Day Two of Stephie's Reign

I do believe this is a first with Laura's blog. I am blogging for her for the second day in a row. In case you missed yesterday's fascinating blog post I am Stephanie, the cat that owns Laura.

As promised I had pictures taken of all of her unfinished projects and the dirty quilt she dragged home from a yard sale. I must say that she has accomplished quite a bit on several of the projects but others are just shameful and only add to the clutter around the house. And, let me tell y'all, the Stephie Cat does not hold for clutter. My favorite thing to do is to move about the house and point out the areas that are mussy.

Anyway, here are the pictures. I had to enlist my Grandmother in the project so don't blame me if the pictures aren't up to your standards. I have no opposable thumbs, that makes picture taking difficult.

What you are seeing is a sock, the dark blue is the beginning of a rug, the red is an almost complete Christmas tree garland and the small blue thing is, I believe, the beginnings of a dishcloth. Please pardon the gratuitous dog picture. Grandmama just loves adding those little homey touches to her photography.

And finally here is a shot of the quilt. Laura keeps saying that she's going to wash it and make it pretty, but all I know is that she better hurry before I do something about it. My poor nose is still stuffed up from when I took it down to Grandmama's house. Again ignore the small furry creature she has snapped a picture of. I read somewhere that cat pictures can increase a blogs traffic, but still this is getting a little too much.

Ta ta 'til tomorrow.

Well, Well, Well

I guess I should introduce myself. My name is Stephanie. I own Knittin' Pigeon (she thinks it's the other way around) and I guess that means that it's my duty to make sure she gets her job done. I see that this blog is one of the many things she has failed to keep up with, so here I am.

First things first. I will post a picture of myself so you can picture me when I speak. Plus, I'm drop dead gorgeous and it would add a little bit of pleasure to your humdrum lives to see me.

Now that I have been properly introduced and can move ahead with this post. I have tallied that Laura has 4 projects that she is working on at the moment. They appear to be Christmas tree garland, a rug, a blanket and a sock. Hopefully by telling the entire internet of her inability to focus I can make her clean up her projects and more importantly my couch. I am sick and tired of her moving me off of nice warm wooly things only to be told not to rip out her stitches. As if!

She also keeps talking about starting a garden. I've seen her reading magazines and books on gardening instead of petting me lately and this has definitely got me worried. I mean, why should you read a stinky old book about growing vegetables. I could understand studying methods of raising a few fish in a pond for cat snacks or even some chickens. But vegetables? Yuck.

Tomorrow I will take pictures of her incomplete projects as well as show you the nasty blanket she dragged home. She insists on gloating about finding a Depression Era Quilt that was made out of flour and cotton sacking. I really don't understand her need to keep collecting things that are dusty,
