A Spring Quilt

For Autumn??  I started this one in April and just finished it last night.  I had to.

At the end of August I signed up the Professional Training Program with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.  In October my classes start in earnest.  In March I will be able to start seeing clients as a Health Coach.  Helping people make the changes they want and need in their lives to become healthier and happier.  I am so excited to be able to go to this school and have the chance to do this kind of work.  Work which is helpful to individuals, communities and our whole world.  Right now I am going through the fundamentals, they call them Warm Up classes.  And I am certainly getting warmer.  It is so wonderful to be learning again.  To have something to share with my family and friends aside from what the Bug did today.
I am sure you will all get to listen to me ramble on about all this in the next year.  I might even learn to take decent pictures of food for you.  I know, shocking!

In the mean time, I have a few other things to wrap up.  This quilt is down and dirty.  Full of short cuts in the end.  I hope to continue adding stitching to it but I also knew I needed to get it out of the WIP stack.  And with all the old fashioned florals I like the random, slightly wonkiness of it.  But you all know, I like wonkiness in general.

Zo curled up on it the minute she had a chance.  When I threw it on the bed last night she was the first in and was very reluctant to let Senor have a place for his legs...

Others seem to like it too.

Do you have anything in the works (quilt wise) that is resistant to kitty claws? You know, has the cloth like feel that cats enjoy, with the durability of leather or steel? Our cats are just loving the new carpet, good thing we're outta here at the end of the month
