Nosey Parker's a busy kitten and she keeps us on our toes. Speaking of toes- High Four Me, Man!
One of her first forays onto the back deck meant encountering a big, green locust. She was lucky to see it, usually Shanzie eats them before we ever see them. Ick. :) Artemis was supervising to make sure no animals were harmed in the filming of this event.
I don't know what the attraction is between cats and quilts (other than it's very one-sided!) but if you can't find Nosey Parker, you should look more carefully. We've learned this the hard way.
She doesn't even care if it's finished yet, she wants to lie upon it and snooze, after she's finished terrorizing the big cats and more recently- knocking lamps off of desks. CRASH! Nearly gave me a heart attack, little snot. But it's hard to get mad at this....
I plopped this freshly quilted zigzag quilt on the floor so I could get a photo of it, not her! Bam, she was on it like a duck on a june bug... but she was still a little dozy. Or bored. It's hard to tell which with her.
Who wants to come over and sew my binding down on the back of the quilt? Anybody? Please? And hurry, I want to wash it so it can crinkle up! This quilt is FOR the cats, it's for the foot of our bed where they lay most of the day. There's another one coming, too, as this will only cover one half of the foot.
Jim's been busy doing stuff around the house. Turns out- August is a lousy fishing month around here, who knew? So he's been splitting wood, washing rugs, helping me clean house for company, cleaning shrimp, mowing the grass, tinkering with his new chipper that he bought for parts for the splitter (same engine) and now he's gone to get a new/used push lawn mower as our old one finally gave it up after about 20 years of service, hard labor. It was Pops' before it was ours and he took such good care of it, but our slanty yard and unforgiving terrain finally did it in. It doesn't want to start any more so we're putting it out of its misery and getting a replacement.
Oh, and you know you might be a redneck if you take all your nice area rugs outside and PRESSURE WASH THEM. lol At least we got some of them dry and back inside before the rains came.... now we're scurrying around looking for a big flat dry area to lay out the last one. It's hard to do when it's monsooning! We got another inch of rain last night. We need the rain, I'm not complaining, it's the timing I'm bitching about.
OK, I'm going up to sew and stuff, ya'll have a great day!
