Adventures with Bubbie

More Adventures with Bubbie...

He learned to do this today. he first jumps to the top of set of shelves that my husband built for me. They are approx. 4 feet high. Then if this door is open, he jumps to the top of it and walks back and forth...and he will walk on the door casing above the door, also. This is old, old is not just straight frames around the doors. There are all these little extras. Anyway, the top part of the door casing--it has the board that is directly around the door...that lays flat to the wall. Then on top of the piece across the top, there is an additional piece that is routered....not good at explaining this. Just trying to get to the point where you can understand when I say he has a two-inch width to walk on so it is possible. But he didn't do it when I was taking these pictures.

Bubbie has discovered that he CAN get on top of the fridge--and has been up there two or three times today. For what reason, I do not know. Unless it is just because he can. He is a very adventurous cat...and plays with my husband when he comes home from work. They chase each other through the house.

He and the Puss Puss still race Pops to the bedroom when he goes in there--any time he heads in there they think it is PLAYTIME--even if he is going to bed. They try to race through the door before he closes it.

Sewed a few lines on my scrap blocks, but they just do not capture my heart. And I still have come to no decisions about the baby quilts I want to make. I am trying to not dwell on it so much and hoping that it just comes to me. I really would like to mainly use fabric I have in my stash, but would not mind buying some. Something with characters I could fussy cut or else have little cheater blocks I could built around....we shall see.

I may head over to Arthur, IL to look at a couple fabric stores there in the next week or two. I love to go over there--it is Amish country.
