I have more bags and another animal...

At last - I finally finished the rest of the "Jenny Girls" and am really pleased how they turned out! They measure approx 9" tall x 10" wide. There is an open divided pocket and a zipper pocket in the inside. The strap is approx 24" long.

In other news we adopted Anderson last week. He's finally getting a little braver, so I was able to get a couple of photos without spooking him.

I was devastated this past fall when we lost our cat Orvis to kidney failure. As painful as it was to see him go, I didn't rule out ever getting another animal. We happened to see this guy at an adoption event at Petco, but didn't think it was a good decision as he is older and we have two other cats.

Anderson stuck in the back of my mind as did his story - he was taken from a hoarding situation in 2008, then adopted by an older man who passed away in the fall so he was taken back to the shelter.

He is nine, which makes him less likely to be adopted and they don't put down any of the animals there, so I kept thinking of him spending the rest of his days in a kennel and I couldn't let that happen - so we took him home :)

Na na na na na- Go Pack Go!

Am I a hardcore football fan?
Hmmmmm - okay - no
Do I like an excuse to cheer and make noise?
Hmmmmm - okay - yes (and while you can see me blowing the horn, what you cannot see is that I actually splurged and bought a Packers sweatshirt for the big game)
Hey - it's Wisconsin Baby - and when it's this cold you got to get your kicks where you can ha ha!
Shrimp, ham rolls and a meatball sandwhich - ahh the finer things in life :)

Thanks to this special request I got back into the creative groove (I was in a funk) and started a new batch of "Jenny Girls". I finished this one (very sharp if I do say so myself) to deliver as promised and I have a few more in the works that will be done by the end of the week.
