Crazy Cat

Sushi, my cat, is one crazy cat.
Aside from my pet monkey,
she is the most entertaining pet
I've ever been in contact with.
As you can see from the pictures below,
she likes to help me with the grocery bags....

They just don't make the straps big enough to fit over my head.

Maybe I'll try slipping the strap over my arms first.

she likes to help me sew,

Why does she keep sticking these picky things in that tiny cupcake?

Ok - now she's just plain ignoring me...

she's helpful when it comes to cleaning out the fridge,

Hmmm ... seems like the perfect spot to VEG for awhile.
she likes to clean out the cupboard,

Bubble, Bubble, boil and trouble... let's see what kind of trouble I can get in.
sometimes she likes to help me file,

Paperwork! Who needs it? I'm outta here.
her favourite place to hang out is on the staircase where she can keep an eye on everything and everybody,

They have no idea how cool it is to be in the nosebleed section.
when she's done hanging there...she heads on up to the bathroom cupboard to her next favourite spot,

sometimes she likes to think we can't see her behind the garbage can,

If I sit really still with my toes together, they'll never see me.
sometimes, she likes to read when she thinks no one is watching,

If I hide behind the page, they'll never suspect I can read.
sometimes, she's just plain cool.

Sometimes, I'm just plain cool.

Oh ya... I'm cool.
Problem is... I just can't seem to get her to push the vacuum around instead of hiding from it. Hopefully... someday.
If they think I'm vacuuming again... they can forget it.

Some New Stitchy Pics To Share.

This past Wednesday we had our monthly "cross stitch meeting" at my house. As we were talking and sharing, Anita pulled these finished pieces out of her bag. Boy, has she been busy!

This first one called Peace, Love and a Cure is by Lizzie Kate. Love the colours in this one, but more importantly the message.

How cute are these? They are both from Bent Creek's the "Snappers" series. Can't wait to see Anita stitch more of these :^) 

Done just in time to have sitting out to enjoy for the rest of this month. I can't believe how fast July is flying by!

Anita did a beautiful job as usual... not just on the stitching part but also the framing. She got these frames pre-made and finished them up herself.
I'm already looking forward to our get together next month to see if anyone has any more new finishes to share!


Christmas 2016

Christmas 2016 was held at Jody's this year and we were lucky we had good weather for our travel eastbound.  If there is going to be a...
