What I'm Working On

I have been so busy with the "have to" quilting projects, 
I've almost forgotten what it feels like to work on the "want to" projects.  
I have one more have to and that is to quilt up Fox Face. 
 I really need to get this done so I can gift that quilt to the baby that has already been born!  
Maybe on Saturday.


I finished my Bee blocks for May and put them into the mail this morning.



I have been following along with the Splendid Sampler.  
Are you participating?  
There was a pretty complex embroidery pattern that I loved 
but knew I would not take the time to make.  
So I decided to add these adorable cats instead.  T
hey are a free download from Jodi Ric Rac's blog, resized to fit in about 4".  I
 embroidered them using Aurifloss.  
The color of the floss is so much better in the second photo.  
DMC does NOT have this amazing color.  
In fact, I am meeting my friend, Windy and we will be going to Pink Castle Fabrics today 
and I should pick up some more!



I have also been working on my Busy City quilt which I will talk about tomorrow.

What are you working on?  I am linking up to Let's Bee Social  over at Sew Fresh Quilts.

Cute kitties! I made a table mat using hex shapes. The pattern is Merry-go-Round and it's 15" across (hexagonal shape). Just finishing the binding now - can you believe it, a project started and finished in less than 1 week!!

Love you finishes. Followed your link to Jodi's blog- what a hoot!! She must be a great person-sense of humor and loves cats too. Thanks for the link. Have some fun sewing projects. I have o bunch of to finish with deadlines but always go off on a "want to". Fell into one last night and now am doing the "must do". Love your blog.
