Weekend Report

 What a weekend! I think I may have finally caught up on my sleep.
First, I finished the "B' side of my Jubilee quilt. Not only that but I started the "C" side too. How did I manage to do that?! Well Maximus has taken Dorian under his wing and has decided that Dorian is his project. They play together and even sleep together. I think Dorian is learning may things from Max, but he still has some learning to do
 I even worked on a few blocks. All the while a kitten was running across my feet and stopping to bite a toe or two before running the other way. I have a feeling that this will be the norm for a while.
 As you can see, Dorian is not afraid of Max in the slightest. In fact Dorian is the instigator and I usually have to separate Dorian from Max. Maximus is such a good boy! He takes it and only gets upset he Dorian bites his face. Can't say I blame him, those vampire teeth hurt!
 Dorian likes to hide out in his "bed" and attack form above. He doesn't play fair at all. But I believe Max will teach him the ropes before too long.
The poor dogs have lost this bed to Dorian. This used to be where Max would crawl under the blanket to get warm. Well not any more. Dorian has claimed it. He tries to take up as much space as possible. He acts like an only child!
But he learned to use the litter box and so I can't say I don't love him. He is a smart little devil! Now he just needs to give up the bottle. He stands there and watches the dogs eat and drink and it's like you can see him thinking about it, but every time I give him a bowl of milk he ignores it. He just wants that bottle! But I'll keep trying, he'll get it soon enough.

Things are finally settling down and getting back to normal (I hope). I may have a house full but I do laugh a lot, so I'm not complaining.

Take care, Brandie

That is SO pretty - the fabric choice for the pieced blocks is perfect with the ornate letters.
