Hoppy Friday!

I know, I know, you're here for the kitten photos. Hee, hee,hee. It's hard to resist all that cuteness. I am really enjoying my time with them. Remember, I still have three available for adoption to "inside homes." Contact me if you are interested. They will be ready to go to their new homes around September 21. I have given them "temporary" names in the meantime.

D.K. (aka David's Kitty), likes to use Miss Tiggy Wiggins as a pillow during nap time.

They will be four weeks old on Sunday. I love their blue eyes, but I'm told that like babies, their eye color will change to whatever eye color they magically want to be.

This week my cuddle puddle has begun to spread out and explore. It's so much fun watching them walk around like a bunch of drunk clowns.

Little Tabitha is the most adventurous. She was the first to open her eyes, the first to walk and now the first to run and explore.

 She is the smallest of the bunch, but has the biggest personality.

They have all decided they like to sit on my feet.

Miss Tiggy Wiggins continues to melt my heart with her sweetness.

She loves to crawl up in my lap and sit for a bit. Maybe I should read her some Peter Rabbit stories. ;)

D.K. is such a handsome boy and a real sweetheart.

His markings are just gorgeous with the black, gray, white and tan.

I think his dark nose is so cute. He could even be named Charlie for Charlie Chaplin.

This is Shamus de Barrington. He will be going to live with my friend, Gerri.

He is such a lovey boy. He is the biggest of the puddle, but he is laid back, loves to be pet and is an absolute sweetheart.

I keep telling him he has the perfect name because his markings look so royal.

Here he is posing for a spread in GQ Cat Magazine. ;)

They love to play and wrestle. Here Tiggy Wiggins is wrestling with Shamus while D.K. is refereeing.

Tabitha decided to try and wrestle Sabrina. 

Their favorite game is the "Pile On" game where they all try to be the one on top of the pile. They usually fall asleep instead and return to being my little cuddle puddle.

The bunnies are doing great. In fact, next Friday will be a bunny post. Have a great weekend and we'll see you back here Monday for my new Folk Art Fusion pattern, "Falling for You."

Fellowship of the Flowers

Here we go with Week 34!

Every time I look at this flower, it reminds me of a print on a little girls dress.

I think it just looks sweet and innocent.

Maybe I'm hanging out with bunnies and kittens so much I want to stitch sweet look stuff. hee,hee,hee.

We sure have come a long way with the flowers. Click on the Fellowship of the Flowers tab above and take a stroll back through all of them and the projects.

Hugs and see ya Friday!

One week delay

Well, I was hoping to debut my new Folk Art Fusion design, "Falling for You" today, but it looks like it's going to be next Monday. My shipment of wool for the kits came in, and there was an error with one of the colors.

Instead of sending me Peat Moss, which is used on the squirrels, they sent Royal Blue. Not a good look for squirrels.

So, until next Monday I will simply show you a little more of the design and the beautiful Valdani pearl cotton I stitched with. This is one of my favorites. I love the variegation in it. The kits will contain the pearl cotton and the yarn needed for couching.

Have a fun day and a fun week.

Hoppy Friday! Be the Good

Hi ya! I hope you had a wonderful week. Mine was much better. Thank you for your hug last week. It made me feel so much better. :)

So today I'm grateful for you my friend. You make me smile, you lift me up, you hold my hand and make my world such a beautiful place.

Here are some recent photos of the cuddle puddle to make you smile on this wonderful Friday.

I took Sabrina and the kittens to the vet on Monday. There are two girls and two boys. This is one of the little girls. She was the first to open her eyes. She is small, but not afraid of anything. Just a sweetie pie!

This is Miss Tiggy Wiggins.

She likes her feet. She thinks they're neat. (Sorry, couldn't resist. hee,hee,hee)

She also loves to lay on her back.

This is one of the little boys. He has been adopted and will go to his forever home on September 21. My friend, Gerri and her husband adopted him. They wanted him to have a regal name. I live on Barrington Way, so they named him Shamus de Barrington. I love it.

He's sound asleep and sucking his thumb. ;)

Sabrina is such a sweet mama. She lets the kids climb all over her and play. Here she is with the other boy.

Here he is having a little adventure. Both boys have the marbled coat and the girls have the striped coat.

In this photo, he's saying to his sister, "Vet? We're going to the vet? What's a vet?

Needless to say, while Sabrina was amazing at the vet when they took her from her babies, had blood drawn, tests run etc., she was totally mad at me when we returned home. She took all the babies from the sleepy box and hid them behind the toilet. She informed me that they are not coming out from behind the toilet until she says so.

I gave her some extra treats for being such a good mama and patient. I felt so bad taking her to the vet. I know she was so scared. She's been through so much in her little life.

So here is the cuddle puddle yesterday evening. They will be three weeks old on Sunday. They make me laugh how they all sleep on top of each other with legs and tails everywhere. A true puddle.

Three kittens are still available for adoption. They must go to "indoor" homes. Contact me if you are interested.

Here's a little song for you. It's one of my favorites.

Be sure and visit me Monday! I will have a new Folk Art Fusion design available for you. I think you will really like it.

Light, love and hugs to you!

Fellowship of the flowers Week 33


So this week I decided to bring a little bling back.

I added the sparkly yarn

and some beads.

Recently, I've had a bunch of people on Facebook ask me if my stitches were all by hand. The answer is Yes! I love to hand stitch. I find it so therapeutic and relaxing.

Sometimes, in fact the older I get, I just don't feel like being in a hurry with everything. Simply put, I would rather do less and enjoy more. I find it's not about getting a million things done so I can say, "I did all of this!" It's more about doing a few things and saying, "I loved every single minute of doing this!" 

Light, love and hugs to you,
Michelle and the fuzzy crew
