A Successful Weekend

It's been a busy weekend and Momcat is heading into a hectic week. She'll work six days this week; three teaching, two at the quilt shop, and one at a quilt show.

Saturday, while working at the shop, she selected this pattern to make as a sample. The pattern includes instructions for a tablerunner, table topper, and placemats. They all use the same basic pumpkin shape, and it's up to the individual whether or not to make them into jack-0'lanterns. Momcat has three weeks to finish it. It's so cute that I hope to convince her to keep it when she's done.

What else did we do?

  1. Set up a success/fail tally sheet for Maggie's housetraining. Can you guess which has more tick marks?
  2. Did six loads of laundry.
  3. Made the binding for a Christmas tablerunner.
  4. Dug up some weeds and rocks.
  5. Has the dubious honor of being crowned Queen of UFOs this week on Stashbusters.
  6. Made plans to go out today after work to lease a new car, giving her old one to Philip.
  7. Finalized plans for her trip to French Lick, Indiana.
  8. Realized that she's lost 1.5 pounds since Maggie joined the family. Walks are helping!
  9. Got the new air conditioner installed just in time for Cincinnati's muggy summers.
A couple of weeks ago Momcat came across a very pretty Treenware bowl and bought it for the living room coffee table. I don't think this is quite what she had in mind when she got it.

Butch and I think it's just the right size for us to curl up in. Not together, of course.

Hope the beginning of your week finds you in a comfy spot,

Thanks MomCat for showing us the pictures of the cats in the bowls. So so cute.

My cats would not fit in those bowls.

I love anything pumpkin! My DGS birthday is on Halloween!

What quilt shop do you work in? I live up near Hamilton, Ohio.
