For the first time since 8th grade, I sat down behind a sewing machine and made something. It's the Birdie Sling by Amy Butler and I love it! Love the fabric, love the pattern, love the bag :)

Introducing. . .

On March 24, Casa KiP added two more to our ranks. Meet Molly(left) and Max(right)--Molly named for Molly Weasley and Max for one of my favorite hockey players. They are Abyssinian kittens, they are sister and brother, and they are 4 months old. This is the first time I was able to catch them asleep together where one, the other, or both didn't pop up at the slightest sound.

I have not had kittens in 14 years and the last time it was only me teaching them the rules of the house. Now they have to fit in with DH, Diva, Rage, and a very disgruntled/confused Bailey(our 14 year old Tonkinese). These two are very smart, probably too smart for their own good. Max is a lot bigger and a giant bundle of love and playfulness. Molly is half Max's size and I believe she is working her tiny cuteness so that she can get her own way not only with the humans in the house but also the other cats. She seems to have a bit of "bully" in her as well; this little pint size ball of fur does not hesitate to hiss/growl/confront her brother or Bailey.

I do have evidence of a tentative truce between the three. On Thursday I was able to snap this picture of the three of them sharing the big sunspot in our family room. Apparently all differences can be forgotten when a warm spot is involved :)

We are all very happy(well I wouldn't say BB is "very happy") and are enjoying getting to know these two.
