Good enough to sleep on

Last week I had a wonderful visit with my lovely bloggy mate Jules and her Miss Muff.
As you can see she's a damn comfy woman. Sadly there was no room on her lap for me.
Harvey was lucky enough to receive his wonderful quilt that Jules made.
We absolutely love it and are so grateful for all her stitchy effort. If we had a pool room, this would be going straight to it!

It really is as gorgeous as it looks.

I've been trying to do a little sewing when Harvey sleeps.
He's a bit of a spewer and in the various mop ups I noticed that our couch cushions were in need of replacement. I had some Ikea fabric bought last year when this minx visited so I made two using the 22" innards from Spotty. I won't show you the closures, one Velcro, one zip. I need work in that area!
Today I did a little hand quilting.
This is another WIP. I did a tidy up of the sewing room and now feel guilty about all of my WIP's and Projects-to-be so I am trying to get some Finishes happening.
I only did one block and my finger is already punctured and sore!
Obviously I don't have a 'real' quilters callous yet.

The Harvey Monster has his first cold so now I can add snot to the list of gross things that I encounter on a regular basis with this baby. Lucky I love him! :o)
I've made healthy, healing soup for tea so hopefully he'll get the goodness of that even if it is indirectly.
