When the mail came today, Eric came inside and said “you’re becoming very worldly, you got something from France”, and I clapped my hands because I knew it had to be my Crazy Cat Lady Exchange! It turns out that Isabelle in Paris was the one stitching for me, and she and Violette put together some amazing gifts. Violette sent the three mice for Hamlet, Othello and Romeo. The little yarn kitty and the pillow were for me! I love the little kitty, it is so sweet and has the daintiest little whiskers. (And you know the yarn obsession I am having lately!). Isabelle also stitched this gorgeous pillow. I have so been wanting to see one of these in person, to figure out how to make one, because they are just so cute. She used kitty fabric on the front and back and on the covered buttons, and the inside is muslin (which I love the feel of). The design she stitched was a freebie from Stitchy Kitty and Isabelle says she stitched it with hand-dyed fibers to soften the hues. I just love this! She and Violette sent along a cute card as well.
Romeo and Hamlet had a ball with those little mice this afternoon. I have fished them out from under the couches several times. I am too slow to get an action shot though, so here they are contemplating their new toys.
And here is Othello…this is about as active as he gets. I can’t believe I actually got pretty decent photos of all three of them in the same day! Thank you again, Isabelle and Violette…Hamlet, Othello, Romeo and I appreciate it!
Photos of my Just Nan RR to come – hopefully tomorrow I should be done with it!
I am grateful for friends in Paris.
