Irreverent quotes

I've been in the habit of scribbling down quotes in notebooks since I was in school. Never did anything with them. My mother is discovering them now when she flips through the odd book she finds.
Once I discovered embroidered cushions with irreverent quotes on Pinterest I decided I was going to embroider quotes irreverent, sarcastic or otherwise and get them framed.   
 This will be an ongoing project.
I intend getting them framed.Let's see if I can find some place to display and sell them here in Coonoor. No stores or galleries in this town.
I have a glass fronted cupboard in our B n B where I'll put them for our guests to view and hopefully they will want to buy. At present the cupboard is bare. Need to  stitch a little quicker I think.
Have a good week.

July just flashed past

July went by in a flash. 
 Got to spend quality time with my family. Drinking tea and eating breakfast on the verandah at my mother's place is something my sister and I cherish. We colour a page in the colouring book, read the newspaper, are delighted by the antics of the cats or kittens. Neighbours drop in , I do origami with the flyers in the newspaper.
 
Rusty, the cat at my mum's place had a litter. Meet the kittens Google ( under the leaf) and Safari(. with paw extended)
I've made progress on my 1 year of stitches project.
In other exciting news I have been interviewed by Sharon B of Pintangle and the interview can be read here. This interview is part of a series of interviews which will run in 2017 as part of the Take A Stitch Tuesday which has been running for a decade. Thank you Sharon for your generosity and for getting me started on blogging.
See you more often in August than we did in July. I hope to be more disciplined and get back to posting more often.
