fabric and charms and spider cat.......

First of all, it is Furry Friends Friday! The brainchild of Laurie at Blue Waters...http://buttonslace.blogspot.com She decided to have a show off your pet day on Fridays..This is the second one and I thought I would post, because I think I have the most unusual and precious pets in the world...Today I will feature my new kitten, Joe Bobbin...aka jack rabbit, spider cat and crouching tiger....He hops, he romps and he climbs...just like spiderman with opposing limbs...it is the weirdest thing to see a cat climb that way...The other night I was sleeping and I heard a noise so I turned on the light. There was spider cat at the very top of the quilt hanging above my bed...he was walking along the wall and ceiling edge...strange, I thought I was dreaming but since then I have seen him do it again. He also goes on secret raids in my sewing room...Remember the little fabric tree ornaments? GONE! I had to make new ones, bottlecap pincushions? GONE.....The best thing about him? He loves me as much as I love him and is my little lap kitten....Next time I will write about Thomas who is sitting next to me getting aggravated...He came first after all....



I also got charms back....Oh I love these little beauties and I cant wait to make another necklace....so far I have an all pink one and a black and white one...This next one is going to have all different colors....I wore my pink one to the food and gift fair and five people asked me where they could buy one just like it...Pretty cool stuff and here is a picture of my pretty cool charms.......




Last of all, I have been collecting cowgirl/cowboy fabric for my cowgirl glam trailer redo....the bottom fabric is for the couch, the pin up fabric is going to become pinch pleated draperies with a lining...then I found this panel of old fashioned cowboy hankies...I am going to cut them out and line them, then build a quilt for the bed around them.....probably with forties reproduction fabrics in primary colors....Oh, I have all kinds of ideas!!!! Well, I have to go upstairs and put binding on a quilt......Go see Laurie and tell us all about your pet!!!!

Oh what a sweet kitten - no furry friends this end - just three little bantam chickens. Love the charms you have received and the fabric your have bought - brilliant

He is so cute! I also have a climber, her tale will be next Friday.
What a clever idea to use cowboy/girl fabric! You'll have to share pictures when you get it finished!
Thanks for joining Furry Friends Friday!

I love the cowboy fabrics. I have a whole supply for aprons, but have not seen any of the ones you have. Want to swap? Ha. That hanky panel is the best.

An Leaked Lady GaGa Single was Unsealed this morning with no traces of where it originated from.
Some say that it was discovered in GaGa's Record Label's headquarters.

Yeah, right -- I am still looking through your blog. I guess I have to give in and simply become a follower. ;) Anyway, where did you find this awesome cowgirl fabric?! Maybe I should mention that I am very much into the Old West.

Yeehaw,
Birgit
