Somewhere in my DNA is Scottish blood, but I wouldn't claim to be a real Scottsperson. It is too far back. Nor am I thrifty by nature. Even so, I hate waste. It takes a lot of effort, but I like using up my scraps. I have a stash of strips and love to make the scrappy strip block (see here for previous post).
The other day, after our trip to the vet( check up and shots only), I had a few minutes to sew. Wrigley thought it was a fine idea, too. This was always Wilson's spot on the couch but he never put his head over the back to check out what I was doing. He always seemed content to just be where ever it was that I was. Wrigley is more demonstrative and independent. He will bound across the yard when I call, but lie contentedly in the sun if he wants to be in the yard. I miss Wilson, deeply. Wrigley and Frannie have my heart, too. Lucky me to have them.
