Kitten mini quilt

The second swap I joined on instagram I HAD to because it was about CATS! And if you couldn't tell I love kitties!

This was the collage I made. I love that little kitty at the piano, I think him at a sewing machine would be adorable!!  I probably could have found about twenty other pictures I liked (and I made a pinterest board, called Cat blocks) but I limited my collage to these that I thought were most adorable!

Here is a sneak peek at what my partner is getting!

her first quilt

I mentioned I had a foster daughter, well she wanted to get in on this quilting nonsense ;)

 She picked out the fabrics, and the design.  I helped her cut the squares.

She wanted to add a border.  I really like the color she chose.

She made it for some friends of ours that are fostering a newborn.

Busy bee. . .

I have not been around, and not been able to do a lot of sewing, I have done a little, but nothing is finished that I could share.

The main reason I haven't been able to finish anything is because we recently got a foster daughter.  Since she is here I cannot just go "hide" in my sewing room, I need to be present.

So needless to say sewing time has been cut down.  I have a few minis I know what I am going to do, but just haven't started them.  I joined about three different swaps on instagram!
