Where have all the Kitties gone?

In the days of past, when we often had pets, they would be in and out of our lives. I remember when I was a child we had a dog named Snookie who came and went as she pleased, following the neighborhood children and wandering about the neighborhood.

Even as a young married woman with children, our dog Babe, also wandered the neighborhood (even once getting stuck in a neighbors out-house and turning the hood into chaos with ALL the neighbors looking and posting signs, and with the help of the male lab in the hood....we found her in 3 hours) In her latter years she was known as "everyones dog".....

But with cats it's different (for me anyways)...after losing my childhood cat I believe to a bad neighbor with pigeons ( he was killed, the cat, not the neighbor ). And another  cat to just getting lost (I noticed him years later living with people way down the road), that I just couldn't take loosing another to the wilds of the world. So I took to keeping my cats indoors for their safety and my piece of mind.

Let the Wagons roll

Let me say Hello and.......

Welcome to The Purple Gypsy Wagon...
I've been thinking about the many crafts I would like to make and although I don't knit or crochet, I have a huge fascination with all forms of fiber. I do sew many small things but this is my first attempt to work with wool fiber as a whole. I found it fun and very simple...I need to make more!!!
