Relaxing and Sewing from Cat Patches

It's been a busy couple of days. Yesterday, I had just a few easy chores to do, but then I spent most of the day sewing...either by machine or by hand. The machine sewing was spent finishing off the top-stitching and machine embroidery for New Mexico Kitchen.


It wasn't finished yet though. Next, I needed to do some hand embroidery. I added some vegetables to the stew, divots in the potato skin, holes for the salt shaker, and a name for the bottle of chile powder. I was going by the pattern spelling, but I think "chile ...

Chickening Out from Cat Patches

Well, if the day had been any busier yesterday, I'm afraid I might have been done in. Today will be much the same. Thursday I'll get a pedicure, which will be salve for the soul. 

It started out easy enough. We hung the Summer Holiday quilt on the 2nd floor of the Mewseum. That makes three quilts on the second floor collection.


The quilt on the far wall isn't a cat quilt, but oh well. Mike likes it, and so it stays. It's this Happy Village quilt I made some time ago. No doubt there are ...

A Dozen Chickens from ... Cat Patches

 Yesterday's grocery shopping trip was quick. Our list was short, and we were home by around 10:15 a.m., which left me lots of time to finish up my quilting for the day. I even did some housework. (Polishes fingernails on shirt.) Time was short because Mike and I still needed to drive into downtown Portland. 

So, I finished up the last of the chicken blocks. Yesterday's addition to the buffet:

Fried Chicken. This one took forever. I was about one-quarter of the way through it when I realized the quilt corner was folded under, and I ...

Hot Harvest from Cat Patches

We had very warm weather yesterday. Toward the end of the afternoon, the temperature outside was 98°F., which is very hot for our hill. I can only imagine how people in the valley were suffering. We're expecting more hot weather today, but this morning's sunrise was beautiful. I can't recall seeing raking light from the clouds like this before.


While I was out, I walked all the way around the house, passing by Smitty along the way. He loves the warm weather and spends most of his time out on the catio.


Also, I passed by ...
