The October winner is Beth Strand!
Congratulations, Beth! Make sure you check your flickr messages for details on how to receive your prize.
She loves looking at herself, which makes taking a kitty selfie the obvious thing to do! She and I have been busy bonding and I am loving having a kitty that likes to be picked up and snuggled. Merlin and Marie, our other two kitties are sweeties, but being picked up is not part of their contracts. 😉
Yesterday, I drove up to the University of North Texas to help my daughter move home for the summer. It was a whirlwind day with more traffic than I could have even fathomed. It took me just about three hours to drive there, and five to drive back. Egads, was I tired last night, but so very very glad to have my girl home!
This little guy above is a gift I purchased from a friend’s Etsy shop, Deranged Delightz. He’s a Moshi Mushroom, custom made for my daughter in her two favorite colors as a coming home surprise. She loved him and he will now live with her other favorite stufties!
The very same friend gifted me with a gorgeous pair of socks and a sweet turtle bag for my birthday! I’ve already worn the perfectly fitting, gorgeous socks and the bag carried my snacks for my road trip yesterday.
And the socks? THEY HAVE OWLS ON THEM!
This is the current state of the Make-A-Wish Project of Doom. I really wanted it to be basted before the weekend, but it just didn’t happen. Fortunately, it doesn’t need to be in the mail for another couple of weeks, so I have time to get it basted, quilted and bound. Time’s ticking, but I’ll get it done! That backing fabric? Jelly beans! As my friend Amber said, Bertie Bott’s for everyone!
