Mystery Quilt 2013 - Finally back on it!

Hello on a freezing Saturday! This cold weather has caused an electric blanket truce between Emile and Nim.

Leela is complete unfazed by the cold. She has the pellet stove and her tail. Sometimes I think she is more tough because she was born semi-feral and started life completely outdoors. I do remember it was a cold night when I went to pick up her up with her siblings.

Today I picked up a lot of cat food and some treats from my mom. Including Yaky Nugget. These are funny treats.

You microwave them and poof...

Crunchy cheese puff.

Today I also picked up something called rhus toxicodendron for Nim's limp. It is a homeopathic medication for joint pain. A friend of mine had success with it for her German Shepherd.

They are ridiculously tiny and the dispenser was almost Samantha-proof until I bothered to read the instructions.Anyway, I am willing to try anything that will help him out.

On to quilting!

I finally returned to the Mystery Quilt and I am working on the quilt blocks step. Misha was right about looking ahead and looking at other layouts.

The layout on the right is the one described in the instructions. The layout on the left is one of the alternates made by a tester. In my opinion, the one on the left works better with my scrappy selection.


  1. That Yaky nugget is cool. I will have to see if I can find it around here for Millie.

    I think the layout on the left looks better too.

    Stay warm.


    1. Hi there!

      Let me know if you can't find them...and I will send you some. :)

      Hopefully you saw my updated page as well. So many options I am playing with!

  2. Nim and Emile do look quite cozy on the covers. My two always seem to find something to lay on. And the one eventually pukes on it too.

    The Yake Nugget looks like a very strange treat. Never seen anything like that one before. Does Nim like them?

    Hope the homeopathic meds are helping Nim!

    Good to see you working on the Mystery Quilt again!

    1. Ha! Yes, everyone pukes at some point in this household. :)

      Nim loves them...probably because they smell like baked cheese and he likes all things edible.
