Tom is still galliantly plodding on with his patchwork quilt and now has 235 squares made, rougly 120 or so to go.
Rupert thinks that all the bits of fabric littered all over the bed make a lovely cosy sleeping area, half in and half out of a basket he first looks as though to say 'Yes, you wanted something?'
And then gives a big yawn to emphasis the fact that I am disturbing him, showing his great big curly tongue.
I have been really slack lately with the blogging, mainly because its been hot and also I've been really busy sewing.
I finally finished the book cover that I started way back at the beginning of June, just got to make it up now.
I've got a cunning plan for making it this time and hope that I can get a better fit than the last one.
I tatted a couple of leaves and laid some pink satin under the lace in each corner, then worked french knots and beads to keep it in place. Brown velver for the surround and lots of crystals and pearls.
All topped off with 3 large hand made organza flowers.
Willow has been in the wars. Last Saturday she started limping quite badly on her front left leg. It is improving every day so we are assuming that she must have pulled a muscle.
I'm really good at rushing to the vets whenever the cats are unwell, but I held off this time and I think she'll be okay.
Ball throwing is off the menu for a while until she is fully recovered.
She's a really sweet cat but she's not pushy like the rest of them so tends not to get so much air time.
