Craftster Swaps

I've been making jewellery for the Craftster ongoing wish swap 13 - someone wanted domino pendants so I made her a cherry one, a bluebird and a cherryblossom one (all her favourites), and another wanted some extra-long necklaces, so I made her three and I'm proud to say that I resisted the temptation to invest in new craft supplies for all of these and have used my craft stash! Yay! I'm on a craft diet at the moment and have been resisting the draw to the craft shop (I can hear it calling to me.....) beads, paints, yarn, stuff......I start a new job the middle of September and I envisage a pay drought somewhere up the line, so I'm trying to save a bit of cash!

And look at the awesome crochet roll I received this week! I just love the geisha fabric. I think I must be the Imelda Marcos of hookers, I figure I have about 20 hooks in total! Some are inherited, some have been given to me, and some (like the bamboo hooks and the jazzy coloured ones) I've treated myself to! Am I being greedy?? Or do I have a problem *hello, my name is Samsara, and I am a hook whore!* Hey, who cares!

I had a traumatic morning today. My youngest kitty, Pippin, came in limping! She was holding her leg up and it seemed quite swollen, and she was breathing fast. I had heard a kerfuffle at the catflag earlier and assumed she had been chased in by the neighbourhood bully. I decided to make an appointment for her to get checked out, and when I rang the vets, they said I should bring her in straight away because she may have been hit by a car and could have internal bleeding! I totally freaked out and had to borrow a cat box from a neighbour because I had lent mine to my sister. I rushed her up to the vets, but she had just bruised her leg! *Sighes with relief* One quick jab later and back I went with one squalling kitty!
