Quilt and Kitten

Oh, this mommy is tired. I have yawned all day. Yawn after yawn, every minute, every hour. It must be the heat or maybe my boredom. I've been longing to crochet, but not able. Did I tell you my "stash" has twilled down to NOTHING!. It's that even possible! We have been down in a financial slump lately so I haven't been able to make my monthly yarn shopping spree--sad times, so I've had to find other things to occupy myself with like quilting. Remember way back when I started this quilt, well I finally finished it. Hand quilted throughout. love. so cozy.  Now, as you can see, my quilts are not your so called fancy normal quilts with fancy fabrics. I find the scrappiest fabrics from just about~ where ever to use. The more mixed matched, the better! I also find that hand quilting is so much more relaxing than verses machine quilting. I've tried machine quilting before but my quilts always come out uneven which frustrates me so.

I've also been keeping busy with our new little addition. Way back when my when we had another kitty almost the same, and now no longer with us, I promised myself I would never have another have another in the house. But one fine day, a trip to the vet with my mother-n-law, this sweet lady who worked there came into the room and ask if I would like to have a kitten. Someone left this poor little thing in a box outside their office over the weekend with no food or water and it just broke my heart. The moment I laid eyes on her she was mine. She was only a few weeks old when she came home. Now thriving and thinks she is a human. Just look at those sweet kitty paws...so cute!

Now I'm going to finish piecing another quilt top together, much bigger than the last one and maybe dip my fingers into that basket of yarn, or at least....what's left in it.
