The Lives And Times Of A Quilter's Cats

Random thoughts of three or four cats and I about the importance of wearing slippers if you happen to share your home with a quiltmaker who drops pins, and other similar and related nonsense, from fabric to gardening and of course, about the cats who inspire all this madness. En inglés y en español.

Baby, It's Cold Outside!

This is what it was like today, mid-afternoon. Yep, it's ice. Ice thick enough for ducks to walk on. With a wind chill factor of -10C, there had to be a reward of sorts after all... a ton of red tailed hawks flying around. I had never seen them this close.

Hoy por la tarde, de paseo con una sensación térmica de -10. El hielo era lo suficientemente grueso como para que los patos pudiesen andar por encima. Como recompensa por la total locura de salir a pasear con el frio que hacía, ví muchos halcones de rabo rojo. Nunca los había visto tan de cerca.

As for sewing, after having received a beautiful biscornu for Christmas, I wanted to make one for my mom. Here is the result, a mini in blue. I've made another since, and I am back to piecing. I have started sewing the Nearly Insane quilt's border. Not a fun job, but maybe it will motivate me to find a sashing fabric and get on with it.

Y de costura, recibí un regalo de un biscornu precioso estas navidades. Me animó para intentar hacer uno para mi madre. Aquí está, en azul. He terminado otro en rosa y ahora empiezo de nuevo a hacer patch. Estoy cosiendo las piezas del borde del Nearly Insane. Es un poco aburrido, pero quizá me motive a encontrar una tela para las tiras de separación y pueda empezar por fin a coser el top.
