WOYWW 287 - Craftin' Kitty on My Workdesk

She's after my reindeers
 Well, I've been in the middle of Christmas decorating, and trying to get back to my craft table to clean up, and start stitching with my freshly cross-stitched and beaded reindeers, and then this happens. It's my sweet, funny, bossy tortoise shell kitty Minnie wanting to help. 

Happy What's-On-Your-Workdesk-Wednesday by the way. Visit all the desks in this happy hop!

Minnie is about 13-years-old and runs the household. I always say there are a lot of brains in that tiny kitty head! She is also my constant companion. I always have to make sure there are no needles or exacto knives pointing up on my desk, and now you see why. 

So today I'm so tired from post Thanksgiving housecleaning and current Christmas decorating and grocery shopping - my crafting time got squeezed out. Maybe this weekend I'll have my mojo back, I can fire up the Gilmore Girls, and get some scrapbooking and stitching done! Reindeers will be turned into cards and ornaments. Have a happy week!

Eat, Write, Dream, Stitch


  1. Hi sandy, and big hugs to Minnie. She is gorgeous! Love the cross stitch reindeer, they'll make awesome cards. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #7 xxx

  2. Lol, Minnie rules the roost, eh? Don't worry, she's in good company because Harry and Ron know who's boss as well.....and it's not me!!!
    I hope you had a wonderful family time at Thanksgiving, all your cooking went well and was appreciated by one and all. I haven't got our Christmas decorations out yet, that'll happen on my hubby's birthday, it's tradition and he sulks if it doesn't happen, lol!
    Hugs, LLJ 22 xx

  3. Awwww. We have a Tortie kitty and her name is Peanut. She slobbers on my projects. LOL. I can't wait to see the cards and ornaments.

  4. Thanks for coming over and commenting, Sandy! I really appreciate the pins too! Your kitty looks a lot like my parents cat - 13 is very old for a cat! I wish I had one too to keep me company! Enjoy your week! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #30

  5. Your cat makes me smile. I alway's thought cats are very clever pets. And its okay if she is the boss!!! Keep smiling and creating, love your reindeer.

  6. ...and everybody say...awww! So cute, it's always nice to have an assistant! x

  7. What a lovely cat....I can well imagine her being the boss :-) Hope you get some me time over the weekend and feel up to creating again.

  8. What a beautiful cat, you are so lucky to have her as your constant companion. I lost my little cat that had similar colouring a while ago and I still miss her. Love having them around but not replacing this time.
    Give her a tickle under the chin from me.
    Hugs, Neet xx

  9. Minnie is adorable! I once had a torty kitty and she was so loving! My current kitty, Raphael is of course the studio manager, he will be 16 this May and he is just about my everything... total love bug!

    I am so loving those reindeer cross-stitch! Fabulous idea for a card front too! Hope your mojo returns soon and you are back in your crafty stride!
    Hugs and happy WOYWW week,

  11. Hi Sandy - your Minnie must be related to our Rosie - she has just the same expression, and habits, by the sound of it. Hope you can get back into the swing of things quickly, pussy cats willing! Hugs, Chris # 15
