What Does Your Cat Read?

Is there a suggested reading lists for cat?

I think CeCe has read this one more than once because she has mastered the fine art of catnapping.
And Squeaks.

What else would a diva read??
Now Murphy is a different story. I have not seen him pick a book very often.
He seems to prefer the electronic media.

I am sure he is learning something or helping DH make some important decision.
Even Tonya gets in the act every once in awhile. I think she is dreaming she is a dragon flying over a steak house. I have such intellectual animals.

So, do your pets have a favorite?
Honest, not a single picture was staged--just captured.
Hope everyone had a happy Monday!

Time to Finish the Story

Or sort of expand on yesterday's gift show-off.
I really have some very sweet friends and they know me so well.
Remember the box that Di sent?
I love boxes.

Well, I have been remiss in showing off gifts from Lola
I really do love boxes.
I really love purple too.
Here is the one from Lola.

And I was running around showing DH the first thing that came out of Di's box.

Yes Di, I love cows and I love flags.
And here was the one from Lola.
You two didn't talk about this did you???

Look at those cute purple flip flops and excuse the weeds popping out of my lavender bush.
Now, Di gave me purple love birds.

Very, very sweet.
And Lola made me a purple cow.

With angel wings and all. 
And Di gave me fat quarters.
And a purple zipper.
And Lola gave me fat quarters.
And they both gave me more.
I feel spoiled!!!
Oh, and I did put the zippers in the box.

I think I need to get busy and make some bags. I have lots of zippers now.
At least they have a pretty home now.
Thank you both for all of the goodies.

I Fell Off the Wagon

I believe I said I was not going to start anything new before I finished the quilt I was working on. I know, BUT Joy showed me this very fun sew along at Terry's Treasures and I decided I needed to play too.
I am addicted to scraps lately, so it called my name, none too softly.
And I have already finished my two for this month and can get right back to what I need to do.
So, this is what I have done so far:


I will control myself and only do two.
They are pretty addicting.
I also had more goodies from the mailman today.
Di sent me a sweet box full of birthday presents.
And I have to say getting late presents is pretty fun because it spreads the joy.
So, a quick peek, because this thing is taking forever to download tonight.
This was inside the box:

Bad angle, but it is a really cool box that has all kinds of goodies inside.
I am already trying to decide what sewing item is going to find a home in here.
Hmmmmmm????? Maybe zippers--that will make sense later.
I will show you all the goodies inside in my next post.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend, no matter what you are up to.

Getting There!!!

My gazillion tiny little squares are finally starting to look like they are supposed to.
Still have a ways to go, but at least I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I am getting antsy to start something new.
Short attention span is kicking in big time.

This is one reason that I am getting impatient.
The nice mail lady brought me this yesterday:

Drool, drool, drool.
No idea what I am going to do with it yet, but I will get there.

I will get there as soon as I finish what I am already doing.
In my dreams!
Change is as good as a holiday????
Can't believe it is already August--need to get a move on.
Stay cool everyone!
