Pink Fish

Pink Fish. An excellent start to a quilt for a cat...or better yet a kitten. If you would like to get deeper into the pink, please skip over to the Rainbow Scrappy Challenge.

 And just in case you would like to see too much cute and naughty curled up in one.

And yeah, I might have to get a larger cutting table.

Tiny Friday

I'm slowly getting back into the groove of sewing again.  This bear paw is 4.5 inches finished and is part of Angela's Tiny Tuesday project over at SoScrappy.

I would like to say I have gotten my ducks in a row, but really I think it is only to escape all of the zucchini that has taken over the kitchen. Oh, and the lettuce, cucumbers and broccoli. And oddly, all of my neighbors have gone into hiding.

And here are all the chameleon guts that need to be cut into functioning chameleon parts. Meanwhile, Buddy is continuing to use this area as his playground.

And speaking of Buddy...he has officially become a cat. But not a lap sitting cat... He likes to be held up on my shoulder so I can't do anything else. He is going to have me registered as his support animal. He takes the idea of support literally. Buddy has also decided he likes racing through cat tunnels...even when there is a Molly Kitten sitting in it.

Molly is moving from Kitten status to Distraught Teen. She is overwhelmed by my idiocy. She spends most of the day (and night) trying to talk me into opening the front door so she can go outside. She can not figure out whether my not doing so is a sign of incompetence or part of a larger conspiracy.

Meanwhile, I am going to continue to focus on the chameleons despite the enticing eye candy over at Wanda's Exuberant Color.  Wanda is working on a fantastic version of a postage stamp quilt combining prints and solids, inspired by an equally wonderful version at the Klein Meisje Quilts blog.

Patchwork Progress

Hey Buddy--

Get those cat pictures off of every computer and device. I can't believe that Senator Purrkley would send out twitter ads for shelter cats. Our staff has a very weak will.

Also, make sure to post some fabric-related nonsense for the quilters.

And please double check that you don't mix up these instructions and post pictures of stupid cats and delete everything quilt-related.

Chameleons 3.0

Here are the new versions of the chameleons. In this version they have something to stand on. Also, they are quite a bit smaller...the limb they are standing on is a one inch strip (half inch finished).

But I found a problem with my pattern. First, I make a cartoon on graph paper, and then I break down the piecing. During that translation I made a mistake so the chameleons definitely have problems with their digestion. Also, I think I will add some flip triangles to the front leg to round it off a bit.

And in case you are missing Molly... She is quite disappointed with me because I keep going outside. She realizes that there is more territory that she is missing out on and it happens to be a territory loaded with birds and bugs. I remind her it is also a territory full of cars and dogs and howling monkeys.

Right now I am waiting patiently for the first squash of the season. And yes, shortly I will be buried in it.

And this will be my second cucumber. It is a bit strange growing plants without sharing them with deer, raccoons, skunks, rabbits and voles. Yes, a bit lonely.

Pink Tiny Tuesday

Here's a tiny bit of sewing in honor of Tiny Tuesday, sponsored by Angela at SoScrappy. This month is pink and this week the design is presented by Libby at Life on the Hill.

There were too many choices for this week so I decided to make two first I was thinking baby pink bunnies...but I can never say no to fuchsia.
