Show and Tell with Furry Friends Helping.

Its been a busy week and I am happy that I have gotten lots done. Thats always a good thing around this time of year. Its been a week now since I have been unemployed and I think I am better each day. At least I am moving on the the next phase, anger! lol Now I am just mad, not so much sad. But thats OK too, I am using that energy in a positive way. I have alot of projects in various stages and I will post them when they are finished, but I have a couple pillows to post today. The gold colored plaid is a vintage piece of fabric I picked up at a yard sale in Providence RI in June. I love the retro colors. The fabric is in excellent condition. The heart was just something new to try. And this is Googars. He is my main helper. He sticks to me like glue. Its funny because when I lived in my townhouse before he insisted on being a mostly outdoor cat. He was the neighborhood bully too. I would here cat fights and I always new it was him. There was flat roofs on the buildings and he was always running across everyones roof making noise. It was quite embarassing at times, so when I moved I would not let him out and I dont know if he is happy about it or if he figures if he annoys me enough I will throw him outside. I hope everyone is enjoying the fall. Not quite here yet, but I am anticipating its arrival! Have a happy, healthy and creative day... Until next time...... gail

Hi Gail! I Love them both! OMG, I forgot all about our Garage sale purchases. Too Funny, they must be at the Fla. House. Don't you just love furry people who assist us all day long? I do. Have a super creative week, your doing great building your biz!

What a cutie pie ! Wailin looks a lot like him, she has a lot more white on her chest tho. She tries to help me at the 'puter :).

Love your new items. Glad you are channeling the frustration into beautiful creations.

Hi Gail. Love the new pillows. Your furry man is just beautiful! Those eyes! Little Leo is always at my side too. He follows me from room to room and sleeps in my lace. They are too funny. Hope you have a great week! Oh, I look forward to hearing from you too. Can't wait to hear what you have in mind.

Hi Gail,

How are you doing ? Thanks for visiting me.
Love your new pillows, they look great! The photo of your cat is too cute, he looks like he's holding a pen helping to draft something LoL.
Have a great creative week!

Hi Gail! Loved the new pillows.The material you bought from a yard sale on your trip to the Cape make lovely pillows for fall decor. I cherish my little treasures I brought home with me from that trip. It was the highlight of my year, thus far. Your little helper looks like a toughie. A Cream puff in disguise. Great show and tell.

Gail, I think your furry sweetie is happy inside and especially being with you full-time. It is hard being outside in the city all of the time. I am sorry about your work, but I'm sure a window will open soon enough. Per usual your pillows are beautiful. Hugs, Tedi
