Here she is in all her glory. She always turns into a "kitten" after a good haircut. She is no longer matted under her front legs and I am sure she can move much more freely now.
The post lady yesterday laughed out loud at her on her stool at the front door. She said she had never seen a cat like her before! Maggie Mae does not care.
She is able to actually lick her skin. I feel so sorry for her with all that fur. I would never have deliberately bought a cat like her. But she was a gift to me. And it did rescue her from a breeding house that had 50 cats running around. Full of hairballs and poop hanging off their furry rears. She was actually having her bottom shaved when I was there to rescue her. PHEW!!!
She is so sweet. She never holds a grudge. That is what makes a Himalayan such a great pet for households with children.
The t-shirt quilt came back this morning. I have the binding and label all sewn on.
I accordion fold my binding after pressing. And use fabric strings to tie them up under use. Then they just sit on the bed of my machine and feed off beautifully.
I have way too much quilting stuff. It is all good stuff. I just have way too much of it. I buy things ahead of time knowing someday I will need it. I have never tried applique'. But I do have bias bars (found them right off). And I remembered buy a package of 200 sheets of heavy weight pre-cut freezer paper from C.J. Jenkins. Think I could find it? NOT!!!!!
After two hours of searching and a major paper cut I did find it. GEEZZZ!
By then I no longer felt like trying this "new to me" technique. Maybe tomorrow...but at least I did find it.
And I also threw away many old catalogs no longer needed.
