We're also cat sitting and these little kitties certainly liven up the household. As soon as I lay a quilt, top o9r blocks on the floor they are straight over to it and lie down. This is a 1930s cutter quilt I bought quite a few years ago, unseen. I'm going to repair and bind the 6 blocks as a small quilt as well as joining another 4 blocks which have an outer border section as another piece to hang. I love trying to give these pieces new life.
There have already been houses lost to bush fires, but thankfully no loss of life. Stay safe everyone.
Hugs, Jan Mac
