My greeting

Dishes in the sink, fabric piling up, cat hair on my clothes-all is well in my world!

Josie-Pics of the week

So things are starting to settle down at Kitty Central! Everyone seems to be calming down a little although there is still some hissing going on! I am certain each day will bring the LOOOOVVVEEEE!
Here are some pics -
 Josie on the love seat, Thelma on the back of the chair
 Josie and Louise on the table together and Louise is getting a snack!
 Another shot of Josie and Thelma- love black kitties!
I got an e-mail with this image in it and I just thought it was hysterical- it makes me laugh! Maybe because I had hamsters for years and they are adorable!

2 Sweet Kitties

I also had the joy of doing two sweet kitties who's names are Lucy and Leo! Their mom made a $100 donation to Buffalo Paws and Claws and had them made into a fabric version of themselves!

They were fun to do! Here is their story:

Mr T

So you've seen the progression of Mr T and now he is done!
 The real Mr T
My version of this sweet boy-here is his story:

Josie pic of the week- for Dawn

For you Dawn- I'm going to post a picture of Josie each week. Here she is lounging on the couch-
So if you've gone to the website for Buffalo Paws and Claws you know I am making quilts for anyone who donates $100. Here are some pix of Mr T, a beautiful Rottweiler. It isn't finished yet but I'm getting there!. When he is done I will post the finished quilt and his story.
 Tracing Mr.T
 Picking the right fabrics is the trick!
 And of course having a good inspector-
 He's starting to look good!
Now I have to do all the stitching then he will be done!

Meet Josie

Josie is my newest kid! She is such a sweetie! Josie had been through a lot in her 7 years-surgeries, cancer, and moving around a bit. She came from Buffalo Paws and Claws and is so dear. Jack loves her, Louise is getting to know her and Thelma, well, Thelma is being a little snotty! But I have no doubt she will come around and they will be "buds".
 Josie lounging
Louise is peeking around the corner…

Meet Thelma

You've met Jack and Louise, so now meet Thelma! Thelma is Louise's sister even though they don't look anything alike. And very different personalities! Thelma likes to nap about 18 hours a day, eat, get rubbed a little and them go nap. Louise, I am convinced, hardly sleeps!
 Thelma likes to lay on her back with her legs all in the air
A rare moment -Thelma and Louise together- they usually don't snuggle! Of course they are laying on my sewing stuff!

Meet Jack

This is Jack. He is a long-haired Chihuahua that my ex-husband gave me as a gift. The marriage lasted 8 years. Jack has lasted 13 and going strong! Yes, he's getting hard of hearing, yes, he has accidents, yes, he's totALLY CUTe! ( Louise is on my keyboard again!) Nowadays Jack is just happy to eat, poop, and nap.
Tomorrow Josie is coming to live with us. Josie is a kitty from Buffalo Paws and Claws who just had her leg amputated because of cancer. She is doing fine now and hopefully everyone will get along! I keep telling them they have to be nice- but- ya know-

 Beth had amazing fiber art
 Ina as always had loads of great gifts-I bought one of the birds (at the top of picture)
