I'm writing this in the first moment of peace I've had all morning. The kittens are asleep and I can finally type without little paws running across the keyboard. I can't believe how much the kittens have come along in the last week, they are all really confident and inquisitive. I am under attack at all times when they are awake as they love to play. One of there favourite games is to climb the my legs in the most painful way possible. I've been meeting lovely family's all week and now have forever homes for 4 of them.
Crafting with the kittens around has been nearly impossible. I wanted to get the fat friends pattern set complete and had meant to finish it with a rhino. I had to scrap that idea as the lack of face shape in the fat friends just didn't work for a rino. Someone on my facebook page suggested a frog, not something I had thought about before as I have a slight fear of frogs but i thought I'd give it a go.
Most of my work is crochet but when I need a hard surface to do the face details I tend to work with a big book on my knee while sat on the sofa rather than at my desk. Its a realising way to work even if I am being judged by grumpy kitten at the same time. The area under the book its the kittens favourite hiding space and fought over regularly (not fun when you are needle felting felt onto a froggy face)
My tubby little boy giving me a look of utter bliss. I needed to get some more felt but how could I move and disturb this little monster.
Little froggy did finally get finished and I'm really happy with him. I think he just right to finish the pattern set.
There are now 5 pastel and 5 bright fat friends.
I can't even take a photo without on of the kittens getting in on the shot.
