The Latest From Chilly Worcester...

Hullo... It's another post from Ella
Female servant says that she's got 'blogger's block' at the moment so it's left to me to reassure the world that things are fine in Worcester.  Can you see the cobwebs on my face in this photo?  I got a bit carried away on a 'cupboard safari' last week.  I ended up squeezed behind a drawer, under the work-surface in the darkest corner of the deepest kitchen cupboard.  I can report that female servant has never dusted here.  It made me sneeze!!
 
 
Life has got a bit complicated since my last post.  Some of the local young male cats think that they can just peer at me through the hall window.  I think that's SO RUDE so I've started to glare at them from the lounge window.  This is my irritated face....

 
And here's the 'swishy' tail that goes with it!
At the moment I'm just protecting my indoor territory.  If the servants open the front door when I'm anywhere near, I run away.  Then I prepare to jump on any invaders from a position of strength - such the kitchen doorway.  Female servant has told the neighbours that she thinks I might be a 'swipe first, ask questions later' sort of cat.  She knows me so well!!!

 
The servants had a few days off last week. 
It was nice to have both of them around for fussing AND it was good to see male servant look at bit less tired and stressed.  They went for a few walks and enjoyed the sun.

 
Since January, female servant has been going to the local quilters club meetings.  She started working on a cushion for the 'Chairman's Challenge' while they were on holiday.  She finished it this afternoon.  I think it will look fine once it's got a few cat hairs attached but she's hidden away until the meeting in April....

 
She's used the 'quilt as you go', strip quilting technique.  There's a lot more top stitching than she'd normally do and it seems - from the pleased human squeaks - that she's pleased with herself.


 
I still think it needs 'furring in'!!!
Sending hugs and purrs to everyone.
Stay warm during this cold spell.
 
Ella (and Jx)

  9. Don't worry Ella, once you get your paws into your new cushion those lovely dark hairs of yours will show up beautifully on the pretty pale fabric! 😺😸

  10. Keep warm Ella and don't be too keen to get outside. Our lovely boy George did just that and disappeared. Now you've found your Forever Home you want to just stay there, safe and snug!

  11. Nothing wrong with a bit of added furryness to finish off a project.

  12. We have a new kitty visitor who looks just like Ella but a lot thinner. It ran from me when I opened the door and called to it. I love your pillow and agree with Ella that it will look better once furred in.
