Fabric Scrumminess and Mr Cat
For my birthday, my mum ordered me a load of fabric from Laura Ashley in their sale. Despite her ordering it on 5th of January, as of today, only one metre of it has arrived, which, as I do not need to explain to you, my fellow fabric afficionados, is incredibly frustrating. However, one metre has arrived, and has now been washed and pressed ready to be used in a future project.
I thought I would take a photo of it to show you - it is a pretty well known print (Erin in Chalk), and is 80% cotton 20% linen, so has a lovely luxuriously heavyweight feel to it. However, whilst photographing it, our gorgeous old boy, Mr Cat, decided that he wanted to get involved, as he was concerned by the lack of photos of him on this blog.
So here he is. Well, parts of him, anyway!! He's a grand old man (on 1st May this year he'll be 17!!), who we rescued when he was 11. Mr Deravelled loved him because he said he looked like a lion. lol And he's a wonderful cuddly lap cat, who loves his food and knows to the minute when his next feed is due. Woe betide you if you forget to feed him at that precise moment!!
And here is one of him posing nicely :)
Hasn't it been a glorious day today? A chilly start gave way to a lovely sunny afternoon, and it was a delight to drive home from work today with an orange setting sun warming the fields as I passed them. :)
