Thea's quilting trials and tribulations.

Life teaches us many lessons! Some of the greatest lessons in my life have been taught to me by my quilts and the people that I have met through my quilting.

Thea's Saturday Alphabuddy

Today was a long day - I am literally worn out... I woke feeling fairly good after the last week - that felt good.  We fed the cats and no Mishka - he didn't eat well yesterday so i have been trying to keep an eye on him... I went and found him - he was laying out in the cat pen and wouldn't come when I called him - so Jay went out and brought him in... set him down near his food and he said no way... so I took him to the water dish - he said nope don't want that either... then I called the Vet and took him in ... we had to wait for an inbetween appointments with her but that was okay - I don't like to drop my cats - I like to be right with them when they are examined - just like you do with your kids...anyway she came in examined him - we could find no problem areas and his kidneys appeared to be okay so no blockage ... she gave me some meds and some stuff to clean his ears with - no ear mites just dirty ears...

He ate dinner with the other kids so that was a good sign - we will keep an eye on him... meds for a week... always worry that they will get into something and he did escape Saturday night...

I worked all day on Alphabuddies... I was not happy at all with the instructions - then they had the border measurements wrong...but I got her done and here she is...

I love some of the pictures that they used - like V for vulture and N for Narwhal - I better look that up before I send this to one of the grand kids - have to be ready...

I also dug out my Cat advent calendar to show Kris what an advent calendar is... I couldn't find my other one - will have a search through the house or back room where everything is stored - I'll come across tons of stuff that I thought I had lost but that will be okay...

here is the Advent calendar

I had just learned how to do bobbin work when i was making this calendar so all the sparkly thread was added by me - it was fun... after I did this I made a table runner for a friend in Australia - I wish I could find her address again - she was my overseas buddy... here is a picture of it... I did sparkly thread all over the snowflakes and the letters and  the snowman... I haven't done it since... it was fun though and i should do some more...

Well that is all I will add today - enjoy and any questions - I will be glad to answer.
