To My Neglected Crochet Blog

Since I last posted those pictures of my Drama King Cat, Beethoven has had to endure 5 different homes in 2 different states. Lilycat endured theses moves, too... but it seemed less traumatic for her.

First there was a 1600 mile drive, which Beethoven's tummy never adjusted to. I don't really want to go into detail here. Let's just say that as my sister and I drove across half of the country in about 3 days, we went through at least 3 carriers for him.

After that, there was the unfinished basement in rural PA... where Lilycat would find the most bizarre and fascinating insects. Beethoven was not pleased.

There was the drafty apartment which he didn't mind so much...

Then, there was the house where he had to compete with 2 dogs and a very voluptous cat for his food.

THEN, there was the trip South and staying in one tiny room with his archnemisis, aka Lilycat.

Finally, we have happily settled in a townhouse-style condo. Things are calm and quiet.

Beethoven has plenty of room and doesn't have to compete with anyone for food or space.

He is much more fun to be around now and his tummy has settled down. Apparently cats have mind-body issues, too.

My world jolted up and down and spinned around a few times. It's so much easier to just give you the cat update than to fill you in on my story.

With the rollercoaster of my life going on, I neglected my blog and my crafting.

I did make some really cool stuff in the past... uh... few years, though... so I want to start posting some of these things in an update.

So, welcome back to my blog.

I'm hoping I'm never away this long again.

I just stumbled across your blog looking for patterns for my little dude. I love your puppets you made several years ago. Any chance there is a pattern you can share?

Hi Mary C,
Thanks for the compliments on the puppets. I have no idea what I did, honestly-- but will take a look and see if I can remember.

Take care,
