There are often many projects whizzing around in my head but none that I want to start immediately. So I often drag out an old unfinished project and before long I'm thinking 'Oh I could do this. And this is what happened when I woke up this morning.
Just starting on the penny rug somehow led me to this. Plus an overwhelming desire to make something in red and the fact I've been wanting for sometime now to make a mat for my cat. So I've been making Yo-Yos today. How good do they look displayed in the bowl. Looks like I will need to make some spares.
This is what I plan to do with them and this is my cat. There was a fabulous homeware shop just around the corner from work and I would often skip lunch for a little bit of retail therapy. The cat sat in the window for a long time before moving to a top shelf in the shop. The shop was closing, the shelves were emptying and still the cat sat there, looking a little sadder each time I visited. Now I guess some of you are thinking that I should have left the cat on the shelf, but I couldn't. For reasons I cannot explain I really like this cat. Yes it is starting to crack and the ears are a little tattered but I don't see any of this. It crossed my mind, as I was working on this new design, that I might just be a little mad. I've sized it so the cat fits perfectly. But I've had fun and best of all I have some new ideas for quilt.
