This little paw print cosy for a take-away coffee mug has been occupying me the last few days, whenever I’ve sat down to take advantage of the bright sunny weather. I haven’t done any tapestry crochet for ages, so really enjoyed practising my rusty skills. More about where the pattern and kit came from very soon…. I have to take a little black cat, with a powder puff tail, to the vet shortly so this is a very quick post.
I’ve still got three more chapters of As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning by Laurie Lee to read! I’ve been out a lot recently, so no time for reading before lights out. I have started a new audio book though; The State We’re In by Adele Parks. This is ticking all the boxes so far, with time jumping all over the decades, seemingly unconnected characters and a dying man trying to connect with someone he’s neglected for 30 odd years. It’s my kind of book. Easy come, easy go and it’s always enjoyable trying to work out who’s who and why and what.
If you’d like to share what you’re making and reading every Wednesday too, leave a link in the comments. Don’t forget to link back to this post on your blog, and use #yarningalong on social media, so others can find us and join us in Yarning Along.
Hope your kitty is going to be okay????
He’s fine, just a routine dab of this and swallow that.
Oh good. Not a serious illness, then. :)
Poor moggy, hope he is alright soon.
He’s absolutely fine. Just a few routine things.
That is a cute make! Hope everything is ok with your cat.
I’m with you on the reading; I seem to have been reading The Miniaturist for ever!

It’s not like me at all. I read a book a week unless it’s of mega length. This has teeny font and I tend to only read a chapter at a time too.
It’s very cute isn’t it? There’s another design to do too.
Thanks for your link.
Aww you’ll have to give him a good fuss when he comes home. My cats hate the vets.
He’s very mellow, strolled back out of the carrier, ate some food and went to the garden.
Here is my book pick! Have a good week!
Thank you! You too
Your tapestry crochet is so neat, I always fail miserably when I try it!
Thank you, just practise and I bet yours will be fab in no time. It’s getting the tension right with the inactive yarn along the top isn’t it?
It must be! Thanks, I’m busy with other projects but sure I will be trying it again soon.
