Woo Hoo!
The HS emailed me back and said they would appreciate help making blankets for the pets to take home with them. The gal even said they have a bunch of yarn I can use. I am pumped to go get it and see what I can do for them

Great idea Hildie! Love it!!!

I've been wanting to make the Kitty Pi cat bed for ages! Kelly, that's the one I'll be making too, it's the same one I link to on my pet patterns page, it looks like a very fun project!

I've been back into spinning lately, and I've got a bunch of raw white wool that I've just spun. It will be perfect for a felted cat bed!

The wonton catnip toys look fun too! Thanks for kitty-testing them FiberGirl!
Awesome BinkyKat! Glad you've got the go ahead, and free yarn to boot.

Thanks Kelly! It's from the 1800's. I had to make several important parts for it to get it running again, but I love it! :sunny:

heh, I would bet that antique is worth a chunk of change, considering that it still is in use.
