Patchwork Blanket for Max

Saturday 23rd April 2016

The weather was colder today with hardly any sun. 

A neighbour was spreading fertiliser on the field. 

I made a patchwork blanket for Max. 

He's a bit fussy about where he sleeps but he seemed to like it. 

In the afternoon, I prepared the next metre patch of garden and planted Calendula seeds. 

Chris spent all day doing the insulation. He's now cut all the batts to size. The next task is to fix them into place. 

He will be attaching batons to the rafters underneath the batts to create an air gap to stop moisture building up. 

In the early evening, our friend Henri popped by with a bag of onions. He stayed for a nice chat and a cup of tea. 

We had a cassoulet I had made in the slow cooker for tea. 

Nicely washed down with a bottle of beer!

Well it was Saturday night after all!

Thanks for visiting!

  1. I just love the colours in Max's patchwork blanket. The Calendula will look good against the stone wall. Hope the sun keeps on shining. Have fun.

  2. Chris is making fast progress, and Max's blanket is beautiful!

  3. Max looks like he loves his new "cat pad". Good for Chris! The ceiling is looking very nice. The cassoulet looks delicious too!
