Day 719

Still being sick I'm not doing much but sleeping these days. I did manage to dig out some little blocks I had tucked away. I was hoping I could get a table runner out of them but it looks like a miniature wall quilt might be a better choice.

Day 718

And tonight's feature is a Marsing sunset.

Day 717

I'm happy to say the sunsets out the window of our new house in Boise are just as pretty as sunsets out the window of our house in Marsing. This is Boise.

Day 716

I learned a few months back that I could put my teeny tiny fabric scraps to use. A quilt shop in Boise collects pet beds for the shelter. Two pieces of square fabric, filled with extra batting and strips and squares and all those little triangle and clipped off pieces of fabric that are just too small to do anything with. I've made several of them so far.

But now I've made a bigger pet bed, one stuffed with fiberfill instead, a bed in a specific color at the request of the owner.

The owner? Our daughter. The animal? Her new cat.

Petri, a girl cat. One of the Valentine's presents from daughter's boyfriend. 

Their task - baby kitty proof their apartment. My task - make a baby kitty bed.

Day 715

Hope everyone is having a good Valentine's Day. Kinda of a bummer here being sick - the best we can do is a frozen pizza.

There was a little highlight in my day. Fish and duck related fabric I won the other day on ebay arrived. It'll be a good fit for quilts for those little boys who live in Alaska with dads stationed far away from home.
