*nowhere near as emotionally traumatic as The Kite Runner, but still ...
I got back from work to this fantastic parcel from Lyanna @ PurplePandaQuilts - my secret partner in the For The Love of Solids swap on Flickr.
Just take a look at this haul! - A beautiful table runner, some lovely embroidery floss, a lovely FQ of Echino, some washi tape (my first!!!!) and an American quilting mag !! Bliss! Thank you so much Lyanna. I love love love …
How great is this table runner? I love the colours the movement in the quilting, everything.
So did Cat 1 - within about 10 seconds of me taking the pic. Manny was run over last weekend so he's still a bit poorly, but he's trying to jump up and be generally annoying (pushing objects off tables, etc., so I know he's getting better!) :
And then, just as I took it into my room to see how well it went with my duvet cover … Cat No. 2 staked his permanent claim.
As a matter of fact, it will be incredibly useful because BBC (Black Bastard Cat) sheds like you wouldn't believe. It's as if you read my mind because I was going to make precisely this to avoid the fuzz build up on my bedding!
So, again, thank you so much Lyanna.
