I have this entire week off from work. In fact, I have accrued so many vacation days that if I don't start using them I will not get more, so I am taking time off. I will go back on Monday. So you ask? (even if you didn't I am going to tell you) what do you do with all this time off and no sewing machine? Well, I have been cutting like a fiend! I bought this kit with Paisley Party fabric this week and now the quilt is all cut out. Aren't these fabrics pretty? Kind of reminds me of Fresh Squeezed.
This is the pattern. It is a fairly simple quilt but really nice when done up.
I have also cut out a baby quilt using my Posh charm squares to make a basket quilt for my SIL's upcoming baby girl. I will take photos soon so you can see that one too. I have a few more things to cut up too. When that sewing machine gets out I will be so busy! Oh, yeah, BTW, I have one more day to write on my 365 day challenge quilt blocks and that will be finished. I was telling DD2 about this feat of chronicling my life for a whole year on a quilt and she said to me, "You know that you need to make 2 more of those so we can each have a year of your life in a quilt, right?" Yeah, right, I told her that's what this blog is for!!
I think many of you know that I am owned by 5 cats and a dog. It should therefore be no surprise that there is always pet fur on my quilts. I try really, really hard to keep it to a minimum but the cat inspectors believe, quite strongly I might add, that you are not truly finished with a quilt unless there is cat fur quilted into the quilt. Here is Hallie putting her fur of approval on the *BLACK* back of Amy's quilt...Thanks, Hal! Don't you just love my $1 Target special magnifying glasses?? Quite fashionable, or so Hal tells me.
I hope you all are planning a safe but fun New Year's eve celebration. DD2 and I went out shopping today for something flashy for her to wear to her party tomorrow night. One last thing, DD2's BF is coming over tomorrow and I will finally get to give him his MSU quilt. I sure hope he likes it!
