Blog friends are THE BEST :) I have received so many sweet comments and emails regarding my recent "mishap". I really do appreciate each and every one of them and it warms my heart knowing how much you care. Thank you so much. The wrist is still a little sore and the staples will come out Monday. Hopefully the wound will heal quickly so I can take care of those unsightly roots . . . lol.
Here is the little mat I could not show you. Santa Paws (correction ~ Claws, not paws . . . duh) is a freebie pattern from Lori of Not Forgotten Farm. My California son Bill and girlfriend Melisa have a pure white cat named snowball. They were here for Thanksgiving so I gave them the mat. What I failed to remember about Snowball was that she doesn't have a normal cat tail, just a curly stub. Oh, well. She'd look like this if she had a normal one :) I also could not hook with white wool (just me . . . I don't like to hook with solid colors), so I used a very light wool with a bit of color in it. Melisa is already back home and my son will be here for a couple more days. It is so good to see him.
My niece and family were here from Chicago. It is a tradition started about 15 years ago and they have made it here every Thanksgiving since. Jake absolutely adores his cousins. Jake just loved his purple shirt and Melisa told him it takes a real man to wear purple, so he repeated that many times during the day.

Holiday crunch time is quickly approaching. I know all my stress is self inflicted so I have no one to blame but myself. I will never learn . . . sigh.
I hope you had the best Thanksgiving ever. Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
