The deluge of work I expected arrived and haven’t had a chance to do much stitching at all this week, but am getting close to finishing piecing the table runner. I think by the time tomorrow night comes around, I will have the piecing finished and can get it basted and start quilting it.
Once the workload eases up a bit, I plan to put together a small quilt using these half hexagon blocks in ’30s prints.
Peonies are my favourite flowers and, when they’re in season I make a point of having a few in a vase. The smell, every time we walk past the piano where the vase is, is just incredible.
This is our little cat, Smokey, who had some serious health problems last summer and finally left us in early September. She was a tiny cat, only about 7 pounds, but she ruled the roost — the two 25-pound boys definitely were no match. She loved it when her basket was placed on a chair — she could watch over the antics of the boys. She had the loudest voice too — we think she may have had some Siamese in her background.
That’s a great picture of Smokey 🙂 And I love the peonies too. I haven’t been deadheading my flowers outside, so the cosmos and dahlias are taking a little break.
those half hexagons are great- and lovely peonies, too! I can almost smell them here…
Very nice tessalations!
