I had a great time in Earling yesterday visiting with cousins I haven't seen in awhile. I have many first cousins (about 67, I think) because my dad had 11 brothers and sisters. So growing up any family gathering was a huge event. Most of them lived within about 20 miles of us, so we saw them quite a bit. There were two families that lived very close and had kids that were the same ages as my family, so we were especially close. I heard that one of them was going to be back from her home in CO this week so dropped in on their family gathering yesterday for a bit. We had a great time catching up and I got to chat with most of her family. We spent so much time with them growing up since their ages and our coincided so well. I also visited my parents for lunch and stayed for the afternoon.
I showed you the fabric I bought the other day but not the animal fabrics I had that I was trying to match to, so here they are all together. I also have a zebra print that I will probably throw in too, just to spice things up a bit.
When I'm sewing, Smokey likes to sit on the table by the machine. Sometimes I have to move her a bit so I don't sew her tail into the mix! But Conrad doesn't usually jump up there. I guess he thought he was missing out the other day when I was working on the Zigzag quilt....he got very comfortable. On the plus side, he kept Smokey's tail out of the way! Do your cats do this?
