Gale never eats people food, but i was eating a leftover sandwich, and got up for a minute and left my plate on the couch, and came back and she had pulled a slice of the roast beef off the bread.

Being the crazy cat person I am, I of course just tore off the visible nommed part, and kept eating Smiley

Here are some pictures of the great toys Morglanc sent me/Gale....

she said a few where store bought, but other than the feathery one on the stick, I'm not sure which other one was!

All out of the packaging and on the floor (which I now realize is very dirty and needs to be vacuumed...)

My favorite is the fishlike one and the little tree.

Gale coming over to investigate....

First choice goes to the red candy one...but I did find the tree on the other end of the living room a few hours later.

Thanks partner!

and here is a quick one of Gale investigating the kitty tunnel prior to packaging

A cat tree is like a cat jungle gym- there are usually different levels with wholes to hang out it, and platforms to sit on, and sometimes toys attached, and they are always covered in carpet. If you google 'cat tree' you'll get all kinds of pictures. I don't have space so I just have one of those circular carpet stools with the hole. She doesn't hang out inside too much, I think because its kinda small, but she loves to sit on top.

My partner budgeiscool said she received from me a few days ago, but hasn't posted pictures yet, but this is the notebook cover I made her. This was the first time I've stitched on black fabric, and I was really happy with how it turned out.

that light plate cover is great!

I received from sarafpool today! She sent a great reusable grocery bag and a soft jersey kitchen towel. I refuse to use plastic, and the bag will will be added to my frequently used collection. I love the outside pocket and the button. I've made quite a few myself and never put an outside pocket on it. It will be great to use at the farmer's market and keep my money in it so I don't have to dig out my quarters under my veggies! The towel will be perfect for me to use as a lap napkin when I eat in the car (because I refuse to get up 10 minutes earlier to eat at home  Grin)

Thanks so much! I'm sorry the pictures are so poor quality.

The bag is lined with very pretty blues. You can also see the cute button!

Thanks again Sara!

Gale loves catnip. At the beginning of summer, I bought a little 4" plant and put it in a ceramic pot outside. She promptly rubbed against it and knocked it over, so I put it in a big wood pot. Then the random neighborhood cats found it and there was only one leaf left on the plant. Then the next day the whole plant, root ball and all, were pulled out.

I gave up on live plants, and now just bring home stems from the farmer's market.

Reaching for a feather....super cute, but not the most slimming position  Tongue

Her newest favorite spot is on top of the recliner chair. I was taking a nap the other day and my boyfriend took a picture. Note her famous "sleep on my face" pose.

Since we are doing pictures....
This is my Gale. She's about 3, and I adopted her when she was about 4 months from a shelter. She's been a fabulous cat...she never scratches, never bites, never destroys stuff (well...she did take down a shelf once). However, she is VERY vocal. She sleeps at the foot of my bed every night, and greets me at the door when I come home.

She's very pretty, however, sometimes not the brightest. She likes to sleep on her face.

I wish I could have more, but she's terrified of other cats. My landlords cat always chases her if she's outside, which is why I only let her out if I'm home and can leave the door open for her to escape back into.

I'm enjoying seeing everyone's pics and hearing the kitties stories. I'm very excited to be a part of this swap!

18  Capri-Sun bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by santacruzsugar on: July 05, 2009 10:22:17 PM

I know using Capri Sun pouches is not original, but I love my new bag.

Some background: I work as a recycling coordinator for the garbage company, which means I go to schools and businesses and teach them how to recycle. I needed a bag to carry my paperwork, stickers, other outreach supplies, and I wanted something that was all recycled material.

And for the record, I hate capri-suns and their fake juice and the non-recyclable mylar packaging. But apparently kids love them, and I used to work at an environmental school. The kids would always bring them in their lunches, so I rescued them from the landfill, knowing that one day I would use them.

The straps are bright blue suede from the thrift store. Its amazing what some people will give away! I got almost a yard for only $1.50! I had to refrain from buying the bright green...

The white is linen from a tablecloth (also thrift store).

The pockets are constructed from fabric from an old dog bed cover. I used to work at a dog boutique store and a customer brought it in to get a replacement because their dog chewed the zipper. It was going to get thrown away, but I saved it, washed it, and used it!

For the interfacing, I used an old navajo kitchen rug that was in my house when I moved in over a year ago. It sat in a corner where I kept meaning to take it to Goodwill. But yes, I found a use for it!

The only new things are the snap, and the thread.

Thanks for looking!

19  finally something that fits! a skirt from a lazy sewer... in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by santacruzsugar on: March 08, 2009 09:06:18 PM
To start off with, I'd like to tell you that I'm the laziest sewer EVER! I never cut the little notches out when cutting the pattern, I use more-or-less standard seam allowances, and I have never, ever measured a hem.

Which would explain why I have a crap load of half-assed items in my closet that don't fit me. I needed something nice to ware to a bridal shower, and after spending a bunch of money on yards of Alexander Henry fabric, I decided to actually try and make this one work. I was on a time crunch and had no additional money to buy something else if it didn't work out. So I really tried my hardest. I took time to iron all the seams flat, I measured the seam on both steps, I even re-did the zipper when my first try was crooked.

I'm glad I took the effort. I love it, it fits me, and I will try my hardest never to go back to my lazy ways. 

I used McCalls pattern number 5432. Please let me know what you think!

20  And I call this a Carpet Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by santacruzsugar on: January 22, 2009 08:56:43 PM
This is the latest carpet bag I made. I call it a carpet bag because its huge and it reminds me of those junior high history lessons when we learned about people who where "carpet baggers" after the civil war and came with their giant bags ready to pillage and plunder. This bag is not, however made out of carpet (just as a disclaimer)  Tongue.

This is for my boyfriend's Mom as his belated XMas gift. He picked the fabric out and everything!

Its lined, with multiple pockets and a magnetic snap. The handles are cording threaded inside a fabric tube (pain in the ass to do).

And its very large!!!

Thanks for looking!
