~*Not A Dust Bunny*~

Hello Dear Friends! Yup! I'm back! My computer is on the mend... and I'm hoping it stays this way. While it was down though... someone was making himself at home in the little cubby behind the monitor... that isn't a dust bunny back there...

This is Itty Bitty. He is my stepson's cat. I didn't know him as a kitten, but hear was was really tiny then. Now though... he is pleasantly PLUMP! (I'm not even sure how he got back there ~ he is VERY pleasantly PLUMP!) Isn't this just a classic kitty look? (slightly perturbed that he was awaken from a dreamy nap)

Now that my computer is back up & running... and the kitty has moved on to another spot... I can get back to working on the cover for that model I was teasing you with last week. It will be released as soon as I can get that cover worked up... it is the hard part for me.

I've got all kinds of ideas meandering around my head. Now there are more! My bud Joanne sent me what she calls "a cheese box full of trash". Believe me though, this is NOT trash! Can you just imagine the delight in my eyes when I opened the huge box FedEx dropped off the other day & saw all these goodies? ...a wooden cheese box, a smaller wooden box with a pincushion under the lid, a step stool, a ceramic 'pail', some cotton cording for finishing rugs, and a sweet kitty card... Thank you so much Joanne! You do know how to send & give GREAT goodies!

The quilt behind them is a machine quilt ~ with some of the funnest, brightest colors ~ that I picked up last weekend at a local auction. Sure it has some stains, but I think it will make a pretty table cloth for our pot luck/go kart parties. Pretty huh?

There is more to share... but photos & thoughts need to be gathered... and yes, computer work needs to be done... along with hooking, punching, and STITCHING!

Until next time...

Wishing you all warm smiles...


  1. Love the yellow quilt with the 9patch. Just beautiful.

  2. Wish all dust bunnie's were that cute!
    A nice treasure in that cheese box, I'd say!

  3. So glad the computer was a quick fix! You sure Itty Bitty wasn't foolin' around with the wires, just so he can clear you out of his nap area? ;-) Joanne sent just the right goodies to inspire you to create! Looking forward to updates! :-)

  4. That's one cute dust bunny! :) Glad to hear your computer is up and running again. Great gift from Joanne!

  5. The quilt just seems to say summer...very pretty. I can only imagine how beautiful your trash items will turn out after you are done with them!! Just love the big dust bunny too.....they get in the craziest spots. Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend.

  6. It is amazing what spots a cat can fit into, lol.
    I can't wait to see what you make with your new junk;)


  7. Glad you're back up and running. Very nice 'trash' I'd say! Love the quilt, too!

  8. Great goodies. Looks like fun.
    Stop by I'm having a party!
