Back to every day life.
Lemi has come around beautifully and seems to be fully recovered. I fed her medicine for a week and stuffing those pills down her throat put my fingers in danger each night! Not happy with me! The interesting thing is that her personality has really changed. She used to be very aloof and finicky but now she seeks out people's laps, wants to eat all the time, plays with my yarn, sleeps in Choco's bed (during the day when Choco is outside) and has even made friends with Choco. The two of them can be together and Choco won't attack anymore! I don't know if this is an attitude change in just Lemi or if it is in Choco, but the two can sit side by side now! Amazing!
And here is Patora. She is such a fat cat! And she always is getting into something. She seems to find the printer fascinating as it spits out papers to her and she can spend quite a bit of time just watching the printer do its job.
And here is Patora again sitting at the entrance. She is "talking" with a Halloween candy dispenser (I put it away after I took this picture.) The dispenser works by a light sensor and when you reach in for the candy in the dish it talks to you. "Happy Halloween!" "Go pick on someone your own size". Patora was sitting there in the light and every time she moved a bit the dispenser would talk to her. Occasionally she "meowed" back and was making acquaintance with this new friend.
I finally found some time to sew yesterday and I made up two more dog blocks and I'm quite pleased with those. These look like dogs don't they? If I put some button eyes on them when the quilt is finished, you could tell that these are furry friends can't you? These took a lot of time to make and I wasted a lot of fabric by sewing, cutting off excess, cutting off again, cutting off AGAIN, throwing the piece away, starting over... I seem to have forgotten a tail on the one dog but I don't think I can add it at this late date.
And for knitting, I have started a vest for Tetsu. This is yarn from another vest that I had knitted for him a few years ago and that he stopped wearing. I unraveled the yarn and now am re-knitting it. Do you think I'm cheap? Well, yarn is expensive and though I always budget for his yearly vest or sweater and re-knit old yarn into things for myself, there's no way I'm going to get around to my own knitting this year so I might as well use the yarn and save some money!
