Blocks and cats

I'm still trying to keep somewhat caught up on my Primitive Gatherings Summer Block of the Week - here are my latest finishes...

I have 2 more prepped and ready to go and started stitching on one of them last night.  I am still trying to work on them a little bit every evening - it doesn't always happen, but when it does it is amazing how much you can get done in a short amount of time.

While I have been busy, busy, busy...this is what the cats do half the day...
 It's amazing that they are all laying on the same bed - but funny that they all keep their space instead of curling up together.  If you enlarge the above picture, you will see that Callie is sticking her tongue out at me! And Ozzie just cracks me up.  Yes...that is my pillow that he has his head on.  They just make me laugh!  What a rough life they have!
Have a great day!!

  2. I absolutely love this BOW you are doing!
    I think the cats just get tired watching you be so productive. And they figure, "hey, she's not using this bed. Why should it lay empty?"

  6. I thought all cats used pillows of one sort or another. One of mine likes shoes for a pillow. Your applique blocks are looking good!
