At some point a witty saying will materialize here. Right here. Watch for it.

Cat Bullet

So… half the year happened…

Filed under: It's a Cat's Life — Cat @ 4:07 pm

My last post was at the end of January. This post is at the middle of July. Time really flies…

Things… have been happening and not happening.

Florinda has blossomed, but no pictures right now.  She is in seclusion until she is completely done.   I think that everyone will be wowed by her presence…

Other things in random order:

I made a mini quilt.  3.5″ square, foundation paper pieced.  Dime provided for scale…   I needed a quick gift for an event and this is what came to mind.  It was difficult to part with, frankly, but I can and will make other ones.  I LIKE mini quilting!!

I pulled out my Jaqueline de Jonge “Enchanted Stars” project and worked on it at a quilting retreat in March (and after).  Progress is being made…

Didn’t finish it before I went to another workshop with Jaqueline down in Houston at the end of May…

My outer points are nearly perfect, but I’m still having problems with the innermost junction.

This was my progress at the end of the three days:

Am not sure why that picture insists on being sideways…

Speaking of May, it snowed on the 21st.    There ought to be a law against this…

I made a bag with an actual zipper!!  And unicorn seahorses.  Because why have seahorses when you could have UNICORN seahorses.  There were also humpback whales and manta rays, but they were on the back…

It has been a long time since I’ve installed a zipper.  It went better than I thought it would, but I had several helpful people around in the class to help me along the way.

 

My sister in law was visiting last week (*waves at Ginger*), and we were really productive.  I made a quilt top and back for a friend of mine (will be dropped off at the quilter tomorrow), and finished some potholders that had been lurking for a while now, and finished a class project (double wedding ring table topper) from last November.   Well, mostly finished.   I decided that I wanted to quilt it by hand, so that is in the “Mostly done” pile.  Along with two quilts that Ginger helped me machine stitch the bindings on.  I still need to wrap them to the back and hand stitch them down, but they are also in the “Mostly done” pile.  Yay!!!  I like it when I have a “Mostly Done” pile.  The only thing better than that is a “Done” pile.

I’ve been working hard at cleaning and decluttering the house, in preparation for new flooring installation on the main floor (and refinishing of kitchen cabinets).  Do you ever get the feeling that we have too much stuff???  I’ve also been working hard on cleaning/organizing of the quilting room.  That is a neverending task…

So, I’ll try to be better about posting.  My problem is that I take pictures and forget to send them to my computer so that I can upload them for the blog…

  1. I’m so glad I was able to help with some of your projects this time around instead of just focusing all on my own stuff!

  2. And don’t forget you also finished the two potholders while I was there!
