Note Card Party!




I missed Vee's Note Card Party last month.
I had a cold and forgot all about the party.
But I was forgetting about almost everything.
I looked back at the month of September to see what I missed!



Shell

The end of summer.


Mina

Mina -- keeping Mummy's place on the sofa all safe and warm.


McHugh Tea Shop

McHugh Tea -- the first day I could really enjoy tasting.


Christmas Wreaths


As long as I was curled up on the couch with kitties, I put the time to good use.
Crochet Christmas Wreath hot pads.

That's how I spent my time while I had a cold.

A big thank you to Vee for hosting the Note Card Party.

A Haven for Vee
Wishing YOU well and much joy!

Despite that cold, I'd say you had a very productive and enjoyable September! xo

Love your notecards, Snap. I especially like the first one - great vignette - and the second one - pretty kitty!

A nice set of notecards. The first one is real "arty" and the lighting is wonderful. I enjoyed seeing your crocheted wreaths --a cute idea.

Mina is a sweetie, and was probably a helpful kitty nurse while you had the cold.
At least you were busy while laid up, the pot holders are very nice and will make awesome gifts. I enjoyed the story told with your cards this month.

Mina provides a nice service, doesn't she?! So adorable! That Tea Room looks delightful...wonderful texture on the shell and I think I should crochet some Christmas hot mats.

Nice set of note cards. Love the seashell and Mina keeping your place warm on the sofa. Your hot pads will make nice Christmas gifts. That's one thing I never learned to do.

You are a talented lady, Snap! Your crocheted Christmas wreath hot pads are so cute!! I love the photo of the conch shell, and your cat is beautiful! I think tabbys and calicos are the prettiest of cats. I'm glad you're over your cold and able to participate in the party and enjoy this beautiful time of the year.

Hugs,

Aww they're lovely note cards.
Mina is such a sweet furball cat!
Mina is what my grandchildren call me - don't ask me how it came about - it just did!!!

The wall of photographs really catches the eye. So many things to study. Likewise the shell photo - such an intricate bit of creation. Lovely photos. You put your down time to good use with those cute crocheted hot pads.

Lovely photos! Of course, being a cat lover, my fav is the portrait of Mina, but that seashell is pretty spectacular too. The wreath hotpads are so cute!!
