All Ahead Slow from ... Cat Patches

The day got off to a good start yesterday. I started with a little slow stitching, working on making my way around the binding for the Poppy Mosaic. Before I needed to leave, I turned the first corner, and was closing in on the second.



Before I go on, I want to address this email subscriber issue one more time. I'm hoping this is the last I'll need to say about it. So, the Follow.it emails seem to be arriving. They are in my email inbox, at least. I hope they are in yours too, if you ...

Long View from ... Cat Patches

It was a lovely and relaxing day yesterday. Cinco de Mayo is my birthday, and I spent it doing things I wanted to do. We ended the day with a celebratory dinner out. It seems there is much to celebrate right now. Even feeling comfortable going into a restaurant feels celebratory. But let's back up to the beginning, shall we? 

No day gets off to a good start without a little slow stitching. I took the first stitches on Plate #6 from Pieces of the Past. Yesterday, I was mainly using leftover floss bits from the last time I ...

Unplanned Day from ... Cat Patches

Yesterday morning, I thought I knew how the day would go...slow-stitching, then more quilting. I spent way more time on my slow stitching than expected, but I was determined to finish off Block 2 for Calendula Patterdrip's Cottage. 


As I've mentioned before, this very large piece is made up from Blocks 2, 3, and 4 of the quilt pattern, and it spans nearly the entire width of the quilt. It takes up approximately 1/3 the height of the quilt as well. Block 2 is probably the most densely stitched of the three blocks. 


From the get-go ...

Poppy Quilting from ... Cat Patches

When I finished yesterday's post, I went downstairs to be greeted by this guy, uh, girl, uh...who knows?

I have an idea this is a pregnant female. We usually get at least one litter of kits each year. They are awfully cute when they emerge from their hole and start running around. 

As I mentioned, Big Bertha came home from the spa yesterday, and Pfelicity took her place. It's nice to have her back. Pfelicity does a good job, but she doesn't have the knee lift that Big Bertha has, and I really miss that...especially ...

Slowly I Turn from Cat Patches

Everything moved in slow motion for me yesterday. I'm not sure why I was so lazy, but I was. It isn't as if I wasn't accomplishing anything, but getting dressed was at the bottom of the list. Just before lunch, I was about to make myself presentable, but then...lunch. Heck, I could put off getting dressed just a little longer, couldn't I? And that's how the day went. Sometimes one just needs a day of sloth, I think.

Each morning, I turn on the grow light for the seedlings. Yesterday, I was happy to ...
