Dual Purpose

When we moved Mom to my sisters, I took possession of her once used craft basket. I thought is was basically filled with some knitting and some pillow top projects she once worked on. When I went through the basket today, much to my surprise I found lots of lace and trims, muslin and other fabrics perfect for backing my crazy quilting, padding, and a couple crochet books from way back. As a lace hoarder, yes, hoarder, I was quite pleased with my find. So I carefully folded my acquisitions and put them back into the basket. I also had a chair cushion I was going to put in the humane society bazaar box, but decided to put it on top to protect the contents, and also give Toby a new place to nap! Perfect! Of course it's up to him whether he wants to share his new bed with his brothers and sister, the same as me, if I decide to share my stash with my sisters! I guess.

That is an ideal nap spot for your kitty cat. I love cats with that color and markings, a ginger cat.

Toby looks so sweet! Wish I could have a cat again but alas they would perish out here with all the coyote's. It's always fun to find a new surprise, and what better than lace! How's Mom doing now? Hugs Pearl

What a darling picture. Hard to believe that this guy was once wild! Diane

Toby reminds me of one of my late, great Spanky. Such a sweet photo. We don't have any cats right now; the dog and the chickens provide enough entertainment! Have a blessed and bountiful evening.

Hi Laurie,

I keep trying to reply to your message but they keep bouncing back to me.

Just wanted to say thanks for the sweet comments that you leave on my blog. I'm glad you like my bunny pillow and that you enjoyed my ORTS idea!

I'm doing okay and so is mom. She's busy running her sewing machine making door pillows for the shop!

Hope all is well with you!

Hugs, Pam

Sweet photo. It is so good that you are able to have your mother's basket and her stash of things that you can now use!
