Maggie and I have finally found something to agree upon. Momcat brought home the Poky Little Puppy line of fabric and it may be the cutest fabric ever. (Here we are napping after our intense discussion.)
What happy memories this story brings to Momcat. It was her favorite Little Golden Book. She kept her copy from the time she was about 3 and then read it to both of her little boys, until the book finally fell apart. The line from Quilted Treasures is just precious.
We already have three projects to do with this material:
- The Quilted Treasures free pattern for the line.
- The story book.
- A Hyde Park quilt using the line (from the book Super Simple Fat Quarter Quilts)
Before we can get to those projects, however, we have some things to finish.
Today Trouble and I took turns helping Momcat do the binding on the Sweet Dreams quilt for the shop. KT did a great job of quilting darling flowers on it using yellow thread. I took a picture with the Pi-cam of the back as well so you can see the quilting a bit better.
I know Momcat looks draggy and tired in that picture. A few months ago CatDaddy moved out. And just a few days ago he let Momcat know that he wants that to be a permanent arrangement. As a kitty, I don't really understand words like "divorce," "attorney," or "collaborative agreement." I just know that Momcat and CatDaddy have been married for almost 30 years, so this is a big transition.
I overheard her tell a friend, "I'm not going to get the T-shirt that says My husband left me and I'm a bitter woman. Instead I'm going to be grateful for the love and family we shared, and allow myself to mourn this loss, then dust myself off and move on."
As a woman of faith and humor, I know she'll be okay. It's my job to make sure of that.
I wish for all of you sweet dreams,
