Our weather has gone from lovely snow delight to nasty blowing rain. Matthew will be with us another day or two, but then he'll be heading back to Klamath Falls to pack up his belongings for his move back to Portland. It will be wonderful having my whole family close again.
Today we futzed around much of the day because the weather was too crappy to do anything else. We managed to get all the Christmas presents wrapped which was the last dreaded Christmas thing to do. And let me tell you, we had more help than you can shake a stick at. And even when we shook a stick at it, we still had more help than we could use.
Can you see the devil in his eyes?
I'm still planning to do some baking this coming week, but I enjoy that.
The rest of the day was spent working on the next cat for the Folk Art Cats quilt. I've been excited to start on this one. It's a Santa cat.
My tutorial will post on January 2nd, and so you'll be seeing this one up close and real personal then. Also, I found the perfect fabric for the back of this quilt, and so I have it on order. It's Laurel Burch's Fantasy Felines.
While I worked on that, Gracie and Smitty hung out in the opium catnip den of iniquity.
Gracie took time out every now and then to give Smitty the evil eye. They are playing much more frequently however, and so it can't be all that bad for her. I do think she's annoyed that Smitty dumped all the catnip onto the floor though. Now there's none left to sprinkle on her bed in the sewing room.
How did your weekend go?
