Sewing Up a Storm !!!

Hi all...  cool temps have returned, schools have reopened, and I have had the opportunity to spend several weekends sewing to my heart's content !!!

Miss Bit has decided that the ironing board makes a great kitty bed - - interferes with my productivity, but aww isn't she cute there...  (ooh my ironing board is grungy)
 I have been working on two quilts for Christmas presents....  first is this little 'kitty' quilt.  The center blocks were leftover from another quilts, so I just made the ladder blocks to go with it - I'll show you more when it is finished...
 Second is a little kit from Connecting Threads... This was on a 40% sale, so who could pass that up?  Just the fabric was a deal - but I decided to actually make the quilt, and it's really cute...  many triangles, but that's ok sometime....  I should be able to get this done by the holidays.....
 
I've also been quilting up some charity quilts, including this one made from crumb blocks.  I was gifted a giant stack of crumb blocks, which I worried about ever using.  So I put a triangle on each side, making a square in a square, and took them to a retreat - and said a little prayer that people would sew them up - AND THEY DID !!!!  I think I will try that technique again in the future when I get a big pile of crumb blocks !!!
 
Well, that's my quilty action...  I am sitting here today looking at my "big" projects - a linen piece, a couple of detailed quilts - and somehow I am just not in the mood................ oh well, another day I WILL be in the mood...  won't I ????

Happy Sunday everyone - hope you are ready for another busy week !!!

My Little Calendar Centerfold

Hello  readers -

My kitty Mystic is going to be a CENTERFOLD !!!!

We entered his photo in a kitty photo contest sponsored by the Maine Cool Adoption agency in Oakland, CA.  And he got named KITTY SEPTEMBER !!!

This is the photo that will be in the calendar.  He loves to climb - and a ladder is just his most favorite favorite thing !


I must admit that he DOES take a fetching photo:

MYSTIC GETTING AN EDUCATION:

 Mr. Bedroom EYES
 SPHINX ON SCRAPS


YEP - that's my little furry boy - 

can't wait for the calendar to be published...

and yes, we have ordered one for all the uncles and aunts and sisters and brothers...  this calendar, after all, is a FUND-RAISER for Maine Coon adoptions !

and, yes, this very gorgeous kitty was once a little homeless kitten - he came from a family who was evicted from their home, so all the pets had to be adopted out. 

What fun these two kitties bring us every day !!!! (yes Miss Bit is a little jealous - - we will have to do something special for her very soon)
