Kittens play with Linux

Do you see what I am thinking about doing. I think the farmers wife quilt may be fun.

Have a great day.

Kitten update

The kittens are now 15 weeks old. They have been taken for their second inoculation and have almost double their weight. The little boy went from 1 kg to 1.9 kg. The little girl went from 1 kg to 1.7 kg. He still looks skinnier than her and is coiled nonsense. 

The little girl enjoys quilting with me. I think she enjoys the stillness of stitching. The little boy comes as well and he really loves playing soccer with my YLI thread. This is a bit of a concern as I still need to find a source of it the will ship it to the deepest depths of Africa.

Our older cat has stopped hating the babies and now allows them to be near her and even tries to licked them every now and again. There is hissing if she feels that they have over stepped the bounds.

The granny's garden is coming along. I have finished all of the flowers and have started on the border. Step one is to fill in all of the edge gaps in green. I have completed 3 sides and |I have started the 4th side. 

We have had a whole lot of rain. Thank goodness as without it, it has been swelteringly hot. Hope the temperatures are moderated wherever you are.

Here are some more pictures of the babies this weekend.

Have a good one.

Happy New Year 2015

Happy New Year 2015. May all your wishes come true. 

May joy find it's way into your heart. 

Now that is done, Jumping Jacks it is now January. 
January is always an awkward month. What with taking most of December off. January arrives and so does the stress and strain of working life. My family and I bump along most peacefully and the idea that the relaxed times are almost over is never good. I have been able to do a whole lot of stitching in the last three weeks and I have only one stripe left to add to my Granny's Garden. The borders still need to be added so there is still a whole lot of piecing to be done. 

The Kittens have grown a whole lot and are now part of the family. This box that my husband's phone came in, has been their best toy. Many a battle has been had. It is so funny to observe the kittens tactics. 

Well I hope you have a great New Year's Day.

Have a good one

Happy Boxing day!

Happy boxing day and congratulation on surviving Christmas. 

We had a full traditional Christmas meal and the temperature was 32 degrees Celsius. I love Boxing day as it comprises of relaxing and eating left overs. It is going to be Gammon and eggs for dinner. 

I spent the whole day stitching.  What bliss. No shopping!!!

Hope all that celebrated Boxing day had a marvelous one!

Have a good one!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to one and all and I hope you get all that you wished for.

This is in my sewing room, which is now the kittens bedroom. I normally take this out and hang it in the lounge. This year however, with the kittens, decorations are at a minimum as they tear around the house like little monsters. 
The older cat is on my bed moaning about the messy children. She has come a long way and no longer just hates the babies. She has been trying to clean them, but they are just too fast. 
The dinner table has it's normal Christmassy cloth on it. The kittens have pulled it off twice so far. At this rate they will need to be in their room, when we serve dinner later.
The kittens found a box and are doing the normal things that cats do when they find boxes. This is one of the pictures where both cats could be seen. The little girl was hiding inside the box, whilst the little boy attacked.
Dishes where being done and the little boy was doing inspections. He really is a lot different from his sister. If anything is opened he jump inside. He is totally exhausted at night whereas his sister is still going strong.
He is also a total boy when he is tired and pathetically  mews that he needs cuddles and he is sore and out of sorts.

 I found these images and they are fun.

Have a good one!
