Sunny Day from Cat Patches

After my pronouncement that yesterday would be nothing but sewing, I ended up doing just about everything but sewing. There was some sewing, so don't worry. It was such a lovely day, though, and so I took the literal first steps to getting some exercise back into my life. First, I was almost completely sedentary, using broken bones as an excuse. (Honestly...some people are so lazy.) Then, I used the weather as an excuse. Yesterday, I kind of ran out of excuses. Let's hope I can keep it going.

A New Pat Pauly Workshop! from Where Art & Life Meet

I’m sitting here in my workout clothing sans sneakers typing this as I didn’t dare put on my regular work “uniform” for fear I would never honor my Spin Class reservation that begins at 11am. And while we’re on the topic, I just have to say, workout bras are truly a form of torture. You… Continue reading A New Pat Pauly Workshop!

Hello April from Cat Patches

It's a pretty sunrise for April Fools this morning. Probably best if those sailors stay out of the Suez Canal this morning, don't you think?


It took a while for warmer temperatures to arrive yesterday morning. Sadie was all over it, flattening her tummy against the warm concrete before taking a good dust bath.


Smitty decided to wait until later in the day to take his dust bath. In the morning, there was work to be done helping out in the sewing room. He was there by my side as we cut 80 more 2 x 2-inch squares ...

Scrapmania! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

 

I often get asked - how do you store your scraps? Or what is a scrap? Well, a scrap is a small piece of fabric! How small you want to deal with is your choice. I keep most scraps - OK - anything less than 1" goes, but do you know how often I need 1" strips? 

As for sorting, I sort mine by color and store them in clear plastic shoe boxes. 

I love when a project calls for scraps. OK -- I guess the patterns I'm working with do NOT call for scraps, but I'm using scraps. I have Long ...

Exercise in the Time of Covid from Where Art & Life Meet

Before COVID hit I would begin the day by going to the gym, riding a stationary bike for 30 – 45 minutes, perhaps taking a 45 minute high intensity workout class before heading home. So when the gym closed I figured I’d landed on a “free space” meaning I’d start my exercise routine again once… Continue reading Exercise in the Time of Covid

A Morning Walk from Cat Patches

My doctor's appointment went quickly yesterday morning. I think it took me longer to find the correct building and a parking space than it did for the whole appointment. She remains skeptical about the rheumatoid arthritis scare, and I am too. What I really wanted from her was a prescription for a compounded ointment that I know to be effective. For whatever reason, my PCP didn't want to prescribe it. She seems to have a bias against compounded medication given her abrupt dismissal of the idea. Both the specialist and I wondered why. In any case, that's ...

Testing an Adage from Cat Patches

It was a lovely day here yesterday...sunny, but chilly. Smitty demonstrated how to keep one's paws warm on a chilly morning. It's easy. Just tuck them under yourself, and your fingers will be warm as a kitty's paws.


My morning started as usual, blogging, then doing my slow-stitching. We were planning to take my new bike into town so I could ride it on a flat, paved surface. It was chilly and windy, and so we decided to wait until after lunch, hoping for warmer temperatures. So I made the divinity early. This stuff is so ...

Lots of Sewing from Cat Patches

We got through our grocery shopping trip without too much trouble yesterday. I'll never forgive my grocery store...one of those mega marts...for moving the cat food to the far end of the store. It's their way of forcing pet owners to walk through the whole store, presumably picking up non-list items along the way, before they can finish their grocery shopping. Walmart does this too, and that's only one reason I dislike Walmart. Anyway...we didn't need cat food yesterday, and so our mileage was less. And this begs the question...why move the ...

A Walk through Caliente from Cat Patches

There was nothing on yesterday's agenda. We were lazy for a good part of the day. We made a trip to a very small grocery store in the late morning. Not much on our list could be found there, but we were able to pick up a couple of limes and tomatoes...and ice cream because we were completely out of frozen treats. As we were backing out of the parking lot, I looked across to see this:


Holy Patchwork!!! Could it be? Well, no...it wasn't. To my great disappointment, it turned out to be someone's ...

Stringin' on a Friday! from Humble Quilts

 Actually I'm done stringin'!! I eliminated 2 rows from my original size and added a border.  This was copied from an unusual setting that I saw on quiltindex.org
The blocks finish at 4". I really could have made them 6" and been perfectly fine. 

Look at this beautiful day we had yesterday! 
 Because I will be trekking in Peru this spring I need to keep moving as much as possible! I'm not super excited for the forecast of snow next week, so I'll keep getting out and exercising as much as possible until then.
Our high ...

A Day of Sloth from ... Cat Patches

It's embarrassing to admit I did almost nothing yesterday. Actually, it's not all that embarrassing, because I knew I was going to sit right here...as if I could see it in a crystal ball...and write these very words. And yet, I kept on going...or not going...with my slothful ways. I have no regrets.

Earlier in the morning, Sue and I walked. The path we chose yesterday is an in-and-out walk, meaning we turn around and walk back the way we came. We pass through a small park along our meandering, and there, we saw ...
