Not For Laundry...

 Everybody knows that, if the cat gets there first, you don't have a chance of using whatever you brought home for it's intended purpose...

So much for the laundry hamper that I found at Walmart this morning... Nice.  Light weight.  And full of CAT!

As soon as I put it on the floor, I knew that it was a mistake...

Kota has a new place to sleep and I have NO laundry basket!

This seems to happen with cats.  No matter the size.

Tessie lost her thread chest also.  This is by Pam Boorum.  She does beautiful woodwork. I always wanted one of these in real life size... However, they are an outrageous price these days.  So I am happy with this one.
 The last thing I found at the show was some fabric to play with.

The blue on the bottom is a piece of a silk sari...

The two pieces on top don't photograph too well.  They are hand dyed silk velvet.  Very pretty in real life.  Not so much in this photo.

I am going to try using the latter two for beaded cuffs.  I think that they will look a lot better, once they are covered with bead work.

Unfortunately, I can't find the cards for the people that sold these to me. Sorry about that.

And I suppose that you are wondering where Tessie is this morning? 

I think that discretion is the better part of valor.

I am not going to wake her up.  She would bite my head off.

It certainly is quiet this morning... I hope that it stays that way...

See you tomorrow.

I Adore your little sewing chest Casey and I am interested in seeing how you will be transforming the fabrics too, especially the velvets.
I had to go back and look at the pottery from the HAIRY POTTER and I Admire your restraint. Pottery is always difficult to resist , especially his! Enjoy! :D

Hi Casey. How is the Bunny Hutch coming along? I have a few special animals that
might appreciate one like that.
