Two introductions and Easy Street step 1
2 weeks ago we welcomed a new feline to our family. Back in Sept. we said goodbye to our 2 year old calico, Rory. She developed FIP, a fatal mutation of the corona virus. Little Miss Paisley is filling up a good size hole in our heart in no time flat. She has her big brothers wrapped around her paw already.
Here she is with Colby.
Another introduction is less fluffy but really cool in it's own way. My DH sent me a text yesterday from a thrift store.... a photo with the words "Is this the good one?" I very quickly answered YES. Look what followed him home. It's a Necchi! I think I'll call her Luiza. It looks to be in good condition and runs well. I need to pick up a bobbin to see how it stitches.
The cabinet needs a fair amount of work.... hopefully I can salvage it.
EASY STREET ~
In my last post, I hadn't decided whether I would participate in Bonnie Hunter's new mystery. I did make a lot of progress on Orca Bay at the quilt retreat 2 weeks ago but still have miles (of thread) to go. But I love a good mystery! AND all the fabrics came from my stash. Here are several 4 patch units from step 1. The yummy amber colored print is the constant fabric instead of the gray in Bonnie's quilt. My backgrounds are a variety of cream prints. I'm going to substitute a deep red where she uses purple but the other colors will be similar. Can't wait to see it come together. Gotta love Bonnie's generosity!
