Crazy Exchange for Cynthia

I heard the good news today that Cynthia has received my little Crazy Exchange - this is a fun little group that runs differently from most of the other blogger exchanges.... and is always open to new members if you want to join... I sent this little fob to Cynthia, a group member who lives a mere 20-30 minutes away from me - I couldn't resist choosing my neighbor as my next exchange person! Since Autumn has just started here in the northern hemisphere, I chose this for her:


Fall Fob

Dirty Belfast Linen, GAST, Weeks Dye Works Floss


I spent a while today starting my return exchange for Susan, who sent me a sweet quilted needlebook for Crazy Exchange (see August 27, 2007 entry in my blog). Then I found time to do what I always do on Saturdays - add some more to the forest (And A Forest Grew). I was able to add a few smaller motifs and another good sized tree (maybe a peach or grapefruit tree?). I also think I may have found a motif or two on this tonight that I can add to the landscaping on Bine's RR :-) I am getting closer and closer now to that right side edge, which is the end of the sampler!

There have been a few questions of late asking how Angus is doing. He appears to continue to do well! He was able to eat a bit of dry kibble tonight (the other cats whine for it, so sometimes we give in and put a little out, despite the fact that the vet does not want Angus eating it - he adores it so much!!). We do try to keep that to an extreme minimum, but as a result, he is a happy cat right now. Here is he is resting, as usual, with his catnip bag nearby. He is right here by my computer just now as I took the photo.

Stitched on today: Started return exchange project for Susan (Crazy Exchange) and And A Forest Grew

It wouldn't seem possible that Angus could look any better than he does now. :D Hard to believe what a sick little kitty he was!!

Forest is looking great, and what a fun fob. The colors are perfect for this time of year (the trees here in MI are really beginning to turn also). Glad to hear that Angus continues to do well, he looks very comfy and happy in your picture.

Love that fob!

Jenn said...

What perfect colors for fall Carol.

We have the same problem with misha. she can't eat cans of store bought cat food but, she HATES what we have to give her from the vet...so every once in a while we sneek her a store can. You have to keep them happy. :) Glad to see Angus and to hear he's doing well.
