Puzzled

Made for no particular reason:

Puzzle ball from Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts.
I just wanted to make something small. Something to keep myself busy. This seemed like a good little challenge. It was. Not too much of a challenge though. Just the right amount.
I apologize for the garden hose in the picture. I didn't want to move it because if I did I would have scared away my background models. Here's a closer look.

These two neighborhood (stray) cats like to spend a lot of time in our yard. I think they're married. They're always snuggling each other and sleeping together. But don't worry, they were both fixed by the neuter-fairy so there will be no backyard kittens for us.

  1. those puzzle balls are so fun, a little to fiddly for me these days, but a great challenge, without being too challenging as you say :-)

    the black one reminds me of one of our cats we just had to put down... They look like quite the pair

  2. I make puzzle balls that look like this. I sew them by hand, though, and mine come apart in three pieces. I see a lot that are anchored at all the points...are your's? You can see mine here:

  7. Bless the neuter fairy! I hope she/he is getting donations from the neighbors. Lemonade stand, maybe? or bake sale?
