Thanks SEW much!

I would like you so see this gorgeous wee boys of mine - Sooty & Sweep who have taken to sleeping on our bed in the afternoons. Aren't they just heavenly? But really they are wee monsters. When I go to bed while Graham locks up Sweep comes up with me and hides under the pillows til Graham comes to find him. So now Sooty has started soming up too and he hides under the duvet at my feet! The funny thing is when we got them we both said they were not to get onto the beds!! I can see that rule flew out the window then. I am tempted to let then stay with me all night when Graham is away with work but I am not sure that is a good idea - it would be SO obvious to Graham when he came back wouldn't it? Still on the subject of the kittens - we tend to call Sweep (the tabby) Squeek as he cannot yet meiow and may never we have been told. He simply squeeks instead and it is SO funny. Onto this card now - it is for 4 challenges - the most I have managed to tie together in one card.
I am entering it into Craftilicious 'Thanks' Challenge; Bugaboo's Sewing and Fall Colours Challenge; Pollycraft Autumn Colours Challenge and Bunny Zoe's Sketch Challenge.

Isn't this bear just so cute sitting there on the thread spool looking so innocent but methinks he has unravelled all the thread and it is in a pile behind him somewhere - gosh my head is full of stupid thoughts today!!

  1. Oh Sheila your boys are stunning, & yes Graham would know they give the game away lol. I'm sure I can remember saying mine weren't allowed on the bed, we have trouble getting in it sometimes if they are sprawled out lol.
