I finished the little cat quilt and for those of you who asked about the fabric I did check the selvedge. Since I only have a half yard, I just so happen to have the 18″ with no marking and I’ve probably had this piece of fabric for about 10 years so I cannot help you. I am so sorry. Here’s a picture of the back with those uneven straight quilted lines again which I show you only to illustrate that if I can machine quilt, so can you.
Remember the cat above the garage? This cat has been living up there since October and I’ve never seen it do anything but sleep. It is deaf and it developed a respiratory condition. I never let my own cats come in contact with this cat and finally I decided I just had to do something. I bought a live animal trap and when I caught her I made the very hard decision to have her tested for feline leukemia and then euthanized. I am a firm believer in quality of life versus quantity of life. The vet thought I could bring her home but I would just be prolonging the inevitable. She would get run over here in our yard or on the highway and I would rather see her drift off than be violently killed. And frankly, don’t you think I have enough stress right now with Faye?
I’m off to the care center monthly birthday party to play the piano. Have a nice weekend everybody!
