Sort of a Wordless Wednesday ~ 15 August 2012

15 August 2012 smokey Reno Sunrise

Lucy finally discovered the cat tree.

Mine…all MINE.

14 August 2012 Reno Sunrise…lots of wildfire smoke

A Motley Monday

Took a break from quilting this evening to play with some photographs I took over the weekend…

Leo with his Mardi Gras beads.


I think Leo is part dog, he loves to play with tennis balls and chase sticks.


This guy was sitting on the fence on my way to church.


The tulips and daffies that I planted last fall are peeking up.



Cats and Quilts

It was a holiday today…and cold…so I stayed in and quilted.

While I was in my room throwing up some wonky stars onto my design wall, I heard a commotion in my fabric hutch….


Lucy jumped up into the 1930’s fabric…which is what I’m using for the Sparkle Punch quilt-along. I’m going to need to rein in the long skinny arms of the stars!


Then I moved on out to the living room to make the binding for my Feeling Groovy (Riley Blake) ric-rac quilt (thimble blossoms), the last UFO quilt!


Here was where my helper was…



Feeling Groovy is all set for the hand binding now…


Gone to the Birds…

Red-Tail and Kestrel taken at Rancho San Rafael Park in Reno…Scrub Jays and Robin at my house (taken through a dirty window…sorry).

And…hopefully this pretty guy is one of the Ranger’s or neighbor’s kitty…he’s pretty well fed for a stray (taken at the park).
