Firstly, I am really not sure how a post dated 3rd July came to appear here today. I hope you didn't miss my Friday Frivolity No 4 which was also posted today as it was a special favourite of mine that I hoped to share with you.
Secondly, as you know I make a lot of crochet rugs for Vinnys so there are always completed rugs waiting to go there and others in various stages of completion.
For some weeks now Candy, of an evening, has been sleeping on a small armchair near the window in the living room. Last night I suddenly realised she was not on the chair and nor was she on one of the beds which are her other favourite places.
I then remembered her going into the 'other' half of the living room so I got up to check. Behind the sofa is a desk on which I had placed some of my crochet, both completed (you can see those on the left of the picture), and in the process of being made. Who should I find making herself comfortable in a box containing pieces of work but Candy:
The expression on her face said "OK so you found me and yes, thank you, I'm very comfortable." Now this box would be the size of perhaps two shoe boxes placed together but she managed to look so cosy and in fact went back to the same box three times during the evening.
This is a cat that won't sit on my knee if I have a cocheted rug over me and yet here she is cuddling up to crocheted pieces. If she persists in doing this I'll have to make some bits for her as I don't think she should be sleeping on work that is intended to go to an op shop to be sold.
Honestly though, have you ever seen a cat look so contented as Candy does here? Right now she has taken possession of my armchair which I will reclaim when I go to watch TV. I am wondering if it will be back to the usual armchair or into the box. I'll let you know later what happens.
