Cat mat mini quilt

My oldest cat, Maya, will do anything for warmth. Her second name is Seat Thief - the moment you stand up, or even dare to lean a little off your chair reaching for something, she just appears there instantaneously. She magically transports to your lap without you...

mini felt cacti

mini felt cacti

I made a little potted garden of mini felt cacti! I set out to make them for Boy's office, but then people caught wind and wanted some;) You might remember from last week's WIP post that I was using Delilah Iris's Cactus Plush pattern. I added bead melon's to some of...

WIP-TAST-ic Wednesday 7

First, let me be straight with ya'll. I have no TAST to show! My sweeter-than-pie kitty Maya is finally getting her nose-breathing woes checked out at the Purdue vet hospital far away from here so we spent the day down there with her. They have her until possibly...

cat + toilet paper

cat + toilet paper

I have two cats. Sasha is the kitten of the family, and her spunky personality often gets her into trouble. Maya, three years older, is like a little old lady cat, prim and proper, and she rarely does anything wrong. The one thing she does (and Sasha actually...

Howdy! Gosh, been a while, hasn't it? My semester is wrapping up and I am buzzing with excitement. I haven't gotten to have casual fun since last April. That is over twelve months ago! I jumped into an archaeological project over the summer, then hopped right into a...

I whipped up a pillow today for my mother-in-law. When she moved to Indy, she gave me a lot of her sewing room items, which included things her mother had worked on. Now that Gayle is moving into her own place back here to be around all us kids, I thought it would be...

Our friends recently got married, and Boy was one of the groomsmen. We had bought them stuff for their shower but I still wanted to give them something handmade. Their wedding colors were peacocks and browns, but I also get the feeling they like things like Mardi Gras...

dining room remodel

Our kitchen/dining room remodel was such a huge project, but it has come along quite nicely. I realized I never posted what things look like now, so here you go. First, a quick review of its history starting with how it looked just before we moved in: And then of...

crazy quilt displayed

crazy quilt displayed

My family (mostly my aunt, but also my mom and grammas) made me a crazy quilt when I graduated highschool. It is one of my most treasured possessions. When I lived at my condo, it was displayed prominently above my couch in the living room. This house, however, does...

Midna the Stray

Midna the Stray

Our precious stray kitty, Midna, went to the vet yesterday. It didn't sound good. Her belly is bloated and her intestines are ropey. She has broken hair and alopecia over her back end and a few other spots, leading the doctor to believe she has flea dermatitis, but...

On Boy's birthday last night, the cutest little kitten strayed onto his brother's patio and mewed her way into our hearts. She was starved and skinny, as well as a bit grungy looking, but we gave her some hotdog bits and some fresh water which really warmed her up to...

This post isnt that crafty but my week has had some highlights so I thought I would share. We've been pounded with severe thunderstorms for what seems like weeks now. Living in a swamp means the mosquitos are out of control. Eugh. Instead of picking up sticks, ive...

My cats are Javanese (Ill make a shout out to the Loblolly Cattery where I got them from:). That is to say they are a blend of Siamese and Balinese, so they look like Siamese but have different colorings, and long fur on their tails. And like their counterparts,...

Here are some sneak peeks of current projects. All of these will be bags and the fabric was (mostly) chosen by the future bag owners. The patterns are cut out, but I need to start sewing the pieces together. I had a bit of a crafting lull for a while when the last bag...

I got my new memory card reader, yay! So as promised, here you go: I took Sasha out in the snow. The coldness didnt bother her, but the depth of the snow did, so she stayed near the house. Maya checked out Tofers new bookcases. The evil damage caused by an even more...

mouse catchers

I was working on a crafty project (pictures in future, i swear! so much to catch up on!) and heard some clash-clang-rattle-rattle coming from the kitchen. Never a good thing - this typically means the kitties are on the counters, where they are not allowed to be. As i...

Sasha the adventurer

So Saturday, we took the girls to our neighbors house (aka the in-laws) since they have a fenced in yard. Maya and Sasha have never been outside, so we wanted to see what they did. I had bought them little harness/leashes for taking them out on my condo balcony - just...

Now that I have finally been able to catch up on emails, I hope to start sorting through our France photos. I have been quite the busy bee at my new house also - the craft room is almost complete. I need one more organization unit and then everything will have a...
