    It looks to me like your friend’s cat has found a forever home with you! He looks very content. I think my favorite picture is Leo’s hat. I, too, love the fabric for Ivy’s dress. Enjoy your restful weekend. Here we are cleaning and getting ready for house guest to arrive on Sunday. It has been a busy summer. Another inch of rain today!
