Bird, Bird, Bird is the Word from Cat Patches

It was a very nice day yesterday. It was nice weather-wise, and it was nice sewing-wise. Oh yes, and dessert...don't forget dessert! I'll tell you about that in a minute. First...the sewing.

Most of the day was spent working on the background. I worked on it one 6 x 6 grid section at a time, interspersing housekeeping chores between each one. To start, I was finishing off the two sections to the right of the bird. This is the fifth section.


Then I went to work on the sixth and final section for the top row ...

Under Construction from ... Cat Patches

As expected, I finished up the last block for the Home and Heart quilt. I keep calling it Heart and Home, but it is actually the other way round. This is Robin Kingsley's design from Birdbrain Designs.


Here are all the blocks for this quilt.


You might remember when I made another of her designs. This is "Love Me, Love My Cat."


It was entered in a special exhibit at the Road to California quilt show several years back. The exhibit was all redwork designs from Birdbrain Designs. This quilt was a winner, and I won a $50 gift ...

OMG: A Flimsy from ... Cat Patches

There was plenty to do yesterday with Mike home from work, but there was also plenty of time for sewing. First on my list of priorities was to finish up the Bag Ladies flimsy, and...Ta-Da!


The old gals turned out okay. This is my OMG for October, and don't you think I'm feeling pret-ty smug at having it finished before the goal-setting linky has even closed.


Of course, I'll be linking up at the end of the month.

After that, we had wine shipments to pick up from two wineries. It was a dreary, rainy day ...

Scrappy and Happy from ... Cat Patches

Since I knew I was going to spend most of the day running around yesterday, I spent longer than usual on my morning embroidery. Besides...I was trying to finish an audio book, and so I listened until the end. Now I've nearly filled the first hoop for the last of the Heart & Home blocks.


This morning I'll finish the rest of it and then move my hoop to the next section. I can't wait to finish this because then I'll be ready to start something new. Isn't a new project the best thing ever ...

Fastest Needle in the West from Cat Patches

We had a wonderful week at Ft. Stevens State Park in Warranton, Oregon last week. There was a weak cell signal, and so no blogging for me. The signal was strong enough to tease, however. Occasionally, we could pick up our email, and I'd see tantalizing headlines, but no way to click on the link and read the story. Like this one: Chevy Chase: He's 74, sober, but no one will work with him. Really? Is that guy still alive? And sober? I didn't even know he wasn't sober...ever...and he wants to work? Geez ...
