Saturday


Woke up extra early this morning, so was able to finish the second of two shop samples done for the LQS. I get to spend one more carefree (albeit very busy) day working there today, too, before the Grim Reality of the Duty Job rears its (no kidding) hideous head on Monday. I do not know how I will force myself to go down there. But for today, quilting! This is the second sample, nine pumpkins snowball-block style, set three by three. Aren't the colors heavenly. A variety of jack o'lantern features will go on their faces for the shop kit, but I drew an applique design using the same 9 (pulled from my stash) as a background that begins with my black cat Jack (from stash...hey, it's almost all stash so far) and that has pumpkin vines, blossoms, and one pumpkin as a little pumpkin fairy house. That the cat is checking out. And there will be a little pumpkin fairy. I'm hoping to get my own top done tomorrow and some more of the appliques cut out.

This is very cute. Will this be a kit at your store? If so, do they have a website?

Ooooo I love the colors! And it's quite clever to use the snowballs as pumpkins. They look like it, but I never would have thought of it. The cat is great, too -- really seems to be paused to investigate.

That curious kitty is just darling - can't wait to see when it's all done.
