Cats & Quilts - a match made in heaven... (except maybe those stubborn little clouds of fur that latch on to the fabric!)

Kitty Quote of the Day

I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul. - Jean Cocteau

Ric Rac Flowers For You!

I have to say I love Ric Rac & don't use it enough. Click on the Blog name below to link to a great tutorial on how to make a Ric Rac Dahlia to use as a brooch, curtain tie or embellishment. One or two or more would look great on the right bag. Looks nice & easy and there is no limit to what you could use as the centre of the flower. A nice fussy cut piece of fabric on a covered button with ric rac to match would come up a treat.

The tutorial is by Hannah on her blog Knick Knacks and Ric Rac. Check out her web site too for some cute original design screen printed clothing.

Happy stitching
