I spend three or four hours a day with them! You know why I'm a cat person? Cat's aren't needy pets. Kittens missing their momma are VERY needy, as it turns out.
I know, this isn't what you come here for, but this is really all I have done this week when I wasn't in the garden. It's a frustrating year out there as well. I am battling a raccoon who keeps digging up the pots and fresh plantings, in spite of the cayenne pepper I have been using everywhere. I suppose I should have tried to get some pictures out there. Another thing to add to the list of things I've not done well lately. Sorry.
I did get some nice news last week- much to my surprise, the AQS jury accepted my fish quilt for the Syracuse "Quilt Week". I honestly didn't think it would be up to their standards, but took a chance. Every time I get accepted, I feel like I won a prize!
To make this worth your time, here are a few pictures from the Amherst Guild Quilt show I went to in April. (I can't show many as I didn't take as many label pictures as I thought. sigh) They are a very talented guild, and I always leave that show wanting to hibernate in my sewing room!
|look how tiny the pieces are!!!|
|Probably the lighting, but this one glowed!|
|One of their "don't touch" signs!|
|Binding the corners and curves must have been a Herculean job!|
|I hope you can read the label!|
So there's my sad post for this week. I hope the Russian data miners find something useful here. (I noticed recently much of the traffic to my bog is from Russia, did a little searching and it turns out there is a huge scamming industry over there. They use keywords in blog posts to try and steal people's identities. Isn't that nice?)
Some good news for a change, environmentally speaking. Just nice to read these stories!
I am grateful for:
Quiet time in the garden- sort of nature therapy.
Encouraging words from an unlikely source.
Jamie's kitten expertise.
Hugs with friends.
