A week of EVENTS ....Paper Ladies, Ms Elfie and a post from Sumo


I can hardly believe I got her done, it took  days of stitching and cat sitting...
but here she is....She is most certainly my Favourite PAPER LADY
of the year....Today I will work on completing the pattern that Cori
and I will have ready by Monday....

I made her mostly in cashmere wool and I have to say, although more
time consuming, the results speak for themselves...
( more pics later, I completed it very early this am- the sun was not even up
just a lot of stars lol) 



Ms Elfie was a bit of help but mostly she kept us in stitches as you will see in the photos proceeding... So on Day 5 Ms Elfie has had a pretty busy time keeping up with Sumo and T-cup...
she is always trying to sew something.... Be sure to check on Cori tomorrow as her Elfie will no doubt be preparing for the holidays which seem to be approaching far quicker than the past....
How is that???? 



And once upon a time from the voice of SUMO..... He wanted to share what a typical day looks like from his perspective...



Hello, my name is SUMO, a week ago today, my Mummy and Pappy, came to pick me
up and bring me to my forever home. As you can see I am very happy. 
They have made my new home very comfortable, they feed me delicious food,
they have lots of toys for me to play with and my Mummy loves to take photos of me
all the time. pssst I love that about her. 

She has been teaching me a lot of things and she makes me laugh as she gets
pretty excited when I get things correct....

Let me show you...


I want you to know I have a serious side to me too, ohhhh and I almost forgot
I love my big sister T-cup. She lets me play with her now and sleep with her too
and she loves to chase me down the hallway, I love her, love her.....
and even though she may not have said anything just yet...
I think she loves me too...





Yesterday Mummy was busy with writing out some Christmas cards to her
friends and family....she asked me if I knew which photo was me...
OF course I did, I even pointed to ME and showed her..
She got tears in her eyes.....NOT sure what that was about......

Then we had some lessons, she wants me to learn the alphabet...so
I studied it for a few minutes ....


And then Mummy asked me if I could find the S as S in Sumo..
Of course that was so easy....Ohhhh then she teared up again..
my Mummy tears up a lot ....I think I make her so happy,
they are happy tears right?....





She has to feed the birds each day, she won't let me outside, so I just watch her
and wait for her to come back so we can sit on the window bench and watch the birds.
One of my favourite things to do with her each morning...
I miss her when she is not with me every waking hour....



Watching the birds kind of tuckers me out a bit....so I may have to take a nap
for now, hope you don't mind....I am sure my Mummy will have more to show
you in a couple of days...


  I am growing so fast, I need to sleep as my Mummy says....I think it is because she has so many
things to do and can't do them when she is busy with me.... and she tries to wipe those tears again..
She thinks I don't see her, but I do...and I try to lick them away at times...I think she still misses the sister I never met, but I know she must of loved her a lot, there are photos of her in our home.  I hope I can make her happy like Sumatra and T-cup do. I am really doing my best....

I will pretend I am sleeping so she can make her cookie dough today and make some lemon curd for her shortbread tarts...not sure what any of that is...but she seemed pretty happy and eager to get started..... shhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  1. You don't get any sweeter than this, now I'm saying this forgetting that another one is coming. So that would just double it, and that will be when the real fun and laughter will come. I'm smiling just thinking about it. Poor Christmas tree.

  4. What a great little student you have! He has the most amazing teacher... and it shows. Your post is adorable. I can't believe how much he is changing. He has gotten so much darker in just one week as his hair continues to grow in. I had to laugh out loud at his laughing picture.... he sure does love the camera! You two make a perfect pair, and your picture of T-cup is gorgeous too. I must get busy on my Paper Lady, YOURS is simply breathtaking. xx
