UFOsI didn't think I'd be able to link up with Tish's party this week, because I didn't think I was working on any UFOs, and then I realized one of my UFOs was not on the list from this post. (I've gone back and added it, not to worry.) My cat mats. Each year I make two, giving them to the Englewood FL Humane Society where we get our dogs' heartworm tests. I always intend to make two more at home for the Windsor Humane Society or for a cat rescue I've heard of right near me in Leamington. I haven't. So this time it is my OMG as you read on my last post. I did a quick look and had a quick think and easily found the four possibilities I showed you in the OMG post. Because the paler blues are the RSC2018 colour of the month, I decided my first cat mat would be in those colours. I made it like the second one for which I never did write a tutorial, so watch this space, as they say, because I'm taking photos along the way and I'll show you how I did it, pretty easy-peasy. These mats are about the size of a placemat, so you can always use it for those too. 😉
|A little progress; man I do love these blues! That's the last of the arrows print; I feel glad and sad, do you know what I mean?!|
Any progress is good progress, right? The Splash of Colour was also on the UFO list, the "B" (Blocks) list, and is due shortly to link up for prizes. I missed the deadline and link-up for the flimsy, so I'll be damned if I miss the final link-up. I've decided to call this "Float", and it is half way done quilting. I'm doing an all-over hook & swirl design of Angela's.
It's back!Speaking of fun linky parties, which provide another opportunity to meet other quilty peeps, several of us have missed Throwback Thursdays which were held with Jen at A Quarter Inch From the Edge. Well, I emailed Jen last week and offered to babysit this linky for her while she is buried in full-time teaching and raising two littles (been there, done that, no time to sew except for school breaks). She assured me she is still getting in some sewing and quilting time, but blogging ain't gonna happen.
So, the first Thursday of the month Throwback Thursday is going to be held here until further notice. What is Throwback Thursday for those of you who may not know? It is a chance to pull out and photograph those older quilts, probably pre-blogging, and tell us their story. Every quilt has a story (isn't there a song about that... ah Rod, you know that's what you meant).
Since we missed the first Thursday of January, the party is going to happen this coming Thursday, January 11. I will be telling you about the quilt below that always sits on my bed for the month of December and into the beginning of January. Sneak peek:
I'm making a page for Throwback Thursday, so you can find my previous posts; it's also a way for me to remember which oldies have been documented.😃 I have also put a little description there for those who might happen to be randomly cruising around my blog...
