You may remember that I forgot Miss Bella's cat "pouffé" at home in Kingsville. You may recall that I found some perfect cat fabric, "Knitty Kitty" at the Port Charlotte Quilt Show. Bella put her fuzzy butt stamp of approval on it.
I finished her pouffé a few days ago.
|I think she approves!|
Here's the back:
|I quilted it with Connecting Threads' cotton. Serious love for this thread you guys!|
|Bella's pouffé with the two cat mats I made to donate|
These two cat mats for the shelter have terry cloth that I bought to make a burp cloth for a friend's grand-baby as the backings. I got a great deal on a remnant at JoAnn's, and there was enough to make both mat bottoms and the burp cloth. It worked out really well as mat bottoms.
I just did a simple walking foot grid to hold the layers together and still keep the mats cushy for the tushies. ;-) All three have polyester batting in them.
|Yay, the low-growing bougainvillea is blooming!|
Happy happy mail arrived March 10!
|Oh the noses were just quivering!|
|Patriotic bandana for Miss Bella the Diva, "This is not my good side!"|
|This cat should be in Hollywood. Looks, personality, and POSES no problem. Loves having her photo taken.|
Naala wasn't so happy with her bandana being set on her shoulders...
|I think it was the "Stay!" sternly said to her that made her not so happy.|
Rocco does not like his picture taken, but he, like Naala, obliged by being still for a moment so you can see his adorable Spring Training-themed tie.
Naala's bandana and Rocco's tie both have loops to slide over a collar, but unfortunately, we don't have the buckle-up collars, just the continuous loop ones, so once I do get a buckle-up collar, I can put these accessories on them and take better photos.
I got some loot too!
|I am OVER THE MOON in love with the cat and dogs doing yoga fabric!|
