Not coffee

Another day, another cat check. His official name is Kitty Ramon.

and he is not supposed to be on the table and I would prefer that he not be so interested in my stitching…

but he was glad for the visit, at least for a while, then he wandered off to do whatever cats do.

I spent the rest of the day catching up on other projects –

the June portion of Royal Gardens SAL from Fox&Rabbit is done.

which, at slightly more than 2k worth of stitches has been the smallest segment so far….

AND! the Brown Bat is done.

today’s stitches included 1 & ½ trees, a couple of leaves…. and then I looked at his head and realized that a portion hadn’t been transferred to PatternKeeper so pulled out the original pattern and added the stitches around and under his eye. A bit of check does make  sense.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
