The Kitty Quilt Grows

I’m having so much fun with Love Me, Love My Cat Quilt.  The embroidered blocks are in the hands of a great friend, Diana, who has taken over putting them together as a “real quilt” for me.KittyQuiltLayout We have selected 3 red and white prints to connect all the blocks and it is really going to be cute and cheerful.  Just what we kitty people need, more fur and fun!

Keep watching, the kitties will be ready to visit you soon.

Dissolving the Transfer-Eze

I finished the block I was stitching at the Del Mar show and had a great time watching the Transfer-Eze actually dissolve before my eyes.  The kitty block is perfect and ready to be added to the others for the new quilt.DissolivingTransfer-Eze

The 8 blocks are now stitched and waiting to be put together with some red and white pieced blocks now renamed “Cat’s Paw” in honor of our quilt!

Should be ready soon!  Keep watch on our blog and in our Newsletter.  Cats Rule!

More Kitty Stuff

My house has become the Kitty Feeding Station for the neighborhood.  A few years ago some not so great neighbors quit feeding their pair of cats who then left home KittyFeedingStationto find food.  Since then LOTS of litters of cats have been born and continue to roam around.   This cute Siamese is soon to be a mother – some place around the house.   My next step is to see what can happen if I catch her and take her to the ASPCA.  She doesn’t mind if I sit nearby and chat with her while she has a snack.  At least the kittens could have a chance to be adopted.

SiameseBreakfast

Another picture as we continue to have our breakfast conversation.  She doesn’t say much!  Our new quilt will honor all the Siamese, furry black, smooth black and very fluffy gray striped kitty who come by to eat.  Another darker colored Siamese has had her kittens under a bush in a neighbor’s yard 2 houses away.  She comes too to keep her strength up for the babies.

More kitty stories as they happen.  Take care of your feline friends!
