It's A Challenge

I participated in a on line rug challenge. We were given the 
designs and we were to put them into a rug design anyway we chose.
We could use all of them or what ever we chose. I chose to do a rug in honor of a sweet little kitten that jumped into my husband's truck and adopted us. She was with us for 20 years. She drove my mother crazy hunting birds and squirrels and digging in my garden. But we loved her so much,she left her little paw prints on our heart.

So big weekend planned we had Miss B for an over night in Maine.
So off we went to the children's Museum we were there for hours she attended all of their programs. And really didn't want to leave.

I think Pepe enjoyed it just as much as she did.

We went to Portland Maine just a lovely city right on the ocean.
She got to swim in the hotel pool and out to lunch and dinner.
I am so very sad to say she became sick over night so the ride home was not very pleasant for her but she did it and a call from her tonight and she is feeling better. Gramie and pepe went home and took a nap.

We have been having spring like temps. No complaints from me I am loving it! But oh those skiers and snowmobilers are not happy.
I made some blueberry scones from the blueberries we picked while kayaking a small pond in the area this summer. they tasted like summer.
Have a wonderful week I just finished watching Downton Abbey on line ohhhhh my.

I have never really explored the portland area so might do a camping trip in that area.
Bill has been wanting to sail so maybe we can find a place with sailboat rentals and explore the islands, have paddled off of the freeport area, great islands to paddle around and stop at. Your rug came out beautifully and a wonderful story behind it.

Fun! I bet it's fun to relive childhood with a grandchild. Wasn't Downton wild??

Oh Cathy, those scones are making me so hungry. I've been fasting today in support of a blogger friend of The blog Nana DianaTakes a Break. Her husband John is undergoing cancer treatments for throat cancer.
I'll have to bake some tomorrow.I have some frozen blueberries in my freezer.

You challenge rug looks great and I remember Sadie your old beloved cat. It a nice way to honour her memory.
So sorry Miss B. got sick. I'm glad she's feeling better today.
I still haven't watch Downton Abbey yet. I've been busy printing my blog and I'm making progress but time consuming.
Portland sound like a nice place to visit in the summer.
Stay safe and happy.

Glad you had a fun weekend with Miss B but sorry she got sick. Hope you both don't catch it! Our temps have been nice too..60de today but cold tomorrow. Downton was a bit shocking wasn't it? I sure will miss that show when it ends. Have a good week!
