Q--Quilts.  When we got married, my mom  gave us one of my great aunt's hand made quilts. Well, I 'used' it, didn't even think about 'displaying' it because we didn't have that kind of space!  Needless to say, it's long gone.  Now, I wish I'd 'saved' it.  But that's hindsight, right? 

Many, many years later, I found/saved a twin size hand made quilt from my late in-laws house.   Actually, I also 'found' a double size--but it was really 'foul' & even though I gave it to my sister-in-law, who is into Quilting,  I don't even she found a way to 'save' it.   As for the twin size, I am using it.  I still don't have 'space' to display it--so I figured I may as well get some use out of it.  I don't actually wash it; I just clean any spots (thankfully, not many since we have no children or pets in that room).

Quilting is one thing that I've never attempted to do. I Wouldn't have the patience to sew all those peices together.  A friend of mine made a Special Quilt that she donated to our local RSL Club (Return Soldiers League)  She had photos printed onto material of all the local Soldiers who served in WW1 and joined them with matching material to make a large Wall Hanging that is on Display at the local RSL.  It really was a work of art and love.

It seems that we were on the same page today. I finally had enough time to get my head together for my next blog. Next week I'll have the same challenge that you did today. You did well.

Speaking of quilts, I have a close friend who is a very experienced quilter, and gave us one to use while our furnace was not giving us any heat. I had several quilts that my mother had made, but I gave them to our daughter. My mother made quilts with fortrel material... left over pieces from dresses that she sewed for herself. Those quilts just don't wear out and wash very well.

I don't envy your trouble with your new cat. I wouldn't be able to chase after a cat either. I hope you get things settled down, so that you can relax with your new friend.
