Crochet Cat Nest....Is That You Audrey???








Finished the Cat Nest the other day...

Tried to take some photos...

It just kinda laid there...

All limp...

And flat looking...

A light bulb went off in my head!!

I could use my Mom's stuffed cat...that I have kept since she died...

And...Miss V loves playing with it♥️

First one in the nest...

is a baby Tiger...

Then...

Gosh...

That looks like Audrey....One of Deb's cats...over at "Just Cats"....**wink wink**
 










I used Bernat Baby Blanket yarn...

Almost like a chenille...

Very soft and cosy...

But...

If the truth be known...

I would just do a small round disc next time...

Kinda floppy...

Not sure if my daughters cats went inside...

Or just laid on it folded...

She sent me a picture of her Pixie laying on it...

Kinda blurry...

Will try and get a better one!!
 
         Meanwhile....after her bath...scrubbed up...shampooed...blowdry and styling...

                        Miss V loves to pamper her lips...

                   With some of Nana's EOS lip balm...see it there in her hand!

         Loves to open it...apply liberally...give me a few swipes...and screw the top back on ♥️

                  Hope you are all having a great day...

                          Still cold here...sun out this afternoon...lazzzzeeee day here!

                                   Gonna have homemade burgers and fries for dinner...can hardly wait!

                         Enjoy the rest of your day...

                                       Cheers!   :o)

  1. Now I want to learn to crochet so I can make a cat nest. Norbert would scorn it but our other cat, Sheldon would love it.

    Vivian's eyelashes! She is going to break some hearts.

  2. I'm laughing here, Linda. That stuffed cat is so funny and wouldn't you know it, she does look like Audacious Audrey. She'd be the first one in there, head first. I love the cat nest. Maybe you can go into business and I'll be your first customer. ha! Just what you need, eh? Something more to do. haha! Looks like Vi is going to have fun with nana's makeup soon. This is just the start. We are having the same dinner tonight...veggie burger for me. That's comfort food all the way. Tomorrow will be warm so hope you get out and enjoy it. Hugs

  3. A cat nest? Now that's something new. I must look for that lipgloss. I hear it's great but the packaging is a little large for my purse. Vivian looks adorable with her big eyes. It's been a sunny but frigid day here but mild and rain for the next 2 days. Have a nice evening.

  5. Ooh, I can imagine a much larger nest for lying on the floor in front of the fire... snuggled in.
    That is gorgeous. So is the Little Miss... I bet you have a blast!
    My god-daughter brought me home made soup... and I'll make some slaw and hush puppies.
    Enjoy the sun, Linda (smile)

    5. Oh dear.....hate when that happens!
      You sound very much occupied.....and busy!
      I am crocheting, after eating a HUGE burger!
      You should check out Deb's blog.....JUST CATS!
      A fellow Canadian.....with a great sense of humour.....

    6. Yes I will - I remember you recommended I visited Deb once before and thanks for reminding me.
      So you reckon she might be able to put up with my sense of humour . . . oh silly question, I guess if you can she can . . . . lol
      Crocheting sounds as if it is therapeutic, especially after eating a huge burger . . . . crumbs you spelled humour with a u ~ so Canadian typewriters have a u then . . . . lol

  8. Cute nest! Reminds me of those felted ones I got. I bet if Lissa showed her cats they could go inside, that they would burrow down in there. We almost had burgers for dinner but I changed it to salmon at the last minute. Maybe Monday....with fries, too...yum.

  15. Love the nest, my daughter's two cats would love it, they always greet me when I arrive for a visit. Miss V. and the lip balm photo is too cute! Busy day for us with a political gathering and some shopping. The boyfriend made stir fry for dinner, very tasty. Have a nice rest of the weekend, LSK. :)

  16. A cat nest looks fun to me. My orange cat that likes to crawl under the covers from time to time. Oreo not so much
    The child, as usual, is looking sweet.

  20. Maybe it needs some kind of cardboard from the inside to make it look like a box so that the kittens would know what it is for :)

    1. Hi Dez....
      The cats are supposed to know enough to go inside!
      I must ask Lissa if they have done that!
      How are you doing?
