Lisa from Swe Daisy Spaces suggested that I name the kitty Bella and that she may be from Italy – the home of Ballet. I had no idea that Ballet originated from Italy, aren’t you bloggers clever people!

I had a peek on wiki for more info and it turns out that Ballet has it’s origins in the Italian Renaissance Court where it was a dance interpretation of fencing. It was then developed in the French court before flourishing in Denmark and Russia. “Ballerina” was originally a title reserved for an exceptional ballet soloist in the Russian Imperial Ballet.

Bella is now with her new best friend, beautiful 6 month old Anna.

No crafting for me in the past couple of weeks, Oscar has been sick and teething. He’s on the mend now so hopefully there’s crafty goodness coming to this space soon.
