we have new additions

Posted on: November 16, 2008

to the family.

First of all . . .

and then there are these guys.

This is such a good little pattern and I have been recycling some fabrics around the house. The guy in the front is meant to be Kurt Cobain. He is awaiting a face. He was a request from Purl. The two redheads were made on Friday and the others last night and today

And, I made a sock tote! And a monster but I am not going to share that because I completely ripped it off and I don’t want to upset anyone. Darn copyright.

Next in the sewing stakes is a robot that I designed myself, with some help from Tiny Madam and Number One Son! What a hoot! As soon as he is done I will show you. He is going to be a Christmas gift for my friend’s little boy.

Tiny Madam turns six in 10 days and the kitten is hers. At the moment we are aclimatising our other cat. Things are a bit shaky between the two of them right now, but getting better. Our old cat was a hissing furball mess yesterday. Now she’s just hissing. The kitten on the other hand is as happy as Larry.

Thank you for your kind thoughts regarding Auntie. She is still hanging in there! I haven’t been able to see here this week because I managed to pick up some kind of lurgy and have been coughing and spluttering left, right and centre.

I had better go and do some knitting. The Spunk has been instructed to ping something at my forehead if I go near any fabric this evening. I have deadline knitting to finish! Oh yeah, and a week at school to plan for!

Love the softies! Especially Kurt Cobain – very cool!!

So, should the planning come first and then the knitting? Oh, what the heck, it’s Sunday; you can plan [in your head] while you knit. AS long as you’re not knitting lace [as I am – ugh!]

Oh what’s the kitens’ name?? Very cute. Lucky Tiny Madam. You
have been sew busy, that’s a great pattern, I watched her on Martha!! Sometimes Martha has no idea!!
Glad things are going well apart from the Lurgy and potential pinging!!!

i hope your aunt is doing better. positive thoughts your way 🙂

Yay!! new furden 😉 Cute little softies.

Oh Oh Oh the Kitty is soooooooooo cute.
I’m glad any siblings it may have are too far away for me to give in to the cuteness.

Cute kitty!! Very cute dolls. You are VERY clever xx

That’s a cute little kitty (I really wish our kitty had stayed all cute and small, though she is still a fair amount of fun in her supersized state)!

I really need to get some practice with the sewing machine!

Cute kitty and the perfect additions to any family – quiet, non-messy, never hungry!

BTW, you’ve been awarded.

Kurt, awesome. I can see what his face should be like too! Congrats on new kitty.

ah, she’s gorgeous!
