Mischief and Mayhem


It's alive, it's alive!!!
I just finished up my trade from my fiber art trader's group. The theme was monsters, Dr. Frankenstein style. We could use body parts and come up with our own creatures. Wohahahahhaha!!!




I love a challenge! I decided to do my take on Macbeth's poem with some boil and bubble and got into trouble. lol Of course I used a recipe! I used:

eye of newt and toe of frog, wool of bat and tongue of dog, adder's fork and blind worm's sting, lizard's leg and howlet's wing. Macbeth(IV, i, 14-15)

I have yet to name this creature of the night! Any ideas? I don't think "Fluffy" cuts it. LOL


Speaking of trouble. There was yet more Mischief and Mayhem on the loose! I went into the bathroom to discover a hole in the shower curtain. Ahemmm..... which one of you did this! Was it Mischief or Mayhem? Oh, Oh.....



I didn't do it. It was Shredder (Cheddar)!


(Cheddar escapes) Busted!


and what about Bob? I have yet to post a photo of our latest cat. (the cream colored one, probably Honey's daddy) He is feral, so to get a photo has been a bit in the making. He is missing his tail, so hence the name Bob. He usually hangs outside with Tang. I am hoping to catch him one day so that we can have the rest of his tail bobbed and get him neutered.

Well, today's list, I shall have to go shopping for a water proof chainmail shower curtain. I just wonder what other shenanigans will go on while I am gone.

Love your one-eyed monster. I found some bead eyes and a beak at the thrift store yesterday. Don't know if I will have time to "get 'er done" for the trade but I love yours.

Love your adorable monster creation. Sorry to hear about the mischief caused by your adorable fur baby. I hope you found the chain mail shower curtain. TOO funny.

Sorry I'm late this week, especially since I'm #2. Company caused the lateness, especially since YOU were so early posting this week.

Bhu sez he is wantin' to come visit with ur kittehs fur a "tutoring seshun on makin' trubble." Hmmmmm.

The only shower curtain I know that doesn't shred is the cotton duck one. It's also super earth-friendly cuz U can throw it in the washer and when it gets yucky!

Many, many kudos and very big HUGS for taking the time and dollars to neuter your feral kittehs! It is a very loving thing to do and you are a very big LOVEE! xxoo

How about that "hopping, fluffy eyeball that flew away"? Kind of long for a name...I see you have feral cats too---I feed them every morning and my other neighbor at night...there's one male that needs to be neutered because he's responsible for a pregnant female that we have not been able to catch the last time we took a batch to the Vet...guess we'll have more kittens soon...

haha, that is a funny name for the monster. The species I think is an amphibious raptor! lol

Great monster! Gotta love those little furbabies anyway!

Ohhh Snap said...

Great monster! I also love the cat tales. I have to store my rovings in places cats don't like to go or in bins otherwise some of them look like they have grown beards. They espcially love my lovely rusty alpaca.

I left a One Beautiful Blog Award for you on my blog. Thanks for all the inspiration :D.

You've created a scary monster alright. I might be afraid if that were to come in the mail. Great job!!
