Another beautiful sunny day, we are waiting for Mom to finish her blocks so we can go outside to play. She is doing the Ohio star and the Double star for the Craftsy 2012 block of the month. The colors are really pretty together dark forest green, baby pink and blue. In the double star one she added a lighter green with the darker green, baby pink and the blue background material.

My brothers are such wizzes, I had to kill the mole myself. They just laid there and watched it. Not me I pounced right on it and that was that! Cats do have a responsibility to their owners to keep the environment free from rodents.

Quiltmaker has this interesting blog going about their magazine special edition 100 Blocks Volume 7. Mom enjoys reading all the cool blogs. There are so many talented quilters out there, she sighs when she sees all the amazing end results.

I overheard her and Dad talking about the increase in suicides among middle age people soaring. "A report released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reveals that the suicide rate among men and women aged 35 to 64 years increased by 28% — 32% for women and 27% for men — between 1999 and 2010. The greatest increases in suicide rates were among people aged 50 to 54 years (48%) and 55 to 59 years (49%)." 

They both agree that they are really tired of hearing about the Boston bombers, everyday is something more. Today, was the original date for the bombs was the 4th of July but since the bombs were easier to make they went ahead earlier than planned. Why do humans feel the need to hurt each other? Cats snarl, sometimes scratch or bite and its over with. We ignore each other for awhile and then we are back to normal, eating and sleeping together.

Oh well, we have fresh sheet on the beds and I'm going to race the humans to the bed.
