Holey granola bars and Dunkin Donuts...It's Friday again! Wow! This week went fast! I think I'm caught up enough to work on some sewing today. Please?
My Friday Finish is "Snow Cat" for my STUD swap bud-Scootin' Annie. Forget when I started it...LOL
But, here it is finished. Well, almost. I do need to wash it. I'm not sure how...but some caramel dipping sauce got on the kitty's tummy. Probably from my knuckle. LOL That's what you get for trying to put on the binding while having a fall, appley treat!
Miss Kitty (see her collar is pink!) is 9x10 3/4". The picture doesn't show it well, but the border is chock full of browns, greens and turquoise in the shape of what I'm deciding to call snowflakes. This is a December swap, but under the "Anything Goes" category.
I'm so diggin' the binding! It has the exact same colors in a stripey stripe...but not from the same designer! How cool is that?
I got out my DMC floss and stitched eyes, mouth, whiskers and tail...the nose was so much fun to draw on and then stitch into being! Too cute of a pattern I found online Googling paper-foundation-piecing-patterns-FREE.
I used my hex paper templates to fussy cut three, white snowflakes. I will put the date on the smaller one and a "To" and "From" on the larger ones (in the circle part of the snowflakes).
Your typical me swirling stippling.
I really hope she likes it...'cause if she don't, I may ask for this one back! LOL
Today is the day I'm making copies for another paper pieced mini quilt. I've met a super sweet gal over on flickr named Ansje. We started emailing each other over our quilts and projects and decided to do a non-organized swap on our own for November. We found we had done a lot of the same projects and liked a lot of the same patterns and colors.
You can see her work and world here
Pop on over to amylouwho's blog by clicking on the Sew and Tell Friday button. I'm headed there right now to look at how motivated we all were this week and what beautiful things we accomplished!
Have a happy day!
