Piglets and Puppies

We have a new litter of pigs. She gave birth to sixteen. Sixteen! First litter. The two smallest did not make it so we are down to fourteen. Aren't they cute?

The heat lamp was a popular gathering place. Half the litter were nursing and half warming.

This a close up so you can see their ears. See how they are sorta pinned up and against their head? They come down in a day or so after birth. They look pink because of the glow of the heat lamp.

Okay now for the puppies.

Sis, I don't think it's a good idea to jump out.

There's a big world to explore. You stay here and you're going to miss out.

And the first place I'm checking out is the food dish! Hey, where are you going, Brother?

All this for your viewing pleasure.

  1. You do have babies right and left, don't you? And sooo cute, too. They are all really cute. I hope all the piglets do well. I don't know enough about them to have an intelligent conversation (grin) but I hope they are a hardy bunch.

    Your grandkiddos are really growing.

    I'm very behind in answering emails, etc. It's been a busy spring.

    I got my sewing room all straight and worked on a top I started about a year ago, but I really don't like the colors. It was a BOM and I used the colors the designer did. I'm not good with choosing colors anyway, but there is way too much work in this top not to like the colors. I'm going to put it up for a while and work on something else. I've got two tops finished that I need to sandwich together and get them finished.

    Later this month we are going to Iowa for a few days. Can't wait to see the munchkins.

    One question, please. What kind of thread do you use to machine piece with?
