I had absolutely no intention of blogging this today, or anytime soon really, but this ridiculous cat keeps doing this and I had to share! This is a quilt I’m working on here and there — my father sewed the top on Albus, our family antique Singer sewing machine (more on him another day, don’t let me forget). He’d always intended to hand-quilt it but then, semi-suddenly, decided one day he just couldn’t get to everything he wanted to do. So he asked me to quilt it. With all my experience (ahem-oneminiquilt-ahem). I really hoped I wouldn’t mess it up, but of course I already did. Not permanently, luckily, but having no real idea what I’m doing, I didn’t baste it quite right, so I now have to pull out what I’ve done (not too much) and start from the beginning.
In the meantime, Oscar keeps making a bed in it, no matter how many times I try to explain that it’s not actually a blanket yet. Sigh.
Now that I’ve mentioned this project, I’ll try to get some photos of the full top and my quilting plan sketches to share with you all very soon! And return to my embroidery, the one I hinted at in my last post, which hit a little snag when my original plan turned out, well, crappy. I have something new to try, let’s hope that plan works out a little better.
