New kitties and a fabby thrifty find.

This week I am doing quite well, 2 posts already.
Today I have been listing some new kitties, Mr Betty let me use his super duper computer. He was huffing quite a bit though. He huffed even more when I used some of his 'big envelopes'.

I have now moved away from Mr Bettys office area and I am safely tucked away in my favourite corner.
I have been attempting to make some new kitties so that they resemble certain breeds.
Here are my Orientals/ Siamese.

I have used rather a lot of artistic license with these but I quite like their little faces.
So that's Penny, Susie and Priscilla.

I also made some tabbies.

Jinty and Mimi, I may do some more little shawls in the future. I quite enjoyed making this one and it is a good use of some of my button collection.....I've gotta do summat with them!

And I felt the need to do a boy cat.

This is Freddie and he is a British Short Hair and I think they call them Blues?
My mum has been going for it on the kitty jumper knitting and is now making all sorts. Freddie has a cool hoodie and she has been making many variations of girl kitty sweaters. My mum is a legend!

I have listed the above kitties here along with a few more. Have a mooch and tell me what you think :)

Today I just 'popped' into my favouritist local charity shop and I found this.

I absolutely love this. It is a 1975 crown ducal coffe percolator.
Will I percolate in it? Probably not. I shall just gaze at it.
I am mad for Folk design at the moment and I will be looking out for more of it on my travels.
I paid £8 for it but I think that is ok for something that really makes you smile.

Tonight I will mostly be eating Chilli chicken and Fattoush, playing Cadoo and then watching Salvage Hunters.

Thanks for reading, tomorrow I am going on an adventure with Mrs Teawagon so there is no doubt in my mind that there will be plenty to blog about. X

Posted using IPad and half my brain.

  7. Ooohh, so happy to have found your blog and these amazing little kitties, love them, cutalicious! Buy that perculator its so cool, the naive pattern is just right now. I have a similar one and use it often. I love vintage and retro, my latest project being a fibro beach house renovation. I do hope you pop on over and say hello.
