We found a store selling discounted clothing in teddy sizes today! It was a bit high priced, so we couldn't get as much as we would have liked, but we did get a cute top, a pair of pants, and some adorable little slippers. If anyone was disturbed by a kitty shriek at about lunch time, that was what it was about. Really, you would think Brother wants us NAKED!

We have our backing fabric! Lovely yellow backing fabric, and there were seven yards of it, almost enough to back TWO quilts! Happy, happy day! Now if we can just find a bit more in that shade, because we think it would make a lovely binding fabric as well.

Betsy Bear made a wonderful suggestion today. Actually, the idea was so nice we couldn't believe it was Betsy suggesting it. The human has adopted 826 of us, which we are sure is the most teddies adopted by one person. Anyway, the human has a big birthday in 10 months, and the Betsy was saying something about maybe the teddy adoption center would do something nice for the human when she hits 900 teddies adopted. Well, we were thinking, what if we could combine the 900 bear mark and the human's birthday? We are sure it would be fantastic, but who do we need to talk to to make it happen?

We're very sorry about this, and we hope no one has suffered hearing damage. We just ordered another large gift certificate to the teddy adoption center. That brings us to 75 dollars in certificates, and we also have 20 dollars in coupons to help sponsor sibling adoptions. We think you can imagine how Brother took it. We don't know what his problem is, though. We've heard there is a very nice teddy kitty in need of a home. Shouldn't he WANT us to go and rescue his fellow feline?

At least the snow didn't linger. That is one good thing. So we can amuse ourselves hoping out tomorrow, as we were hoping to do. On the bad side, the snow is reminding the human of last year when we had that pesky brother recaptured for a short time, and she is sad. We fear tears will start at any moment.
Monday, January 26, 2015
The snow has started and is coming down hard. So, so annoying. We are now concerned that some evil person in New York has figured out how to divert their bad weather onto us. We just hope the power doesn't go. We are sure the grandhuman will want to tough it out, instead of sensibly fleeing to a cozy hotel.
Sunday, January 25, 2015
We are a bit nervous tonight. We just heard the weather forecast, calling for potential snow tonight, and we heard something that sounds alarmingly like ice falling a bit ago. What if the snow hits now and we loose power while the grandhuman is here? We're sure she'll try to prevent our fleeing to a hotel! We might freeze our fluffy little cotton tails off! Couldn't the snow wait until she is at work and unable to prevent our calling a cab?

The snow should be here soon, and we think we're prepared. We have lots of blankets to hide under, a coupon book for hotels should the power fail, and the number for the local taxi service should we need to flee to a hotel. And we did a bit of checking and learned they charge based on milage, not on number of passengers, which is a relief. We just hope if necessary we can find a hotel who offers Carrot Crunch as a breakfast option instead of that Captain Crunch stuff.
Thursday, January 22, 2015
There is a rumor of snow fast approaching, and we are concerned. What if the power fails? This snow is due over the weekend, when the grandhuman will be away at work for hours! If we loose power while she's not here, the human will have to call a cab to evacuate with us to a warm hotel. Do cabs charge by the passenger? And if so, is there a discount for bears, bunnies and assorted other teddies?

We have some lovely bait now to hopefully lure that rotten Brother back, which will spare us the expense of paying to retrieve him as well. We got two brand new issues of the comic starring that cat he is so fond of. We're sure he'll want to see those, especially since the comic cat has learned to talk. A cat talking, probably a horrible idea, but Brother will likely approve. Now how to let him know we have the comics? We might have to read them ourselves, so he will hear the pages turning, and will come rushing over to rescue the feline comics from our little bunny paws. Just perfect!
Tuesday, January 20, 2015
We went to the movie, as you might have figured if you heard the kitty shrieks. Brother wasn't pleased at all that we saw a film starring a bear, and such a cute little bear too. He is sure it will only lead to us inviting more bears to move in. We probably shouldn't let him know that we are hoping to visit the teddy adoption center soon, in search of more siblings. But we were planning that for a long time! The movie is absolutely not to blame, so he can just stop his complaints and his threats against the local theaters!
Monday, January 19, 2015
We are hoping to ho to a movie tomorrow, and we are already hearing angry kitty shouts about how we can just keep our big bunny feet, and the rest of us as well out of that theater. The movie we're wanting to see stars a bear, and Brother is sure that watching his film will only lead to us wanting to ask this bear to move in. Really, why does he think he has the right to try to control our movie viewing when he doesn't even live here at the moment? And we have read some of the books with this bear already, we hope Brother knows, and we were already thinking about sending this nice bear an invitation to move in and join the family!

