Cats and flowers


Cat no.2 just got finished up today. I found the little chair at a thrift store yesterday on the way home from working at our store. Thought it might make a good display for future craft shows. The cats seem to like it.


A close up of cat no.2.


Some of the beautiful flowers in the local nursery that I stopped in to buy some herbs and chili peppers for our garden. 



We are off to the Bay area for the weekend to see our son Jason who has a little time off before the new school year starts again. He sent me a list of things to bring up including my crock pot. Guess I will just have to get myself a new one. I am hoping we will go up Hwy 1 and stop in Big Sur for lunch and visit Nepenthe and the Phoenix gift store, a magical place next to redwoods and incredible ocean vistas. Also hoping to get a few stops in at some of my favorite spots in Berkeley too. Hope you have a great weekend!

Hi Mary,

My favorite part of making dolls (which I have not done for a really long time : P
is the face that emerges...you never know what it will look like and suddenly a unique character emerges, like your little hooked cats...They are adorable as always.
Looks like you are having a lovely Summer! Can't wait to see more of your adventures. Have fun in the Bay area : )
