|Doing a narrow rolled hem with the wooly nylon in the upper looper. This is my powerhouse Husqvarna Huskylock 936!|

Part of the other reason there weren't that many crafts to post? This little guy. Well, little isn't the word we use to describe him much these days - he's 10 months old and a solid CHUNK of cat. And he insists on being my sewing assistant. His name is Neko-Basu, which is Japanese for Kitty Bus. Comes from the Japanese animated movie "Totoro." My son and his friends decided on that name, and it is apt for more than one reason. First, this guy is built like a bus. Second, his absolutely favorite thing to do? Be carried around the house in some kind of make-shift bus - a box, a laundry basket, sometimes even a plastic bag. He only gets mad if you stop moving. Odd how he lives up to his name, which started as a joke.
|Going for a bus ride - this was an unscheduled stop, as you can see by his annoyed look.|
I am sitting here laughing, since he looks about twice this big now. This was when he was only four months old. Here he is, a little bit older (and fatter):
|Why, no, I didn't need to get that pants pattern copied off these slacks. Go right ahead and use them as a kitty bed.|
|Remember this one? He's on the grand piano. He takes up about half of it.|
|On my bed. With a paperback book for comparison. Just FYI, it's a California King. He is stretched over half the bed.|
