Day 28?! – Heron, etc

I can’t believe it’s the last day! Thanks so much for the suggestions on the background. I wasn’t sure about the green but it was pretty unanimous so I tried it and I really like it. So, thanks, everybody!  I

Day 21 – rats

Okay, now I’ve forgotten what I did on Day 21. Rats. And I just noticed I missed a day earlier in the month. Oh, well.  Here’s a picture of Charlie and Mish to make up for it. She looks like

The Pink House is Gone!

     If you followed Charlie’s adventures last year you may remember the abandoned, boarded up pink house that I fantasized about turning into a haunted bed and breakfast (link to post here). I re-read my post and I said

Day 6 – working at home

This is my work table right now. Can you spot my helper? My favorite kind of job besides working on my own stuff is to work for other crafters. Here you can see the tea towels I iron to set

I found an Instructable on make molds from silicon caulk, using dishwashing liquid as the catalyst.  The first photo is the three objects I decided to make molds of. The bisque cat face was my inspiration (I have a jewelry project

Day 26: Cat toy

Moxie keeps trying to eat my monsters that I make, so I made her her own toy out of some cheap yarn. It’s stuffed with pollyfill and catnip. She seems to like it well enough, although I doubt it’ll stop

Day 22: Moxie Drawing

Quick charcoal sketch of my cat from an old photo. She’d gotten inside a packing envelope, and the look on her face is pretty priceless. Distinctly a “Mommy, don’t ship me to Antartica, I promise I’ll stay off the table!”

Sick Day (me, not Charlie)

Poor Charlie didn’t get any walks today. I’ve got the kid’s stomach virus and almost never left the couch. We’re sick of Ramen soup and Premium crackers and out of ginger ale. Fortunately still had a few ginger snaps left

Day Eleven…

I covered a small ball with one of my favorite quilt canes for a project last year.  I ultimately decided it wouldn’t work and it’s been sitting by my TV for months.  I finally figured out what to do with

Thing a Day 24: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

A Tin Roof sundae is vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, and red Spanish peanuts. A hot Tin Roof is basically just melted ice cream. Put a cat on that and what you have is a mess.

Mt. Vernon, Baltimore scarf finished!

     Click for detail shots as well as one of my cat who got in the middle of things. I don’t love the middle section. I often have trouble with it. I never know what color to make it.

I don’t seem to have a lot of time today so I’ve made a funny little cat and photographed it with my funny big cat before I go out, in case I don’t have another opportunity later.
