No stitching at all -- but for a very good reason. As of Tuesday, July27, we have a new family member. Meet Mia.
She's a little over 8 weeks old now. We got her after a certain boy child fell in love with her while babysitting her for a friend.
See how small she is? :D Anyway, the boy child called me (this was the day before we welcomed her to our family) and asked in his boy child way (rather noncommittally but obviously totally smitten) if we could have a certain little kitten. And so here she is. She has definitely stolen everyone's hearts.
The boy child's heart.
The girl child's heart.
The father type's heart (although Mia was a bit doubtful about this loud, boisterous fellow at first).
And of course my heart. (Please ignore the frowsy woman in the picture.)
But of course, having a kitten in the house is like having a baby in the house. lol! I am hoping to attempt some stitching soon. But in the meantime, Samantha P and I have been spending lots of time with each other while a certain kitten sleeps on my lap.
Which reminds me. "Mr. Rosenblum Dreams in English" by Natasha Solomons. Good read. I promise. It might start a bit slowly, but it's worth the read.
Now that I've bored you all with our new family member (who is currently sleeping on my lap and thankfully no longer helping with this blog post), let me see what greatest hit I can come up with for your entertainment. Ah yes, I'd promised the other Merry Cox piece, hadn't I?
This piece is what prompted me to want to take classes with Merry Cox. I just love this one so much! I hope you don't mind a bunch of pictures.
But I do think it's so pretty!
In other news, the girl child is doing the last days of her internship this week. It sure seems to have gone fast to me. I think she's enjoyed it, but is tired of the commute -- altogether it takes her about 2 hours one way.
Mia is keeping us busy day and (parts of the) night. I was hoping she would grow out of the early risings and the periodic nighttime wakings, but the father type thinks that cats are a bit nocturnal and she'll keep on doing it. Is this true? I'd love to hear from you cat people out there. She loves to sleep with someone (so far she's slept with 3 out of 4 of us), which is a problem since once she wakes up, she thinks the person she's sleeping with should wake up too. lol! She is such a sweetie though. And very smart, IMO. Can you tell I'm in love?
Well, thanks for stopping by and saying hi as always. I will do my best to keep you entertained with my greatest hits while the stitchy stoppage continues. Here's hoping Mia lets me stitch once in a while!
