Hi all... just wanted to post something that I learned today.  My friend sent me an email saying that the church to which I donated all those bags of yarn have already made 17 lapghans to give away. 

Good evening! I have been making bunny peeps and bunny baskets

More hats delivered.

I like how the colors pooled in the dresses.  Its hard not being around little kids anymore and not knowing what they like.  Lovies came along after the kids in my life were grown.

I got a few more cat mats made. I am still using up my gifted Homespun. I swear it is multiplying! The blue one kind of looks like it should be for a cat fan of the Dallas Cowboys or the Detroit Lions.  My husband liked it and he rarely even notices what I’m making. I have a scrappy one too but I can’t find it since I washed it.

Here it is!! You can tell that I started with the blue, white and grey of the other one.  Can’t decide if I like matchy or scrappy better. But I still love the homespun as the base. So much softer than 3 strands of regular acrylic.

Yarn has a funny way of reproducing in the night.  I swear I've finished off yarn only to find more skeins that shouldn't be there.

The colors are bright and cheery.  Should brighten the days of the people working with the shelter cats too.

And its the yarn that I really wanted to be rid of and never replace.

Well of course.  I never find the core yarns I use reproducing.  Its always the stuff I'm trying to kill off. If anything those seem to wonder off because I'm always sure I have another skein in that color but when I look.....  :rofl

After my dad had a kidney removed last year, we talked him into getting frozen meals and the boxes were insulated with these panels of shredded fabric. Unable to waste…I made these little beds for feral cats using pillow cases.

Wonderful use!  Love it when you can put things to use instead of putting in the trash.

Love the hats Brenda! I finished 4 Christmas themed cat beds for the adoption centers. I have 2 more started that I hope I can get done over the long weekend.

Tomorrow's the big day!!!

With everyone's help we have 16 boxes of dolls, clothes, and accessories headed out to the high school tomorrow morning.

I'll get a picture of the boxes so you can all see them but I notified the school because this is the first year we won't have room for a hand truck in the car to move the boxes into the school.  That's how much stuff we have.

:ty
