What a Bunch of Squares
May 27, 2006
So, so sorry to hear about Kitty. She was such a sweet, petite cat. And, maybe it was from being named after an old-time Country & Western star, but (sing it with me!) she was a one-woman cat. She never sat on a visitor’s knitting. Although once she did jump in my lap by mistake. (I was hunched at your computer, wearing glasses, and knitting–a mistake anybody could make.) Both of us were surprised. I envied you having a Higher Order Pet, and such a kindly one.
I’m heading offline for what we hope will be sunshine and Fambly Fun this weekend. I’m feeling a bit rugged, because for the past two nights I’ve stayed up ’til all hours…
Piecing the 25 squares of my interpretation of Denyse Schmidt’s quilt What a Bunch of Squares (note the template-free wonkiness of those strips–it’s a gift, people).
There is so much about sewing that I didn’t know, it’s breathtaking. But what fun to race through a queen-size quilt top. (Can I just offer up a small, ardent thanksgiving for this thing called the ‘needle threader’, which we didn’t have on the home ec sewing machines in the 7th grade?) It’s killing me not to take the machine with me for the weekend, so I can Git R Done!
Happy holiday weekend to those in the US!
