Good Saturday to everfurry buddy! We hope that you have all had a good week and are ready to enjoy your weekend.
We want to congratulate Big King Pipster and His Queen for a most successful Bucket Tour and we will admit we are glad they are home again. The Cheeseburger King and his beloved Nurse had lots of fun all over the USA. We didn't invite him to Minnesota because we know he doesn't like snow and cold, but now I bet he wouldn't have missed it. So Congrats you two on a great trip.
Speaking of snow and cold, it is going sub-zero again and we had four inches of new snow on Friday.. More on the way today! We aren't going to complain about it though, as long as our shovels work we can keep busy with it. Stella is having trouble finding good spots to "go" in the backyard, it being too deep for her but she will just have to soldier on. Spring I am sure will get here easily by mid-May!
I have been sewing, not the quilt blocks I intended but a little gift for my son's office. This is a Minnesota Star and if you will look closely you will see the center star consists of dollar signs and watches, so it is named "Time is Money" , an old saying but appropriate to a business office. Here is the closeup:
I think you can click on these to see them up even closer. I planned to put a brown binding with pine cones, but now I think it needs something brighter, maybe to pick up that gold. I will experiment with this a little. If anyone has any ideas for it, I will always listen!
Did you happen to read the Letter to my Cat article written on the Candidae blog? Seems there has been a book of Letters to My Dog which has been very successful and now they are going to do one for cats. I thought a long time about any cat I or my family ever had that I would write a love letter to and finally came up with one. A grey Tomcat that my Dad called the Long Grey Line (after a movie about West Point!). I was about 14 or 15 and I would pick this long skinny cat up and put him around my neck and wear him like a scarf almost! In the summer my mother would put a big bouquet of Pink and white Peonies in a vase that sat on top of a book case. The cat would climb up there, get behind the vase, stick his head through the flowers and check out everyone in the livingroom. It was a funny surprise to walk into the room, look up and see these beautiful pink and white flowers with a big grey face in the middle. I could write a love letter to almost every dog I have ever had or been around, but somehow the cats just lead their own lives.
Here is a little funny to end this with. Can't you just imagine the ad taker asking the person to describe the pony???
I may get going on my quilt blocks soon, even show you the lost and found fabric I love so much. But it seems like I am someone who just goes where my thoughts lead me.
Cheers and hugs all around, and have a happy weekend.
Jo, Stella and Zkhat
