|"Knitty Kitty" by Greta Lynn for Benartex|
These are going to grow up into a cat mat for Miss Bella, who has sat on the grey cat fabric every day since it came home with me after the Port Charlotte Quilt Show on February 20. I forgot her very own faux sheepskin cat cushion/pouffé in Kingsville, bad cat mama I am. I saw the grey cat fabric and thought bingo, there she is. The grey and white on the back of my sewing chair was another piece I got because it is an interesting grey. That is when the shop owner told me it was part of the Knitty Kitty line. And she pulled out the red. And I got 1/4 yard. You know. Get back in Miss Bella's good graces by making her a patchwork mat rather than just a hunk of fabric mat.
|She isn't glaring; it's the sun in her eyes, I'm sure of it|
Not only will Bella get some polyester batting inside her mat, she will also get these scraps of fabric and batting stuffed in. At the November retreat a girl from Michigan was saving all our scraps for this very purpose, and it hit me last week that I could add my current fabric bits into Bella's pouffé to make it a little more poofy for her tushy. ;-)
I also hope to get my second nephew, Aidan's, flimsy sewn together. It's all cut out now, ready to go. Triangle Transparency. But that is just a sidenote mainly for me. My OMG goal is the cat mats.
If you haven't heard, Julie at Pink Doxies has started up a new linky party. Just as in yoga, where I sometimes face my fears, she is encouraging us to face our fears and tackle something that may intimidate us, or something new we'd like to try but have perhaps put off, or a new technique, or something way out of our comfort zone, or something we find rather challenging, or....you get the picture?
I've had this collection of fabric and the Texture Magic for almost 2 years. The triptych is going to hang on a rather large wall space in our home in Kingsville. I keep putting it off, even though that blank wall stares/glares at me on a daily basis. MacGyver has done his part and built the most beautiful skinny computer table that goes there. Now I must open this package, read the instructions, and DO IT! It will be my goal for the month of March with Julie's #Brave Quilter
Linking up with OMG at Red Letter Quilts and with #Brave Quilter at Pink Doxies.
