Our other kitty, Kiska, has been ill for the last 1 1/2 years or so. Earlier this week it appeared she had had a stroke and so we had to say good-bye again to another one of our fur babies. Two good-byes in the last 3 weeks is hard. Even though we were a little more prepared for this one it was still hard to see her go. The house sure is quiet now.
I have been wanting an applique project to work on this year. But I couldn’t decide exactly what. Then I remembered that I had picked up the pattern for the Merry Merry Snowman quilt last year. I had started picking out green fabrics because I wanted something different. There are going to be hundreds of red quilts out there one day! Not that I don’t love the red! I do! But I just wanted the challenge of finding a different color theme.
When I pulled out what I had so far I didn’t really like the green anymore. So I started digging through my stash to see what I had. I think I am going to like this for the backgrounds. I am envisioning brighter colors for the applique pieces. We shall see. I am really jumping around on my projects lately. And frankly, between the kitchen remodel and the loss of our two cats my quilting has been in a weird funk. Knitting has been my therapy of choice lately.
And my hubby is excited about his garden this year. These are his tomato starts sitting near the sliding door… searching for the sun. Come back sun! We miss you!
