A long time…

I’ve been absent of late for a variety of reasons. First I was working on stock for the Vo-Ag craft fair that I love to work at Regional 7 and it was one of the best shows I’ve ever worked. There were more vendors than ever and we were busy all day long.

The second reason was that 3 days before this fair I lost my feline companion of 12 years and the inspiration for my studio and blog name. Weez died of congestive heart failure and losing the second of my two cats within a 6 month time frame really hit me hard. It’s been a  long 3 weeks, but we are now looking into getting a kitten to move in with my son’s cat – he’s moving and he’s away from home quite a bit – over Christmas break. I’m looking forward to it, but I’m also dreading it a bit. A kitten! Baby, Weez, and I had all lived together for 12 years and I’m getting set in my ways. I suspect that this is one way to look at the world through new eyes.

At the end of the Vo-Ag fair myself and a couple of friends were approached to work a fair on the 14th of this month so I’ve been busily knitting, crocheting, and weaving for that as well as filling orders I’ve received both at and since the fair. I do apologize for my lapse if you have missed me and I hope that you understand. I’m very excited about the projects I’m planning to start after this last show of the year and I hope that you will be here when I do begin.

  1. I have been so busy with Fair, orders, and presents ad well as being injured I am behind on posting. Your post looks great.,

    • I’m sorry to hear that you are injured. It is a busy time of year, isn’t it? Thank you.

  2. Mare, I’m soo sorry to hear about losing your Weez. It will be 4 yrs in Feb. since we lost our beloved little boy cat to the same thing as your Weez. We also adopted a boy kitten this past summer in addition to our 3yr old girlcat, and it’s been an adventure!! I love them both dearly. Pls keep us posted on your new kitty. Your pieces pictured above look amazing I might add!

    • Thank you so much for both your condolences and your encouragement. I will post about the new members of the family. I’m alternating excitement and dread – the dread because I have a housefull of yarn and my last two feline buddies were great about it. Now I can see that the looms really are just very tall cat toys. 😉 We will have almost the same combination of sexes and ages….I think that comparison notes are certainly in the future.

      • Oh yes, definitely! Although my two have been together now since early summer, they have their moments where any new advice re: socializing and/or teaching them to be nice to one another would be very helpful. Look forward to hearing how it goes for you!
