of the greatest to photograph. My family and pets hate to see me with a camera in my hands. The bug took hold at Christmas time taking photos of my children in front of the tree. That became a tradition. Then you have family gatherings, vacations, grandchildren and the list could go on.

Puzzle Pictures

This one hangs in our bedroom. The scene is by Sandra Kuck. I have her 8 plate set of Hearts and Flowers. They are for sale as well. Trying to get money to pay for my numerous medical bills from my two hospital stays in later part of 2008.

Puzzles that have been put together and sealed make great wall hangings. I have made several, some tiny other huge.
The bear one I made for my oldest daughter that collects bears.

These kitty ones I have for sale.

I am currently working on a large one, but not doing well. It is mostly shade of white and shades of blue. I think it will take me forever to get it put together. It is of a couple of children angels and will be lovely when finished and framed. My dear husband makes the wood frames around each finished puzzle. I will put photos here of the few I have done.

Testing Territory

Yesterday, I think our two cats were testing territory. They both came to us as older feral kittens over three years ago. Both have very different personalities. One is black and the other is calico. We were warned that calico cats are very independent and like to be the only cat around. She escorts any other cat from the property no matter how big in comparison to her size. I am always taking photos of them. So, when I couldn't find them in their usual spots I went looking for them.
Black Beauty had taken Shadows spot on the stereo cabinet and Shadow was on top of our kitchen cabinets. It is a big leap to both spots and it always amazes my husband when he sees them jump to either spot.
Shadow will take the next leap and go on top of our china closets which is even higher. Thankfully, the cabinets are so heavy she can't tip them over. See her snoozing on top of the cabinet! Actually, she is watching me through tiny slitted eyes.

They both keep their feral ways except they want and expect their food and water. Except on cold days they are out more than in. Neither one likes to be picked up. Shadow tolerates me for about thirty seconds, but not Black Beauty. We have become their staff letting them in and out!
