Chester Goes Topless!

Hello Everybody!

I expect you have all had a wonderful weekend with wall to wall sunshine?  I know I have!  A wonderful walk around Salcome on the Kingsbridge Estuary, with 270 degree views from Snapes Head up, down and along the river.  Absolutely stunning!  And a day in the garden today topped off with a few G &T's in the late afternoon sunshine (wine ran out!!).  Ignore any typing errors please!

Well Chester was enjoying the sunny weather too!  He fancied a drive out in Rob's Mazda with the top down.


Come on then Chester, start her up!


Oh dear Chester!  Don't like the look of all that smoke!  Better make sure there is nothing wrong before you drive off!


Have you checked the
oil?


 Better book it in for a service when you get back!


Not looking too bad now!
Have a safe journey Chester!
Byee!

Just in case any of you are wondering who Chester is, I have written a page 'Chester the Extreme Crochet Cat' on my blog explaining how and what he is made from.  If you click on this link it should take you straight to it http://www.fiddlyfingers.blogspot.co.uk/p/chester-extreme-crochet-cat.html I am using him to promote Extreme Crochet workshops.  If you would be interested in holding a workshop or attending one here in Devon please contact me via my blog or email me at alisonjoyw@hotmail.co.uk

One more thing! I am linking up to Handmade Monday over at http://www.1stuniquegifts.co.uk/blog/ why not pop over to have a look at all the other interesting blogs.

It looks like most of us are going to have a good week weatherwise, so lets hope it lives up to expectations otherwise! 

Can't wait for tomorrow! Am going to collect another car load of yarn for even more Extreme Crochet!  Oooh! So excited! Can't wait to see what colours I'll get!  Better than Christmas!!!

Have a good week!
Talk soon!

    1. He'd be all fingers and thumbs (well claws and paws really!) so not much use I'm afraid! Thank you for your comment :)

  5. What brilliant photographs Allison, Chester is so lovely. As a big cat-fan, think I prefer the normal size ones as feeding Chester would be a bit too expensive. Hope you have a good week and enjoy your car load of yarn.

  18. Chester has brightened up my day! You must have a very large house to give him a home!!

  19. Err! No! He is sat in the arm chair watching television with us as we speak. He has to curl up on the floor for a nap when we have visitors!! Thank you for your comment :)

  20. Oh my goodness - Chester is so cute! He looks so funny in the picture driving the car! I just went and read the story of Chester - its great how you made him. The picture of him sitting with his arms and legs crossed is hilarious. Unsuspecting visitors to your house must get a fright if he is sitting there. Mich x
