Thank you all for your lovely comments. Unfortunately The Beautiful Cat hasn't returned and it doesn't look as if she will. The problem with living where we are is that we are surrounded by countryside and it is quite possible that she has been "foxed".
Considering what has been happening in the world over the last week or so, our loss pales into insignificance. All I can say is that Magic has left a huge hole in our lives and she's very much missed.
I went into a slump just after she disappeared and haven't been able to do any sewing at all.
I suppose it was because my quality controller is no more. However, this last weekend I got my houses quilt out and started quilting.
Can you see "liquorice"?
Oh my goodness, look at those fans! Did I really do those?
As you might have seen from the side bar on the right, I've joined Project Improv.
I've opted for the blue and green charity block which shouldn't be a problem. Now all I've got to do is to dig down into the depths of my imagination and come up with a design for my quilt. I have got an idea based on one of my favourite Gwen quilts, but I'm still not too sure about it.
In the meantime, I've got a bit of a problem and I was wondering if you could help me out. I'm not at all sure what to call the houses quilt.
I originally thought "Candy Houses", then "Sugar Sweet Houses", then "Sweet Houses", but none of the names grab me. Liquorice Houses was mooted at one point, but doesn't seem to hit the spot either.
Anyone any ideas?
