Finished Objects Friday – Aylah’s Crab and Vancouver Fog

Hurray it’s Friday! I have a lot of mixed feelings today.  One one hand I’m excited because it’s Friday and we have a long weekend here in Aus.  I’m also heading up to visit my parents in Queensland where it will no doubt be warmer and I’ll have lots of relaxing times.

On the other hand the reason I’m going up there is to take my cats up so that my parents can look after them while we undertake some pretty significant renovations in our heritage house.  I’m concerned about how stressed the cats will be on the flight and then getting used to a new house with new people.  And selfishly I’m going to miss them terribly for the next few months.

The great thing is that my parents are both huge cat lovers and they’re very excited to be looking after my furry babies.  They won’t have to worry about their legs getting cold during the cooler months.

Probably should go back and fix the first one up but you know, I’ve moved on to other things 🙂

I just hate having a set of something with one piece missing. Don’t you?

IMG-20130603-00232I ran out of craft eyes so ended up sewing on the pupils instead.  At first I didn’t like it, but now I just think he looks a bit tired.  Or wasted.  Or both.

Hope you all have fabulous weekends!
