want to see a pic of what I am working on????
These lovely blocks were artistically arranged, placed after much to-ing and fro-ing last night... I also squinted at them from afar, took the SPECS off to even have a blurrier pic.. and was very happy with the layout.. well of course I came back to EEK... CHAOSS!!! all 5.1kgs of the furry booger...
Now to look at him..
I know... he is cute, and has that sort of 'butter wouldn't melt in his mouth' look about him.. but let me remind you all, he is a BASTARD CAT... pardon the french, but he is of very questionable parentage as well... a REAL bastard of a cat....... as I was telling him off for 'skidding' or 'quilt rearranging' as I am sure he calls it, he did a big 'dump' in his box, so I cleaned that up... when I come back inside, oh of course, he left me a present on the carpet, a lovely FURBALL... cats?? they are as bad as kids, but at least there is the RSPCA for naughty bastard pussy cats.. I can't threaten the kids with the POUND...
Of course we'd never send Bailey the Wonderdog to the pound.. she is a very good watchdog (sometimes she even gets off her bed to bark at peeps rattling the gate)
she likes to think she is an inside doggie, but she isn't.. she does do a mad dash through the house from time to time as she has taken a liking to bastard cat food :O) he is too fussy, but ol' Bazzie, well she adores tuna with wild rice and lordy knows what else we try to tempt the furry devil with..
here is a pic of Bazzie we took very recently, she is starting to look a wee bit grey around the gills (a bit like myself)
Okay, back to the quilt... I fiddled and have squinted (and took the specs off) and very quickly got a pic of it reassembled again.. I'll be stitching this tonight, I am not into parties or big gatherings, I am a bit 'shy'.. now I know people who have met me in the flesh might think this is HILARIOUS but I truly am a shy wall flower.. I have been known to have panic attacks thinking about having to go to big functions... Anyhoo.. this is the quilt... so far... I have about 20 seams or so to sew and its done!
These blocks partially were from the block swap that Christine had organised on her blog.. I had a few extra's that worked as well, its civil war / 19th century repros.. I think there could be a few 'would be if they could be's' but hey, I am not the quilt police so it works for me! I want to get this one finished to send with a few others off to my friend to get quilted sometime in 2010!
speaking of 2010.. Happy New Year to you all... I am hoping for a safe year for all my family and friends, an easier year for my dad.. much happiness for my dear brother and cooler weather! how long until Winter????? 6 months?? crikey!!!
take care possums...
