Ahoy there me hearties......... It's Pirate Cat and his First Mate Rat. They're off to sail the Seven Seas.
He's a well seasoned pirate, seen a few battles, hence the scars.
Searched for buried treasure, walked the plank once or twice, but as you know kitty kats have 9 lives.
Well this fellow, has used up several of those so he's taking things a bit easier these days.
Sorry 'bout the slightly blurry pic, but click to enlarge and see the detail.
Just need to sew up his 'nether regions' and he's done, ready for my next market.
Hope the skull and crossbones isn't too gruesome.......... I did use bright, cheery fabric though...
This was the second parcel that turned up in my letter box this week.
All the way from Virginia USA.......
The very clever and creative Janet at The Empty Nest had a giveaway recently.
She whipped up some lovely 'circle scarves'using various yarns. I was lucky enough to win one.
We had a choice of colours as she gave away several. I also received an extra surprise, this gorgeous little crocheted flower brooch. It's sooooooo soft and such beautiful colours.
Thankyou Janet, I love them.
It's going to be a while before the weather is cool enough to use the scarf. This week has been incredibly humid. It's like living in the tropics, not my idea of fun.
Fortunately a thunder storm has just come through cooling everything down and giving the garden a good drink.
We are meant to be in for a wet weekend, up to 4 inches of rain and cooler temps. yay....
A little visit to Spotlight had me drooling over these gorgeous vintage style fabrics. They came in a roll and were 50% off the price. So that was that, nice price and that toadstool fabric, sold.....
Not sure what I will use it for as I am not a quilter, but I am sure I could come up with a few ideas.
In fact.......... the polka dots and the stripes would make nice little eye patches me thinks, hmmm.
Talking about kitty kats, had to take this photo of Tigger, he looked awfully comfortable, I didn't want to disturb him.
Wouldn't you like to be able to sleep anytime anywhere?
What a life they have.
I spotted some acorns in town this afternoon, gorgeous limey green.
It feels like Autumn is on the doorstep................
No doubt some more warm weather to come, but the mornings are cooling, the days are shortening.
Better check out the state of the wood pile !
I had a day in town today. Appointment at the Optometrists for my 2 yearly checkup.
My prescription has changed so new lenses ordered, ouuuuuuuuuuch that hurt.
I needed to visit my favourite op shop afterwards and see if there were any treasures to cheer me up.
For $1.00 I came away with a couple of little beauties which I will show you next post after I have laundered them.
I hope your week is going well.
Thankyou all for taking the time to pay me a visit and say "hi" ,
Till next time, take care,
