Funness ... Meow.

You are a Random cat! Also known as an alley cat

or a mutt. You aren't given to high-falutin'

ways, but you're accessible and popular.

People love you for who you are, not what you


What breed of cat are you?

Needlechat ...

Image hosted by I have pulled my fibers and pattern for Cherished Workes. I like this piece of lambswool linen from my stash & will have to see if it is large enough for the case & needlebook. If I have more linen, I could always stitch the third motif (maybe for the inside pocket?) as I didn't purchase the floss palatte. I have most of the overdye & some skeins of floss. This SAL is from the Sewing Smalls Yahoo group. I should have the basting lines in & part of the red house before the next part is suggested on Jan 12th. Probably launch this on Monday.

Image hosted by Nikki, you look the way I feel. Drove Tori & her friend back to Indiana University yesterday, I have much to do today & only have the energy to read ... hmmmm ... some days are just like that.

"I have a belief on my own, and it comforts me .... That by desiring what is perfectly good, even when we don't quite know what it is and cannot do what we would, we are part of the divine power against evil--widening the skirts of light and making the struggle with darkness narrower." by George Eliot, Middlemarch.

Mystery Sampler - SAL in progress

This must be SAL week : )
Image hosted by
Mystery Sampler by Jana P. Kerr. For December, we did 3,4,&5 of the 15 lessons. The four-sided stitches & satin stitches were delightful. Not too sure of the irish stitch -- they were a bit difficult for me; however, the end result is interesting.

Took Tori & David back to I.U. Alex rode along. We unloaded everything at Tori's dorm and went to the bookstore. Such high prices : ( Anyhow, didn't stay long as there was the 200 mile drive back. My Mom came by the house & had lunch with Nick + took him to the school for his pep band gig. I need to master bi-location, soon.
