Kittens and Redbud

A 'redbud' tree.
This bit of colour is for Chris, with all her recent snow.

These kittens belong to a 'half-feral' cat at our office.

She has had them 'out on parade' recently, and we held one of the orange ones last night. She didn't get upset -- she's gotten to the point where she wants someone else to look after them once in a while ;o)


Crafts: I'm putting the red paint on the back of the wooden bowl, and making a 'blank doll' for the shop, which will have hair, but otherwise will be just the muslin body. She will be an alteration on the pattern I drew for 'Angie.' Tonight, I am sewing a white muslin elephant as well as the doll body. I'm not sure whether to paint, embroider, bead, or just leave the elephant plain (with eyes and a tail, at least)... I have to sew his ears on and he is ready for one of the above treatments.

Knitting: I hope the first purple sock will get finshed this weekend -- there is just so much going on, it is in my bag and has been stalled since last Saturday.

Wow, that Amish story is just amazing! You are so right...

Thanks for the color! It seems very far away from here...

Oh, poor kitties. What will become of them?!

I love the kitties and Madeline!

Will ya'll be able to find a home for the kitties?

Our boss is thinking to give one (one of the orange ones is a Manx) to his mom, since her cat died recently :o( The other three will probably go to the flea market with us and find homes there.

It is so hard to catch Doria, their mother, so she hasn't gone to the vet for her 'surgery', like our girls have. J and our boss had a really really hard time just holding her down long enough to get her Feline-5 shot! (I think one or both of them lost blood then)

This is a cute blog that might interest you. The Use What You Have Challenge is intriguing, but sheesh, I did so poorly at Stashalong...

I'm glad to hear that the kittens will get homes!!

I could really stand to use up what supplies I have in making softies for the shop ;o) I'm kind of doing that this week already... can I go a month?
