Quilt challenge



Cutting Table - Viewer's Choice Piece & Comfort REV


I know this is not cat related, but it has kept me away from my blog for too long.


Nancy Brown of  A WIZARD AND AN ANGEL has created a quilt in honor of her active duty military son, for his rank advancement in April.  It is an entry in the United Notions and Moda Co. Challenge to make a quilt for a service man or organization, the challenge named "Piece and Comfort.
 My husband did the quilting.

 These are the main fabrics. 

This is the Pattern I selected

 

 This is one star

Easy Like Sunday


It does not get any better than this!    All three kitties on the couch with Mom.  Angel was not leaving, she was leaning into Mom's hand for pets!

I missed Mom!

Look at the new header!   Our human Sister in Law made it for us.  We are not so shre about that snowball fight, though.  It looks like Angel is after us boys!


Warning, graphic photos!


Before Christmas, Kirby was helping Mom at the sewing machine.  He was laying on the embroidery unit, behind the arm that was moving. Mom looked away for a second and heard a strange noise and the machine stopped.  When she looked around, the needle was broken (all of the needle was still there) and Kirby was setting behind the machine.  Dad notices that there was blood in the table.

 







 He must have been shaking the foot because we found blood on the floor, the storage drawers, and the machine.  There was not any on the embroidery in the hoop that mom was working on.  He let us catch him and wash it off.  We could not fins the actual wound.   He did not limp or complain about t afterward.


Then we left for a week.  Went to El Paso to visit our son and his family (5 teenage sons).  Our daughter was on kitty sitting duty. 


All three were very happy to see up and wanted attention.  None of them have been cuddle kitties, but Kirby has had a change of heart.


 



These two are him, laying on mom on the couch.


 This is another one of him today laying on the couch with Mom. 


 And this one is where he is right now.  He wants to sleep on my feet or under the covers next to me!
I am thrilled! I have not had a nap buddy since Wizard passed in 2008.  I have waited a long time for this!


Mom wants to know if anyone remembers where we got the Avatars.  She  wants one for Max.

Yeah! We got our Secret Paws package!

Merry Christmas to all our friends. We have enjoyed all the cards in the mail and E-mail!   They are all beautiful! We received our package a week or so ago, but Mom made us wait till Christmas day!

   Our package was from Spitty the Kitty and Mary.  Mom picked up the package and called us all in! We knew it was time!
Hey, Angel, where you going?


 Merry Christmas, Kirby!
Same to you, Angel.  Oh drat, Dad caught that nose kiss!


 Look, Max!  It has your name on it, too!
I see that!  

 Hurry up, Mom!  


 OK, Angel!  I am cutting the tape!

 Is every one ready?   Here goes!

What is that wonderful smell! 



What does the card say, Mom?  
Well, Angel, it says they loved being out Secret Paws and wished us a wonderful cozy holiday!  



OK, lets look at the packages!


Gee, Dad, you made it blurry!  Have you been in the nip?


Did someone say packaging?  
No Kirby, Angel said packages!



There is what smells soooo good!  Nip mice!  Two each!  And shinny mice!


What?  I don't smell any thing but wonderful brown paper bag! 


Two flavors of Party Mix and Greenies! A bag of nip, Spiral Spring toys!


Mom got Goat Soap and Cashew Roca.  Dad may have to hide that so she does not eat it all tonight!














Paper!  I love Paper!  This is the best present!
Yes, Kirby you got the paper.  PSSST, Max, don't be so loud and maybe he Kirby will not notice all the nip and treats!



OK, Max, you can have the bag of nip, now. 


How about one of the nip mice, too, please! 



And a green spiral toy, too!

















Mom what was that taped inside the card?  
Angel, that is Silvervine.  You have never had that before.   I will put a little in the box top for you! 


I want to try it too, Mom! 

OK, Kirby, Here is yours.


Yes, Kirby, you will fit in the box and now you have the Silvervine all over you!
The pretty blue wrap Mom has on was in the package, too.  It is so soft and cozy!




Max got his share in the brown paper wrapping!   Dad did not get this one fuzzy, Max was sneezing and shaking his head too fast.  This was after rolling in it!



We had a wonderful Secret Paws Package!   Thank you Mary and Spitty!
