Cats and More

How much fun is this ......


Received it for Mother's Day from my family.  The cat looks just like my Mick Jagger who has MOVED IN.  He crawls under the covers for his afternoon snooze!


Here's a recent photo of my 'bag of chips"....er..cats!  Left to right:  Belle, Casanova, Mick Jagger and Jaxon.  The best news of all is that Cee-Lo Red returned for dinner last night after a month of recuperation in the south of France..who knows where he's been.  I'll post a pic when he settles down.  I'm so happy he has returned.


My darling sister, Cathy, made me this treasure box for Mother's Day. Isn't it lovely??  She is one very talented gal and I'm blessed to have her in my life.


Here's my progress on Mary Roe.  I'm just about finished.  I loved doing the Rice Stitches.  They are beautiful and add so much to the piece.



Thanks for stopping by.  Have a Simply Fabulous week !!

Cute sign and I love your kitty. I used to have a black one too that was just a sweetheart. His name was Bosco (like the chocolate syrup - do they still make that?).

Mary Roe is coming along great (one for my to-do list) and how sweet of Cathy to send that to you!!!

Have you started Phebe yet????

Good progress on Mary Roe. I love the colors in that. The bright pinks and blues. Lovely!! I love the sign, lol. I would like to have more than one, but Yes Dear insists on being an only child. Glad to hear your wayward son has returned home too. That's awesome!!

How did I miss your post? Oh my heck love your Mary Roe! I do think those rice stitches are all that...and a bag of chips...

Your kitties are darling and so very lucky to have you for their mama... Mick has shiny fur! Cute! Okay...but maybe you might be tipping...just a little bit of tipping... I'm going to have to come visit, just to make sure! Can't wait for pics of Cee-Lo!

XOXO

Love that sign--tooo cute! Your cats are adorable. Our Ginger June went to the Rainbow Bridge a year before we moved here & my DH keeps talking about getting another cat.

Beautiful present from Cathy! Man, I soooo wish I had sisters! ;)

Your Mary Roe--OH MY GOSH. Gorgeous. If I can pull myself out of my slump, I definitely want to get that one--love the colors in it.

Oh my god, that sign is just so cute! Can't show it to Mia though. We think she would object strongly to another cat in the house. lol! Love your mary Roe! Love what Cathy made you too! Love seeing your cats all lined up for dinner -- what a great pic!
