Gratuitous Pet Picture Friday

Sounds like a good thing to start up, anyway. I don't update this enough, and I need to start having things to put up, even if this is just a little personal blog.

So meet Bandit! The Seven Pound Wonder, Bandaroo, Bandito, so on and so forth. On his brand new bed! Sister was scandalized because the tag said "cat bed", but he's so small he fits it.

Under the cut, have some more pictures of the animals that inhabit my house!

Progress! Of sorts.

First! Happy Bastille Day! It's practically over now, but... yeah.

I haven't been able to do much work on this here lately, but here's a progress report on the Chains o' Caithe quilt.

Quilting so far

I decided for this one to do an overall pattern to help push it back so you can focus on the fabric. And also to help make it sturdy, since I know it'll see plenty of use once it's done. Since there's so many squares and corners and the like, it's a squared-off meander!

Chain of Faith backing

The color of the yellow is way terrible here, but you can see the pattern a little better. The thread is a brown-orange-yellow color, which I think is nice with the brown-green-yellow fabric. You get a better idea of the yellow in the next shot.

New glasses!

Also man check out these sweet glasses I got in the mail! I've kind of become obsessed with this style of glassware as of late. I've been scouring the internet trying to find moremoremore at reasonable prices. This set here I scored for $10! Sweetness! 
...But I still want more. Mom is amused.

Update on the Chain o' Faith Quilt.

It's been too long, so here is a small update on what I've been up to!

The clothesline isn't the best to show it off on, but I don't have much of anything else.

I'm quilting it now, so soonish I ought to have it ready to finish!
