    You have a very nicely behaved stash. Plays well together. Lovely little bag.

      Alice – yes, the stash does go well together – simply because I am addicted to certain dyes but it definitely isn’t so well behaved – it is spilling out of boxes, drawers and cupboards and just keeps growing and growing.

    A productive end for one year and start for the next! I have a cat that goes for walks, too. 😉

      Velma – Gilbert is granddaughter Carrie’s constant companion, they have grown up together.
      Kerry – the cat is safe from neighborhood bullies as long as she is with the dog.
