Had a few days in bed with a really nasty cold week before last. My cats are always very pleased to keep me company in these situations, provided there's no coughing. Coughing is an offence to them - they take it as a personal insult.
Made a few sketches of them which was most enjoyable. They move more than you'd think. Also, they're both tortoiseshell so quite difficult to get the shading right. Tabby cats are particularly good to draw as they have their own contour lines. Most helpful of them. I really must put the knitting down and get back to some drawing / printmaking.
