Rainy days make me want to nap.......

And it seems I'm not the only one.
Kitty Kate Kat is taking a
deserved rest - she was up all night - 
outside with Muffin Kitty, a big stray
male who has taken up residence in our barn.
He's called Muffin because of his color.  
He's gotten friendly enough that he will
let me pet him.  
When he gets a little tamer, he will go 
have a visit with the vet.

Meanwhile Kitty Kate Kat has been spayed 
and had all of her shots so no little kitties 
will come visiting.

Her real name is Katherine the Great and she lives with
Queen Elizabeth, our English Bulldog.

Deb Strain asked on Instagram if we had 
any furry friends who helped us work.

Indeed we do.  Besides Kitty Kate and Elizabeth, 
there is Jake's Welsh Corgi Dobby.
Dobby got his name because he likes socks.
He's staying with us while Jake is in 
college and now Dental School.

And while the animals are hanging around
keeping us company I have been working on
blocks from our 50th Anniversary Quilt - above - 

and the Clover Meadow Wallhanging.

The quilt we're featuring from our vintage book
Country Paths is November's Song

You can get the book with the pattern for 
this quilt by clicking here.

Meanwhile Fall is just around the corner
and to help us get ready, our Deal of the Week
is 20% off our Pumpkin Man Quilt.  
You can get your kit by clicking here.

I hope you and your dog (or dogs & cats)
had a good National Dog Day.

And I'm sorry, folks but the kit won't be in
the store until the 28th.  
I clicked on "Publish" instead of "Schedule".

Keep on quilting



  1. What gorgeous pets you have around you. They are very lucky!

  2. Love your animals! I remember your adorable Spike. Yes, I’ve been a fan for awhile andhave some older patterns, newer patterns and some books. I’d so love to see you or a retreat or our guild have you visit. At the present time my daughter’s staying with me through several back surgeries. So we have two dogs and two cats in residence. I make homemade chicken liver treats for them and I have four sets of dark little eyes parading behind me and swarming the kitchen. Don’t tell the chickens about those chicken liver treats👀 🐓 The cats are as bad as the dogs waiting for the liver treats. Love the big fat chickens!!
