Quilting and Cooking with Moki!

I guess there is no escaping the cold that is going around, do not need to be sick right now. I got some more of my quilt done, though not as much as I would like, but it will get done.

I made this sunflower block, since my sister likes sunflowers and added a saying. I think it needs something in the upper part, but not sure what, maybe a few words like hope, strength?

Not a great color shot, bad light tonight and I am too miserable to try too hard;) This block was from a book by Jan Patek, called Say it with Flowers.


And I decided to make spaghetti for dinner, a good cold killer. I add hot pepper and a red pepper to my sauce, both great antioxidants. Before I knew it, Moki appeared and eager to help. Good thing I was done cutting and that was a piece I was throwing away;)


 Yesterday, the hawk was visiting. He perches on the tall tree in the back of my yard and watches the field below. Lots of field mice to keep him satisfied.

Moki is having a good look in the mug... maybe looking for the cat on the side of the mug? I love the sunflower... they are always happy...

I think the gift for your sister is perfect as it is.
I would love to see a hawk, falcon or eagle in my area. They are magnificent birds.
Your kitty likes to help, mine like to watch from across the room.
Funny kitties.
Hugs,
Susan

Kitty kisses on your dinner is another good antioxidant. :)

Love your block!

I have some hawk friends that I watch near my backyard too. I love that they are there to watch . . . . and keep the varmints at bay *s*

Yes, Moki can cook. I need to train my cat to do that for me. The sunflower is cute. -Steph-

I like the sunflower and a few embroidery words would be a nice accent to the block. Your quilt is going to be so beautiful and made by loving hands. hugs, LenZie
