So Who Stole the Weekend?


Wouldn't it be nice to be able to lounge around in front of the warm fire on a cold winter's day just like my darling Dreamer?


"Jack" had a day out at the show today.  He had a fantastic day again in his last show as a kitten winning a Best In Show in all 3 Judging Rings.  One of the judges "Kerrith" was also a quilter - A lovely lady who I hope is popping by my blog to say Hi.


This is where he planted himself as soon as he got home and gave himself a big wash.  A much deserved wash I must say - He is a lovely boy and Dreamer was very glad to have him back home.  I have a little secret though - Dreamer will be going to the next show. 

I haven't broken the news to him yet as it will involve a little bit of dieting for a few weeks.  I am hoping that Jack will enjoy the shows more if he has Dreamer with him.  If not then he will be retired at the tender age of 1 - LOL.  I am sure I will get no arguements from him - The warm fire will win every time if he had a choice.


To keep my post a bit crafty here are a few "beady" bits that the grandbabies and I made last weekend.


Some nice little scissor keeps


To be used as gifts for a few birthdays in the coming months.


And to show you that I haven't been completely slacking off here is a cuddly chenille quilt that I made earlier in the week.

Josh and his family are all moved in now and the house is alive with a gorgeous 11 month old keeping us all entertained.  Thanks for all of the well wishes and prayers.  He is in high spirits today so that is wonderful.

Oh and by the way if you find out who stole my weekend away in a flash let me know :)  I seemed to have blinked and it disappeared.

Hugs - Fee XX

I think the same person who stole my weekend, visited you also. They do go by in a flash.
Loved seeing Jack and Dreamer. They do know what is important - warm spot, and snoozing!
Gorgeous cuddly quilt.

Jack certainy looks like a champion. The WA newspaper here in Perth had a competition years ago to send in a kitty pic & all kitties were sent a rosette so naturally I told Brutus it meant he won. His reading isn't good & so he was very proud. His glory days! Tracee xx

Weekend, were has the year gone??
Congratulations Jack on your wins.I must say I would rather sleep in front of the fire than go out to a show.
Nice to have a little one in the house.
