Wilfred, my junior cat, has had a problem with one of his eyes so it's been a very worrying time, as those of you with precious pets will understand. I keep checking him for signs of distress but he is carrying on with life normally while I haven't been able to concentrate on anything. The vet says to do nothing (which is unusual advice from a vet in my experience) so that is what I am trying to do. Strangely, and I thought I was imagining it at first, I have had an eye infection too, something I have never had before - how spooky is that?
The other co-incidence is that I have been struggling to finish this little quilt which has at its centre a cat with big eyes. Actually for a few days I couldn't look at it but at last here it is -
and this is Bella sitting on it during progress - she didn't care two hoots about her son's eye - aren't cats lucky that they don't worry?
I love spotted fabrics but they can be rather attention seeking so I use them with caution. I thought I would try this one on the reverse and used quite bold quilting motifs with a preponderance of hearts, because I love my cats!
This is another quilt based on the same pattern as Blanket Star and the Kaffe influenced quilt in earlier posts. The cat image was worked similarly to my Cow quilt panel, on Rustica with Appelton's crewel wool and was based on a cat seen on a sampler.
Happy Thanksgiving to all in the USA from all us Brits.
