i love the bad!!!!!!! where did you get that pattern? not like i know how to use one but i would sure try for that! also if anyone has any tips on using a pattern let me know.

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you on this.  It is Simplicity 3776.  The "bag" is actually a bucket and the two smaller sizes work just fine.  If you make the biggest one, definitely use a stiffer interfacing if you want it to stand up.

I received a truly unbelievable package from mouser882 today!

There are lots of pictures because she sent lots of cool stuff, so in the interest of not using up more than my fair share of space, I'll just tell you that she sent an adorable note with a photo of her cat Penelope, some homemade soap as an extra for me, and a bag of our kitties favorite treats!  

There were lots of small gifts wrapped in tissue and ribbon in the box.  It looked like Christmas!

Inside were all of these wonderful one-of-a-kind playthings for my kitties and grandkitties!

Can you believe the crocheted goodness?

That green rectangular one "crinkles", Murphy is going to claim that one for sure!

Those green t-shirt knit ones were the ones Scruffy zoomed in on instantly.  She has taken them from the pile and believe me, they won't be shared.


And here she is giving me angry eyes when I tried to take them to see if she wanted to play with something else for a while:

I'll see the grandkitties, Murphy and Micia, this weekend and they can get theirs then.

Thanks so much mouser882 and Penelope!

Cute action shots!!  It's those that really make this gallery special besides the wonderful crafting talents.

I can't believe that I am only NOW getting to the gallery. I stumbled across Gamemom's post in the recent with pics section! Hahahha.

My package has not traveled far yet from the tracking number but it will soon i'm sure...

too bad calgary wasn't closer to Sydney Smiley  hahhahahha. I love what I've seen so far. I want to get some feathers to play with my cats with. I'm more excited to see what my partner is going to think of some of the other special gifts Cheesy

I love personal swapping! PM me!!!!

Feel like some shopping?

Hooray! I'm very glad she liked everything - I remembered you said she likes green toys so I was a little worried that they wouldn't be bright green enough. I hope the other kitties like the not-yet-claimed toys!
Scruffy is such a cutie. My dad recently inherited a cat (from my grandparents) and he renamed it Scruffy from Simon.
The fish's tail is supposed to be crinkley too but I'm not sure the fabric lets it be like the crocheted one does. And thank you for all the praise! I love how much neater tissue paper and ribbon makes a bunch of stuff look.

Wow everyone and their babies are getting such wonderful toys !!
We received yesterday evening and all of us were so happy !! Thank you so much Psychonmemphis !! You really spoiled us all.

First of all the LOAD of toys she sent, we are fostering right now so have EIGHT cats in our home. There is always fights over toys and now we for sure have enough to go around. Smiley

How cute is that mustache? All of them are handmade and filled with some mega strong cat nip. ALL of the cats came out to see the package once it was opened..it called to them.

Of course Hurricane is the bitch of the bunch so no one was allowed to play with them until she had sat on them, rolled on them and drooled on them. She really is a mean cat, to all of the other cats as well as us. I found her in a parking lot and she is pretty much half feral. : /  We keep her and love her because no one else will have her. LOL

Ahh finally, after she knocked them off of the stool one by one all of the other babies got to find their favorite toy. LOL I wish I would have gotten a picture with all eight playing but they spread out pretty quickly.

Then for my special surprise....I lost my best friend several months back. My Chakra kitty was 15 and it just took a huge part of my heart when she left. Psychonmemphis embroidered her on a pretty piece of cloth and then framed it for me. So so so sweet!! It is hanging in my art room now and makes me very happy.

We also got a much needed box of kitty wipes and I got a wonderful extra, a tiny owl macram bead !!
Please excuse the dinner plate and crooked picture. It was dinner time and I had eight cats and two children "helping" me. Wink

She sent an extra drawing of Chakra as well and my oldest daughter took it right after this picture was taken. Thank you again so much, you really put a lot of thought and work into this package for me and it is so very appreciated.

My turn! tiffie1023 sent a box full of goodies. Without further ado...

Disney: Moooom. Open this box. I don't have thumbs.

First, some cute frames n art for the human.

This is defective. It doesn't have a picture of me in it. plz fix.

I thiiiink these are thrift shopped. I HOPE! We talked about our mutual love of thriftshopping. And if she cross-stitched this message, I am like permanently in her Craftster debt!

Some adorable yarn balls that are hollow. I think. They're really lightweight.

Do I look like I fetch? You wanted it, you shouldn't have thrown it.

A crazy of catnip toys! (Yes, I just made up that collective noun.) Felt with adorable little prints on them... dice... mice.... robots.

Oh, now THIS is the good stuff. This is relevant to my interests.

Yeah, fine. Here's one where I'm not spazzing. But my whiskers are still twitchin.

Somebody totally did her research on me. Check it out: a nepetalactone molecule necklace!!! SCORE. It totally rocks. I'm wearing it tomorrow to show off at the office.

Enough with the boring human stuff. I see more stuff in here for ME!

A fluffy stick toy! I totally love me some fluffy *nompf*.
(note the amount the cat is spoiled in the background)

And more fluffy stuff to craft with!
Dis, can I take some of this to Rowling, our little foster?

Well, if you must. Stinky Kitten can have this one.

Oh hai. I'm stinky foster kitten, Rowling.

Dis ball is as big as mah head!

Oooh. This catnip toy is totally nommy.

Thanks, Miss Tiffie, for all our awesome stuffs!
