That was last month

Now it's April and the temperature is 80 degrees and the wind is blowing like March. I thought it would be a good idea to wash quilts and hang them out to dry. We shall see if they dry or fly. Bhu is sleeping, so I won't make him pose for photos, although I will tease you all by telling about the fantastic belleh show he gave this morning! His fur is so soft and silky . . . just heavenly!
This is what I did with the red pinwheels that you have seen previously. It's a little bigger than Teddy Bear size; could be a baby quilt, actually. There's something about the combination of red and light brown that I like, but I always feel it is a bit trite. My sister might like this to use as a table-topper at xmas time.

Couple of other things: (a) Nancy asked me to make it possible for her to get e-mail feeds when I post, so I have made the attempt and, if it works, you're invited to sign up, too (see sidebar to the right, halfway down); and (b) tomorrow Mr. Leeper comes to start the upstairs bathroom demolition and renovation, which we hope will be completed by the end of the week. This also means I'm gonna hafta get up early, which is not my forte. Needless to say, Bhu will be completely freaked, so I have a feeling he and I will be spending lots of time downstairs instead of upstairs. He does NOT like downstairs. Maybe I'll take him to work with me. Hey Bhu, you wanna go to work with me? "Sure. Fiftee dollars an hour for catsultation." Hmmmm.

Yeah, it works! Hooray! Thanks! I think this quilt it gorgeous, nothing trite about it at all. The colors work well together, and, as usual, you put the blocks together beautifully. BTW, someone ID'd the quilt block about which I have been nagging you. It's Cyndi Hershey who once owned the best quilt shop in the area, now closed, sadly, under later owners. She said it is a variation on the Minnesota block. Sound right?

Buh, I need advice: I have not played roughly with my cat since he was a Kitten, but he still wants to claw,tear, bite and generally hurt my poor humanx hands! What can I do to make him like me? He has been skipping out on his therapy sessions and going to the Nip Cafe'!
