Can I get to 9 versions of this stray cat form before the end of October? Doesn't matter. As it looks here, this patchwork puzzle block is a loose patch right? Loose patches are strays in a way, waiting for a home and a purpose. Such a good symbol story character for me to use to explain how I feel. So I will continue with variations on this cat block through the end of this segment. Continue to post progress on this page. Let me talk a bit.
