About 15 years ago, we started to foster cats. To date, we have fostered 187 cats in need of a quiet place to stay and get ready to find a forever home. Shortly after that, I started getting gifts of cat fabric. I may have also added a few pieces myself.
I decided to take inventory today.
I found 17 cat fabric in pieces 1/2 metre or more.
Then, I found another piece.
That doesn't count the scraps and fat quarters. There is lots of variety, too. I may have a problem. Or maybe, I just have a carefully curated collection of feline fabric art.
I did use some this week.
The Lyndhurst Feral Cat Project is having another fundraiser soon. so I made a set of small pouches. Then, I started looking for something to use for another bag, and was surprised at how much fabric I had. I do have to match the size of the print to the bag. Many of those prints are quite large. You will have to check my next blog to see what I chose.
Meanwhile, the dining room conservatory continues to delight. Today, we saw the first of the amaryllis blooms.
There are three more still to come. As you can see the azalea is still blooming. The hibiscus puts on two or three flowers every week. And, I got a surprise in my groceries, this week.
There were purple carnations at the checkout and the household shopper knew I would delight in them. After nearly a year, stuck at home, little surprises can really cheer one up.
This week, we also welcomed a new foster cat.
This is Maggie and she is staying with us while she recovers from surgery.
