Before I get too busy to even stop and wish my friends a Merry Little Christmas, I thought I would go ahead and do it. So, Merry Christmas to all of you! Whoever you are, I hope you will leave a comment! I know I have been bad at responding to comments lately, partly because I don't get notified any more when one is made and partly because I have been so busy.
Lately, I have been making some kitty presents! I got the idea and pattern from Katie at katiemaytoo.blogspot.com. She made one of these super cute fishes for all of her known cat owners. And she sent me the pattern! (Not the first time she has sent me a pattern). Thanks, Katie!
I only have 3 cats in my extended family (My sister has 2 and DS#1 has 1), so the 3 smaller fish are for them. I made a larger fish just to see how it would look. The large one is 12 1/2' long. They were a lot of fun to make and the sewing student that I have decided to make one for her cat (I had given her 3 options). It was fun picking out fabrics to use. The fish have some catnip in them.
I had mentioned that I was a vendor in various craft shows and that is done for the year now. Yea!! Actually, this is the best year that I have had so far. Here are a few pictures from the last show. It was held at the Yamhill Valley Heritage Center Museum which is not far from my home.
