Every year about this time I start talking about the St. Agatha Holiday Bazaar.  This will be the fourteenth year that Baby Cat and I have participated!!!  Believe me, we are just as excited this year as we were the very first time.  Only, hopefully, we are a lot wiser.  

Both Baby Cat and I make things we think everyone will enjoy seeing.  We try to keep our prices reasonable so that all of our items are affordable for people that really WANT to own them.  

We hope you will stop by the Holiday Bazaar this year to see our creations, AND to meet us, if we haven't already met .  

Here's the Bazaar flyer with all the details.  Please feel free to tell everyone you know about it.  The more the merrier, we always say!  

Even though it's early, Happy Holidays!  From the Cat Family.

Momma Cat has been seriously sewing and crocheting for months now to get ready for the annual St. Agatha Holiday Bazaar, which will be on November 9 and 10 this year (Momma will post a flyer in a later blog post)

Here are two of her new medium sized bags that she just finished.  She has also made "Greensleeves" to match them.

There is a large blue bag (not pictured here) that matches the one in this photo in our inventory.  So make sure to come by the Holiday Bazaar and check it out.  

We look forward to seeing all our old friends, and hopefully some new ones, in November!

Of course, if you've heard those words once,  you'd know exactly who they came from, and when.  If you don't remember, I'll clue you in.  Remember the cute little blue alien in the Disney movie, Lilo and Stitch?  Well Stitch says "Meega Na La Queesta" to the Council and is immediately thrown off  the planet and sent to Earth.  I fell in love with Stitch during that movie and have waited for years to make one of my own.

Here's my little Stitch I just finished crocheting using a pattern I got off of  It's from Sweet 'n Cute Creations, by a woman named Shannen Nicole.  Thank you Shannen!

Stitch playing with (who else?) Stitch!

 You can see why I love him so much!  He's adorable, and actually turns out to be a really great little guy.

I've been making a lot of things for the upcoming St. Agatha Holiday Bazaar.  Here are a couple of bags I just finished.  First the large bag (on the left), has a cell phone pocket on the outside, and four pockets on the inside.  

The second bag (on the right) , which is a medium sized bag, has one medium sized pocket, and two large pockets on the inside.

Large Bag, Medium Bag, and Greensleeve

Both bags are quilted and lined, they have magnetic closures, and the pockets all have velcro closures on them.  

Also, in the middle you will see a "Greensleeve" that I made out of the excess fabric.  Greensleeves are totally washable and dryable, and fit on hot or cold coffee cups.  Not only are they pretty, they protect your hands, they absorb moisture, and they save trees!

All these items will be for sale at the upcoming St. Agatha Holiday Bazaar.  The first weekend in November, at St. Agatha Church in Portland, Oregon.

This little cutie just showed up and Baby Cat and Fiancé Cat's house last night! She just moved to Portland for school and was looking for a place to live. Right now she is sleeping on Baby Cat's sewing table, but she might be looking for a new home at the St. Agatha Christmas Bazaar in a month or so.

If you would like to make Cosette, her original pattern is available in our Etsy shop for $5, or by visiting Baby Cat's Ravelry profile. She is so much fun to have around!

Okay, I thought we were all done with cats around here.  I mean, now that the summer has ended, rather abruptly, I might add, I figured that stray cats might stop showing up a our door.  

Boy, I couldn't have been more wrong.  This is the scene I came upon, a couple of days ago, after mistakenly leaving a paper bag on top of my ironing board. 

Cats love paper bags!
A while later, I was walking through the living room to get to my sewing machine, so I could do some work, but then I saw these two sitting together on my sewing desk.

Midna and Tangerine atop Momma's sewing  desk

They seemed to be hitting it off together, so I decided to go do something else for a while so the two of them could have some time together. 

 I know they've begun to really like each other, because I found Tangerine in a totally different place than I left her in, so I think Midna's  been having some fun with her.

I was at Yarntastic Fiber Arts a few weeks ago for Craft Night.  Lesley (one of the owners) said that she really loved the little doll that I was making.  Now, I don't usually do this, but Lesley and Dave (her husband), have been so nice to me, I decided to make Lesley a little doll all of her own.  

Lesley's New Baby

So, here she is.  I named the last baby I made, Candy.  I wonder what Lesley will name this one? I wonder if she'll keep this baby in her shop so all of her customers can see it?  I guess we will see!
