I'm still here

I can't believe how long it's been since I've posted. Life just seems to have it's own plans regardless of mine sometimes. 

In my absence I've somehow managed to become the 'crazy cat lady.' We already had two cats that are house cats. We live out in the country and wanted a cat for outside. A stray that hangs around my Mom's house had kittens so we decided to take two of them. In the meantime a cat and her kittens started showing up at the office. I decided to try to catch her and the kittens in order to get everyone fixed. Well, we caught her and one of her kittens.

It turns out that the Mama cat was pregnant again and repaid my kindness by having three more kittens!! We've now got 9 cats and one of those outside cats is also pregnant. I don't even know when she went into heat. I've managed to have two of the cats fixed, but how did I even get into this?

Anyway, in my world if crafting, I've fallen in love with cross stitch all over again. I've even started a channel on YouTube for my flosstube videos. You can check it out if your interested. My channel is Taryn Verleye.

One of the projects I've been working on is a set of free patterns from Brooke's Books. It's her Animal Advent Calendar.

How cute is that? There's a set of 25 animals and they're adorable. And, they're free! 

I've also made a few needle minders to go with what I'm doing. 

They're listed in my etsy shop if you think you would like one. 

I'll be back sooner with more updates.
