Octagon Stars Growing

IMG_7833wtmk

The octagon stars have grown and now measure 24″ by 7″. I couldn’t resist working on this last night and, after this picture was taken, added all the red octagons and diamonds so I can start joining the next row of stars. I want to make this about 20″ x 25″ so am thinking I’ll add a half star at the row ends but will make that decision when I’ve got a bit more done.

Spring is here, I think. The past couple of days have been wonderful. It has been sunny and the air has been nice and fresh but not cold. Once it gets a bit warmer, it will be perfect!

Which may be why Baxter’s thinking it’s time to go for a swim in today’s ‘toon.

The kitty tree is his favourite spot to be once again – even at night. We have seen grackles on the roof garden every day this week, so there is now something for him to watch.

  1. Cathi, there is a new word, ‘grackles” I had no idea, so Google came to the rescue, a bit like the starlings we have here in NZ. Yes, a sure sign spring is soon arriving. Baxter, please look only. Cheers from Jean

  2. Oh my goodness! This is going to be stunning when finished. I love the colors that you have chosen to use. And your kitty is so beautiful. Is he a Main Coon? He looks big!:)
