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

Dress Up Your Roll Competition

I figure if I am going to be up in the middle of the night stressing about little Brun's surgery tomorrow I might as well be catching up on some blogging.

Here is a new challenge that Jane from Want it, Need it, Quilt is running. If you are looking for something different from the usual mug rug, table runner, quilt block challenges then check this out. The mission, should you accept it, is to make a cover for the humble loo roll. It can be pretty, comic, embellished - anything you want. Jane has a tutorial on her blog today too to give you ideas.

Here's a link from earlier on Jane's blog to go to the rules, important dates (we have until 1st March to complete ) & prizes. Yes, a $100 voucher could be yours as well the infamy of being the 2012 Loo Roll Dress Designer of the Year.

Blog about it & you can win packs of Aurifil thread too. So when next you are in the loo, contemplate the fate of that lonely, naked loo roll & how you can pretty it up!

Happy stitching
