Fox News reported the first Monday back to work after New Years is the hardest and most depressing day.When thinking about "Monday Blues", I remembered the January Blues kitty block swap. Time to get these cuties out of their baggie and into a real finished quilt.
This swap was with the About.com Quilting group. A huge number of ladies joined that swap so we all ended up with a great assortment of block fabrics .
Yesterday I sewed a few more blocks to make a good throw sized top. It was actually fun to sew these kitty blocks, I was weary of them after so many different kitty theme swaps. LOL
Best way to sew these blocks is to line them all even at their top and then cut even along the bottom of each row. Hopefully each row turns out to be even in width. But, that usually is not the case with blocks sewn by so many different people. You just have to fiddle with seam sizes .Kitty pattern *HERE*
Pibbs and Chelsea enjoying remnants of lasagna. He sure doesn't mind horning in. That cat will eat anything the poodles eat.
Look at the fat cat now. We call him Pull-tab Pibbs. His front teeth are so worn down that when he relaxes, his tongue slips out.
Today Cyber Quilters (YahooGroup) shared a link to Nancy Mahoney Designs and I'll share it HERE (click on "free patterns"). My favorite is the Fiesta pattern. The fabrics are pretty and the quilt looks relatively easy.
This week is poodle grooming week, later (if it works out) I'll share pics of fresh, clean and stylish poodle-kids (ha, ha, who me?). Temps are warm enough for bathing now, so far the cold front has not dropped down to our area.
Feeling lucky about that !
