Ok, so I'm showing you too many pictures. But isn't she pretty?
I'm loving her!
I ordered a cat bead from Melanie of Moonraker Lampwerks and asked Melanie if she could make it look like Mia. She makes such cute beads -- she even has cute full body doggie beads. So I asked her if she could make a full body cat bead of Mia in addition to the cat face bead. Melanie told me that the tail of a cat bead is too weak for any rough treatment, which is why she doesn't make the full body cat beads anymore. But I promised I would take good care of it. Well, Melanie did a great job! I have two cute Mia beads now!
Melanie caught all the little black spots all over Mia perfectly!
The Mia cathead bead fob is now on my scissors. Love it! And the full body bead is proudly on display. Thanks again, Melanie!
I also won a few prizes recently. The nice ladies from In the Company of Friends had a giveaway on their blog and I was one of the winners. I won this wonderful little booklet.
Thank you so much, Julie and Becky! I love it!
Cecelia of the Threadgatherer (who makes those yummy silks and ribbons and such) had a giveaway for some chocolate/brown Silk 'n Colors fibers and some of her German Chocolate Bath Salts. And I won!
Aren't the silks yummy looking? And the bath salts smell good enough to eat! Thank you so much, Cecelia!
And I won a wonderful giveaway from Deborah of Cranberry Samplings! Just look at what I won!
I so enjoyed opening all the packages!
This is the main attraction.
How gorgeous is that! And inside is
Such beautiful lining in the box! And look at all the sewing goodies Deborah gave me too! Plus this
Look at the gorgeous pin pillow! You can see some of the beautiful buttons that Deborah included too!
Thank you so much for my lovely prize, Deborah! I just love it!
Last but not least, guess who turned one year old yesterday? Yup, our little Mia is no longer a kitten. Here is a pic of our Mia when we first got her.
She was so tiny, she could fit into a kleenex box! And now look at her.
Definitely larger than a kleenex box! lol! I can't believe she's a year old! I have to stop calling her baby cat.
Mia definitely has a thing about the girl child. She doesn't know what to think of her. She will hiss at her, even scratch her or growl at her. But she will also settle down and sleep on her. Very puzzling. I have the feeling she vaguely remembers the girl child from when she was tiny, so is confused about who this person is. Poor girl child. Poor Mia.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week! Oh, and congrats to Rafael Nadal for equalling my idol Bjorn Borg's record of 6 French Open titles yesterday. Congrats also to Li Na (Li is her last name, you sports broadcasters, you!) for being the first Chinese woman to win a grand slam title. Wimbledon is looking to be a good one this year!
Happy birthday, Mia!