We went on a fabric hunt, trying to find that backing fabric we need this afternoon. No luck, but we did have an encounter with a human looking to make doll outfits. Wasn't that just perfect, that the human was planning to make doll outfits and we met her after our lovely experience sewing multiple outfits just a few weeks ago. So now we're hearing kitty shrieks demanding to know why we are conversing with strange humans in fabric aisles, and to stop at once.
Saturday, January 17, 2015
We are happy to announce that we have a new sibling! We met the nicest pink pig named Kendra this afternoon. We have been wanting to find a pig to join our family for years now, and we finally found one! Of course we begged her to move in right away as soon as we spotted her. We are up to 826 siblings. And Brother is shouting about how he is hearing the clicking of little cloven hooves, and what have we dared to allow in the house this time.
Friday, January 16, 2015
We should have known that Brother not complaining was too wonderful a thing to actually happen. Well, he's not complaining about hearing us online, which is nice, but we heard shrieks this evening, when we hopped home with four packets of patterns and a giant spool of thread from the most wonderful sale. But at least he isn't complaining about clacking computer keys. That probably makes him a fourth less annoying anyway. We suppose that is something.
Thursday, January 15, 2015
Perhaps we have finally persuaded Brother to be quiet with his complaints about us being online. He was shouting a bit ago about hearing the keyboard clicking, and demanded to know if we were earning gift certificates to be used to purchase fabric. We promptly told him we were, by watching commercials and evaluating toys for HIM! So if he doesn't want us to earn fabric, then we also won't be learning about fantastic stuff he would love. The shrieks are quiet for now. Here's hoping that continues.

