Mr. Fuzzy Face

 I am so grateful that the day Jenny and I went to the pet supply store our Timothy was up for adoption.  Bill and I adore him.  He is the cuddliest kitten I have ever known.

I picked a few grape hyacinths from my kind neighbor's garden.  Are they your favorites?
 It's one of our son-in-law's birthday today!  I ventured up the road to the tobacco store and bought him a fine Gandalf pipe.  I hope he likes it.  
 Mr. Snuggle Puss divides his time between his two devotees. 

 I'm so happy with my knitting.  The Stephen West Penguono pattern has been a great teacher.  I love the seed stitch, welts, and mixed colors of the garter stitch. 
 And every now and then I give a little hooky attention to Millie Rose's pastel blanket.  
 I'm still working on the sleeves of the striped sweater that I've been working on for over five years.  I thought that maybe if I drew it, I'd finish it.  Just about there. 
 And I'm still working on the mossinette socks. 

 Plum likes it when I draw the pictures so she can paint them with watercolors. 

 Would you pray that Noah's cold goes away?  He is frustrated with his running nose and watery eyes.  Poor lamb. 

 Stripes likes to cuddle and curl on our laps and occasionally on the bed.  
 Such a sweet fuzzy face . . . purrrrrrr.

I had to mail a box of books to my mama so I went to Sprouts and ground some coffee.  It's smelling lovely and I think I need a quiet moment to sip some delicious brew.
The afternoon and evening are full so I'm going to try to listen in the current quiet.  
Thank you very much for stopping by.
May your week hold joy.

Oh Pom Pom I really really want your cat!
Sadly, due to my husband's sight problems I cannot now have a cat, but my last tabby was 18 when she died, and I did love her.

How lovely to visit with you! I love your sweet purry kitty. I will pray for Noah. Its so hard when babies get colds. Its hard on Mama too.
Your knitting is always so nice and pretty. It makes me happy.
I hope your day is a lovely one. Its been a nice day today. Its cloudy and blowy today.
I hope you have a lovely day

No joy for me this week. I've got some type of flu, right out of nowhere and it's making me feel worse than awful! The worst thing is not being able to see my girlies tomorrow but I would hate to pass this on to them. You've been busy with the hooks and needles. Nice work. x

Lovely post Pom Pom! Love all the photos. Timothy is lucky to have found you!
Hope little Noah feels better soon.
Take care.

Yes, I prayed Noah's cold would go away.
I really like the dishes.
I've had some projects that's I've been working on for years too. : )

Julia said...

Poor little Noah, it makes me sad to see little toddlers sick. I pray that his cold will go away.

Your knitting is lovely and so is that sleepy kitty. I love seed stitches especially for scarves. Timothy knows how lucky he is to have found you and I think you are lucky to have found him.
Take care, Hugs, Julia

You certainly have lots of projects on the go at the same time. I guess that way you can choose which you might feel like working on!
Noah looks cheery in spite of his cold. Poor little guy. Timothy looks like he has the best cat life ever living in your house!

Julie said...

Mr Fuzzy Face is just beautiful dear Pom Pom. How lucky he is that he got to come & live at your home. Your knitting colours & wools are just beautiful too. xxx

Praying for Noah's cold to be gone! Poor kid! I love that you do so much knitting...It's a good thing I don't knit or I would want thousands of skeins of yarn. They are all so pretty!!!

I am loving that sweet kitty you have, too. xo Diana

Gumbo Lily said...

Fuzzy Tim is so cute. He's a lover! Your knitting is so amazing. I love how you keep on going with all of your projects. God bless little Noah. Colds are no fun.

I like the drawings turned paintings!

Oh, sweet Noah. Praying right now that his runny nose and eyes would heal up and go away. Glad you are happy with your little fuzzy one!

Deb said...

I do love hyacinth...and Timothy, too.

Henny Penny said...

You really did good when you came home with Timothy. He looks like the perfect kitty cat! Hope little Noah's cold goes away soon. Your knitting and yarns are so pretty. I love Hyacinths too. Another flower that my mother loved.

I love that having to go to the post office became something to do with sprouts and smelt of delicious coffee. I understand none of it, but it brings me vicarious joy! I am praying for boys with colds, and great healing- on both sides of the wide Atlantic x

Sweet Tims is the sweetest of all pussycats. I love you mama!

Lisa Richards said...

I think your little kitty has become quite a large cat! He's pretty good at snoozing. ;)
I just love seeing all of your knitting works-in-progress. Makes me want to begin knitting socks and hats. You are so patient to continue working on something for years! It's nice to know I could take my time and learn slowly. I really want to do this knitting thing!
You have quite a knack for drawing original characters. Your grands are blessed to have a granny who can create original coloring pages in the twinkling of an eye. :)
I sent up a prayer for Noah.

Kim said...

Oh to have a snugglepot for a cat. Alas, our feline is an aloof fellow. You have a serious amount of knitting happening. LOVE all those bright and happy colours and patterns. Your Noah is the sweetest cherub....hope his cold flees far, far away very soon. LOVE the photo with all those squashy quilts; somehow they fill me with oodles of comfort. Have a beautiful weekend, lovely lady.

Thistle Cove Farm said...

It's lovely when a rescue is thankful; some of mine are, others...not so much. Praying the cold is GONE.
My i-net has been broken so haven't visited lately.

Danette Bartelmay said...

I can't get enough of that adorable Timothy ...
And your precious grandchildren!
I love all of your colorful fiber works!
Hope your coffee was yummy.

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

That is an adorable cat and you sure have a lot of knitting going on. The picture of the baby is so precious. Nancy

I will pray for little Noah! Poor guy! I love the pictures of sweet Timothy snuggles! He is so precious, and it is wonderful to find a sweet kitty! All your yarn projects are amazing, you are so talented! A very sweet and wonderful post, hope you got to enjoy that cup of coffee :)

OOOh your kitty is delightful and so photogenic! What a sweetie! Happy birthday to your son-in-law. We are celebrating anniversaries in our phamily. I love it. Going to pack our bag for Salina so we can watch our baby boy graduate from college. What!? Where does time go?
Love all the sweet photos are Noah is on my prayer list. What sweet little ones.
Have a great week.

Your sweet fuzzy face loves you both so much, and it's clear he is loved dearly too! What a perfect fit for your home. Pom, your projects are just gorgeous! Love the colors and textures there. And the pictures you make for your grands to color look like so much fun. They will talk about that for years to come! "Remember when Granny would draw for us ...?"
