A Kiki for Benjamin

Meow! I've been anxiously waiting for you, Benjamin.

I am made from yarn purchased in Jerusalem, Israel.
Especially for you.

Just like you, I am one of a kind.
I was supposed to be a sweater,
but when your Auntie Sheri saw my pattern in a book...
she thought we would be good together.
I'll (hopefully) last a lot longer than a sweater anyway!
I am the first yarn toy that your Auntie Sheri ever attempted.

Well, better be going.
Auntie Sheri is about to stitch a little
"Knit with Loving Stitches"
tag on me
and then I'll be on my way!

That is just adorable!! Baby will love it!

Wow, you have been doing a lot of blogging lately. I'm so glad to read your thoughts. Thanks for sharing them.

I have only sat out on my patio once this summer. Its either too cold or too hot for me. However my flowers seem to like the summer--they are blooming in profusion.

Enjoy today--it looks mild--haven't been out in it yet, however.

Be blessed

I just read your post called "substandard." I feel that way every time I do a post! I think everyone feels that way sometimes. You are such a GREAT writer - you are very good at expressing yourself!! I love all of your posts!
Congrats on the new baby joining your family!
Summer is flying by!!!!
