Obligatory Cat Post

As you may or may not know, a Cat Post is required every tenth post or so, or the Blogger interface gets grumpy and will not play..
Humbug with Cat Toy, on Mat, in front of the fire, on top of my laptop case.. Everthing a Cat Needs.

Hard life, eh!

And Another Five Photographs of The Rusty Train

Normal Service is resumed.. The computer was drowned in a freak cup-of-tea accident caused by Temporary Teeth and sleeplessness

Busy and Shivering

 This is one of my current projects, a 12 Trees in Black-and-White Oakshott fabrics.. The sashings were a puzzle that I had to headscratch a little to solve.  Layered and Ready To Quilt but I don't quite know how, yet.. I will make a version of the pattern for this.. It's about 50 inches high, and the grey stripes are the back..
And this is Venus Trees, (or possibly another title), layered and part-quilted today.  A lot of slightly odd and a bit random 6-1/2 inch blocks arranged into big nine-patches, overlaid with trees (actually, more trees, as some of the blocks are already treeish) then assembled and (so far) quilted on the block joins, and about half-way through diagonally on all the blocks.. Then there might be circles.. Or something else.. I'm pleased with this one..

It's for Holland in May.. I just hope I can get thawed out before then.. It's utterly, bitterly, freezing here, and I can't get warm.. I have so many clothes on that I'm unwilling to pee, and my hands are hurting..
Roll On Spring!
