The Hope Tea Cat found a new home in Southern Indiana.

The person that adopted the kitty cat said her apartment complex doesn't allow cats, so she adopted a stuffed cat with a pink heart nose and a little green checkered dress.

Safe travels little bear.

I can't remember the last time I slept so long, still I crumple my hand over my face with high anxiety. I keep cupping my mouth and nose with my hands teepee-style. My eyes dart around the room as if I'm looking for somewhere to go, yet I feel better than I have in days.

My shoulders tingle with anxiety and pain. I place my hand open palm on the center of my chest and rock. I can feel tears want to come, but they don't. I feel wild. I feel better than I have in days, yet everything I just described I've done since I started trying to write this entry, who knows how long ago.

This is a nothing entry....something to toss up here so I can stamp time saying I was here.

So we're here, hanging around and its time for a cup of hot chocolate. Snow goes to get the cups and says, "You don't have any hot chocolate. Faith, it's empty."
Me - "What, no, there should be a little bit left.
Snow - "No"
she said admittedly, "It's empty."
I was like, "No! Why? Whyyyy?"

Turns out I had no hot chocolate, twas true. It was empty. There was nothing but a spoon with trace particles of multisyllabic chemicals, synthetic fillers and artificial coloring. The world had dealt its last blow, a sucker punch!

I haven't made a softy in a good long time. I've made pillows and bags but this is the first softy in a while. I call her Annie, she's a tree frog instead of a water frog like the others in my personal collection of hand sewn frogs and ducks.

As usual, there was no pattern. I winged it. The day I created her I needed some small project that could be done right then and there and finished that very day. I needed to see results, any kind of results and so Annie came to be.

I like to make little frogs.

 

At 7 inches small this little kitten with big baby blue eyes sits perfectly on top of books and dried flowers. She wears an oversized, removable pink ribbon and has tiny little gray whiskers. This little one is completely hand made, hand painted and is made of almost 100% recycled materials including her stuffing and the ribbon.  ...continue reading "Plush kitten with big baby blue eyes"
