Goodbye November, Hello December

This is my last post for NaBloPoMo and I am so glad it's over.  This doesn't mean that I won't be posting any more.  It just means I will only post when I have something interesting to report.  So stay tuned.

This is part 2 of Easy Street with Bonnie Hunter.  Wish I had her handy dandy rulers.  That would make things so much easier.  It took me half an hour to make these 3 flying geese blocks.  I need to make 128 of them I believe.  And I am only halfway through the 4-patch blocks.  Still have about 100 to make.  I think this quilt may end up in a bin like last year's mystery, Orca Bay.  Maybe when I am not so busy, like after Christmas I'll be able to do more on it.

These blocks are purple according to Bonnie, but I wanted to see what a turquoise one would look like.  I haven't totally decided what colours I am going to use.

Here is a photo of my white Amaryllis.  It is not as dramatic as the red one,  The red one had 4 or 5 flowers on each stem.  This one only has 2 or 3.  But I still love it.

Mimi has been sleeping on the heating duct today.  It is very cold out.  We were supposed to get a few centimetres of snow, but so far we have none.  You can see her feeding tube.  It allows food to go right into her esophagus.  I hope this doesn't gross anyone out.  She also has scratches on her nose, which she did to herself when we brought her home from the vet's office.  She tried to push her way out of the carrier and she scratched her nose on the metal door.  I have since made a little quilted pad for the inside of the door, to protect her from herself.

Her fur is getting nice and soft again.  But all she wants to do is sleep all day.  Oh, well, that is what she did  all day before the vet scuttled her butt, so I guess it's okay.

Love your blocks. I don't blame Mimi for wanting to sleep all day. I would too given the situation.

I think Mimi has the right idea! I'd be napping if I could! LOL

Just discovered your blog today, happy to find another Canadian cyber-friend! The colors in your mystery are lovely - will be watching as this one grows!
