a little bit of sewing

A few weeks ago, P-La sent me some wonderful fabric. So I sat down and and made a few project bags.

I used the skulls with knitting needles on one side and some pirate fabric from my stash on the other side. The fawn ones are for my sil. She gave me the fabric and asked me to make her a few bags. It's taken me this long to blog about them because I mailed the pirate ones to P-La (one for her and one for GGP) and she received them today.

I haven't been doing much knitting. I've been engrossed with my secret project which involves a lot of shopping. I found the perfect xxx but there wasn't enough so I began searching the internet for more. Luckily, I found what I was looking for on eBay - yay. Now that I have enough, I can start working on it.

Ricky (our blonde cat) has got me well trained. He's not a lap cat and he doesn't like to be held but he does like to nap with us. I crawled into bed for a little snooze and he jumped up shortly after I got settled. He snuffled around the edge of the quilt until he found a gap and crawled underneath. I was lying on my side and he walked behind my knees. I could feel him sniffing around. Then I felt his paw scratching at my bottom leg. I moved it a little. He scratched at my leg some more. I moved it so that it formed a large V with my upper leg. He crawled between my legs, curled up, and went to sleep. Is it wrong that I rearranged my legs to his liking? Or is it weird that I knew what he wanted?

considering I do the same when Bartholamew wants my arm out from the blanket in an L shape so he can snuggle at night, no, I don't think it's strange at all :)
