Margo, Bertie, cat beds and kitty kickers!

Little Margo all pretty in red!

I have been doing quite a bit of sewing this week, but not all ellie's and mice. I made twelve cat beds for my favorite animal charity to sell.I also made 100 kitty kickers for them to sell also.
In case you are wondering what kitty kickers are, they are fabric bags filled with organic catnip that kitty's go wild over.
Just watch these two video's and you'll get the idea.
This lovely little kitty belong's to my daughter and her name is Holly.

Whew, I think my sewing machine needs to cool down a bit! Of course that will never happen, there is always something around here that needs sewing.

Last but not least, there is this little guy...Bertie the little circus mouse, I decided to go just a little wild with this one, I hope he makes you giggle!

It is plain to see that Margo is a busy lady, what with her charity work and lunches. She's terribly active in the local church too. She is such a treasure. I think I have a kitty who likes catnip too, but not as much as he likes knitting.

Your creations make me smile! We used to have two kitties (prior to children!) and they played just like in your videos. It's great that you are able to use your talent to benefit a cause you are so passionate about! Keep up the great work!

Wow, you have been so busy! I miss having a cat so much!! They were always my babies and they all came from animal shelters. (Ellie thinks she is my cat... she's so furry like Janelle!)
Margo and Bertie are perfect... I love that you made Bertie so colorful! I was just looking through old emails and I realized that you never told me about your sister's visit to the Queen!
