This week’s set decoration idea comes from my sister (aka Inkblot’s Aunt, in comments). Get a box, she said, put a quilt in the box, and then put the cat in the box. Or, better yet, just wait for the cat to hop into the box on her own. After all, a cat in a box is a timeless theme of catblogging, no?

We did this outdoors because our recent cold snap turned into a warm spell this week, so Domino was already outside sunning herself when I hauled out my camera. Besides, the light is better. This week features a second iteration of the Yellow Brick Road quilt design, which you can compare to last week’s version here. It’s machine pieced and machine quilted.

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
