Sneak Previes & More Sunsets

This is a sneak preview of the project I've been working on since our arrival in Ibiza: The Quilt Shoppe by Lynette Anderson:

See my previous post to see the whole project, and the fabric I'm planning to use for the finishing.

Last night I needed a change after two weeks on the above project and I started block 2 of My Garden, also by Lynette Anderson. This block is called Birdhouses:

These blocks consist of tiny kits with buttons, and they come with a free stitchery pattern. There is also a tiny bit of applique involved. So much fun to stitch!

We're not entirely without cats these weeks (we have four at home, for those who haven't 'met' them yet). This is one of the two resident cats in our holiday home; a cross-eyed fellow called Mikey:

And of course I just have to show you some more Ibicenco sunsets. The first one was last night's. The sky looked like it was on fire, truly amazing:

And this more subtle version of a sunset was this evening's; you can see the mainland of Spain (Denia area) in the background:

Thanks for your lovely comments.
