Michelley and the mouse

Michelley, aka the Swiss Miss, is not fat and here is the main reason why: exercise.


My Fat Cat

It has come to my attention that little mister Kongy is starting to put on the chub-chub! Janda and I need a bigger house for him and his sister to run around in.

Summer Projects

I went into this past summer with high hopes of getting many many projects done. I didn't exactly finish as many as I'd have liked,but I did get a few done. Since summer officially ended last week, here's what I accomplished.


An old dry erase board turned into a retro chalkboard.


Mini-quilt, of course it's cat themed.


A pink silk cabled scarf, modeled by the most beautiful girl I could find.


The biggest project of them all, the family of cats. Luckily I had help with this one from my dad and the rest of my family. They were quite a handful and boy do I miss them. I'm glad that Girly-girl got to stay!
