Happy Caturday!

Kitty #selfie!

Rose says hello!

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. 😉

I bought this super cutie as a welcome home gift for my daughter.  It's custom made by the fabulous duo at Deranged Delightz on Etsy. #mushroom #crochet

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!

Feeling totally spoiled! Birthday goodies in the mail from my friend Terry.  ♡

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.

The owls on my birthday socks from Terry!

 

And the socks? THEY HAVE OWLS ON THEM!

Not quite where I wanted to be today, but closer than I was before! #projectofdoom #fandominstitches #harrypotter
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!

How can evil be so cute? And Cats, just because.

Two #Cthulhu are better than one! #crochetHappy Saturday!

Yesterday, I crocheted the dark green Cthulhu you see her for my hubby to take to work.

Baby C has lived in on his bedside table for quite a few years now and he really wanted another to geek up his desk at work, so I obliged. Big C was relatively fast to make and just so cute! Baby C was Caron Simply Soft, and Big C was made from worsted acrylic. It was a cake of yarn, so I’m not sure what brand, could have been Bernat.

 

The free pattern is here.

Hanging out with Rose.  #sheltercat #rescuekitty #catsofinstagram

Our new baby, Rose, is doing well. She is still mostly hiding, but I can coax her out with treats and when I do, she is so, so sweet and snuggly. For some reason, some loves my big toes and will lay in my lap with her paws on either side of one toe, like she’s holding on to it. That’s a new one on me!

She has met both Merlin and Marie, and while there had been very mild hissing, there was an initial 5 seconds of tail poufing and that was it. M & M have pretty much ignored her since becoming aware of her existence. I think once she comes out of my bedroom, they will take more interest. The door has been wide open for three days, but Rose hasn’t ventured past the door yet. I carried her to the top of the stairs and she was pretty much scared silly, so I put her down and she dashed back under my bed.

Merlin in a sunbeam.
This is Merlin in a sunbeam, just because. At 16 1/2, he’s the old man of the house now. He’s had a few health issues recently, but as my wonderful vet said, he’s doing pretty good for a guy his age.

Our beautiful Marie is no longer the baby of the house, but the sassy lady. She’s very curious about Rose and I have a feeling that once the Miss R settles in, they will be excellent playmates.
