Came and Went

Thanksgiving came and went. We only had four people, the smallest amount we have ever had. I had a bad cold courtesy of granddaughter number 2. My poor cat was found upstairs in my loft and had to be buried before dinner. He had been sick, and I guess he wanted to be remembered in a big way. He always was right between my sewing machine chair and the ironing board, so I would have to step over him constantly, and that's where he was that morning.

Moving on to Christmas!  This is an old quilt which was a one yard challenge. I had one yard of the red, and one of the green, lots of muslin, and little snips of a red print. I love red and white quilts and I have a couple more to show you this month.  

And...... I finished my one and only present I am making.  Tiffany, if you read this, don't tell your sister! It's for granddaughter number 3 because no one (me included) made her a baby quilt. This will be just in time for her to use in her crib this winter and a good size for a toddler bed.  I finished it yesterday and today I will wash it and soften it up.  I enlarged a font on the computer, printed it out, reversed it onto fusible web and then machine stitched it in place. What do you think?


  1. Oh, sorry about your kitty. They each have their own personality, that's for sure.

    I love the two quilts you've pictured here!

  2. I like Calia's name on the quilt. Now how about finishing up Lorelai's quilt for me? Just far...I might get desperate next year and change my mind though.

  3. Hi
    So sorry to hear about your cat. I am a cat lover too. I also like red and white quilts, so can't wait to see the others you plan to show us. Thanks for leaving a comment today.

  4. I'm sorry to read about your quilting companion! Sounded like a great kitty :)
