Whew wee, is it raining outside. The wind is blowing and rain slapping the windows so hard it causes the dog to bark. Of course, Muffin is a Corgi so I think she can hear the softest of sounds and decides to sound an alert just about all of the time. I certainly never have to worry about anyone breaking into this house, because they are never going to get past Muffin.
We were gone to a fur sale this weekend. Animal activists, I apologize, but my husband is a trapper (just like in the pioneer days) and we go to these fur sales at least three times a season. It is the way he makes our income during the winter months.
If you have never been to one they are very interesting to attend and trappers are certainly a funny bunch.
I did see something at this one I didn't like though, even though it was legal and all that but it broke my heart also. Some guy had the pelt of a beautiful white wolf there. It was absolutely the most gorgeous thing I have ever seen but it broke my heart to think that this beautiful animal had been killed for his beautiful fur.
I went over and touched the pelt and said a prayer to the wolf's spirit, telling him I was sorry he had been killed. I know some think that is probably crazy and all, but I believe God put animals here for a reason. I don't think he approves of senseless killing but if you want to weight the pros and cons of trapping, I will just let you have my husband's email address because he can give you a list a mile long why it is in the best interest of the animals to keep the populations under control.
Well, that certainly got off on a track I didn't mean to go down.
Anyway, I finally got my little doll done and as soon as I get her face painted on I will try to post her on here. I don't know if I will put her in my Etsy shop or not since I am trying to get ready for a craft show in Erin, Tenn. on March 15. I am so slow at creating things I really have to bust my buns to get things started and completed for shows.
So, I guess I will spend the rest of this afternoon cutting out another doll. I am making this one a crochet granny square afghan to carry with her.
Have a good one people, and remember how far a kind word or a smile can help someone else.
