CATCHING THE WHALE - AND A GIVEAWAY, TOO!

One more row to go to finish the body of my Orca Bay quilt -  I can't wait to add the borders, cause I think that will tame down this very active beastie of a quilt...  my inner border will be yellow.  And then I might add an outer border like some have... we will see...  I still have to make the units for the border...  fun, fun.  Thank you, Bonnie Hunter, for this wonderful mystery...
 Remember I wrote a week or so ago about my kitty who was in the kitty hospice?  Mr. George.  When he was young we called him George Rottweiler, cause he was a mighty hunter and had a very dominant attitude.  Now he is 17 1/2 , and had stopped eating... each night we wondered if he would be with us in the morning...

Well - he has perked up... is eating enthusiastically, and, as you see, decided to take a little nap on Orca Bay...  we are not sure if this improved condition will continue, but, he has been improving for nearly a week now, so maybe... 

Nomally, I would shoo him off the new quilt - but heck, George can nap anywhere he wants to just now... we are babying him with special treats - DH even cooked a pot roast today because he wanted to have the good broth for George - and some meat too, of course.... 
 George says '  hey ma, nice quilt... let me inspect - are those flying geese??? Yum, goose tastes good!!!
 Well, I really need to celebrate George's improved health AND getting close to completion on Orca Bay (oh well, almost close to completion!!

So - IT'S GIVEAWAY TIME!!!!

I am happily quilting,

Glad to hear that George is perking up. I have a puppy that is almost 18. She quit eating dog food so I started making food for her. She quit eating that, so I have had to modify the recipe and cook for her every day. I don't know what I will do when she stops eating this new recipe.

Thanks for the encouraging news about Mr. George, and thanks so much for including his photo! Our Ms. Mindy is 15 or 16 or 17 -- no way to know with a rescued cat! -- and she has done the same thing -- stopped eating, starting hiding, and then recently began to eat again. Hearing about Mr. George, my hope is renewed! Best wishes for George!
