I can hardly believe that I've been here six days! Here are the beautiful girls I'm visiting while my daughter and her companion are in San Diego for Comic-Con.
Both are long-hair tortoiseshell cats. And have those yellow/gold eyes. Really pretty.
They've been very helpful, particularly Nikita, who rearranges my serger thread for me every night and at least once a day. Callisto has hardly left my side, but is content to watch, no technical assistance from this one!
Friday was their first birthday, so I gave them the most exotic sounding food in the cupboard. Meow Mix chicken with shrimp. Yum. I mean, gone in 60 seconds...I felt kind of bad I did not have ice cream and cake!
Hungry! I also met a girl friend for dinner one night at Joe's Crab Shack. Such good seafood and great atmosphere.
And what would my week be without a little fabric shopping :-) Ft. Myers has a really nice Holly Lobby not far from my daughter's home in Gateway. I had a blast - managed to buy 23 yards of fabric, new dressmaking shears, thread, a cute tape measure, and nice seam ripper.
The calico 'wall' of ditsies, tonals, and blends is good and similar to JoAnns. But the calico selection on the floor is different. So many interesting prints, arranged by color, and easy to shop with the bolts at table level. They also have a decent selection of solid broadcloth, canvas, duck cloth, and denim. Had to wrench myself away...I can always go back, right?
Home on Tuesday, lots of projects to share - Ciao! Coco
