Half-way done and we're bored ...

Recently, this pattern came in the mail for me. Teresa had asked me (when I first started making klosjes) if she could use my idea for making klosjes for a class and I gave her my blessings. It just warms my heart when a person gets inspired by something I've shown on my blog. This pattern is adorable and it is one that will have to be made to go along with my klosjes quilt.

Any of you wanting this pattern, please contact Teresa direct. Speaking of my klosjes quilt .... it is half done. Hallelujah and wax more thread as there are miles to go before this quilt is done.

While I was snapping photos of my klosjes quilt, I could hear some noise to my left in the dining room. Ashes was pulling herself over to be closer to Miss Hank. Right .... I know where this is going and it involves a bit of fur flying.

Getting closer ....

.... and closer ....

.... and away they go. DH and I step in when it becomes a tad too tense but for a little skirmish, we just let them go at each other. Better to do it where we can see them. During the night, they have little battles because we find chunks of Ashes' hair on the carpet in the morning.

It has been a long winter. The girls are bored. They want to go outside, but it has just been too cold. Miss Hank usually sits in front of the floor grate to catch any heat that the furnace gives off.

For me ... the winter has been long too. On that note, I'll soon be leaving for a week in the sun.

Have a great day!
