Saturday night update

Have been so busy lately, there has been no time to post...or quilt. We have an entire month of Jewish holidays now, so there is a lot of shopping and cooking to do. Whole days spent in synagogue and lots of company for meals. Plus in a week we will make a Bat Mitzvah dinner for Menucha, who just turned 12. We decided to make Chinese, so I have to get to work on the food--Pepper Steak, Sweet & Sour Chicken, etc. We can't get fortune cookies here so my DH brought a CASE of them when he came from the States. Will serve them with scoops of sorbet for a light and refreshing dessert.
Of course if you looked at my Profile you are probably wondering why a nice vegetarian like me is cooking all that definite carnivore food. It's because I am a VERY nice vegetarian, who cooks meat and stuff like that for anyone who wants it. I can cook a brisket with the best of them! I don't taste the meat when I cook it; I just cook by sense of smell. It's a little bit strange.

The little kitty is settling in nicely. She is very affectionate, and sleeps with Menucha in her bed every night (how can I get a photo of that to show you?). I want very badly to call her Abby, but Menucha is still not sure about the name.

Did get the 3rd border sewn onto the Spiderweb quilt. And tonight I almost finished sewing the strips together for the 4th one. Hope to finish it in the morning and sew it on.
I learned one thing from doing this quilt: when you're making a scrap quilt, it doesn't really matter what colors you use, or what fabrics, as long as there are a lot of them and as long as you make sure you have good CONTRAST. Does anyone else find that to be true?
