These are some new pollenless lilies. I always try to get ones that have no pollen as otherwise I have to be sure to snip out the pollen-bearing bits as soon as they start to open - lily pollen is deadly to cats.
I was going to make a blanket for my half of the bed with a flower garden of a mixture of flower blocks and plain ones. I thought it would be a good memorial to Tigger - who lay against my legs at night. Unfortunately I had made 10 blocks when my husband decided he absolutely hated them. I am blocking them here - the blocking board is too small so they are overlapped. At least I found a friend who likes them and to whom I am giving them.
It really doesn't look comfortable to me - but he was sound asleep.
My darling Tigger has been missing since last Sunday. We have done all the right things and he is microchipped - but there have been no sightings. We have to accept that he is probably dead. He was very timid and shy, never travelled beyond a few gardens, and was never away from home for more than an hour or two at a time. I am heart-broken.
This was a technique I had never tried before so I fished two balls of cotton out of my stash and gave it a go. The texture is the same on both sides but one colour is stronger on one side and the other colour on the other - making a truly reversible piece.
