For the laugh, go check out what Carolyn is up to... (At the bottom, but the pine needles in the cat box is pretty funny too...)
Good cry... First the background, 1 family, 3 cars, 3 drivers - dad, mom, teen (to save their privacy, they will be referred to as dad, mom, and teen.)
Mom has to go in for a same day surgery procedure. A co-worker is taking her... Who is picking her up? Dad, no he is at a work related conference about 2-3 hours away, teen - no he has a baseball game - DID YOU READ THAT RIGHT? They gave him a very nice car, buy the gas, and pay the insurance - can he pick up his mom? Apparently not... (But then again, a lot of the things that happen in that universe would never have even been conceived in mine.)
Back to funny and Carolyn, in that same post, she pulled out all of the hidden cat toys... Very cute & I am sure fun to watch...
But what kind of cat did I get?
I had to tie the ribbon to her tail for her to "play." As soon as she removed it, I got a dirty look and she went back to ignoreing it. However, if I hold the ribbon with in her reach, she will bat at it - but she will not expend any effort what so ever!
She will watch RB playing though...
Something quilty... (I shared this before, but this is my blog...)
The "whole" Funky Fish quilt.
A small portion of the back - I was juxtaposing the realistic fish against the funky fish & using my border scraps - making the back wide-enough...
A school of striped bass.
A rainbow trout.
My only wish in hind sight is that I used a pieced scrappy background ala Clowns on Parade, by: Cathy Wiggins.
