Tuesday morning I stepped into the garage to put something in the garbage and this is what I saw — a nice cat sleeping in the garbage container. Hmmm….this is not my cat. I quietly went back in the house and checked later. No cat but after a search I found the cat in the room upstairs above the garage. I put out food and water and checked the litter box. After multiple trips upstairs the cat wants nothing to do with me. If this is a male cat, I don’t want the barn cat to fight with him. If this is a female cat, I don’t want the barn cat fathering a litter of kittens. What to do? For right now, I guess the cat will live upstairs and as soon as I can get it into a carrier, I will have it fixed — male or female.
It’s been a busy week – Connie’s party on Monday and on Tuesday my friends Al and Ginny came for lunch and a long visit. They brought one of their 9 dogs, a puggle named Milo.
Wednesday morning I met a friend in Mason City so we could look at home dec fabrics to recover her chair seats and then there was choir and cantata practice in the evening. This is too much activity for an old lady! So today I’m back at the sewing machine. Here is a sneak peak at one of the quilts that will be in the new book. I did straight line quilting on it of course because it’s the look I like the best AND it’s the only thing I can do well. Ha! The thing about straight line quilting is that it doesn’t get in the way of the quilt design and fabric choices which is what I like the best about quilting.
Thanks so much to those of you who sent pictures of your finished Gypsy Wife quilt tops. I love them all and will post them in a final Gypsy Wife discussion. Each one is so special! And there will never be two alike.
Back to the sewing machine – only 6 more quilts to go!
