Okay, for you fellow cat lovers out there...
This is Bishop. She's a venerable 12 years old, soon to be 13. She's a sweetheart with me, but despises our other 2 cats (who are almost 3 years old, birthday on Hallowe'en.)
She's a good ol' girl and she (along with one of the black cats) keeps me company during the day, always curled up nearby. The reason I posted the photo yesterday is because I was absolutely shocked to see her up on my desk! This is a cat that has trouble with anything higher than a stair riser...partly due (we think) to arthritis, but mostly due to her Rubenesque physique.
I'm not usually someone to post pictures of my pets, but now I've done it twice in two days!
And just so y'all don't think I've abandoned my crafty ways, here's a picture of what I did on Sunday...Burda 8407. Not the greatest picture, but it gives you the idea. Yes, it still needs a good pressing.
With moving on the horizon I've been going through all my old boxes of art, craft and sewing supplies in an effort to pare down. If I haven't used something in the time we've been in this house, why do I still have it? Rather than have a garage sale, I've been selling most of my old (but good) yarn and fabric stash on eBay, or giving it to local charity.
While going through my boxes of fabric I ran across this gray wool suiting, a piece of fabric that I bought about 15 years ago, when I lived in Vancouver (Oh! Vancouver! Land of inexpensive and plentiful fabric!).
Last weekend on my way back from Rossland I bought this sweet skirt pattern, and - voila! A skirt!
Back to quilting,