We saw the oddest thing today, a batch of cats who had a collection of reading lamps in their little kitty apartment! We can only assume that this means these cats are READERS! Cats who like books, instead of a cat like brother who seems to have some sort of book phobia and who shouts to back away every time he even senses us looking at a book. We wonder if we could talk to these kitties, and get them to reform Brother as soon as we recapture him?
Tuesday, January 13, 2015
Sorry for the noise. We found a ton of ebooks on quilts, including one on how to make CAT themed quilts in the elibrary the human has been enjoying this morning. Needless to say, Brother didn't take our library find well, and he is shouting at us to back away from the computer and the tablets at once. We really don't know what his problem is. Our teddy cat siblings think cat themed quilts are a lovely idea!
Monday, January 12, 2015
The relative is feeling better, so we might head for the teddy adoption center soon, instead of having to pay a sick visit. But Brother is still ranting. Honestly, nothing makes him happy. First he complains we might visit a sick relation, and then he complains that we probably won't have to, and might go somewhere else instead. Will that cat ever be satisfied?
Sunday, January 11, 2015
One of the human's relations is ill, so we are possibly going to be making a little trip for visiting duty at some point this week. We are hearing the kitty shrieks now, because this relative lives near a genealogy archive AND several lovely fabric places. And then there is the fact the last time we had to call on this ill relation, several years ago, Brother's food dish, and both of his back up food dishes went empty, and we nearly got to serve him a SALAD!
Saturday, January 10, 2015
Well, we hopped back to the store and returned the wrong fabric, but we could not find the bolt of fabric we actually need, and that we were sure we bought. So annoying. Brother had to have crept in and hid it from us. We should have checked the fabric bolts for grey cat hairs. So now we must hop to another store to find the proper fabric. So annoying and it cuts into our sewing time terribly!
Friday, January 9, 2015
We hopped to the store today and bought fabric to back three quilts. Eighteen yards total, six yards per quilt in purple, blue and a dusty yellow. We are sure that we purchased yellow. Only, when we got home and checked the fabric, it is PEACH! PEACH! That was not the color we selected, and we can only assume that Brother brother somehow figured a way to switch the fabrics out while we were having lunch. So now me must hop back to the store to get the correct fabric tomorrow. How annoying!
Thursday, January 8, 2015
Almost forgot to update the sibling count. Two more teddies moved in over the holidays, bringing us up to 825 siblings. You don't want to know how brother reacted to that number. Really, it was terribly embarrassing to have him shouting so loudly.
Wednesday, January 7, 2015
It's nippy out today, so we weren't able to hop out to hunt down that terrible, awful cat. We have, however, started working out a few calculations on fabric needed for backing a number of quilts that are almost ready to be assembled, and have gone through our special quilting thread selection as well, to try to see what other colors we might need. We now have a list of purchases we need to make, and isn't it so nice, the pet place by the archive that we think Brother might be hiding at is also next to a place with FABRIC! We can recapture him, and then force him to spend the next few hours having to help us drag fabric to a cutting table and carefully weed through a million shades of thread to find the ones we need! Won't he just love that?
Tuesday, January 6, 2015
We just learned that there is a pet store rather close to the genealogy archive too, and now we're wondering if Brother might be hiding there. We thought he was lurking at the place near the teddy adoption center, thinking that we would never suspect him of being so near a place he finds so alarming, but with how big a fit he has pitched over the threat of the family tree, maybe he might think the pet place near the archive is safer, and that we would absolutely never think of him being there. We might have to check both places. Thank goodness they are on the same bus line.
Monday, January 5, 2015
We got three lovely, gigantic spools of thread this afternoon, and we would like to offer our apologies to anyone who was disturbed by the noise. Brother wasn't pleased, both by the thread purchases, and by the fact that we're hoping to start sewing together this quilt with little cats appliqued into each square soon. He's accused us of trying to make it look like cats are accomplices to our sewing. We don't see what the problem is. The teddy cats who live here have been very nice and helpful. Why can't Brother be as cooperative as them?
Sunday, January 4, 2015
We're sorry if shouts woke anyone this morning. Brother was being a pain again, and started shouting when we hopped off for a country visit this morning bright and early. So annoying and he has absolutely no right to complain after how he deserted us. We have a perfect right to do what we want and hop where we want, and he has no right to try to stop us! We are good bunnies. We stayed at home where we belong, unlike that deserter of a feline.
We got seven lovely yards of fabric today, and two nice little spools of thread. And when we got home, we did a bit of checking, and it seems that the shade of pink thread we already had is wrong, so we're considering hopping back tomorrow to purchase a giant pink thread spool. And possibly more fabric. And there are the kitty shrieks again. You would really think Brother would be getting tired of yelling so, wouldn't you?
Friday, January 2, 2015
We're hoping to go fabric shopping tomorrow, to get that binding material, and then maybe a bit more material to construct backing so we can start working on a few more quilts. That would be really good to have on hand. And we've been thinking, and have realized that we need a bit more special quilting thread as well, which means we will need to go to a second store. We're sensing a whole lot of shopping and fabric in our future!
Thursday, January 1, 2015
The grandhuman is talking about taking a few days off, and possibly sitting around READING! We have the best idea to convince her that this reading would be so much more fun in the cozy country or possibly in the mountains. Wouldn't Brother be just so annoyed if we managed to talk her into that? And if we manage to recapture him by then, he can go WITH us!
Brother is going to be so annoyed! The grandhuman is enjoying the tablet we helped the human obtain. We have downloaded a bunch of books, and the human is talking up how much fun it would be to go to the cozy country and snuggle up for hours of reading pleasure. We're sensing lovely trips to the country in our futures, and maybe the mountains as well. Won't that just drive brother CRAZY?
