Kitties and Curtains

Busy times lately -  sewing curtains, tutoring and watching the kitties playing and growing!

For my sewing room, I decided to go for a cozy look,
with rose patterned fabric and sheer inset panels close to the windows.
(The sun is so bright you can't even see the sheer curtains in this photo!)
I wanted the room to be a welcoming place to go to when I'm feeling creative.
The needlepoint pillow on the chair was made by my mom.

Our house has a lot of big windows, so of course the cats love sitting in the sun on the 
window sills. Here Angus is pretending to be King Kong as he sits next to
some little houses and makes friends with the china cat!

Rosie keeps guard on the front window sill, where she can see and react 
to every bird, cat, squirrel and insect that passes by!!

After a demanding morning of guarding the yard from their window perches,
the two kitties crash in side by side beds and spend the afternoon snoozing away!

Isn't it just the little, everyday things in life that bring the most joy?
What everyday events warm your heart the most?

Things like
flowery curtains
completing a project
enjoying your pets
a sunny window!

Thanks for reading, and have a wonderful weekend!!

Those types of things make me smile too and are the kinds of things that just keep you going. Just make sure you slow down enough to appreciate them right?:)

The kitties look great!

Your studio looks like a little corner of paradise. I'm sure the cats think so too.

Hi Judy~

I 've just caught up with you for a bit, and there is so much to comment on.
Your kittens are adorable, the sewing area looks like it would be a pleasure to sit there, Joyce was very lucky to have won your little piece, your self portrait is perfect- it really looks like you, your sketch of the children and animals is precious, I loved your use of imagery to help you sleep, and well, back to the kitties, you had me laughing with their antics!
Thanks for the enjoyable read!

Hello Judy,

The kitties are so sweet! I am also loving your beautiful rose curtains. You can never go wrong with beautiful roses right:o) Your needlepoint pillow I know you will cherish for life, something special indeed.

Enjoy a most lovely weekend Judy!
