Mystery to me....

Not a lot of quilting going on here. Most of my time is spent organizing and folding fabric. One of the challenges from the move is the movers sort of threw fabric in where ever to fill space...so a drawer is full in the bedroom, the jewelry box got a fat quarter, the inside of a casserole dish some 2-1/2 inch strips, and even in the shoe boxes were tucked some 6 inch squares. How they did this without my seeing is a mystery to me. So as I unpack any stray fabric pieces end up on the couch and every night I iron, fold and put away. Guess I didn't get too far last night since this is what greeted me this morning....

I did need a few minutes away over the weekend so I went out and bought some fun yarn colors. Do I have a plan how I will use it? No, but look at those colors....happy place.
The saga of the Tom cat continues. He was back several times courting Goldie this past weekend.He made the mistake of being out in the yard when Macbeth (my Scottish terrier) went out to play. Now Mac loves cats...most cats...maybe not cats who are stalking his little sister.
Tom got out of the tree fine after about 20 minutes of wiggling around on that branch!

Just think how clean and orderly everything will be when you finish....I think 'a move' is what I need ...to clear out or throw some of my 'stuff-n-things' away.....I see you liked the Poisonwood Bible book...ME TOO!..it is on my profile favorites! It has been several years since I have read it.....maybe it's time for a 're-read'...!

I love all your yarn colors. You sound like me. Doing a little of this and a little of that. Good luck organizing!

Maybe Tom just wants a friend. Is your cat neutered? Maybe you could let 'em play together. See how it goes. Seems like everybody is organizing their fabrics right about now.

I would find finding fabric everywhere really disconcerting and DH would freak about the volume of it that he is not normally exposed to, but it does make packing sense to fill all those small spaces :-)

The wool is beautiful colours. For sure you'll create something lovely.

Poor Tom!! I hope only his ego was bruised on this escapade.

I love the colors of your wools. Can't wait to see what the outcome of them will be.

Macbeth is such a gentleman, protecting the virture of his sister from the peeping Mr. Tom Cat.

Glad poor ole Tom wasn't stuck up there for hours on end or a day.

The saga of Tom is amazing to me. I love seeing him through the door. He's so taken with Goldie but then to see him up the tree like that is just - WOW! Love the photos of that, Sio. How cool.

Then back to your fabrics strewn about - love that. I didn't really see "work" because it was just too fun to see it all.

I hope we're done moving now?

Oh what a picture!! LOL I love reading about the cat saga...very cute.

Love yarns BTW...I bet they will be lovely no matter what you use them for.

I empathize with you. When I moved here 13 years ago I seemed to pack every little thing into things I wouldn't have thought to put things in. Roasters, antique teapots, cookie tins. I think that finally I have emptied every thing that had little bits of something in them and so now DH calls the house fabric store explosion.

Oh my gosh, a treasure hunt for fabric! I can't decide whether it would be fun to find fabric tucked in amongst my things after a move or just plain frustrating. Probably some of each ;- )

Any clue who Tom the cat might belong to? Has Goldie been neutered?

Silly Tom! And look at that yarn - mmmmmm!!!!
