I'm sewing, really I am!

Actually, I've been sewing up a storm, but I don't have any pictures yet!

I have finally come up with a really great wine bag pattern and I have to say that I'm very happy with it. I ran it past Hans, who is a very honest critiquer (sp??) and he likes it too. Anyway, it's my original design and each bag I've made has my 'Knotty Cat Designs' label on it.

I also have my '3 bags in one' purse concept that needs to be made in some more fun fabric patterns, but I'll get there!

I had to take a generic printer cartridge back to an Office Depot store today because it wouldn't work in my Dell printer (go figure) and I nearly fainted with delight when the lady who waited on me went on and on over my '3 in one purse' that I mentioned above. And yesterday two ladies commented on my St. Patrick's Day purse!!!

I kid you not!

I love that lime green. That purse will look so cute with either a white summer dress, or some jeans, or even the shirt that Sally Stitch is wearing in this picture.

I also got a message from Boody Babies, and she wanted to let me know that she'd received some inquiries about her labels, after I posted about the labels that I had her design for me. So whoever contacted her, I hope you have the same success that I did. I'm very happy with my labels and I'll try to post some pictures of them in use soon!

So here is a picture of my Chlorox kitty in her basket, in the SUV, for the hour and a half trip to The Big City.

Just checking things out.

Taking a small break between gutteral screams and moans.

Once I let her loose in the apartment, she disappeared. If I didn't know any better I would have thought that somehow she'd actually escaped.

But like I said, I knew better.

Look closely at this picture of my sewing area.

Like down in the very lower left corner.

That white thing is my sewing machine cover.

And right now it's a cat cover.

See the cat tail sticking out from underneath?

It took me about a half hour to discover this.

Here she is under the buffet.

But while it may have taken her a month to get used to Baby Girl's apartment, it only took her a day to get used to our apartment.

Chlorox enjoys the futon with her book (and a cup of coffee)

Chlorox enjoys the dining room kitchen entryway.

This king size bed is very comfy, according to Chlorox and her friends.

And doesn't someone look ever so decorative, sitting next to Laura's sewing machine.

And just in case we were really worried that Chlorox wasn't adjusting to apartment life, it was brought home to us in a very real way that Chlorox was indeed adjusting to apartment life, when in the middle of dinner in our very tiny kitchen, we could hear her thoroughly scratching and covering her business in her litter box.

Because unfortunately the kitchen is the only place where there is room for a litter box!

Oh, life in The Big City with Hans and Chlorox.

I'm sure it will only get more interesting!

How fun for you about the purse. "Oh, go ON!"

The picture of the cat under the sewing machine cover is classic. I have a picture from when Winston was a puppy (yes, occasionally I take a picture or two of him) where he's sleeping on the floor among all of his toys, and you really have to look to figure out which one is the puppy.

Winston has toys? Who would have guessed!
