A Little Bit of Everything

Hey y'all!
It's been another crazy week.
The rain just won't stop
and the warm weather teases us here 
in Iowa
and the very politely bows out
to allow the cold to creep back in.
Isn't it amazing how lady-like
the warmth is?
How nice of her to let the cold 
encompass us 
and allow for all this confusion of
"Do I put my winter close away or not?"
That's what I say.

Our days have pretty much looked like this
(in between rain showers)

So what does a gal do to get herself all cheery?
When there isn't time to sew
I stare at my stash.
Like these little beauties of
Little Red Riding Hood by Tasha Noel

I think she is so adorable
and will be cute fussy cut in a pouch...

...while picking mushrooms
Speaking of mushrooms,
I don't think those luscious morels are
going to find their way out this year
if it doesn't warm up soon!

And how about this sweet little treat of
Honey Honey by Kate Spain?
(thanks to my bestest sister, Sarah!)

And this fabric is just plain fun

I do have a project started using these fabrics.
The lilac colored fabrics are
Joel Dewberry's Blooms and Lattice

And in case you didn't see my photo on Flickr,
we have 4 new additions to our home.
A couple months ago
a very sweet, pregnant stray cat showed up on our doorstep
(she must have known she found a good home)
I didn't have the heart to take her in to be spayed,
so she had her kittens here
(and now I will be taking 5 cats in to be spayed/neutered when they are old enough)

But look at these adorable babies

The other two were being shy,
so I will have to show you them later.
I'm so glad this mama found us.
She has been a dream
and believe it or not,
our dogs love her!
It's like she was meant to be with us.

I hope this finds you all with lots of
exciting things taking place in your life!

Your sewing looks like it would cheer up your dreary days a bit.

Love you kitties.

Melissa P said... kitties. That will cheer up any household no matter what the weather is doing. Mama Cat sure knew how to pick herself a home. :)

Happy weekend sewing!

Deborah said...

The kitty with the 2 colors are her face is remarkable. I've never seen anything like it. I'm sending this to my daughter who is a lover of all furry animals!

Doris said...

Are you looking for homes for the kitties?

Love your fabrics, the text and typewriters are fabulous. And I want to do some sewing with Honey Honey myself this Spring.

Mama Pea said...

You have some great fabrics there. I'd love to play in your stash. :-) I love text fabrics, but I have the hardest time picking some out for myself. What is up with that?


Yep the weather is awful at the moment, we have had snow today! But it means I sew instead of spending time weeding in the garden so its a good thing! Gotta look on the bright side, and those kittens are adorable!
