Home Again

For good this time, I'm afraid. No more lazy summer days at the lake for me.
When I go to up north for the summer, I take all the wool I will need for the rug on which I am currently working. Because this rug is so eclectic and I wasn't sure exactly what wool I was going to need, I ended up taking a good portion of my wool cabinet with me. Believe me, Rog was thrilled when he realized that the largest and heaviest of my suitcases was full of wool!
Coming home means I have to reverse this process and put everything back in the cabinet. Of course, I had helpers. Jasperkitty thought that my wool might have lost that fine sheen of cat hair while it was away over the summer, so he had jump into the suitcase and remedy that right away.....

Then when everything was back in its place, he was so worn out from all that work that he needed a nap. And there is no better place for a nap than in the wool cupboard!

Moses thought that all this fuss over wool was just craziness, and instead decided to catch his nap in the warmth of the afternoon sun.

The finished project........
Whew......I'm tired.....I think I'll go take a nap!


  1. I always hated moving back from the cottage too. It seems like all summer I would slowly bring odds and ends out with me and then foolishly try to lug it all back home at once. But I used to hang in a little longer than you - usually moving back to town at the end of September. So sad to close it up for the season.

  2. Debra, I know what you mean. I always take along too much on my trips to and from the Mainland. But you never know?!

    Enjoyed your pictures of your furbabies too!
