The End of the Snuggles

No, I'm not finished making snuggles, but this is the last lot of completed ones that was delivered to my vet's office. There's another one in the works. I'm weaving in all the ends of the seemingly hundreds of yarns scraps I used to crochet it.

This is what's on my cutting table tonight.

It's a bin of scraps of fabric - some fat quarters and other cuts. Some will go into the wedding quilt I'm working on. Others - into the small cat quilts - and who knows what else? It's a bin full of possibilities.

My sewing space is also the safe space for my cat George. He's just over 16 years old, and he's not well. He's had a very bad fever from some infection, and now his kidneys, liver, and pancreas all show signs of problems. He had a loose tooth pulled, and we're hoping that was the cause - and that with the antibiotics we're giving him he'll recover. But he's had a rough time of it, and he's not as strong as he used to be. He's eating a bit now - something he hadn't done since last Friday, and he's drinking his water regularly. It's a small step towards recovery. All we can do is watch and hope.

It's That Time Again

So, what's on my cutting table today?

Strictly speaking, this isn't. As a matter of fact, it was on my ironing board, and it's another snuggle for the animal shelter.

And neither were these - three more snuggles - but of course you guessed that.

So, the real answer is "way too much!" And this is what it looks like:

Some of it is fabric supplied by a friend of mine who finds all sorts of wonderful things at yard sales and thrift sales. It's being cut into 3-1/2" squares and 2" squares (which play rather nicely together) - to be sewn into yet another small quilt top.

I hope you're having a wonderful quilty day!
