Tentmaker Applique and the Baby

Just a quickie post to let ya'all now that Pokey is doing great and everything is good here. I'm still spending loads of time with her - as much as she'll let me. She has a check up on Friday so after we get the results of the blood test from that visit we should know even better how she's doing. But trust me, she's herself again.

We did find out yesterday that her pancreas is working well (that's a relief) and she doesn't have leukemia or any frightening disease like that.

Here are a couple of pics I haven't shown you before of Pokey lying on an Egyptian Tentmaker Applique quilt from Cairo. These photos are from a year and a half ago.

I was actually trying to take a pic of the wallhanging, not Pokey, but you know how that goes.

lovely quilt. glad to hear your cat is better.

Phew! I'm so glad for you that Pokey is recovered!

I'm also so happy for you that you came away from Egypt with a gorgeous applique! What a treasure. I had the honor to see quite a few in person when jenny Bowker brought some (and an artist) to France a few years ago. Unfortunately my pocketbook wasn't quite up to the standards of the applique and I couldn't bring one home at the time. I absolutely love the blues they use and yours has it in spades! Gorgeous!

So please Pokey is on the mend. As for the quilt, its stunning, I have the priviledge of owning two myself. they realy are works of art!

Beena said...

Pokey is a welcome addition to any quilt pics! It's especially good to see Pokey pics after your scare with her. I'm relieved to hear she's herself again, Tonya. This quilt is amazing! I love the color, and it screams against the coloring in Pokey. Just an explosive use of color!

Wonderful news about Pokey! And that quilt is gorgeous!

Sharon said...

I'm so glad to hear that Pokey is starting to feel like herself again! I hope the blood tests come back with good news! I'm sure you're feeling better now too!

Wow, what a stunning quilt! The colors just glow. What an intricite (for some reason, my brain can't spell that word tonite!) applique pattern. Just gorgeous.

mereth said...

That's the news I wanted to hear! I'm so glad that she's much better and hopefully you can stop worrying now.
She certainly seems to share your love of textiles, and knows how to arrange herself so that she's shown off to perfection. Long may she continue do so.

Cheryl said...

Glad all is well. I don't have a cat but when I visit Dave and Kathi, snickers can not stay off my quilting projects that I take along.

That kitty is so photogenic... she looks so pretty against that quilt. I am glad to hear that she is back to herself again. Enjoy her and your fabric!
