And we're walking...

Not me, it was 97 degrees here today, it's suppose to be 100 tomorrow. What happened to Fall?

I finished another small quilt. I couldn't think of anything interesting to quilt into it, so I just used the walking foot and stitched in the ditch all the seams.

I finished piecing this top over a year ago. I'm determined to get more of my flimsies quilted. Two down, seven more to go (not including the two quilts I'm currently piecing).

Gonna Buy a Lotto Ticket

I won again! Kelly at I Have a Notion had a wonderful time at Checker Distribution's 62 Anniversary Open House and shared all kinds of notions and quilt designers on her blog.

I won a pattern by Far-Flung Quilts, and it is even signed by the designer Carolyn Griffin.

Thank you Kelly!

Friday Night Sew In...

...was a success! I quilted while listen to an audio book.

I finished quilting the scrappy half square flimsy I made a while back.

Siddi is feeling much better. She was very (not) helpful last night while I was working on this quilt. I also got the binding sewn on - I'll do the hand sewing later.
I know I've show the top and back before but I don't think I've shown a finished quilt in ages!

I'm Ready

Tomorrow night is Friday Night Sew In...I'm ready. I'm determined to finish quilting AND putting the binding on one of the quilts I pinned last week.

I bought these at the dollar store (my second favorite store).

They are perfect to store these...
I may need to get more.

Mean Mama, Lucky Mama

The lucky mama won Stitching Lines at Mary's blog Marin & Colusa. I think they are going to very helpful turning this pile of squares into half square triangles.

Thank you Mary!

Poor Siddi, she had a reaction to her shots. She ran a fever most of the day yesterday. To keep her from getting dehydrated, I kept forcing water down her throat. She thought I was a mean mama by the end of the day. She's doing much better today, still quiet and sleeping a lot, but she's drinking water on her own.

Not Happy Campers

She is hiding from me...

He peed on me...
He hissed at me...

This is empty...
We all went to the vet's today. Poor mama, literally and figuratively.

Prep Work

Getting ready to work on a project can take almost as much time as actually working on the project. Today I ironed the flannel for a quilt back...

pin basted one quilt...
pin basted a second quilt...

and cut borders for the yellow sashed rectangles.

Now I get a cat on the quilt...

dark gray cat on a mostly white quilt, not a good thing.
