It's a Sunny Day

The possibilities are wide open this morning.
Mom laid all her squares out on the table so we could see what she has been working on for the last few weeks. She really loves vivid solid colors, kinda like the Amish quilts except she has no black involved. We can't wait to sprawl across this colorful quilt on the bed. Every quilt has to be cat tested you know.
Today, she is going to work on the modern version of the Dresden plate, it doesn't look as nice to me as the Dresden plate but Mom seems excited.
Especially after yesterday's hassle with the sewing machine. Mom fussed with it again last night and  made one more change. She switched the thread, and rethreaded the machine. I just had to go see when I heard her laughing. For the life of me I cannot figure women out. Dad says he can't either. There she was sewing away on her Dresden plate. The zig zag isn't perfect, it still has several skipped stitches but Mom says she will live with that since she will be machine quilting the whole thing and that will most likely not show.
My brothers and I like when things work out for our Mom. Don't ever think a cat doesn't notice, we are more observant than you think.
I'll give you an example if Mom is puttering in the kitchen, we all know that if she is fixing something on the stove then of course it's time for our dinner. We all meander into the kitchen to help her and she rewards us with the most awesome treats.
It's the little things that matter, that add up in the end with the priceless thrilling magic found only in a feline friend. :)
