Last Year

I have not been getting much done lately, so I thought I would look back to what I was doing about a year ago and this is what I found. It's the Stonefield quilt. Coincidentally, I found a block that belongs to this quilt today, and now I am inspired to find the rest of it.

While I haven't been at the sewing machine lately, Molly has. I wasn't paying attention to her, so she took that as her cue to chew at the thread as it traverses from cone to machine. I'm not to sure what happened except all of a sudden she was across the room next to me with thread in her mouth and wrapped around her. I first got it out of her mouth and then was pulling it from under her. She started to play with it. And yes, it took a lot of pulling and fussing before I realized that the thread was coming from across the room. Although I didn't get any sewing done, I did use up quite a bit of thread.

  1. You know I'm a bright KF fabric but I love the soft pastel colours in Stonefields. Do find the other blocks, I think you have a wonderful quilt going on! Naughty Molly for her thread tales - I have the same problem with Leila.

  2. Beautiful blocks! My Gabby, just a year old, also helps me use thread. The other day I went to sew and had no thread. I followed the path...downstairs...and found my spool. Kittens...

  3. This post was a joy to read; you are so witty. But, I'm sure, at the cost of thread, you probably didn't find it funny at all.

  4. Oh, dear. Despite the game's being called "Cat's Cradle", cats aren't really very good at it...
