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.

Of How Times Flies

I'm alive and quilting. It seems as if time flies when you are having fun... or at least quilting fun. Winter has arrived early this year, so it's been perfect for sitting with a big quilt on my lap and whittling the hours away stitching.

The Confederate Courtship quilt I pieced during the summer is turning out to be a giant of a project. I decided to quilt with two things one would hope a courtship would end up in: hearts and rings. It has been a slow process, though. The secondary pattern formed is pretty neat. I'll take pictures when the weather improves and dries somewhat, and I can take it outside to spread it on the fence.

Estoy viva y acolchando. Parece mentira como pasa el tiempo de deprisa cuando estás acolchando algo que te gusta. Llegó el invierno con bastante anticipo y apetece sentarse debajo de un quilt tan grande y pasarme las tardes acolchando.

El quilt Confederate Courtship que hice este verano pasado está siendo un verdadero gigante para acolchar. Decidí ponerle dos motivos acolchados que se viesen bien por detrás: corazones y anillos. Las dos cosas que uno espera en que termine un noviazgo. Va lento, pero el patrón que va apareciendo por la trasera me gusta bastante. Le haré fotos fuera para que lo veaís cuando deje de llover/nevar y se seque la valla y el suelo.
