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…

Lucy ~ Watching Bird Shadows

We’ve had Lucy for four months now (Nevada Humane Society kitty)…she is a very silly kitty. Very fun to be around.

Over the weekend she spent about 20 minutes enthralled with the bird shadows on the door between the entry way and the front sun room…with the shadows coming in from the sun room window (cedar tree out front). Usually she just chatters at the birds through the window…but for some reason the shadows behind her caught her attention…and kept it for a very long time. 🙂
