I had also enrolled in classes in genetics and molecular biology, that took a lot of my time but it was really interesting!
In February, Louie came to a show in Halifax, he was hum.. a little non plussed about all the fuss 🙂
Towards the end of February, Lia did not feel well and we soon discover that a puppy had died and Lia miscarried her litter. Poor Lia was devastated and so were we, the little hydrant clip on her bandage made us smile, but Lia took a long time to get over her loss.
Our friend Laurinda was going through treatment for Lymphoma all through last year and a group of her friends managed to do a few silent auctions at dog shows and also an online auction to help her. I donated this fun quilt to be auctioned off..
In March we Celebrated St Patrick’s day and our little Irish Girl’s Birthday.Happy Birthday Ciara !
In April Louie obtained his Elite Championship and a third place group placement at the European style show in Truro !
The Backyard was brimming with action the Eagles had nested in a pine nearby and we were over run with pheasants!
It was fun to watch the little eaglet take his first flight 😉
And along with them, the deers now travelled right in front of the house!
See the original and the painting ! Just fabulous 😉
The Moulin Rouge, where you can take in a show and dinner, just like in the old days. We stayed in Montmartre, which is a little village onto itself within Paris.
You can actually find a replica of this gargoyle in my curio… the original sits a top of the Notre Dame Cathedrale.
We enjoyed summer and fires in our schnauzer fire pit! And then it was time to harvest and eat the tomatoes!
We took a little vacation in the highlands where I got to really put my new knees to the test, or may be the scenery was such that I did not pay attention ?
We need to do more of this 😉
I decided to do a different type of quilt for a round robin project, where several people will contribute to my quilt. This is my backyard with the pond, the eagle and the schnauzers. I had fun trying many different techniques including free hand embroidering Louie !
