Swap Ahoy! -- and worktime!

Thank you everyone for your kind words for Radar -- his owner had been on a trip and is glad to see him alright! What trouble kittens can get into with a few hours on their own, huh? Especially this one ;o) I think his problem is he is too fearless!

My swap package is OUT in the mail - priority mail! I was waiting on things from Etsy and they arrived yesterday, YAY!

I hope my swap partner gets my package on time! I'm still amazed she hasn't found me here - even with a slight goof I might have made earlier that could have revealed my identity!

Sewing tomato graphic made in the GIMP by the KnitOwlPrototyping fever has struck and I will soon shut down my computer (gasp!), clear my worktable, and then fill it back up again with fabric and thread :o) I have one last wire sculpture to add some details to as well - the man who bought my rabbit sculpture said I should make another one, life-size! (some nice people at Yahoo Answers told me what 'life-size' is, which was great! *10-14"(length)x5-7(breadth)"x5-7"(height-back)* with ears half as long as the body)

J stayed up ALL night last night, and didn't go to bed until 10 AM this morning! That is even worse than me! (and not usual, lately)

Cool stuff elsewhere:

I just finished reading The Shadow Thieves, and there's a grey and white kitty in it that reminded me of your girls and Radar! :)

Oh, that artist who did the knitting art has some interesting things.

Danger! Danger!

You stayed up all night??!? Tsk, tsk.

I got Mr. Sloth! He came in the mail today. He's really cute. We're playing with him, he's so bendy! Awesome job, RheLynn.

As soon as I make some knitting progress (which'll be hard because I just ripped back to the arm decrease) I'll post pics of him. Or when I give up on making any progress, which will probably come first.

RheLynn said...

Thanks Carrie! :o) Mr. Sloth is going to love it there -- that low body temperature and all ;o)

Chris: looked for that book at the library - no luck, they didn't have the other book I wanted either! Finally rented out 'A Mystery of Errors' by Simon Hawke.... not sure if I'm going to like it, but it looked interesting! (Shakespeare escaping being assassinated even!)

Chris said...

Oh, this is cool: indoor soccer ball. Hmmm... interested in a commission?! :)

RheLynn said...

Chris: On that commission idea -- if it is for a certain beautiful baby, you could consider it a late baby gift from me :o) I'd just need an address when it is finished.
