Ginger selected and combined the colours.


Red, Orange, Yellow, Green,…


…Blue, Indigo, Violet!

Look at the matching borders on the two sides!


This is a two-layered cotton patchwork without padding in between.

It measures 55 inches by 70 inches.

The beige borders and backing is done with the cloth contributed by Agnes and Gerley.

The coloured fabric is from all the left-overs that we have.

It was such fun creating this piece!

Neutering and vaccination save lives!

  • Oreo Bartholomeow Balestorm

    This looks pretty. I wonder if I should put in a bid so that Hazel will have her own blankie-ngiao and stop chasing me off mine… Hmm….

  • Oreo Bartholomeow Balestorm

    Hi Dr Chan, yes I do. Her name is Hazelnut Karameow Balestorm. She’s a Balestorm-ngiao. Just like me. You can see her on my FB page. She’s a nutter. But I think I love her-ngiao.

  • Wine Dogs TB EE TT and CC

    Thank you Oreo and Hazel for not outbidding us doggies…cos we r not that observant to get in last min bids, hehe! We finally get a colorful blankie that has ALL the colors so we don’t have keep waiting for a red blankie! Yippee!

    • chankahyein

      Oh? We have red blankies coming up too…ha ha.

      • Oreo Bartholomeow Balestorm

        Hi Wine Dogs, I showed Hazel a picture of the blankie and she didn’t want it-ngiao. She wants a purple or red blankie though so if Dr Chan puts up a red blankie, it seems we will have to bid against each other… 🙂

        • chankahyein

          Hi Oreo, Would you believe it – we have quite a few red ones AND one that is purple AND red – a fruity one with strawberries and apples. Wait for it!

          • Oreo Bartholomeow Balestorm

            Hi Dr Chan,

            A purple and red one with strawberries and apples? I think Hazel would love that-ngiao! She sometimes smell of strawberries, especially after she cuddles with mama after mama’s bath-ngiao. We will most definitely wait for that! Thanks for the prior notice, Dr Chan.

    Dear Oreo ♡

    I love all your photos and video in your FB. Your antics made me smile. Hazel is cute. She’s so active and sometimes too active for you… he he 🙂

  • Oreo Bartholomeow Balestorm

    Dear Auntie Jasmine, thanks for liking most of my pictures on FB. She is too active for me, in fact, Hazel’s the reason why I’m not asleep yet at this hour-ngiao. She’s on her zoomies mode and is zooming all over the room, and launching herself at me every now and then-ngiao! I’ve gotta stay awake to make sure she doesn’t hurt herself. The other night she jumped into our water bowl and got herself all wet. Mama had to cuddle her all night to keep her warm.
