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

Happy Scrappy!

There seems to be plenty happening here this month amongst lots of work hours but not much to show for it, doing some secret sewing, knitting a few rows of Christmas balls...... more about that in my 1 Christmas Item A Month post. I made 1 snuggly-bug block with a cute little unicorn,

and a pair of cute little bowls so I could play Christmas Swap angel to my good friend Shez.

I love that fabric I used on the outside of the bowls & the Paris Holiday used as wrapping is pretty cute too.

It's been hot here again so there have been a few naps & lots of yawns....

The cherry tomatoes are prolific....

And little Brun has done his best to try & kick start the broken laptop (when I just read this through I had typed 'lick' start - bet that wouldn't have worked either!). Even he couldn't work any magic so it is holidaying in the laptop workshop.

But most of all I want you all to....

If you haven't entered my giveaway, please leave a comment on the previous post here. Thanks to those who have & the new followers, look forward to the draw next Sunday. I have been playing with the auto draw programs but wonder if maybe I should go the old fashioned way & let the boys help? It only seems right.

Happy stitching

  7. You have been very busy and yes I think that you should let the boys help draw the winner. You could be in all sorts of trouble if you don't. hugs

  8. Lovely snuggly, lovely bowls, how lovely of you to be an Angel :) Wish my tomato plant was as productive, poor thing is a bit shrivelled :) Looking forward to seeing the boys pick, you know you won't be able to not, lol

  9. Check out those teeth lol. They are great pressies and I love the unicorn block you have made too. Purple must be the colour of the moment as my youngest is madly collecting purples to make a suffolk puff quilt! Guess I will be very busy making puffs lol

  10. I love the fabric on the fabric bowls. How very french! I don't think I've ever seen a rosary on fabric like that before, which is odd when you think about it, because once upon a time practically the whole country was made up of practicing Catholics. I like it! Love everything else too, especially those two sleepy kitties. :)

  11. Hi Tracee,
    It's all happening around your place girl. Love the little bowls, they're very cute. Love the fangs on your furry friend!! lol.
    Cheers, Anita.

  12. Love the little bowls you made, gorgeous photos of the boys too! Hugs Wendy
