How to Manage Time

Oh yeah, it's Advent and two weeks to Christmas.
Plenty to do. Many places to be.

What's a pastor to do?

Make a cat stuffie.

Let's say you are trawling at the Rescue Mission and find an Eileen Fisher Italian wool sweater for a buck. The sweater is in good condition except for the big red stain. I washed the sweater in hot water then dried the shrinking gray wool in the clothes dryer. The wool became dense and very soft with a great nubby texture, perfect for a cat stuffie.

Eyes, mouth, whiskers and arms are next.

Now, back to serious theological thingies.

Grateful to be here,

St. Casserole

Now more than ever I understand why you are one of my very favourite bloggers....such kindred spiritedness (if such a term exists) is something to treasure! With all the same pressures, I spent much of today playing with my India photos!

You are the very, very best!

Oh I am loving the craftiness!

Um...I'm very sure its adorable and all, but what in the name of all that is good and holy is a cat stuffie?

(I'm so not a cat person!)

That is so cool -- you felted something!!! and recycled... and something for someone to love and enjoy! All wrapped into one!

I think it is the perfect thing to do during Advent.

Now I need to look up what kind of brand name that sweater was....
