Well, I promised you a multi-colored cat, and here she is!  Her name is Spring.

She is on her way to Yarntastic Fiber Arts with her siblings, where they will meet up with their bear friends.  

They will all be for sale there.  So stop in and take a look when you're in the neighborhood.

Baby Cat has been pretty busy lately with starting her new job and keeping up with weekly updates for Dream Design, but this project just seemed perfect for Laughing Cat!

One of Baby Cat's friends showed her the pattern for this adorable cat igloo, so she decided to make one.

The only problem is, our kitty doesn't seem to know how to use it. He hasn't gone inside even once, but prefers to sleep right next to it. 

Funny kitty!
We have tried reverse psychology to make him want to go inside by pretending it's not for him, but he doesn't seem convinced. Oh, well, maybe someday he'll try it.

Momma Cat has been very, very busy working these days, so she has not been as creative as when she has lots of time off!

But, she has been working hard on a new baby brother for Pink Kitty.  It took twice as long as usual because Momma Cat kept falling asleep while she was crocheting, then she'd have to rip everything out and start over again!  That slowed things down quite a bit!!

The night before last, about 1 o'clock in the morning, she finished Blue Baby Brother Cat!  Again, she used Bernat Pipsqueak Yarn, in Blue Ice.

Blue Baby is so sweet, but is in need of a good home.  He and his siblings are headed to Yarntastic Fiber Arts, to join their teddy bear friends.  

Don't worry though, Momma Cat is already working on another kitty to join them.  This kitty is multi-colored!  Here's a preview.

I know it doesn't look like much now.  This is just the beginning of the top of it's little head.  I think it's gonna be real cute.  Let me know what you think.

Well, I worked really hard and finished my pink kitty tonight!  She's made from the Bernat Pipsqueak yarn that I've become so enthralled with!

Here she is, pictured with Avalon (big black cat), and the new foal I just finished.

Doesn't it look like the foal is kissing the kitty?  Believe me, it wasn't posed that way.  That's just how the photo came out!

I have been making all my new animals out of this chenille yarn, called Bernat Pipsqueak.  I really like it because it's so soft, and it looks like a furry fabric, not like crochet at all!  

So, I've made several teddy bears, and then I decided to make a cat!  

Sweet Vanilla Cat

This cat is so soft and cuddly, I'm sure it will make someone a very loving companion!

Okay, so then I had to make a foal!  I found this cute pattern quite a while ago, and it's been calling my name ever since, so I just had to try making it out of this sweet yarn!

This foal is so new it can hardly sit up!
My current project with this yarn is a pink Cat!  You'll be seeing her soon!

Momma Cat works in a fabric store, and she loves to buy fabric!  Sometimes she buys fabric, then she puts it in a box and forgets she has it!  How embarrassing!

Recently Momma Cat came upon several boxes of fabric that she has bought and stored over the years.  Some of the fabric was just scraps, some she had inherited from Grandma Cat, but a lot of it she had bought herself!  

So Momma Cat decided to make some cool stuff for herself.  

First she made this pretty corduroy shirt.  It's a dark purple, with a paisley print.  It's nice and warm and doubles as a cover over a long or short sleeved t-shirt.

Momma Cat loves her new shirt!

Then Momma Cat made herself a pair of pajama pants out of this adorable, flannel, black and white cats print,

and a pajama top out of some black Ponte' Roma knit fabric that she bought.  The top is so soft and comfortable!  Momma Cat loves Ponte' Roma knit!  

Here are her Cat's Pajamas.  

Cat's pajamas! So warm and comfy!

Since sewing is one of Momma Cat's favorite things to do, she is going to keep making more stuff until some of the fabric she's accumulated gets used up! 

Right now she is working on some bags to sell at the next holiday bazaar in November 2015.  

Here's a preview:

That's all for now folks.  Momma Cat has to get back into her sewing room!
