Cats in my Flower Garden

I've been AWOL for awhile. It has been a hot and humid week. The heat never used to bother me. I would just dive into our pool and cool off. But the pool is gone. We had to fill it in. So sad. (more of that on a later post) Now all I can do to cool off is stay indoors where it is air conditioned. And that's what I did. So you might think that I got a lot of quilting and sewing done - actually no. Nothing is completed for this month. I did get some flowers made. Five of them to be exact, but I was still working on them last night. Here they are.
"Oh, Mimi, get off my flowers so I can show them to my blogging friends."
"No way! Purrrr. I love these things. Just get that camera out of my face, Meow!!"
"Get off and I will go outside and get you some catnip. Ahhhh. That's better!"

Oh, no, not another one! Now Oscar wants in on the action! He always wants to do what Mimi does. Guess I'd better go out and get that catnip I promised them.

I also got a few spooltjes (klosjes) made. I have close to 200 now. I am trying to figure out how many I will need. Mine are 3inch blocks. If I make the quilt 48in. by 60in. I will need 320 blocks. Yikes! That's a lot! Guess I'd better get back to work.

And here is a gratuitous shot of Felix. He was polite enough to stay off the flowers, but I thought his photo should be in this post too. He is just so handsome.... and huge! My DS calls him 'The Big F".

That looks so sweet, your cats enjoying the flowers! I think you should make a flower blanket for them!

So nice to see those three handsome and clever furry friends! And the flowers of course!

Sorry about the pool. I always loved pools in gardens when we had our rented holiday houses in France.

Our garden is stamp sized and all we can do is put our feet in the bird’s drinking bowl...LOL!

Cats! Can't live with them.. can't live without them! I hope your weather has cooled down a bit. I had no idea that it gets so hot were you live, I just assumed that you had cooler weather.
Have a great weekend Hetty,

Mimi really knows how to pose for a picture, doesn't she?

Way to exercise self-control Big F!
Those flowers are hard to resist.
