A Short Day from Cat Patches

There isn't much to tell you about yesterday's activities. It was a driving day. Like any day, it started with kitty lap time. Being Sunday, it was a day of peace and so they snuggled tail to half-tail on Mike's lap. You might say they were purracticing tail tolerance; or, "tailerance." (Smitty just now made up that word.)


It was a three-hour (or so) drive to our final destination of Hopkins, South Carolina.


Hopkins was the closest RV park we could find near Congaree National Park, which is the real object of our desire. We'll be ...

Sunday Morning from Just Sayin' Sew

It just doesn’t get much better than this.

One in my lap and two close by. Coffee just out of the picture. Ahhhhhh….

How’s your Sunday going?

Hugs,

The American Museum of the House Cat from Cat Patches

What a delightful visit we had to the American Museum of the House Cat yesterday. 


I was thoroughly charmed before we even walked through the door.


This is the metal cat that greets visitors in the parking lot. Her name is Rainbow.


These are her kittens.


Even the price of admission was cute with kittens getting in for a mere $2.


It was created by Dr. Harold Sims, a retired biology professor, also known as the Catman. Here's the information on their business card.


This is the back of the card:

Quilt Shop: Mountain Stitches by Susan from ... Cat Patches

Okay, my blogging friends. I promised you a quilt shop, and a quilt shop you shall have. As I mentioned in my post from Thursday, we drove through Great Smoky Mountains National Park to the Gatlinburg, Tennessee, side and stopped there for lunch. While we were eating, I checked my quilt shop app (which, sadly, will stop working the next time I update my iPhone...sad face), and discovered this quilt shop just four miles down the road. I've learned to call ahead and check whether they're still in business and to double check the address before going ...

My Sewing Tutu from Curlicue Creations

 No, I'm not dancing and quilting at the same time.  I'm nowhere near that coordinated!  The sewing Tutu came in the October Quilty Box.

I was excited to try it.  It fits over the top of  a wide mouth canning jar.  What a cute idea!

The pincushion top can be customized with the fabric of your choice.  I've been waiting for the "purrfect" project to use my "You've got to be kitten me" fabric.  This is it!  Meow.

I tried a few different jars before I found the right one.  The jar needs to be wide ...

Meet Frankie from BedofRosesMQ



 This little guy is Frankie. I found him in our backyard just laying in the grass with no sign of a Mom or siblings. So I picked him up and brought him in the house. With a Hawk in the neighborhood I couldn't leave him outside by himself. So in the 4 weeks he's been with us he has really grown and blossomed. He knows no fear and plays at full speed then all the sudden he just collapses where ever he happens to be and takes a nap.

He has been such a joy. We have ...

A Tail and a Half from ... Cat Patches

Good morning. Smitty here.


My mom and dad are off exploring the Great Smeowky Meowntains today, and so it seemed like a good time for me to get on the blog and give you the real scoop about what's been going on here at the Three Cats Ranch Traveling Circus. My mom always glosses over the hard work Sadie and I do while we're on the road. But befur I go on, I should discuss our demands. Furrst and furrmost, we demand our food. A cat cannot work without sustenance.


Sometimes my mom and dad try to foist ...

Sew What? from ... Cat Patches

Good morning, loved ones and friends. It's certainly good to be back in Internet Land. The day doesn't get off to a good start until I've had my little bloggy chat with y'all. There's just a little bit more I need to tell you to be caught up, and then we'll be ready for more sight-seeing. As I mentioned in yesterday's post, we took an extra day at our last location of Hillsville, Virginia. We'll be doing more of that...trying to take a day at least once per week where we ...

Blue Ridge Parkway from ... Cat Patches

Hey there! Surprisingly, I'm back! We've been on the road for a couple of days, and last night, we left the Blue Ridge Parkway in search of a nearby KOA. The KOA was supposed to be open until the 15th, but it was closed for the season when we arrived. No problem. I checked one of my apps and found a nearby RV park in Hillsville, Virginia, that claimed to be open all year. It was about ten miles down the road, and we found the gates closed when we arrived, along with a sign instructing us to ...

Back To The Oregon Coast (Florence, OR) from QuiltinCats

First I want to thank all our Veterans today and to my husband who served in the USAF.
We left Sutherlin to go to Eugene for some repairs on the bedroom's slideout.  The air bladder that seals the slideout has been leaking air for the last two months.  Dan had slowed down the air loss, but it was time to get it replaced before winter set in.
The cats were not happy campers when we spent the night in a motel.  Because it was a last minute reservation, we ended up in a room at the end of the ...

Shenandoah National Park: Day Three from ... Cat Patches

For our final day in Shenandoah, we hiked the Snead Farm Trail Loop. The weather here has been less than ideal, and we've stayed a couple of extra days to wait out the sunshine. Yesterday's weather was so beautiful, it made us glad we stayed. It's very cold this morning, and we believe the pipe that feeds our water has frozen. The hose is heated, but still, it's 25 degrees and no water for us this morning...at least until the sun comes up. Smitty knows how to stay warm on a cold morning:

A Quilty Day from ... Cat Patches

The rain cleared yesterday, although I did hear it raining some last night. There was thick cloud cover and low fog over the national park, however. The road reopened from its ice closure, but we still knew we wouldn't be able to see anything (let alone the road) in such thick fog.


Instead, we hit the road to Harrisonburg where there were two quilt shops and the Virginia Quilt Museum. First, however, we needed to stop off at the RV park office to re-up for another couple of nights. This is where we got both good news and bad ...
