Inherently there are no cats on this cloth, at least not the printed variety.

Ashton : )

Day 277 – Lilies, color and chickens!

Lilies!

Lilies!

One day without a lot of color and I missed it! Color, that is. This piece screamed “Use me!” and its a pretty happy pick-me-up, don’t you think?

Hula and ukelele : )

Hula and ukelele : )

No surprise that I love this cloth : )

It was part of my recent “haul” from the Alameda Flea market and Sue hasn’t seen it yet. What’s doubly sad is that Sue has an pretty extensive collection of Hawaiiana and Tiki items that NEED

Little ghillies : )

Little Ghillies : )

Sue did another fabulous job this year for her St. Patrick’s feast : ) Part of the table centerpiece are the very small set of Irish dance shoes that were her daughters’ first pair. They made me smile : )
