Good morning! Today is my Friday. With the other stuff behind me I can go get my epidural tomorrow so I will not be around for the next few days. I've taken the day off tomorrow and one of my Bomber Girl sisters is going to take me to get it and bring me home. (They won't let me drive myself home after) I haven't had one before so I'm not sure what to expect but it seems the concensus is that it's not too bad a procedure. I'm hoping for relief from the pain in my lower back. I guess we'll see how it goes.
Yesterday it cleared up here and got up to 70!!! I had my window open in the car on the way home and opened up the front and back door at the house. It's a rainy day in GA today and the rain is supposed to be here until Saturday afternoon and then clear and be cold again. The temp will stay in the 40's today. I know I have no right to bitch because at least we are not in the midst of that horrible winter storm roaring through the midwest and north. This is why I live in the south, but I'm sure you share my sentiment of 'when is it going to be spring already???' So with my epidural and yukky weather for the next couple of days guess where my big butt will be??? On da couch, sharing it with Mr. Lick Lick. We will no doubt be sharing a blanky being all comfy cozy. He loves it when his mama is hanging out with him.
So I thought I'd better get some pics of this bag kitty I've been talking about. I even took a pic of the pattern. And I was right....it was featured in Crochet World magazine but in the year 2000. The pattern is called 'Baggy Cat' by Lauri Grammer. You can find it here on Ravelry or go to FreePatterns.com. The size of the cat is supposed to be 23 inches. I guess I neglected to notice that originally. But when I realized that I didn't have enough of one color to do the skirt I decided to bust my stash of cotton yarn.
I've kind of gotten away from the thick cotton for a little while. I actually prefer the thinner cotton of the Village Yarn. It seems the thicker is harder to work with. Maybe it's just me. But I want you to check this CRAP out. Look at the next pic. Tell me what you see.
Ok, so on to the cat bag. Yea, the colors.....(had to recollect my train of thought after the sidetrack!)....so I will have 7 different balls of color, not all full balls but enough to get Ms. Catty done. I have everything I need except the heart shaped button for her nose. Here's what I have done so far:
I hate how these pics turned out. The light here is not the best.
The purple that I showed you with the different ends is going to be her apron. I saved some of the blue at the top for her arms. The two multi-colors were full balls, the next light blue was a partial ball and the last two toned purple was a partial ball.
She's getting there. I may have her finished this weekend, we'll see how it goes.
From me and Leo to ya'll - have a fantastic weekend and try to stay comfy cozy in the midst of this crazy weather we are having!
