New babies & new bag~~~

We got new kittens born on Palm Sunday, how cool is that!!! We had a stray cat that was dropped off, we needless to say she got pregnant very quickly. Saturday she came into my sewing room ( which BTW is a converted garage) looking all over the place, figured she was looking for a safe spot for her babies. So I got a box, put in some scrap batting, got some food/water/litter box all set up for her. Locked her in, checked on her before church on sunday, 2 were born, by 4 o'clock Sunday 3 more. She is such a good mommy. I put the box under my sewing table with some fabric to make it look like they are hiding. :) Now I've got to find good parents for them when the time is right, then off to get her fixed, no more kittens for us, we have enough stray cats as it is. So I'll do as bob barker says "get your pets spayed/neutered". LOL.

Today I decide to piddle around in the sewing room. Slowly getting ready for the big OhioQuilters retreat come May. Then boom, got distracted~~~ doesn't take much for me, LOL. So I made me a new wonder wallet, my old one was wearing out. I'm sure Clyde would say it due to my credit cards and money in that thing straining the seams, hehehe. I'm going to make another one just to put those store cards that you need to pull out to get points etc on. I hate trying to find them in my purse. Then I made a new what I'm using for a makeup bag. My other one needed replaced. I had a pattern from This & That, which I loved, so I sewed it up pretty quickly. I used some of my Kansas trouble scraps, and tweaked it a little bit. I really liked how it turned out, very easy to follow instructions which I appreciate. I'm such a visual person when it comes to putting something together.

Off to finish dinner and throw another load of towels in the washer~~~

Your new babies are really cute.

I like your bag and wallet. You get distracted in a good way. You at least get something done, even if not the thing you set out to do. I on the other hand get distracted, and get nothing done. LOL

I better start packing Retreat Stuff. I can't wait. I might have to lead-foot it all the way there. LOL
