Florence

I'm afraid that crafty content is likely to be a bit sparse round these parts for the near future as we have been adopted by an exceptionally cute, small, fluffy, ginger killing machine called Florence.

We have been looking for a new cat since we got back from New Zealand.  I hadn't planned on getting a kitten but when the farm where we get our vegetables put a note in the newsletter asking for homes for the kittens of a pregnant stray who had moved in on the farm it was inevitable that we would offer.

We picked Florence up  a week last Monday, she is incredibly friendly, curious and everything has to be investigated and killed.  I don't fancy the chances of the local wildlife when she finally goes outside :/   So I can only knit or stitch while she is busy elsewhere or asleep at the moment so I'm mainly working on small projects that can be hastily stuffed into a project bag when Florence gets too interested.

I have however managed to finish up the first sock of the latest pair, knit in the Regia Stripe yarn again but for Christopher this time.

I have also finished the top of the pincushion from the Take a Lovely Sampler by Forget Me Nots in Stitches.

Florence is so so adorable! I've been enjoying your IG pics of her -- that dryer pic is my favorite! Enjoy her kittenhood while it lasts! And train the young kitten well -- Mia learned about not disturbing my craft stuff pretty well. She's a good girl and I'm sure Florence will learn too.

What a dolly!

Oh she's a little rascal already. Such a cute ball of fluff. It's hard to get angry at them when they're so cute.

I've been catching up on your previous posts - sounds like you've been having a good summer. The NZ trip must've been amazing. I hope to get there one day and see all the Hobbity things!

I see a sewing machine. Are you sewing much these days?

What a good heart you have to take a kitten in to your home. She is a doll. I hope you have many long years with her. big hugs Lynda Ruth
