My Aunt Jane Keller Herzig has just completed another cow for the West Hartford 2007 CowParade. This is based on my Grandmother's favourite china pattern and it brings back many happy memories. Though I am not use to seeing it on a cow:) Below is the first cow that she did - Delft Portrait from 2003, another cow that I love. For more information, check out the CowParade site, the cows get auctioned off for charity!

Ready for Canada Day!

Well, better late than never. I finally got this runner finished. The fabric proved to be a bit of a pain to work with, but I am happy with it in the end.

Crochet T-Shirt

Okay here is the crochet t-shirt that I have been working on. I am not really happy with. I was going to give it as a gift but I don't think that it turned out well enough to do that.

A very wet golf day

Golfing in the rain!

Well, today was the first time I have ever spent time on a golf course. Only the second time I have ever been on a golf course. The first time was last week when we had an orientation day. This was to raise funds to build a new Library building. The day was pretty fun and it would have been much better except for the weather. Unfortunately, it rained and there was a thunderstorm and if you don't know, a golf course is not the best place to be during a thunderstorm.

I was working a novelty hole. Selling ballots for the entrants to guess how many balls would land on the green during the day. (If you don't understand this and want to know, umm, I got it explained to me so let me know in the comments and I'll attempt to explain - it involves short grass.) Fortunately, we also had a BBQ at our hole. This meant that we had food and a tent!

We got rained out and brought off the course twice (the whole lightening thing.) The golfers were really friendly and understanding about the weather - considering that they paid quite a bit of money to be playing. Although in the end we had a few laughs, I came home a took a nice hot shower since I was cold and damp!

A Zucchini kind of day.

My friend gave me a huge zucchini out of her garden. I should have taken a photo of it before I started cutting it up, but this is what is still left to be used. I included the pen to give a sense of scale. I made some yummy Zucchini Soup and some Zucchini Bread (to take in and share at work.)

I'm an AUNT!

The best news, my sister had her baby on Friday, a beautiful boy - Ahren! He weighed in at 8lbs 2 oz. Here's the cross stitch I did for him. I got it done in time to leave it with my Mom so she can get it framed. I had a lovely week at a cottage with my friends and will post more on that later.
