Wednesdays, Ginny from small things invites us to post what we are reading and making. This invitation is for all who read and make things with yarn so grab a yarn along button and jump right in. Meanwhile enjoy my completed cat mat. It is one of two and I am making Β for two special cats . You know who you are! Pattern for abstract cats which is less complicated than it looks is here.
The book I am reading is the Japanese phrasebook and dictionary from lonely planet. I am hoping to go on a holiday to Japan one day with my son and my goal is to book into a hotel or homestay starting in Tokyo and then just explore.Β 
Lastly are the cupcakes I am working on to help pay the bills which will be sold at end of year in Melbourne Markets. I am working on completing the patterns and plan to post them on my free patterns page.

  4. I do believe my head just exploded. Cupcakes AND Cats AND Books?!?!??! This post has EVERYTHING!!!!! If there were a tiny Wonder Woman in the picture, I’d never leave here. EVER. I love that cat mat. Seriously. I may have to take a stab at knitting and make those. Stab being the operative word in that sentence.

  5. You are welcome. Thank you for liking my cupcakes. I don’t know who made the cat pattern up but they are very clever. It is easy to make and a great gift for pussy cat lovers.:)

  6. HaHa! No I am not that clever but sometimes traveling on the tram I listen to talking books on my smartie pants phone and knit or crochet. Talking books are good, but for me anyway they are not the complete experience like a “real” book. πŸ™‚
