Ebby comes home...! A crazy, crazy day. The kind you aren't expecting...ya. People in and out all day, and then 2 of my 5 offspring arriving and asking "what's for supper"?

And of course that came right in conjuction with my new black cat...*VBS* And she's gorgeous...not a petite gal by any means, but she has a beautiful face and nicely shaped head. Almost has the look of a Siamese in the shape of her head. She's spent the majority of her hours here(so far) under the end table, behind the couch or under the bed. She's the only one who doesn' know what this is "all about". But she did come out to wander around abit and let me pet her and scratch her ears, and I think we are going to be just fine...*VBS*

I am thrilled for you, Finn---new place and all those people around so no wonder she is hiding. Heck, my goofy girls hides from me and she has lived here for 9 years!!

Maybe once she knows this will all be fine she will let you get some pictures of her in her new digs.

Patti said...

I'm so happy you are going to have some companionship! She will be adjusted before you know it. I hope she realizes how very lucky she is to have you for her new "mom". Looking forward to more pictures of the beautiful lady.

I'd love to have a cat again, but I don't think one would mix too well with the dogs. You will be friends once the food bowl comes out a few times.

Hedgehog said...

Very cute little cats to celebrate your new cat!!

Fiona said...

Oh, yay, Ebby is home! I'm sure after a few days of getting used to her new digs, she will assume ownership of the place!!! Absolutely love the cat quilt!

Tazzie said...

Your cat quilt is just lovely, and I'm so happy Ebby has made it 'home'. I predict it won't be long before you're both the very best of friends.

How lucky Ebby is to come to your house and be your owner !
You know, you never own a cat, it owns you :-)
Oh Finn - every time I look at your big stitch quilting I get a wide smile on my face. I need to finish my Watermelon quilt so I can do some big stitches too. Yours looks sooo good !!

Glad Ebony is home with you now. It'll just take awhile for her to adjust, but that's amazing she's already coming out for loving!

Nancy said...

I'm so excited for you and Ebby. She'll settle in and soon will be coming out more often for cuddles and belly rubs. (((HUGS))) to you and Ebby from me and Agatha, Fluffy, Charlie, Sam, and George. :-)

Yippee!! It will be fun for all of us to get to know Ebby now that she is home with you. She'll be posing for pictures in no time. I'm glad you two found each other *s*

Gail said...

Did you make that quilt just for your new friend? Love the quilt (is it a pattern, my mother would love that!)Enjoy your Ebby, she will be a close companion in no time at all.

Darcie said...

Ebby's probably thinking "Holy cow. I thought this chick was retired...she's busier than my other people." ;-) You'll be a cozy pair pretty soon. What do the rest of your children and grands think of your Ebby?

Shelina said...

It is so sweet that all those people are coming around to seeing the new addition to your family.

Maggie Ann said...

Love your cat quilt!! And how lucky/blessed you are getting a cat companion. Oh, how I love to hear a cat purr around your feet. Enjoy for me too ..ok?

McIrish Annie said...

how exciting!! I hope that Ebby and you settle in quickly. have finally caught up and love your story about school, much of which was the same for me! the desks with the pencil tray, the walking to and from school for lunch. those are great memories. also love the Utility quilting will definitely use that on a few that I want to get done. i have started to gravitate to hand work at night and afternoons during recuperation. very calming.

i am back on my feet. working part time but getting home early afternoon to hand quilt and watch "ellen" or Rachel Ray with a cup of tea before DH gets home.

Pam said...

How wonderful for you!!!

Rabbit Stitchings said...

One Lucky little kitty or maybe not so little from what ya say tee hee... but lucky!

I like your cat quilt too :O)... did you make that just or ebby?

Lois R. said...

Congrats on your new friend. I had a new nickname that I was going to suggest for her, but I guess "Boney" doesn't apply? Hee hee!

Love the cat quilt -- hmm... might be fun to free piece...

Can't wait to see pics of the new gal.

sharon b said...

Ebby will be fine.. Give her a couple of nights to explore and she'll be eaten out of your hand..Love your cats.. You are sooooo creative.. VBS.. to you gal.. Have a great time with new quilt buddy..

Abandoned in Pasadena said...

Well, that's a good sign that she came out and let you pet her. Once the flurry of people are gone she will be more relaxed in her new surroundings.

Dawn said...

Oh Finn, how wonderful! Ebby couldn't have ended up in a better home!

Screen Door said...

Congrats on the new part of your family... She doesn't realize it... but it's her lucky day!!!!
