Good Morning! Had a busy day yesterday so only got a small amount done on my quilt..! But this is the block of our cat, “Cassie”…she’s almost 16 years old. She and I are growing old together! 🙂 She thinks of me rather like a gigantic food dish on legs!!! 🙂 Never scratches, never bites, loves everyone…and loved thunderstorms when we were in Vermont. Very strange in a cat ( or dogs either!!!) She would go out on the porch and watch the lightning and the rain. At first, we thought she might be a bit deaf…but since she could hear a can of cat food being opened in the kitchen when she was outside (!!!) we figured it was not deafness!!! She actually was strange when she came to us,…and living with us just made her more so!! LOL
Here is the block…she always loved the Autumn and it is my favourite season too, especially in Vermont as it is so beautiful…so I am making the flower leaves green and gold.
I will add some other personal things on this block but did get some of the leaves appliqued on and some embroidery done. Although this is time-consuming, it really is fun! I hope you will try one of these personal quilts too if you have the time and enjoy taking a break from rug hooking in the summertime!
As you probably know from the other things I do, I am not worrying about finishing one block completely before going on to the others! I am working on a group of 6 blocks now and will probably work in groups of 2 or 3 next. I will finish one group before going on to the next..! 🙂
I like Eleanor Roosevelt’s thought…”With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.” When I’ve had a “weepy” day, it is especially nice to wake up to a new day and new strength. It is all part of the grieving process…but I do have many times of happiness and contentment too! This adjustment period is like riding an emotional roller coaster! The quilt is really a great help and fun to remember the personal things!
I hope your new day and new strength and thoughts are pleasant for you today! Enjoy, Sunnie 😉
