Climbing Back Into The Saddle

Hello Blog Friends

Long time no squeak. Many apologies.
Life events took over the front seat, but hopefully now I’m climbing back into the saddle.

So, what’s new? Well, we have a new addition to the family.
Her name is Lecien and she wandered into my life at the warehouse after being abandoned in the middle of the Ras Al Khor industrial estate where I used to work.
Little did I know at the time, she was pregnant. (Probably why she was thrown out of house and home)
Anyway, as is the nature of cats she chose me as her new human and hasn’t left my side since. Three of her four kittens have wonderful forever homes with my lovely colleagues while the tom kitty was usefully employed as a mouser in the warehouse.
Lecien is most definitely a sewer’s cat. I’m sure, if she could, she’d be at my sewing machine when I go out. Here she is checking out one of my “toys” giving it her seal of approval. What can I say, cats and boxes…. so true.

Other new things are:
I have finally joined the 21st centaury human race – I have a smart phone!
Remember the Apple sales guy form my previous post waaaaay back when?
He was right! Aaaand, not only that, I also acquired a tab; not just any old tab but a note tab (I really cannot give up my pencil, not just yet)
Now that I have the tech, I need to get to grips with the other the stuff to make it all work.  So far so good, I hope.

My new passion is Lori Holt’s Bee In My Bonnet “Farm Girl Vintage”.
OoowMyGosh, I love her stuff sew much!
Check out her blog for this amazing book and others by her.

I joined the Bee In My Bonnet Sew Along community on Facebook.
Wow! What a bunch of talented and lovely ladies they are.
If you’re looking to join an on line community of friendly quilters, this is the place.
The latest swap is a quilty pocket and this is what I’m sending to my swap partner.

TTFN my lovelies
