I have been such a slacker lately!  I was on vacation from work all last week, just hung around the house, stitched and relaxed.  It was great!  Now I'm back to work and trying to wade through all my paperwork so I may someday find my desk again.  That's the bad part of vacations, they end and you have to return to work and reality and for me that means playing catch up since no one does my job when I'm away.  Oh well, I did manage to finish "Cold Winds Blow" while I was off so I'm happy about that.  He doesn't have his carrot (button) nose yet since the one I had in my stash was too big so I had to order a smaller one.

The kittens are getting so big! They are 4 weeks old now and just as cute as can be!  Here are some snaps of the little darlings.

I don't think they have started to use that litter box yet, which is just filled with shredded paper.  From what I have read, the momma cat will teach them how to use it.  We've also been trying to give them soft kitten food but so far they just don't seem interested in it.  We try to pick them up and give them attention but they cry and momma cat gets so upset that she tries to pull them out of our hands!  It's amazing how protective she is of her little ones.

Well that's about it for now.

Happy stitching!

45.  That's how old I am today, 45.  I'm not sure how that happened because only yesterday I turned 25.  Most days I still feel like I'm only 25 but then there are those days when I feel 85!  Birthday's just aren't as fun as they use to be but when you consider the alternative, I'm just happy to be celebrating another year.  On the up side, my co-workers brought in a birthday cake to help me celebrate and who doesn't love cake?

I managed to get a lot done on Cold Wind Blows this past week and I should have it finished in the next few days.

That's all for now, happy stitching everyone!
