Paws


This is the Monthly Doll Quilt Swap piece that I sent off to Janet.  The theme for March was 'Animals' and it seemed we are both cat lovers.  These bow tie kitties are from an adaptation of a pattern found in the book "Christmas Cats & Dogs' by Janet Kime with Martingale co.


And the signature little dollie to go with the doll quilt.


My inspiration - Thing #1.......


and Thing #2...................

And we will be taking a real pause from the blog for a few days - I have lots to get finished up here while my helpers nap. **I will post the winner of the Hop give away Friday morning**
