Black Cat Crossing

Welcome to my stop in the
Black Cat Crossing Blog Hop
sponsored by


Everyone is welcome to visit.
It's really not haunted.


Except maybe this spider....
yuck


The black cat family is arriving to make this house a home.


Add a little furniture


and a house becomes a home


The fabric in the house and furniture is Maywood Studio Black Cat Crossing.



The house was made with a few modifications from McCall's pattern 8346 from the year 1982.

Thank you Madame Samm and Wendy for this wicked hop!



Please visit the other wicked blogs of the day and leave lots of wickedly wonderful comments:

Sorry for the short post.
The wedding last weekend ( see below) has me in overdrive...
