Appeased for the Present.....

No pun intended....But Tessie is appeased. Maybe I should have said with the presents.

Since I am not showing you Kim's chair for now, I will have to show you my payment for taking care of April's cat and chickens next week....Yes, she is a trusting soul and paid me in advance. She didn't really have to pay me at all. I enjoy visiting her animals when she is away.

We met for coffee and a bit of running around this morning and ended up at the UNICEF Store. It is one of our favorite places to at least browse, and sometimes buy.

I picked up this wooden box from Thailand and showed it to her. She told me that she would buy it as payment for chicken sitting. All that and eggs too!

When I got home, Tessie grabbed the stump and immediately declared it a new table for her townhouse....Little did she know that, that was exactly what I had in mind.

Something to assuage her feelings for not working on her townhouse was my intention. She was doubly excited when she found out that the top swiveled to one side and she could hide things inside.

Everything that I took out of the shopping bag went straight into her hot little hands.

Maybe I should say she grabbed it all....I am trying hard to be nice.

She also grabbed a magnifying glass from Tibet. That one, I am going to take away from her. It is meant to be a necklace for me.

She held it up in front of her face and said, "See how much bigger I get when I hold this in front of me? I'm almost as big as Zar!" Her fuzzy way of looking at things never ceases to amaze me...

After I parted with April, I stopped at a quilt shop that was on my way home.

I found three fat quarters of fabric that will do for mini use. Guess who has custody of them now? Yup....

You may have to poke the photo and make it bigger to see. The top one is actually printed with a mini basket weave. I thought that it might be fun to make some boxes and cover them with this print.

The middle one is for a shirt for Zar, if I can get it away from you know who....

The third one is just a fun one and I liked the colors....Unfortunately, Tessie does too.

So much for my....er I mean Tessie's presents. She is standing guard over everything right now. Sooner or later she will tire of the whole thing. Then I can hide everything but the new table...

Just a reminder.....There are only today and tomorrow left for you to vote for Reader's Choice Miniature Blog. Then Tessie will stop carrying that sign around, I hope. Thank you for all that you have done so far.... Only two days to go.

See you tomorrow.

The tree stump table looks great! What will Tessie hide inside? PEZ? Diamonds?

Casey, what a great find with that little stump! I have never been able to come across such great finds as I see others do. =)

The stump, magnifying glass and fabrics are ALL very cool! I really especially like that third fabric..have you thought about what you will make with it?

Ahem..do you EVER make anything for YOURSELF? Tell Tessie I said it's time she made YOU something *glowers*. You are a very special WitchMom.
