GrandKitty Fun!

 Beaker prefers laundry to pillows it seems! He doesn't seem to have a preference for dirty or clean.

Sam is a big fan of ice cream, and, yes, he's a plain vanilla man!

I'm going to add another sneak peek soon! A new Bunny for the Etsy shop this weekend. He's gray and very fluffy - or maybe she is, haven't decided yet. Do check back!!

Panda Bunny now on Etsy!

Panda Bunny is now listed in my Etsy shop! If you'd like this little bunny to be yours, I hope you'll hop on over and find out all about him! There will be other Panda Bunnies so if you'd like one on down the line, be sure to let me know. His adoption fee is $175 which includes free shipping worldwide. Isn't he sweeeeeet?
Panda Bunny was adopted IMMEDIATELY! Thank you so much Caryn!!

Need a Panda Bunny for your Basket??

Just a little peek at a new friend who will be hopping down the bunny trail to my Etsy shop this next week. It will be first come first served, so be sure to sign up for my mailing list if you would like to be notified when P. B. is available! I expect to be listing him tomorrow night or Tuesday. He's not one of a kind, but I probably won't have a chance to get another made before Easter. Hope you like him!!

P. S. He may have some candy in that basket! hehe

Spring Returns!

I hope the world where you are looks as beautiful as it does here! Have you ever noticed how many colors of green there are in Spring? They all sort of change into one hue later in the year, but for now the palette is endless!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Well, we're all a little Irish today, eh? Thought I'd make a couple of greetings for the day. Feel free to copy them and send them to friends if you like! I'd appreciate your letting them know where they came from. Maybe they will drop by and say hello! Wishing you joy on this day!!!

Rocky - The Man!

I don't want to say that he posed for this photo, but Rocky knows when he looks good!! I've decided that he's grown into a much more elegant kitty than the tumbly kitten we named "Rocky" so from now on, he'll be known as Rocky Pierre!

Pretty Petticoats

Tomorrow is preview day for the upcoming online show with Teddies Worldwide! While I can't show that picture 'till tomorrow, or the other pretty little girly bears I'm making until the actual show, I thought I would photograph some of the doings around their outfits!

I found these neat handkerchiefs with edging designed for embellishment. It occurred to me that half the handkerchief would make a dandy petticoat for a little bear. I began with single crochet all around.
The next round was made with three chains and a slip stitch into every single crochet all around.

And finally, the fluffy round! Six double crochets in every other chain 3 space, with slip stitches in every other chain 3 space.
When the crocheting is done, I gather the uncrocheted top edge and fit it to the waist of the little bear!
Be sure to check back tomorrow afternoon to see the preview bear. She has a lovely petticoat - different from this one, and I hope you will visit the show to see the other bears in a couple of weeks!!

March Fun

Spring Suspect

Footprints walk
In ones and twos,

Tracking kitchen floors
with ooze

Who’s the culprit
We accuse

March, the month
Of muddy shoes!

My dear friend Sarah found this poem in a magazine and sent it along to me. The only notation of authorship is "D. A. W." So thanks, D.A.W., for a lovely March chuckle!!
Just have to add some kitty fun! Ours all live indoors and their feet never touch dirt, so they wouldn't be the culprits!
 Beau is a donut fan - clearly!

Max is a "sink sitter.!" Kim tells me there's a website called Cats in Sinks - but I haven't checked that.

I just love to get these kinds of photos in a text message or email! The new phones let you turn the camera around for self portraits!
Here are Jason and Sam!

and Kim and Beaker!!

Southern Virginia is currently getting lots of rain - an inch an hour the weather lady says. Blub, blub!!
