KITTY CAT EXTRAVAGANZA 1 - MY BOUNCY JELLY FISH TOY
I have a friend who is totally cat crazy and she has asked me to make a whole load of kitty cat things.. i.e things all cat inspired. I have used as many free patterns as I could find, and if I found a chart, then I’ve worked the chart and written my notes down.
I have a long list of things kitty cat that I plan on making, so I am very confidently putting this blog down as “1”.

I love art and craft - and am grateful for this hobby that keeps me busy and out of 'mischief'.
We (as a family) are also staunch protectors of stray animals and will continue to do our bit to make this a safe world for them.
We strongly believe in R-R-R and several of my projects will show this.
