Post 199!



I was looking through my quilt room last night trying to figure out what to put together for my 200th posting "prize." (don't worry I am out of gurgling cods....) I think I finally have something that just about anyone would like - fabric! So if you comment on this post before Monday morning (England time!) I will put you into the drawing! What could be easier than that!

Now this will be primarily a post about cats...Italian cats, Greek cats and Turkish cats. Though to be honest they all pretty much meow'd alike! The cats in Turkey seemed to be so accustomed to Tourists they posed on the ruins! The ones on the islands were friendly but harder to catch with the camera. Wasn't it nice of this one to point out the mosaics for me!!


The white cat above followed us all around the monastery at Patmos. I feel a med-cat quilt coming on.....

Your blog is amongst the top 5 must reads on my list every day. I can keep up to speed on what is happening in the UK and wish I was with you when you discover another National Trust house. Congrats on your 199th and soon to be 200th post.

Did you take any more pictures of the ruins in Turkey?

I can't wait to see the Med-cat quilt! (For a play on the theme - you could back it with Vet (doctor) cat fabrics... - I have 3 versions & a charm form a 4th... So they are out there!)

Oh & if I win, I'll take a gurgling cod!

I also love reading your blog :) I too saw many cats when I traveled to Argentina to visit my daughter. They even have a cat park in Buenos Aires.

I hope there are more cat pictures, these are so beautiful.Like everyone else, I love the mosaic one, I'd like to base a painting on it.

Love the kitties - that little tabby is the image of my Tizer. A med-cat quilt will be amazing. Sad that there will be no gurgling cod stories - lol !

I was on a similar tour around to several Islands a few years ago. Our ship the Titan, was comfortable. We visited the Ephasis as well as Mykinos, Crete, Santorini, Rodes and Athens. Was a great 17 day tour. A trip of a lifetime for us.. Loved the cats and it took everything not to pat them. Hubby kept saying, dirty, dirty.....oh well.
Congratulations from Gail in Atlantic Canada...

Count me in as one who's sorry there's not to be a gurgling cod for the prize!

It's fun seeing the cats from different countries. We are not owned by a cat (DH is too allergic) but I have taken to buying at least one cat calendar every year :- )

Love, love the cat photos. They are just excellent. Especially the mosaic-pointing cat and the cat sitting on the....the....I don't know what it is!
