Bargain basement center is finished and much smaller than I expected -time for borders. I'd like to use shirts for the inner border, but I am not sure I have enough of any one shirt to do that. I may have to go scrappy.
The sherbet quilt has a back and binding all ready to go for quilting.
In this box is 1,580 2 1/2 inch half square triangles for box kite. It sure doesn't look like a whole quilt - quilt seeds.
I had a stack of scraps that I thought would best be cut into 2 1/2 in strips, so I just used the accuquilt triangle die instead. There are 6 triangles on the die, so one pass was enough matching for one block - easy counting.
A Tale of Cats: apparently a stray cat had a liter of kittens in our barn. She hid them very well, eventually she moved them to the garage. They were more independent by the time we saw them. They were very skiddish. We just couldn't get close. Within a week of seeing them and counting them and formulating a plan, we found the mother dead on the road. Oh my, we don't want cats, I am allergic to cats, we couldn't just let them die. It took 2 weeks of bringing milk to them to get them this far. But if we moved or made a noise, they were gone like smoke. My husband is a softie. He started buying them canned food, and they ate that.
There are 5 cute adorable kitties, but I can't have a cat as much as I would like, and certainly not 5. We made a date and cleaned a cage. We put milk inside and some days we would have 1 or 2 in the cage. When we had four, we closed it and took them to the animal shelter. It was a hard thing to do. And we still have the most skiddish cat left in the garage, and we haven't even gotten close. She won't come out when we are in there with the food.
I don't know if feral cats can be trained, or if any one would want one, but I am hoping they have a chance for a nice home and lots of love.
