Let me show you my postcard for today:
It was sent to me from Germany by Bettina. I thought it was rather appropriate for all you sewing ladies among you. (I was going to write 'sewers', but soon realized it could be misinterpreted....lol).
This is the stamp:
A bend in the river Mosel.
This also made me smile. At last the almond trees are starting to blossom. (later than usual this year). This photo was taken on Tuesday. Spring is on its way!
Those of you who know me on Facebook will know that our cat Precious has been very ill with a type of foodpoisening. We took him to the vet who kept him in for two nights. Wednesday evening we went to pick him up and took him home again (after paying a hefty bill). Here he is, looking a bit sorry for himself. His paws have been shaved to accomodate the drips and blood tests. He is now recuperating, lying by the fireplace like Lord Muck!
When I was in Holland last month, my cousin gave me a traditional Norwegian cardigan. It had belonged to my late uncle (who was a very slender man) who bought it on holiday in Norway but then never worn it. We calculated this item must be at least 40 years old.
I am so please with it because here in Spain I can wear it as a jacket as it seldom rains. Lynn Holland would be proud of me.
Now I should probably knit a matching cat cardi....
Here are a few cat funnies:
I will leave you with a sunset a few days ago, photographed from our house:
That's it for this Friday. I hope to see you all at Annie's A Stitch in Time and at Virginia' Rocking Your Week Friday.
