I’ll start by letting you know that I’ll be announcing another giveaway next week. May got away from me!
Long ago I asked my daughter created cards that I would sell at our local quilt show. She helped me work the show for years when I was the registrar, and when I held other positions for that show.
We had a Blue Point Siamese kitty around that time and her name was Measha (loud “e”), she was with us for almost 18 years.
She was leash trained and very smart… as you can see. Why walk when you can ride.
She inspired some of my daughter’s cards and my some of my quilts.
This was a small art quilt top, hand painted with commercial fabric sash and border. I wish I had a better photo but it was ages ago and it sold. I never found out if/how it was finished. I call it Mouse on Swiss with a Siamese Chaser.
We like dogs too…
I hope you’ll stop by next week to see what artistic finds I’ll be giving away!
We live in the city but we are part of a couple smaller communities whose business district has for the past 11 years held a Halloween parade know as the Boo Parade. It runs down “main street” which really isn’t a main street anymore but rather just one of the most used streets running east to west through our area. The start of the parade is only a couple blocks from our home so we usually walk up and stay for a short time.
My favorite part of the parade is when the horses come through but that’s usually toward the end, probably so the marching bands and sirens don’t spook them. I have a romanticized view of horses, maybe because I’m a city girl whose mother’s family owned a blind horse on the farm and I’ve never had to clean out stalls and pick up manure. Anyway, this year I stayed for the entire parade and finally saw horses.However my favorite part of the parade was not actually in the parade at all… Happy Halloween!
