Cats, hats and Roses

Oh thank goodness the weekend is here at last! After working Monday to Friday I am feeling tired and worn out, in fact I feel very much like Hope, my cat looks!

Hope, had to have her back leg amputated a few months ago, as she had cancer in it and it had crushed the bones, She made a full recovery but after a day of being outside she gets shattered! I love the picture below we call it "Hope the one legged cat" ;)

Today I was at my stitch'n'bitch group, where I got to show the women my "Pixie Love" hat, I started this hat last week at the meeting and the ladies had a great giggle thinking that it looked like a certain body part warmer!!
This hat is my own pattern, it has six different crochet stitches in it!

I love the flower and beading detail

After the stitch group I began walking back - the heavens opened and I got drenched! When I finally got home I was feeling down and out and looked like a drowned rat! But Morgan had set up the sitting room with blankets, pillows and candles and had gotten me these beautiful roses

How lucky am I to have such a thoughtful and romantic husband!

So guys, what are your plans for the weekend? whatever they are I hope you have better weather then me here in Galway!
