Blurry Photo Day

I can't take a decent picture to save my life, so this post will be dubbed "Blurry Photo Day" in honor of my lack of photography skills. 

This is what happens every time we bring anything new into the house:

Callie instantly has her nose in it and then promptly starts chewing on it.  I really think she was a dog in a previous life.  DH brought these flowers home the other day - the one on the left is really different and very cool.  If I were a better photographer, you could see just how cool it is!

And this is what happens when Ozzie decides to take a nap on my cutting table:

Nothing like plopping your big butt down right in the middle of everything!  Doesn't he look content?  This would be why everything I own is covered with fur - thank the good Lord for lint rollers.  If only I had bought stock in them before I became a cat owner.

This is how it goes when you show Callie where you hide her absolute favorite bag of pink sparkle balls.  It is so funny - I showed her that they were in that drawer, and ever since, she is totally obsessed with trying to get in there.  Doesn't matter that she already has 10 of them out to play with - she wants a new one!  

 And here is what happens after she has an attitude problem because she can't get in the drawer to get a paw on those oh-so-fun sparkle balls, and knocks all of my stuff on the floor.  Makes me laugh that she decided to just lay down in the middle of the mess she created.
Ok...on to something else.  As promised, I did get all of my Civil War Chronicles, Month 5, blocks pieced and added to the growing quilt.  Here are some of the 16 blocks:

And here is the quilt so far.  I can't believe how huge it is after only 5 months!

I also wanted to share some of the pin cushions that I have been making to sell at an upcoming show:

I think this one is my favorite (blurry pic and all!)

I might have to make a few more of these.

That's all for now - it is time to vacuum up cat hair!

Have a great day!!
