Catalicious with a dog and a horse thrown in...


Here is Brutus in Month 1 of Bronwyn Hayes' Catalicious Quilt. He's rather cute don't you think. As you can see I'm all sorted with my thoughts of combining these blocks with the Kiwiquilts In the Pink hexagon quilt. I did reduce Brutus so he would fit the hexagaon but I could have reduced him just a little more.The finished size of the hexagon is 8 inches...a bit of a squeeze for a chubby contented cat!  I also think In the Pink Catalicious is a bit of a mouthful so it's now my hexagaon cat quilt. Whew. Lots easier to type too!

Here is Brutus with one of his adjoining blocks. I think its gonna be kinda cool!!

I have just spent the weekend away on a Sisters Weekend. My sister and I met halfway at Auckland where our SIL lives. It was supposed to be a no-male zone but we did have the company of my 5 year old nephew who was happy to put up with us darting around the place. Neither of them are sewers or stitchers (sigh!) so I didn't get to explore any new haunts but I did get some handsewing done while we sat and chatted. So we browsed the shops, went out for lunch, had a bbq cookup for tea, went ten pin bowling and had a lovely time! On the way down I had called in at my ED's for a night. Neat to catch up with her and I also got a horse riding lesson while I was there. A bonus.The photo shows  my ED hosing
the horse down for me..the photo doesn't show it so well but he was HUGE. It was a long way to the ground!!


I got home to find my little grandson (my YD's dog) had missed his Gan-ma terribly! I couldn't resist taking these photos of him in my weekend bag!!


Next time you go away Gan-ma...I'm coming too....
....You can come too if you want....

A long post!! But I've caught you up with all the latest news!!
