A Tisket, A Tasket

Jaynie has a new basket.

I've done a bit more work on the hutch that I started a while back.   I know, I'm slow.  It's almost done.  I think that it needs bead feet but I can't decide if they should be brown or yellow.  
What do you think?   

The draw still needs handles, I have not found what I want yet.  I did make the draw so that it  can open,  I forgot  to get a picture of that.

Jaynie wanted a basket to sit beside it.

I bought this paper punch because I think that it makes a nice little fence.  It also worked to make a simple basket out of very few supplies.   I used thin strips of paper woven through and wooden shapes for the bottom.   Glue, scissors and a toothpick to spread the glue were the only other supplies needed.     It was easy to make it round,  I'm going to try to make a rectangle one.  I think it would work on the bottom shelf.

I've started gathering a few bits and pieces that may work on the shelves.

What kind of things would you put on it?

Thank you for visiting, Mary

Meet My Cat

Olwyn of   Oly's little world  had a picture of her 2 ginger kittens on her new blog, so cute.  I started looking through pictures of my old boy,  so I thought you might like to see some.  These were taken this July.

This one is one of his senior moments,  he decided that the kitchen table (piled with alot of my crafts at the time) was a good place for a nap.  My husband took the picture and left it to me to move the cat. 

And here are a few older pictures.  He was a bit chubbier in these.

And an even older one with his older brother Kit.   ( He lived to just shy of 15 yrs old)

I hope you enjoyed seeing my pictures.
