Hands2Help

Hello everyone , and Happy Mother's Day...

I'm in a 'finishing fit'  today... how fun is that?  

Two quilts , both twin sized, for the Hands2Help Initiative :

 Both classic "scrap" quilts - the first one of leftover strings from lots of other projects - and the second made from crumb blocks, using the tiniest of small bits leftover...  and don't you love how turquoise blends it all together?
These just went through the washer, and will get boxed up in the next few days. 

Hope everyone is having a great weekend, a nice Sunday, and some great sewing .

It Was a Rescue

WELL -  this post is not about quilts

It's about Kittens !!!

Last Tuesday, 4 kittens showed up outside my office door, happily playing.

(not good)...............

That afternoon,  they climbed up some vines on the side of the building - up to the Second Floor level

(REALLY not good)

They didn't come down.

Wednesday - they are crying - sad little mews... 
Thursday - still crying - oh me what can we do?

Call in the troops !  Ladders, grabbers,  cat food.............they were afraid, and climbed higher...

(no, kitty, not good, not good)

Then - serious help arrived...  a cherry picker !!!

They climbed lower, but not low enough...........

But two fell, and were caught !    oh good, 2 down, 2 up

But, look, we can still see 4 ....

(NOT GOOD - oh my there are SIX of them)

Ladders - kitties, don't run away... bribing with food............. and
2 more caught !!

Day 5 - one more caught - but one very hungry kitty still in the vine !!

Day 6 - a woman showed up and said "I can talk that kitten down"...

For an hour she stood under the cat, met its gaze, and mewed at the cat, the cat mewed back, and moved lower, and then lower, and lower,  and

RESCUED !!!!




This one, the little grey Tabby, is the Leader of the Pack - I just know it was his idea to go up that Wisteria vine - somehow you can just tell !!!


Thank goodness for a wonderful rescue organization who will take these babies and get them adopted.   Hooray for the rescue organization. 
 
Who could resist these eyes?
