I was looking forward to making more progress on Mum's Quilt this afternoon - I took a coffee upstairs, turned the radio on, made sure the heating was on, re-threaded the machine (after turning up a couple of pairs of trousers in the week) and settled down.
I doodled away at the border daisies for an hour or so, making good progress, but then started to feel the quilt not moving as well as it should under the machine - like it was snagging on something.
Closer inspection revealed Oliver cat also enjoying quilting.
No matter, I didn't want to disturb him, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to cut the background fabric for the Christmas QAL - I'm behind here as I changed my mind after February's QAL session, and so could do with getting the fabric out from the fabric crate and getting that done.
I'll add 'brushing black cat hairs off cream fabric' to my list of things to do...
Happy Tulips - This pattern is making the rounds of blogland. Fabri-Quilt has the pattern on their blog, Inspired by Fabric, and it looks great in all of the versions...
