It's been a while since I posted up to Feline Friday with Sarah Did It. I had taken some photos of furry cuddles while working on my 'shirt' quilt for the For The Boys Hop. There is something about flannel shirts that hold a smell and feel of a person and I think my kitties just found this loveliness.
Yeah, I would no sooner chase one off, the other would settle in place. Moe loves everyone, but my Bella is very skittish (especially afraid of men) and my baby. BUT she loves my youngest son and I think she found him in this quilt.
Some of you asked to see what I bought on my recent trip to my LQS. A few of the FQs that went into the tote for Bonnie Hunter's new Mystery coming up. The others got put in their respective color totes for future use and I couldn't remember what was the new ones. I think I picked up 40 FQs that day.
This is folded in half so I could get a photo in a small space. This is 'Around Town' by Terri Degenkolb of Whimsicals for Red Rooster Fabrics. Quilt shop. boutique, flower shop, cafe, pet shop, ice cream and chocolate shops. And all the cutsies.
There are different coordinates with this line in various colorways, but these are the ones I got to use with the 'shops' fabric. LOVE IT!!
The smudge dot - cleared the bolt - great binding fabric in the future. And the blurry Tri-Rec. I had this set , but it is 'lost' so picked up another for Bonnie's mystery and some other projects have been using them - so a real need right now.
I started photo'ing some of the other purchases and then realized - they are for future blog give aways - so you will have to wait.
When I saw this over at Quilt Taffy when they had a charm give away - well, I just had to look it up and order me some yardage. I have some Kona White and Ash and fabric in my stash match some of those bow-ties - a project lined up for next year. Fun fabrics make for fun stitching.
OK I am waiting on three (yes, 3) more boxes of fabric orders. But these lovelies have come in the mail, too. I won the Schnibbles 'Good Fortune' from Sinta of Pink Pincushion, the cute kitty mug rug from Connie of Freemotion by the River, and when I saw the Celebration quilts over at Marcia's Crafty, Sewing, I just had to order the pattern.
Yes, I am stocking up and readying those fabric shelves, patterns pulled, books pulled - things are mapped out with a plan for the New Year. Hey, it's not that far away!
