library quilt

Oh how I love the Elm Creek books. Jennifer Chiaverini makes me want to be one of thos people who can actually finish a quilt in less than two years, but then she distracts me with new potential projects like this one. Surely every home office needs a library quilt?

age: 2

Likes: sitting on the windowsill in the sun, belly rubs, the bathroom, sitting on laps, custard, sitting where she knows she shouldn’t be

Dislikes: being picked up, when someone sits in her chair, humans who take too long to open cat food packets

aka: Crumbs, Crumblina, Munchkin, Chirrups, Monkeypuzzle, Spidermonkey, Kittenface, Crumblebee, Count Crumbula

Age: 2

Likes: being hugged, spiders, crisp packets folded into triangles, sleeping under the duvet, drinking from anything other than the waterbowl, announcing herself with a chirruping noise, pillows, yoghurt

Dislikes: losing spiders under the sofa, when humans go in the bathroom in case they don’t come out


Sometimes we wonder if she’s secretly a Meerkat or tiny fluffy dinosaur in disguise as she makes her chirrupy’ hello’ noise or her chirruping war cry and totters around on her back legs. However horrible your mood, Crumbs can make you laugh.
