Random notes from a former confirmed spinster who still lives with cats. Some things never change. Oh, and I quilt, hike, and bake on occasion.

Is it too early to say that I'm obsessed with these blocks? Since it's passed my bedtime and I'm thinking of picking out fabric for the next block, it is probably okay to make that call. These are challenging in that I'm doing things I haven't done before and despite the general circular look to the weathervane block, I'm very happy with it. I pieced the Weathervane block and I'd like to give a huge "Thank You" to Grey Cat Quilts for providing alternative piecing advice for this one. It went smoothly, if slowly for me. Yes, it did take a couple of hours to do these, but it isn't entirely my fault. Sammy Davis Jr. Kitty has discovered that if he places a small rodent in the bathtub, the rodent can't get out but he can play with it. Unfortunately for him, I enforce a strict catch and release policy in this house. But, I also enforce a "the bathtub must be cleaned after a rodent has been terrorized in it" policy. Those are really the only rules I have here. That, and no white after Labor Day.
