Another Throwback Thursday is coming up, the first Thursday of the month (how is it October already??), to share another older quilt with A Quarter Inch from the Edge. You might have noticed Cora got involved with the last one… wherever the camera is, the photo bomb extraordinaire tends to show up!
Here are a couple more outtakes from the last photo shoot…
And a sneak peek of the quilt coming up this week…
Clearly, Cora is starving for attention… we just don’t give her enough of it, I guess!
The first couple days after getting home from our trip, the cats were super affectionate. Every time we left, they were waiting at the door when we got back. Every moment we were awake, the cats were close by. After a few days, they seemed convinced that we weren’t going to leave again, and things went back to normal.
I definitely needed a weekend at home to get caught up on life… and after conquering mountains of laundry, an empty fridge, and two weeks’ worth of cat hair everywhere, I felt a lot better. Everything is back to normal… including the cats’ levels of affection, ha!
Glad to be home sweet home again!
We’re flying back home today, and so excited to see the kitcats again! Here’s another batch of Instagram pics until then… I finally caught up to 2015! This round must be from February/March since I was sewing up a storm while the last of the bad weather made its way through. The cats won’t mind the extra excuse for snuggles then, and they probably won’t when the temps start to feel like Fall again!
There’s a beautiful bushy-tailed cat that wanders the neighborhood freely. We can’t quite tell if he belongs to someone, but he definitely seems to be surviving just fine on his own. His coat is glossy, he’s friendly, and he doesn’t seem very hungry.
We know this, of course, because we brought him a snack. He seemed mildly interested in the food, but came closer for some polite petting first before eating. I named him Bosco.
Bosco used to show up at our front door just to make Cora and Tali crazy, but he hasn’t done that for a few months. These days we mostly see him hanging out in the parking lot and jumping into the bushes if any kids come near.
Now that we’re preparing to leave this neighborhood for a new one, I guess we’ll have to say goodbye to the neighborhood cat and everything else. But until then, our friend Bosco will be around.
Time for an Instagram shenanigans starring your favorite kitties Cora and Tali! I’ve finally caught up to 2015, and this batch features the snow days in January & February. Quite different from the dog days of summer we’re experiencing right now!
Every so often I catch the cats being besties… and lately, it’s been happening as the sun goes down and they catch the last few rays together on the window ledge.
I’m pretty sure the heater Tali is laying on is the only thing keeping Cora from falling off, ha!
P.S. Sneaky peek… a certain furry someone was mighty pleased that I finished up a quilt over the weekend! I’ll get pics up later this week.
Cora loves it when I go shopping… because then she gets to climb inside the bags and shred the tissue paper until I ruin the fun by cleaning up.
This weekend was an EPIC shopping event… I’ve been on a fabric fast for months in preparation for the Music City MQG shop hop to FIVE different quilt shops in the area. Excited to share my haul and a glimpse of the shops tomorrow!
Until then… here’s precious Cora and her favorite bag from this weekend. (Sorry my foot is in each picture… oops!)
It seems like the weather went straight from cold to hot this year, with barely any temps in between. I realized the other day that we’re more than halfway through the year, and I’ve hardly spent any time out on the screened porch at all. The cats haven’t had that problem, since they’ve been sunbathing half the day away for months now… the hotter, the better!
I’ve been trying to make an effort to spend more time on the porch when it’s nice out – if I’m cross stitching, reading, or listening to a podcast on the couch, I could just as well do the same thing outside. As long as I leave a chair for the cats, they enjoy the company!
