The furry kids sleep a lot in the areas that have sun. I noticed old Tom cat's 'battle scar' as the sun shone down on him, making his ear seem transparent.
Heather & I were in town shopping &we both purchased coats for our short haired boys. Boris do you want to try your coat on? Yes you do. lol
This isn't Boris but could be...only this Boston Terrier will move with his boots on! For treats!!
Elizabeth & I were thrift store shopping & I found this sweet felted pillow. How cozy will that be on your back on a cool day?
Bose feels the sun on her as she's curled up in a wing-back chair.
And on the this chair too, same pose different chair.
Heather & I were in town yesterday & when we entered the cottage several hours later....
My white perle cotton thread was everywhere!!!
And around, the thread was everywhere...
And around everything!
Finally it was on the green sponge ball & I found the original spool under or should I say 'around' the dogs food & water dish!
What a saying...While the cat's away?!!!
Rexton sure has livened up my days.
Heather shot me an email to say she couldn't help laughing all the way home! She said it was like a cartoon, seeing the thread strung everywhere.
Sewing Accomplishments...Nothing finished yet! lol
It will finish at 14 1/2" x 14 1/2". It's a kit that I picked up at the Quilts of England Quilt Show. Cynthia & I enjoyed viewing it last spring in Alisa Craig ON.
This wallhanging will have black binding added to it.
My neighbour Izzy has taught me how to make these snowflakes with beads in them!
These two are a,metallic white
After you crochet them, you put them if 'Stiffy' to stiffen them up & pin them into place till dry.
For a rustic look, I've been crocheting Hemp thread stars for my son Mitchell's Christmas tree.
I also taught myself through the YouTube, to do hexagon sqaures.
It's still a work in progress...I used the leftover fabric from the Star Crazy quilt. It was a lot easier that I thought it be! I'm going to make a small placemat. And Izzy made a queensized quilt using this technique! I enjoyed hearing her stories of all the fabric used in it. The quilt just came alive as she spoke of her mother making aprons from this fabric or her telling how she made a blouse in high school with this fabric. Such stories, such memories!
I painted the downstairs bathroom...twice.
The first time had too much colour in it so I took the paint back to Home Hardware & had 2 full shots of white added to the existing paint & added the 2nd coat. The room has a much better feel to it now.
I still have 6 more windows to paint. Grrrrr nearly there. :-)
It has the look of metal...it's plastic!! With magnets, I've hung it with rope securing it upper & lower. Now the wind can & will blow & the wreathe stays in place.
Now with fall in place, I'm going to enjoy the fresh sunny days - with NO mosquitoes!
And natures display of plaid like colours.
Thanks for stopping in.
