Antique Bag Cat

I've been quite busy the past few weeks, thank goodness blogger allows you to schedule posts ahead of time.  I wanted to share here because it's quite amazing to me.
This is my first year as cookie mom! We had all of the cookies for our troop in our house!  We have over 30 girls in our troop.  I ordered 465 cases! That's 5,580 packages of cookies!!
So, we had my dad's huge van and trailer full, even the ramp for the trailer had cookies stacked on it along with my vehicle packed to get them all to my house.



I had my Brownie stand by the stacks for scale, it was quite overwhelming to say the least.
But, our troop has blown my away with their selling! I've been non-stop handing out cookies to these girls and we are going to have to place another order before we start our cookie booths in another week.




 Elsa was very diligent to check each box for contaminants, she was very thorough.


Emily found her own cave, this was earlier this week, I was able to move what was left of these from the living room into the classroom.
I've not had much crafting time at all! 

So, I've been trying my hardest to complete the fairly extensive project list I have going of crochet projects.  I have ADD when it comes to crafting.  I'll start something then something else will intrigue me and off I go on another adventure.
So, after compiling my list and seeing how many different things I had started, I thought I need to force myself to finish some before I start new ones.
As you can see below, sometimes I have interference with my work getting done...

But, here I am proud to show you my third cross off on my list.  My own bag cat!
I really loved how my sister's came out so I wanted one for myself.
 An extra bonus was the yarn pooled quite nicely on her dress.  I'm very happy with stripes it gave me.
 I used the same eyes I had for my owl and I think she's quite cute!
