Actually quite boring...

Just finished my shawl... it looks quite boring, doesn't it? Not just the colour, but the whole thing. I guess blocking is necessary:) Which needs to be done... maybe next weekend.Working on a anniversary gift for two of my favourite family members. They both turn 70 this year, and will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary, too! All in one year. Must make a quilt for that:)
Cats not included... They will be returning home to their mom this week.
Trying to use up some of the left-overs from the Hideaway quilt, the cut-offs. Its as far as it have gotten at the moment. Head is not in it at the moment, but will fortunately return:)

A cat in a box

Cats and boxes. There is a connection there. What it is, I do not know. The desire to be closed in?
Hehe. I do not know. I just know there is something slightly creepy about cats in boxes. They just sit there! They sit, and they stare. As if they are waiting for something to happen. Maybe they think it is a TARDIS?!

Winter evenings

Some winter evenings give a wonderful light outside - when the sun is still up. I just love the blue sky and the yellow building, caught on my way home from work one afternoon.
If you are a cat, like the two I am catsitting at the moment, you spend the winter evenings lazing about....

Like the princess on the pea.... many, many pillows...

.. or hogging my ironing board! I have had to put a sheet over it, as it is a pain to remove the cat hair every time I need to iron.

Not that this one cares about the extra work he causes me!

Night is coming, and it is soon time for another nap.

One block, seriously!

I just finished the flimsy from my Hideaway fabric - the stack I got for my birthday from a very good friend:) It amazes me how one block can look so different, just by using different fabrics!

It's just a star block - but made with 30 different fabrics.
None of the photos does justice to the colours. During winter you can't get good light, morning or night. Now I just need to find fabric for a border, and some backing.
