SNOOPY FINISHED, ELEPHANT ON THE WAY.


When we redecorated our Lounge we bought the two large wicker chairs to put in the window so that we could do our crochet, read etc in the light.
We didn't bargain on the fact that we would not be able to use them that often, although we should have known.
Everytime we go in to sit down they are occupied but a couple of furry friends and being the 
 complete softies that we are we don't like to move them.


It occured to us that we should maybe take a leaf out of the Germans book, those that go on holiday it the various resorts, and throw a couple towels over the chairs to reserve them. ha ha
Do you think this might work? lol.  Probably not.

This morning we decided to spend the morning doing a bit of crochet and luckily both chairs were free.
   Tom has just started and Elephant and I am still trying to finish my 'Pink Champagne' scrumble.


 As he's working with grey the magnifier has come out of the closet, but it works a treat.


 Here's the Elephant that he's just starting and below is Snoopy just completed



I should also mention that the plastic that we pinned around the sofa on the 14th Dec works a treat and the cats have not attempted to claw it.

ALMOST THERE, PINK CHAMPAGNE SCRUMBLE PICTURE.





I finally finished the basic background of the 'Pink Champagne' Scrumble picture.
I now have to do the embellishments.
Still more gold grapes to make and beads etc to add.
This is the best bit.

OVERDRIVE APP, BORROW BOOKS AND AUDIO ONLINE.



I've just discovered the app Overdrive, this can be downloaded onto ipad, iphone and other devices to enable you to borrow books and Audio books for free from your local library.
They can be loaned for 7, 14, and 21 days.

Maybe you already know of this but I have only just found it and am really enjoying listening to audio books on it.

All you need is your local Library no and pin no to enable you to use it.  go take a look I think its great.

IT'S A HARD LIFE


Tom had a nap this afternoon (as we both do) and left the fleece lying around, guess who decided that it was a great place to take herself a nap.  Princess.
Sorry about the legs in the background, they were rifling around in the drawer after the sweets. ha ha.

I wanted to push the hoover around in this room, but you've guessed it......I didn't in case I disturbed her.

 

LATEST CALENDER QUOTE.

Cats are intended to teach us that not everything in nature has a purpose.

As I will not be seeing them all until later in the day tomorrow, they gave me the cake early.
Shame the hook broke but we stuck it back together and its still wonderful.
Do you think they know about my crocheting  ?

Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.

 This was sent to me by a friend, I just had to share it with you...
 
DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM? -  I LIKE THIS GIRL!!!
 

This happened at a New York Airport. This is hilarious. I wish I had the guts of this girl.  An award should go to the United Airlines gate agent in New York for being smart and funny, while making her point, when confronted with a passenger who probably deserved to fly as cargo.  For all of you out there who have had to deal with an irate customer, this one is for you.
 
A crowded United Airlines flight was cancelled.

A single agent was rebooking a long line of inconvenienced travellers.
 
Suddenly, an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped his ticket on the counter and said, "I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST CLASS."
 
The agent replied, "I'm sorry, sir. I'll be happy to try to help you, but I've got to help these folks first; and then I'm sure we'll be able to work something out."
 
The passenger was unimpressed.

He asked loudly, so that the passengers behind him could hear, "DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?"
 
Without hesitating, the agent smiled and grabbed her public address microphone.

"May I have your attention, please?", she began, her voice heard clearly throughout the terminal. "We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS.  If anyone can help him with his identity, please come to Gate 14."

  With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the United Airlines agent, gritted his teeth, and said, "F*** You!"

  Without flinching, she smiled and said, "I'm sorry sir, you'll have to get in line for that, too."
 
Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.

MY WORK MAY BE GOING INTO A MAGAZINE,


I can now share with you something that has been going on in the background for a while.

Pam Kellog http://kittyandmedesigns.blogspot.co.uk/ publishes a quarterly Crazy Quilting Magazine
and has contacted me and asked if she can use some of my work.

Of course I said yes, and I'm over the moon.

It all makes it worth while, and to know that it is seen as worthy of putting in a magazine is all that I could want.

I'll let you know if and when it is used.


In the meantime enjoy another three quotes from my cat calender.
