Spiderweb and Roy

I'm continuing to make progress on the spiderweb. I have quite a few quilts that I'm working on, but this has become my favorite. It has a lot of steps, and I'm usually in the mood for one of them...from piecing the wedges to pulling out the fabric to constructing the block. But I'm not sewing as much as I might like because the Kitten U duties have grown.

In case you missed the earlier post, this is Roy. I have since learned that Roy is short for destRoy. He's tiny and adorable, and his very favorite obsession is biting hands. Moving hands, still hands, and even hands hiding up the sleeve or anywhere one might try to put them to avoid clutching claws and sharp teeth. And no he is not feral. He's a lovebug that wants attention 24/7.  So we're working on it. He now knows that he shouldn't bite me, but apparently biting hands is his chocolate.

And now I'm worried that Kitten U is not meeting its performance standards. This fella was added to the adoption roster on Saturday when there were 43 kittens available, and he was adopted that day. Tommy the kitten and Bob the poser kitten were also adopted, and now the roster is down to 36 kittens. Unfortunately, Daytona is still waiting. And yes, I have considered a stealthy Roy for Daytona switcheroo, but don't tell anyone.


  1. Spiderweb is moving along, it really is looking so good!
    You sound as you need to be wearing strong leather gloves at your place, Roy is certainly keep you busy.
    My fingers are still crossed for Daytona!

  2. Love the colors in the spiderweb blocks. Roy certainly is a cutie pie!

  4. Your spiderweb is just beautiful! And Roy - oh boy - What a character!

  5. The spiderweb is gorgeous. Can't believe Daytona hasn't been adopted yet. If Roy doesn't shape up he never will be!
