Crazy as a Loom

Change of heart

Today was a productive day for me......I had ten purses woven, and they were stacked up giving me the evil eye......so I threw myself into it.......sewed them all together, straps and all. The ones on the bottom rung are ones I made a couple of weeks ago....the top two rungs are today.


Here they are up close.....very simple, but very sturdy. They hold a lot.
I guess it is very apparent that I LOVE color.....can't get enough of it.
Do you like them??

OK......I had it all planned....the kitten was going today. My oldest daughter was giving her a ride as far as her house, and the new owner was picking her up.
That was how it was supposed to go.
Then Tammy came in early this morning. You all know Tammy? She has been my apprentice since last November, and she has become quite the weaver, and indispensable as well.
She had emailed me last night, begging please, don't send "Jinx" away.....her name for the kitten.
Now let me preface this by saying that I have to chase the kitty around just to pick her up, and she is very sweet, but not inclined to stay with me long, nor does she throw herself all over me.
So turn up your volume, and watch this little video....it had gone on for 5 minutes before I got my flip camera out.




This kitten knows its MOMMA when she sees her.
And after I watched it, there is no way I could follow through with the aforementioned plan.
So Jinx is staying, her mom is weaving rugs to pay for her keep, and when she moves in October, to a pet friendly environment, she is taking her home.
So see, just when you think you have it all figured out.......imagine that.

First the bags are beautiful......good job!

And it is best not to mess with separating a relationship that is meant to be! Cat love, who can explain it?!
