My Halloween throw is done YAY! The wind was blowing so I didn't get a very good photo. Anyway here's the top;
And the quilting up close;
And the pieced back, I didn't have a suitable fabric that was large enough for the back. And considering my and my husbands sudden unemployment, I didn't have the money for more fabric, so it's pieced. I'm quite happy with the back it almost makes the throw reversible. (have a job interview Monday, wish me luck)
And last, the fourth block in the Fat Quarter Shops Designer BOM.
Have a great weekend!!



Two months, sixteen baths later and we still have fleas! WTF!! This poor wet kitty is just 6 months old and severely hates me. I have bathed her every couple days as well as our older cat and dog. And I just can't seem to get a handle on these damn fleas. We had fleas once before about 7 years ago. A couple baths and spray applied to every fiber in the house and they were gone. But this time it has gone on for more than two months. I'm at my whits end, I just don't know what to do now. I'm hoping now that it's fall the outside fleas will die and I can stop worrying that they are picking up more every time I let them out.
This kittens name is Army, we were told SHE was a HE, after a couple weeks we were wondering where the extra little bits were. Since they never showed up we realized the girl who declared her, a him, didn't know what she was looking at. We really wanted another boy kitty, never had good luck getting a friendly girl but this one is super nice and lovable. And as weird as it sounds she is getting used to all the baths. She doesn't fight them anymore just sits there glaring at me waiting for it to be over. She really likes the towel snuggles that follow though.
