1. Stencil quilt design onto quilt. - Done and quilting 3/4 done. They grey cotton flannel is really lovely. 
2. Tutorial for frame purse kits written. - All done except a bit of formatting. Pictures all taken and two examples made. Although I did manage to put the tag in upside down on this one. Dur. It's sashiko on this side and leather on the other - rather lovely.

When you hover your mouse on her stomach she purrs and can also react in various other ways. I won't keep her long but she cheers me up for now since I've been struck by one of these vomiting bugs. Bleh.
