Cats & Quilts - a match made in heaven... (except maybe those stubborn little clouds of fur that latch on to the fabric!)

Kitty Quote of the Day

I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul. - Jean Cocteau

Floral Friday

I thought I would join in Floral Friday today hosted by Bronwyn at Korumburra Quilting.

My pictures are taken in my home town of Nelson, New Zealand. They are beautiful though bittersweet as they are all around the Nelson Hospice where we lost my Aunty to cancer in 2008. It was nice though to have such beauty close by & seemed right with Aunty being an avid flower gardener.

This is the entrance & the beautiful blossum that was in flower at that time.

Next door was the administration building with lots of lovely flowers.

And because I can't go anywhere without meeting a cat, here is my very large friend who made my day by spending 10 minutes with me in the sunshine.

His mum needs to place him on a bit more of a restrictive diet!

Happy stitching

  1. What a beautiful floral display Tracee. Flowers are definitely a comfort in times of sorrow and these you have shown are simply beautiful.
    What a lovely portly puss. He looks like a real charmer.
    Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. Beautiful flowers and an adorable chubby cat. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Beautiful blossoms and gorgeous purple pansies. I loved the building it was lovely on its own. I'm glad you met a feline friend to keep you company.

  4. The trees are beautiful and I love the purple pansies. The pussy is a fatty. Too much time lying in the sun :)


Thank you friends for leaving a comment on my post - love to get them! Tracee xx
