Today's Activities

It's often difficult to gauge how much to do or not to do when you are feeling well. 
I got up this morning and decided that I would try some sewing at my machine.
I had a chenille blanket all basted and ready to stitch so thought that would be a good choice to begin. 
No standing to press anything. 
So I sat down and sewed for 2 hours and made all the channels.

Another Chenille

I got some of the cutting done too.
That takes so long but I finally got that finished too.

Beginning of a chenille

Then I thought about binding it. 
The fabric I wanted to use was in the basement and I was not allowed to climb those again today so I had to see what I could find in my sewing room that would work.
I came across some hot pink Free Spirit solid that was perfect!!
So soft! 
It would be perfect for a baby blanket.
I made the binding and attached it to the chenille.

Chenille for Kathy's baby

DH decided that we should take a quick trip to the local market.
We ran into my daughter's old swim coach and his family.
It was very mice to catch up. 
We kept up our shopping and about 20 minutes into the trip I was getting very light headed. 
So we checked out and came home. 
This is what greeted me as I entered the house.


I love my cats!
Have a wonderful night!!

A quilt's not a quilt until it's cat approved.

I need to make a few baby quilts to have on hand. The chenille would be a good one, quick and easy. Your cat obviously approves of this quilt.
