Mother's Day, Stash Report & Contest

dish full of asparagus thingies
flowers from Wisconsin

I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful Mother's Day. Simone and Mike came for lunch (Simone to cook, Mike to eat). Simone makes the most wonderful crepes filled with ham and cooked asparagus and topped with hollandaise sauce. Two of these will fill you for hours. They also gave me a gift certificate to my LQS, The Quilted Cottage. JJ and the kitties, Jasper and Annie also gave me certificates to The Quilted Cottage. (I wonder where they got that idea?) From Wisconsin, Craig, Kari, Abby and Ian sent me a beautiful bouquet of pink flowers in a pink, plaid vase. They're so pretty. I also received phone calls from Kalamazoo and Wisconsin.

Mike and I beat Jim and Simone - best two out of three in Euchre, the four of us walked to my folks and visited with my mom and dad, and my Tigers won again, sweeping Cleveland. I had a great day!

"Caption the Cats" Photo Contest
Now to distract you from my failing stash report, I'm going to have a contest. It will be called "Caption the Cats" Photo Contest. I just know Jasper and Annie were having a heavy conversation while they watched the bird feeder the other day from the kitchen window. I'd like to hear what you think they were saying. To enter, make sure I can contact you with an email address. You may enter multiple captions, but post them individually, please. The winner will receive fabric, yet to be chosen. The contest will end Saturday, May 16th at midnight. Get those thinking caps on and send me your thoughts. Here is the photo.

Hi Jeanne,
I think the Orange one would say to the black one:
Did you see the wings on that one? Its making me hungry just looking at her!!
The black one responds" Nah, She is not my type - See that cute little one beating her wings way back there
- She's mine, all mine"!!!

I am not sure if you are looking for a conversation or if you want a header type caption.
I am sure someone will come up with something more original..
I hope you get lots of funny replies.

They are quite the pair of cats - so different in coloring. I am betting one is bossier than the other.

Think of all the bird seed we could save if she would just let us out there...

"you're right -- this DOES qualify as cruel and unusual punishment!"

"Looks like it's smorgasbord and we're on a diet again!"

Lori in South Dakota said...

"I don't see what the big deal is about watching birds eat seeds. They could be watching us eat the birds!"

Lucky you, those crepes look yummy! Sounds like you had a very nice day.

As for the cats, "Uh, Jasp, can we switch this channel to something more exciting?" (Our cats just love their Kitty TV, and I'm assuming yours do, too.)

LuAnn said...

Happy Belated Mother's Day to you, too!!! We went to Huntsville to spend the weekend with her daughter since Friday was her birthday. Your flower photos are beautiful.

"Hmmmm, should we eat them for brunch? Or wait and have a larger dinner?" Love your garden!

Catherine said...

"Hmm, do we have any Grey Poupon?"

Lissa Jane said...

Hmmm I am thinking the pussy cats are saying to each other 'are you a breast or a thigh kitty???'...
Love the pics those crepes did look yummo... and a gift certificate to a quilt store? perfect gift if you ask me!

Beth said...

You had a lovely mother's day, Jeanne! I think that Jasper said to Annie: "Never mind, Annie...They are just birds...."

I think the title is

You are doing way better on your stash busting than I am....actually I'm not stash busting yet, just thinking about it. I think your kitties are saying ....the orange one -"Ok, you make weird faces and distract them and I'll run out the door and surpise them."
