Stray cat - the cat that has decided she is now mine and lives in Ginger's wendy house is getting more and more friendly by the day. Here she is wrapping herself around my legs, and purring too. Poor little thing. She's beautiful, all white, except for the mucky bits. I want to have her in the house, but NooNoo is not a fan, and hasn't been himself since she showed up. No-one seems to know where she has come from, so it looks like I'll have to find a home for her. Well, I have found a home, actually. A crazy, old cat lady the other side of town lost a white cat, I phoned her and she said her cat had turned up again, but if this little lady needed a new home she would be more than happy to give her one. She seemed lovely, definitely a little eccentric, she's been re-homing strays and lost kitties for years.
I'm digressing...a cat can have that effect on me.
I wanted to show you this....
I spent last night quilting it, simply, just in the ditch. I trimmed it down, tidied it up....
and now I've sewn the binding on. Tonight's TV task will be stitching it on to the back. And trying not to sit at a funny angle, because my back is hurting from sewing the binding on to the rocket quilt.
And once that is done it's on to another WIP. My quilt blocks from the sewconnected2 quilting bee need to be turned into a quilt for my bedroom. I was going to sash them, but I rather like how they look all together. I have the border fabric sorted, and I think I've settled on the layout. Maybe 2 borders would be nice. I want it to be quite busy, so once I've sewn the blocks together I can decide which 2 fabrics for the border and corner stones. And then I'll send it off to Christine to quilt it. I might go all out and have it custom quilted rather than one all over design. We'll see. Christine is the wise one, I'll let her decide what looks best.
My sis in law has found out she's having a little baby girl, so it looks like the liberty prints will be turned into something quilty after all. Hooray.
