Can you see the mouse? Nope, neither can I and neither can Abby. She did have one in her mouth, when she came into the veranda from the garden. A live one. Which she then dropped, and has since been searching inside shoes. I’ve lost count of the number of live mice Abby and Ducky bring home. I do wish they’d just stay outside with them!
Meanwhile, indoors . . . my current small cross stitch project has evolved, very slowly from this
I could have worked on it a bit more, but I chose to keep busy last month with patchworking, mainly.
Postie brought me some surprise mail from Lilubelle
a lovely selection of bookmarks with a nature theme.
And postie also delivered another fabric order. I know, I know, I have drawers full of the stuff, I don’t need more but . . .
It was so pretty, I couldn’t resist, especially the second one. My first thoughts, when I ordered, were that it would be lovely as backing fabric for a quilt (it’s 160cm wide off the bolt) but now it’s here, I’m wondering whether I’d dare wear a summer tunic in one or the other. What do you think? Would it be a too much? A bit too “Dances with Wolves”?
And back to cats . . . slightly worried here, because Ducky has been missing since Sunday. We’ve been calling him, and I’ve already put an “alert” on a dedicated site for lost & found pets. Fingers crossed that he comes sauntering home soon.
