Whooping with Kitties




In moving things around with the de-winterizing - I decided to see what was in those huge grey tubs to try and combine two into one.  I found a grocery bag of scraps that someone must have gifted me - I don't reconize any of these as mine.  Rather than stash that bag away again - I played.  Yeah, I finally felt safe with a rotary cutter in my hand.


Some tiny Bow Ties and Churn Dash blocks to add to my collection.



Then I put all those geese  into their 'by 4' setting to make some progress with this project.


Then I pulled my Orange FQ tote to make up the spinners for RSC16.


Then added them to the column quilt in progress.

Where's the kitties?


Bella is still holding a grudge since the trip to the Vet.  Some fresh cat nip in a little scrap batting 'pillow' toy.  She makes short work of ripping a hole in it and spreading it all over.


This is why they get the nip in the kitchen - easier to sweep up the floor. Yes, that is a bit of a blood spot on the floor as 'Miss Thing' tagged me with her claws to grab that nip bag.


Once Bella is done, Moe moves in.  As you can see, he licks the loose stuff off the floor (he doesn't like the toy bag).

  
And then it's a good roll, and roll, and roll, and roll..................  He actually sweeps most of it up - all stuck to his fur.  Then he goes outside to roll around on the sidewalk or lawn some more (cleans his furs off and marks his territory).  That's when I can get the Swiffer Wet Jet out and clean up the floor.  Hey - it kept them busy and happy while I got to sew.

We are to have a lot of rain today - good sewing weather, but the weekend will be glorious.  Maybe a bit of ME time with a trip out and about needs to be planned.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. Wow! Love those spinners. Column quilt is coming along nicely.
    The pictures of your fur babies with their catnip fix are funny. Wonder what it is about catnip that seems to put kittens in a happy stupor.

  3. It takes much skill to make churn dash blocks that small, and I love your spinners. I'm not normally a fan of orange tones but they tone so well with the other colours, very nice.

  4. I like your little churn dash blocks. I have trouble making large church dash blocks and your little ones are perfect. Your row blocks are looking great. Enjoy your ME time.

  7. Love all your blocks - especially those spinners. Your column quilt looks beautiful.
    My old cat Gump used to roll in the catnip, then spend the rest of the day licking it out of his fur. And drooling...

  8. That sounds like fun, finding a bag of unknown scraps, it's like a present, LOL. You bribe your babies just like I do to get a bit of unmolested time.

  10. I think Bella and Zorro might get along - they both like to open up the catnip toy! Love those spinners. I never got started on the scrappy challenge this year. I just recently found a block I think I'll make and since it's large I'll just need one in each color. Maybe I'll start when summer hours kick in...
