The kitten

Collectables today has a new series of dolls. Well they are really tiny little kittens, just barely big enough to cover your palm. They are darling, and as I didn't get any christmas this year, I decided to get me this series of kittens.
  The first one arrived tonight. A little yellow tabby. I was disappointed in the fur, or should I say the lack thereof. So I dug out a mohair skin just the right color to match her, and started clipping a piece to fit her head. Then as she arrived with no tail, I made her a new one ,from another little piece of lambs wool. The kittens should be a lot of fun to dress.
  So now I have to name her. I don't think I can ever repay you.
 I'll see how it goes.

And now we have snow!

I was out in it yesterday, and it was waist deep. That is a lot of snow. I need to get it off a couple of buildings, but it's also very cold. Too cold to be out waiding in snow and trying to pull it off the roof. My hands get so cold in such a short time, I can't feel them.
So, I'll have to wait to get the job done at a later time.
Just so you can enjoy what I'm not... here are the pictures.
