Don't Judge A Book By It's Cover

is what I learned at the cat show this weekend....In the picture below is a Sphynx(cat). Most would consider this an ugly cat, however I have to say that I fell in love! He was so sweet and his owner talked about how very lovely he is and I would have to agree! I did some research on these cats and found out they originated in Canada. Sphynxes are know for their personality.. they are extroverts, intelligent, curious and affectionate. I pet him and he felt like soft leather, quite nice actually. I really want one... I'm not sure I can talk Jeff into it though. Three pretty persians. The one in the middle one first place in one of the persian categories.
This guy was a hoot. He of course was one of the judges and he was very funny.
I can not do a post about cats and not include mine! This is how I found them today! All lovin on each other.
Close up of the lovin!

My First Felted Project

My purse already has fans! Sunday and Ficher could not get enough of me outside taking pictures!
*The Taos Felted Purse*

This purse was so fun to make. I got the pattern from one of our local knitting shops, Knit Nouveau. This was my first time to felt, but I can guarantee you it will not be my last. The purse looks crazy big and unusually sized before you felt/wash it.

My Poetry

I was cleaning out a closet today and found lots of pictures, journals and a couple of books of poems by me. I would like to share one with you:

When I go to the ocean Your tide rolls in.
Please cleanse my dying body from all the filthy sin.
When I walk through the valley of confusion and despair.
Although it is a hike of struggle, you remind me you are always there.
When I'm on the mountain high, full of emotions great.
I am to humble myself oh Lord, for you have given me this day.
In Your fields of plenty I feast upon Your mercy.
Your grace it overwhelms me and fills me with Your glory.
