I'm trying to always have a book I'm enjoying on the go, I've just begun Started Early, Took My Dog by Kate Atkinson, an author I really like. And I'm getting slightly back into sewing, doing some hemming of a jersey top in front of Entourage last night.

Ho ho

I'm really looking forward to seeing this, especially as it looks pretty (ahem) hammy. I'm a big fan of melodrama!

Cat pattern - a cattern, if you will!

This is my first go at following Julia Rothman's pattern tutorial on Design Sponge by hand, cutting up my paper. My natural impatience with measuring and cutting carefully meant I bodged it a bit, and it came out a bit wonky and join-showing... it's such a great way to do patterns though, I must just be more patient next time!
Contorting cats!

Tattoo you

Trying to get back into the swing of things, I'm not finding it so easy!
Here's a rough picture, I'm thinking about cards again and what might make a nice range. This guy could be from "Cats of the Past" or somesuch thing...
