My projects

The ordination stole is now longer than the cat stand...which has turned into a Baby K jungle gym. We dragged it to the center of the living room, up against the sofa to minimize the chances that she will fall off onto the tile floor. That fabric challenge I talked about? Well, I still won't meet the show deadline, but I continued piecing. I used Ricky Tims' "Caveman Quilting" techniques to do the freehand curves. I have fabric for a border, which will be wavy also. The BIG project this week was finishing a customer quilt. It had lots of green fabric, gorgeous batiks. I did some pseudo-McTavishing in the black background, which made my eyes water - hard to see black thread on black fabric and I was doing small motifs!
Here is the main block design...very simple but striking with her wonderful colors. I was crazy enough to start a new sock project...another pair of Jaywalkers in STR January One. Socks That Rock yarn is luscious!!! This is my "March Madness" project...which means it's madness to think I'll finish in 3 weeks, LOL.

& how does your kitty feel about have the cat toy usurped by the toddler? (I still have a big box in my living room, because Mr. Cat (RB) loves to "hide" in it... (The actualy cat hidey-hole, not so much.)
