Dear Jane, a carrot and kittens

Here's the Dear Jane block C6 or Ashley's Aura. For this, I inset the background circle using Dale Fleming's Simple Circle technique. Then I appliqued the cross on top.

Then I thought I should grow some carrots for the bounding bunnies.

But primarily I am tending to Molly (formerly Hurricane). She has disbanded Team Storm and has renamed the headquarters Purr Nation. Also, she requires a full body massage and facial three times a day, preferably before a light snack. I suspect she is conducting extra-curricular studies in staff management.

The kitten formerly known as Typhoon is now Buddy. He is becoming bolder, more playful and even a bit of a lap hog. And yes, last night he even let me stroke him a few times.

But let us not forget that above all else, Kitten U is an academic institution that sets high standards for its scholars.


  1. It's good to see them studying hard and preparing for success in their chosen fields.
    (Love the carrots, by the way. Though I worry that they might attract even more bunnies... Good thing you've got owls for carrot-guarding.)

  2. Great carrots, very realistic. Another gorgeous DJ block.

  3. Sounds like Molly has finally 'got with the programme'. Great progress.

  4. Oh my gosh...I just love the carrot. Very cute. And the it unusual for a cat to require a facial and a massage? Hmph...sounds like the Kitten U is in some need of tenured faculty. The graduate students need some schooling, and I think Miss Molly and Buddy are up for the task.

  5. I don't know what I like more, the quilting or the kittens. I can't wait to see more on both!

  6. LOVE your carrot block!! and the kitties - they are really fun ;-)
