So my new kitty is not home yet...apparently there was some mis-communication, and she was not spayed as planned, so the shelter workers did not drop her off on Saturday. I was less than pleased.
But coming to work on Monday was fun...because I got a stash delivery!!! I had my order from Stitching Bits & Bobs delivered to work instead of home. (DH is totally supportive of my hobby, but I still feel guilty sometimes.) Anyway, I got:
