me, Mavis

I knit. I garden. I co-manage an eclectic shop. I sometimes work in real estate. I sometimes swing a hammer. I always volunteer in my community. I live in an old house with my nice family of one husband and three beastly cats. I have great friends. These are the things that matter to me, Mavis.

Two New Finished Objects!

So you thought you knew about ALL of the half- and even less- finished objects that I have started and haphazardly tossed aside in my fickleness. Not so!

Two weeks ago, DH went to do some handyman work for a delightful duo in our little town. The Sisters B have lived here since the elder was only 4 or 5. They are now 80-something and 70-something and have lived together in the same house all these years. The Elder is currently undergoing chemotherapy and has lost hair. DH was dismayed at the cap she was wearing when he visited and came home to say how nice it would be for her to have a hand-knit chapeau. He had a very thoughtful idea and I complied:

    What a sweet hat! I'm sure she'll love it.

    As for the cat bed, in my experience, cats often share beds - it's each cat for himself and whoever gets there first gets the (paper bag, cardboard box, shoebox, comfy sweater, etc.) I was wondering how your bed would look since most of the ones I've seen had been felted. Wally looks very comfy in it.

    That hat is so cute! And I love the bed! My chihuahua Zoe is way jealous now. :)
