Gifties for The Crew


So that wonderful wonderful Rene over at It's all about the cats! emailed me a while back and mentioned ever since my plea for help she has been thinking about micro bead pillows and she saw one at her local JoAnn store.  Well I ran right down to mine (OK, I drove, it is 40 minutes away after all) and alas mine did not have any.  So right then and there I decided to make one (or four) for The Crew.  So I asked the staff if they sold micro beads.  Alas they had no idea what I was talking about so I went on line and found some on sale at Amazon, but it was fairly expensive for a small amount.  I figured it would end up being cheaper to buy one of those micro bead animals for sale everywhere and take it apart for the beads. 

Well I had mentioned this to Rene, and she said she could find them all the time at her local thrift store.  I haven't had any luck finding anything other then animals not good for laying on.  (yes, my husband and I both squeeze the pillows when we run into displays looking for micro bead pillows and don't think for a second it didn't amuse me to no end to imagine Rene doing the same)

Well I got an email saying she had found some, she washed them up and sent them over.  I got it on Tuesday (it arrived on Monday) and this is what occurred... well this is what occurred after I read the really cute card from Rene saying she hoped for pictures!! :)
Fleurp: what's this?
It's squishy..
and does not smell like me
everything MUST smell like me
I shall make it smell like me..
This is actually really fun!!
Jack & Skippy wondering what she is doing
This is MINE! 
Hey, that worked.
puppy dog pretending to be Flat Jack
Kit: um, this dog isn't for laying on..
Fleurp: Hey, what's going on over there?
Jack: this thing has feathers..
Fleurp: this thing doesn't smell like me either..
SPARKLE BALL!
Feather fun (this is a mirror shot)
I hosied it.
a few teeth marks for good measure
and a couple of rabbit kicks..
oh wonderful feather toy, where have you been all my life
Skippy: since she is busy, I'll just make myself comfortable
But Skippy, that's mine too..
Muffin loved the sock toy.  she's kinda a niphead
Fleurp isn't mean, she is just like a little kid who thinks everything belongs to them and they have no concept of if it is all theirs that means no one else gets any.

I do have some interesting fabric to make a pillow with and will use the dog toy to fill it.  I'll stuff the dog with fiberfill and bring it down to the shelter.

a little while later, we had this..

  1. Oh thank you for the bounty of photos! It seems Fleurp is like Tucker in that "everything" is hers! I never imagined the square pillow would be accepted as is!

    Thanks for sharing. I'm glad everything arrived safely.

  5. 2 observations:
    1st, we may be louder, but people in Maine seem to be every bit as crazy as people in Texas. (Referencing running around squeezing random toys.)

    2nd, I just love that universal cat "Smell Down Smack Down" when something doesn't have the appropriate aroma.

  9. I love how protective Fleurp is of her pillow. My late cat Star had a pillow like that, and he would knead it for hours until he went into a drooling, crazy-eyed trance. Weirdest thing.
