This is one special kitty.
She showed up at our front door several weeks ago, meowing
loudly while staring up at us through the door. How can you
not do something?
My daughter decided to take care of her and began feeding
her. Eventually, she moved into our sunroom and then,
after several days of feeding her, her belly became quite
round and plump. Yes, she was pregnant! What to do?
We already have one cranky cat who did not like this
new addition to the family and we were dog sitting too.
We decided to contact a local animal rescue charity called
Street Cats Rescue Mission. A lady and her husband showed
up that evening, confirmed our suspicions and assured us that
she would find her an adoptive home asap. She did and within
3 days, our very special kitty had seen a vet and was being loved
by another caring family. I am very thankful for organizations
On that note, I also made a kitty lap quilt for an upcoming
fundraiser at my church. The pattern was free over at
Shwin & Shwin. You have to go onto their Craftsy account
to download the pattern pieces though.
It went together really quickly and I quilted it really
simply as well.
How can you not love the glasses?
I quilted straight horizontal lines on the white background
and in the cat’s pink body, I stitched a diagonal line in matching
For the backing, I used some yellow fabric. It is a little hard
to see the stitching but it is there.
I also managed to quilt Barb’s quilt last week. It is a very
colorful Batik quilt.
I love Batik fabrics and the color is always eye catching.
Barb wanted a pantograph so she chose “Flirtatous.”
It is a fun design and it adds some nice swirls to the square
piecing of the top.
A light purple polyester thread was used on the top and a light
polyester grey thread for the backing.
The backing fabric was really soft so it should be nice
and cuddly to use.
Again, the stitching shows up nicely on the back.
I think that spring has finally sprung here but now there is the
urge to clean everything is sight. Blah!! I would rather be
Have a great week!
