Momma Cat has a new job!  She's been working at JoAnn's Superstore since October, so she hasn't had as much time to craft as usual.  But, she is currently working on a beautiful crocheted wrap for Baby Cat's wedding.  She can't show you a picture, because there's not much to it yet.  It's going to be beautiful though, she can promise you that!   Stay tuned for updates.

Because Momma Cat always has to be making something, she decided to crochet a giant Amineko Cat.  She bought some beautiful baby alpaca yarn from Yarntastic, her favorite yarn store, and began making this cat just for fun.  It took a long time to crochet this cat, not only because she's huge, but  because Momma Cat could only work on it at night, and she was tired after working, so she fell asleep while crocheting a lot!

This cat is so soft and huggable, she gets hugged several times every day.

Momma Cat named her cat Avalon after a character on the TV show, Bones.  Avalon is a psychic, expertly played by Cindy Lauper,  that had to interact with Bones during a murder investigation.  Of course, Bones basically thinks psychics are all full of hooey.  Anyway, it turned out that Avalon's contributions were pretty much right on the money, and she earned Bone's respect.  In a later episode Avalon ended up singing "At Last" at Booth and Bones' wedding, Ms. Lauper did such and amazing job that it left a lasting impression on Momma Cat.  So naturally, she HAD to name her cat Avalon! 

Avalon is wearing a short-sleeved, red and white striped, baby alpaca sweater.  She is also sporting a beautiful red ribbon embossed with hearts that Momma Cat found for her.

We hope you like Avalon as much as we do!

  1. Avalon is beautiful! She looks so soft in her baby alpaca yarn - no wonder she gets hugged a lot. Now I have to check out Bones and see if I can find the wedding episode where Cyndy Lauper sings "At Last." :) love, Maureen

    1. Maureen,

      I hope you do. It really is worth seeing. I'm glad you like Avalon.

  3. Jennifer,

    Avalon is soft, and she's the most well behaved cat I've ever had.
