A New Friend

We've had a new friend around here for a few weeks. Started with just quick visits, then he hung around enough that brother could pet him at times.

With the cold weather, I ordered him a "house" (litter box with lid) from Amazon...and fitted it with a thick towel and a fleece blanket. He is not snug, well fed...and totally at home. Yesterday, I put a flea collar on him with no problem...not sure if he was a pet before; as he was a bit wild at the start. But, he has certainly been handled before as he likes to be picked up and get head rubs.

The cat box is a corner model but it also comes in a standard square style. It has a hinged door, which I removed because he was not so "sure" about that. It is turned facing the house on the porch, so doesn't get any direct wind...put when it was really cold this morning; he slept with his hind foot over his ear (at least I think that is why he was laying in that position).

Silk Ribbon Cabochon Kits - $5 each

Hi everyone!

I'm working on some upcoming class projects (not online classes)...and have extra "kits" available if anyone is interested in giving this a try.

The "inside" is a glass flat-back cabochon. The backing is felt and the tie-tack is included in the kit. The silk ribbon is white, but you can easily dye it or ink it with markers to add color.

Here's my version:

But, you could actually do anything you wanted on the front...assuming you wanted to change up the design.

At just five dollars for the full could have a fun day with a few friends as you created these. Full color instructions, glass cabochon, fabric, ribbon, etc. (see above listing) included. All you need to provide is some E-6000 glue, chenille needle for the ribbon, and standard sewing supplies to create these. They take about an hour from start to finish...not including the drying time for the glue. ;)

Just email me if you are many...and I can send you a PayPal invoice to your email address.
