It's positively dazzling outside right now...especially if you're like us and have barely seen the sun in over a month. Even inside the house, I'm squinting from all that light blazing away outside.
My little cat is still my constant companion. He seems a little perkier this morning, and we both slept better last night. He's been a little restless the past few nights. He likes that I have some batting spread out on my work table letting the wrinkles relax out of it before I sandwich it with the Quilting Snowladies. It's an excellent and soft napping place for him.
We're on the hunt for a companion for him now, hoping that will give him something else to think about. Right now we have an appointment to see this little girl, whose name is Carole. We'll go take a look at her on Saturday, but we have a lead on a couple of other little girls. Carole is a 7-month old currently in foster care. I'd show you the others, but I haven't heard from the shelters where they're supposedly available, and so I'll wait until I actually have a meet and greet lined up.
It was a short sewing day yesterday. I had some things to do in the morning, and after I got home I was seriously on the hunt for kitties. It's been more than a little frustrating getting folks to call me back or respond to email inquiries, and so I feel lucky to at least have a meeting lined up to see pretty Carole.
We did manage to get the binding sewn onto the Icy Blues table runner. It still needs hand-stitching, but here...er, excuse me...
Ummm, I'm trying to take a picture here...would you mind just scooching a couple of more steps...
Okay...there we go.
Hoping to get that one finished today. This morning, I finished up the 4th of 12 blocks for the Hocuspocusville quilt. This is Morgana's Apothecary:
The next time I work on these blocks, I'll be doing "The Black Cauldron"
With "Spider soup" and "Worms Alfredo" on the menu, it sounds like some of our cooking around here.
So I'm back to my hunt. I'm being insistent in my phone jangling until I get someone on the line about these kitties. Carole's mother called me back right away, and so I figure that has to be a good sign. Of course, I'll keep you posted.
