Early Work Mercantile Update

First of all, I must thank you all for your encouraging words and good thoughts for Cookie. She is eating again and enjoying her little kitty life and we're thankful.

Early Work Mercantile updated this week! Lots of new goodies there, just in time for Valentine's Day! Here's a peek at my offerings as well as one that didn't quite get completed on time.
Maggie Bononomi Inspired Penny Rug
Kitty Cupid Design by Robin Leuschen
WIP-Another Maggie Design!
I feel a little bit like Dorothy this week, but instead of clicking my heels and chanting "There's no place like home" I'm saying "The dust will be gone. The dust will be gone".
The bad part of remodeling is coming home to a new layer of dust every night. But I'm not complaining. Okay, I kind of am, but I know it will all be worthwhile when it's all done, probably in another three weeks. 
 Foxy has enjoyed checking out their progress every day, especially when it involves rolling in red chalk dust.

Oh....that Foxy is one pretty chalk dust or not! ;o) Love your new offerings - what a sweet little kitty cupid!! And is that a sneak peek of your new vanity??? If so, how on earth did you find one distressed like that??? Can't wait to see your finished re-do....Hopefully I'll get some inspiration for what I need so badly to do! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Hi Roberta...oh my goodness I missed the post on sorry...I feel your pain and also agree with the 'extended' testing. Our Lola is 16 years old and only weighs 7 lbs...if you took her hair off she'd look like a skeleton for sure....she suffers horribly from ear infections and so it's a constant and we can tell when she's being bothered...lethargic, erping up...all sorts of things. It hurts to see them this way doesn't it?

Oh and that little Foxy - reminds me completely of our Lola...if Lola was a kitty that's her!!!!

I had to laugh at your dust from the remodel...goodness what's my excuse!!! LOL

Thanks for such a nice post - again.

I copied your Cranberry Orange recipe...going to try it.

Gorgeous works you have created

I have to agree with Karen..what's my excuse for the dust cause I am not remodeling either. LoL. Beautiful wool pieces! Take care, Janice

Pam at Antique or Not said...

Count me in the "Wish I had an excuse for MY dust" crowd! LOL

So glad that Cookie's doing better; I was worried about that little furbaby!

And I love your new projects...I've got to give wool whirl sometime soon.
