It's a cold rainy day here in northern Illinois.
Did you see those undead kitties on Christine's blog?
She sent me one and it is so darling. I love it!

She also sent me a photo of her husband's talent.

It's Trebarwith Strand. She wrote that it's a beach, a mile down the road from their house. I think Christine is luckest girl in the world to live in such a beautiful place on this earth. Thank You! for your generosity.

I sent something out too.

I stitched this pinkeep for Stephanie. It's a little Thank You! for the big package she sent me.

The design is from Mary Garry's Sewing Cabin "Forget-Me-Not-Sampler" pin cushion with color changes to make it look bright and not so prim for her.

O.k. now to show you my sale finds.

I am so excited about the bottom I found for the small flower frog I found a few weeks ago.

I think the bottom looks like a crown and it fits perfectly.

Nothing special about these scissors, but had to have them, all for a 1.00

The potholder? makes me smile.

I will leave you with an update on "Happy Camper"

Thanks so much for visiting.

Laundry today! OR Naked tomorrow!

Oh, my gosh what a cute kitty! :D Nice find for the flower frog bottom, and stitching too!

Annie said...

All kinds of cute things today. I guess you've already filled up this scissors frog with your new ones!

The kitty is adorable. And your pin pillow is the sweetest.

I guess no family photos tomorrow if you don't do the laundry. ;-)

Laundry or naked, tough choice, lol.

Love your cat - too cute.

Your scissor frog is fabulous and that sweet blue vase in the background is darling.

Pumpkin said...

Kitty is a little freaky looking! LOL! LOVE the photography :o)

Great progress on your Happy Camper. I have all the supplies but keep forgetting about it. Maybe I should did it out.

PLEASE no photos tomorrow if you don't get the laundry done ;o)

Deb said...

I have never seen those kitties before! They're cute.

YGG on the flower frog - I love it - you're right, it does look like a crown. And those scissors for $1.00 - be still my heart. One can never have enough scissor whether we use them or not. And I love, love the potholder too!

Hope that you get the laundry done or I won't be visiting your house! LOL
