In the Doghouse...

It seems I am in the doghouse today. Ollie is not happy with me - yesterday was "National Cat Day" and I missed it. He is pouting....see his little pouty lip? Guess I'll have to bribe him with extra treats to get back in his good graces.... spoiled kitty that he is....
I had hoped to have a project to show you today, but it's not quite done so you'll have to wait till tomorrow. I have some hand stitching to do to finish up, and a bit of machine quilting. That will be done tonight before I hit the sack. Photos to follow tomorrow...

I had to leave the sewing machine this afternoon and get outside for some work in the gardens. It seems we have a forecast for some snow this weekend, so I am hurrying to get my perennial beds cut down. I now have 2.5 of 5 beds done, so I'm getting there. Tomorrow afternoon I'll finish the side bed, and hopefully get the back bed done. That will leave just one for next week; hopefully we'll have a few days yet that are somewhat "comfortable" for outdoor work...
If you are a quilter, you are no doubt familiar with Missouri Star Quilt Co. They have a very popular website and blog. Yesterday I came across this blog post that I thought I'd share with you. You've probably seen similar "quizzes" - Which Disney character are you? or Which Downton Abbey character are you? or Which  whatever are you?  Well here's a fun one for quilters - Which Quilt Block are you? Go here to take the quiz. Funny- I did it and got  my all time favourite block - Log Cabin!!

Piece,
Linda

Oh I do see that pouty lip...looks a little snarly to me. Ha! Well, I wandered off to take the quiz and I'm a log cabin, too. Hope that you're having fun with the sewing.

Ollie is a beauty even if pouty :)

Ollie does look angry...
It's lovely that you have a "National Cat Day"!
Have a nice weekend, Linda!

Can you believe we might be getting some snow already? Boo!! Oh well, it won't last at all and will be quite wet, cold and miserable though. We've had 6 kids at the door tonight. That's it. LOTS of chips left over. :) Was it busy at your house?

I sure enjoyed your blog, Linda - such beautiful pictures! And my favorite color is blue also, so of course I loved all the quilts and things. I'm visiting from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.
