Default OT A Most special squishie

Squishing and thunking are just wonderful. I didn't know until tonight
whether it was better to give or receive; just touching with you is such a
heart squeeze - but I really found a special one just now. It is a luscious
yellow, sort of splattered with a brighter, darker shade of gold and faded
out to nearly white in places, just grand. It arrived washed, pressed and
neatly folded, just what I needed for the creation at hand and I unfolded
it. Somebody's sweet QI had thoughtfully sneaked a substantial amount of cat
hair tucked and rubbed inside. Our big kitty died a year ago and we will
always miss him sorely. How sweet it is to have received a surprise squishie
from a kitty. He knew how I would treasure his gift. If it may have been
your kitty, please go rub his whiskers for Aunt Polly.

Be careful, LN. I haven't mailed your quilt yet. And to all the QIs that
emailed privately and took credit for the special touch to the squishie; now
really. It couldn't have been all of you all. Polly

Maybe they didn't all mail the pkg, but did contribute some of the fur?

Oh bless his heart. Do you know that the only thing that will ease chicken
pox is a Popsicle? Banana is the most effective but some other flavor might
be acceptable. Polly

He's actually doing pretty well. I think I'm more stir crazy than he is...
and I hate using up my sick time! Thankfully, it looks like I have JUST
enough time for this and won't have to use any vacation time.

To think I used to have every day free at home like this. I could be
cleaning... but nah....
