Swallowed Up - Stressed - Loving It!

I've started the preparations for two marathon sessions of sewing for shows: The Star City Cat Fancy show is the weekend of July 7-8 here in Roanoke, and then there's the National Capital Cat Show in Northern Virginia in September. I'm finishing up orders (as quickly as I can!) and thinking, planning, pulling fabrics in between...Nana Sadie Rose is getting ready to go on the road again!

So here, a new bag. I've done many more, but they've all been fabrics you've seen before (no two bags are identical, as I always change SOMETHING) but this is brand new...

Calico Cat Mera in red, black, and white.

To sustain myself in sewing madness, I have discovered these (yes, I'm no doubt late again to the party!)

This is either a terrible thing, or the start of a beautiful relationship - I'm not sure which!

The "end of year" at work I'm reeling by day, stitching by night...

Also - if you haven't yet signed up for the waiting list for Ravelry? OH MY. I got in on Friday. And I'm having a blast - it's all there on the site. Go check it out - and for heavens' sake - sign up!! (I think I was on the list a couple of months - but you know how time gets away from me...)

I had a little time while I watched the this got finished - the second I've made from Dishcloths From the Heart. Oh what are you waiting for? This is a delightful book of heart patterned dishcloths!

Oh-oh. Chaos warned me about this...MOM!

Love that new fabric too! When finances are in line as if that ever happens) I'll be in need of a new bag. Probably your sock pouch! I wish you hadn't told me about those M&M's!!! Now I have to go look for some for my chocolate stash!

Love the red kitties!

Dart chocolate M&Ms. Found those not too long ago. It's a lovely relationship, but not sure it's one I should be having. :-)

And I so, so, so want to get on Ravelry. I signed up awhile back, but I haven't been invited in yet. I keep waiting and hoping and eating M&Ms. Maybe they will let me in to save me from myself?

Love the new kitty tote, Sallee! Didn't need to know about the M&Ms :o)

Love the calico cat bag! I've been actively avoiding those new M&Ms, so I am going to pretend you didn't say they were good.

I don't think The Meezer is too thrilled with the whole modeling thing. You covered up her beautiful coat!

Those are cute red kitties.

And the real kitty qualifies for "Stuff on Your Cat."

I finally got in to Ravelry. It's great, but I need time to work on it!

Such cute fabric! And doesn't Meezer look adorable modeling your cloth? :)

Enjoy Ravelry...I'm still waiting to get in.

Love the new bag. One day I'll own my very own Nana Sadie Rose bag. One day!

Dark chocolate M&M's? Augh! So far I haven't seen them in Hawaii so maybe they haven't gotten here yet. Here's hoping!

Your Siamese kind of looks like she is wearing a little blue saddle. Thanks for the nice comment. My knitting supervisor says, "Quit fooling around and finish those socks already..."

Love the bag! Fabric is Fabu!. Mezzer reminds me so much of a Siamese I had as a teenager. His name was Chow Ming. Beautiful Cat!

I enjoy dishcloths beacause they are quick knits. Love the color and hearts.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
