coffee in hand while the snow whirled and swirled outside
My fabric piles have been distracting me of late, and I waffle between groaning over how much there is and being entranced by all the colour, pattern and texture calling out...
there is an oriental print at the shop that has been there for a couple of years - black with little pink and white cherry blossoms interspersed with circles filled with oriental motifs...
a very interesting piece of cloth
every time someone brought it to the counter I would wish I could think of something to do with it
finally one day I put myself out of my misery and bought some
and today I started a little quilt with it
the blocks are all finished and laid out on the floor so I can think about a border... so far I'm lovin' it
and I've been meaning to tell you -
remember last summer I told you about our little Miss Josie cat and how the vet had diagnosed her with acute renal failure?
she weighed about 2.2 kilos (under 5 lbs) was desperately thin, and while her blood work showed the kidneys weren't functioning properly, it seems renal failure wasn't the problem.
We have no idea what was wrong with her (worms or some kind of bird flu have both been tossed around) but with a huge effort of feeding and hydrating her, I am pleased to say Mistress Josy-phine is now weighing in at a healthy 3.9 kilos and has a lovely round belly!
and has taken to playing in the bathtub at all hours of the night!
she takes her little cat toys in and tosses them all about and wakes up the whole house
the other night Bozzy went in and howled something fierce at her...
and I bet it wasn't "hush"!
