At 9:30 last night I decided it was the perfect time to sew a new little quilt for the cats. Why I always decide to start projects when it's really far too late in the evening to do so is beyond me. But the result is a pretty darn cute cat quilt.
If you remember, I made a tree skirt during the holidays? And the cats loved it? Well, I haven't had the heart to take it away from them, so the tree skirt has been on the floor in my living room for the entire month. Very attractive, eh?
Now, don't get me wrong, I love those little Santa Donkeys, but I think it's time for them to go into storage so they can surprise me with their cuteness next year when I'm unpacking my holiday decorations.
So, back to last night. It took me 4 hours, but I sewed up this sweet little quilt for the kitties. I'm working on a duvet cover for my bed so I just used some of the left over squares. I finally mastered getting the walking foot on my machine and was able to quilt something for the first time with lines that didn't get all shifted around and weird on the back side of the quilt. Yeah me!

Awoke this am (granted a tad late...) all filled with crafty energy so made a few little valentine's cards (family stop reading here!). :) I cut a few hearts out using my pinking shears, free motion stitched them to blank cards and hand stamped the word LOVE on them. Super fast and fun. (But apparently must go back and clip threads!) A really nice way to start off what I'm sure is going to be a lovely day.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
p.s. Color dilemma for the Nesting Chairs solved and I should have the fabric listed in the store within a week or so. I can't thank you guys enough for all the feedback and ideas. It was lots of fun to hear your thoughts and they were really a great help.
