"He Always Gets What He Wants"....
Bozzy rules the roost at our house
he's the Big Kahuna
it's been that way from the beginning... likely because he was such a pathetic little mess when we adopted him - ears frozen and ready to fall off, ditto for the end of his tail
wheezing and grunting from frozen lungs
he's been molly-coddled back to health and then some...
he and Mistress Josy-phine have a special relationship
he always gets what he wants
she can have a little hissy fit if she likes
Bozzy has learned Josie always finds the best spots for perching
and watching the world go by
so he knows that when she's conspicuously absent, it must be because she is in a better place
case in point...
surveying the situation
mapping the route: north face, no ropes
He'll sit there for a while, checking things out, until he's sure everyone who's anyone knows that he's The Boss and then he'll saunter off, in search of a person...
that's the natural order of things
I've gone back to the natural order of things too...
when I first started quilting I made doll quilts
little quilts in different patterns, learning about colour and cloth and pattern and design
some hand-pieced and hand quilted, others by machine
all teaching me something
I saved all the snippets and scraps in baggies, one for each one that I made and they are still that way, tucked away safely in a box and in my mind
Laura was little then and always going to birthday parties
the doll quilts were perfect little birthday presents - they were chameleons; a doll quilt if appropriate, a place mat if not
Laura always chose which one to give
this week I made another one
machine pieced, but I'm hand quilting it
a dream to needle - I'll never use anything else for hand-quilting again
and my brand new bunny scissors from The Raspberry Rabbits
Shell said in a recent post she contributes $ from purchases to a shelter for bunnies so I ordered these
and are they a dream!
cute and sharp, made in Europe and beautifully pointy
I love lovely tools
