Weekend Stuff

There hasn't been a lot of time for playing lately, and I'm beginning to get cranky.  Sometimes new fabric is just the thing to make me a nice person again. 


I've been gathering some of my 2 1/2" strips for a new project.  I hope it turns out close to the way I pictured it in my head.  If so, I'll be doing a tutorial here.  These are some of the fabrics I'm thinking of using.


This little guy was in the kitty hospital last week.  We brought him home yesterday afternoon, but ended up taking him to the emergency clinic late last night.  Hopefully he'll be back home soon -- I won't even make a fuss when I find him in my basket of scraps.
 

Have a terrific week!

Poor kitty! I hope he is back home soon. I know how stressful it can be. Sammy had to make a trip to the kitty hospital in December, but she recovered and is good as new now.

Love your new Kaffe fabrics and I recognize some Moda Soiree in your second picture. I have a fat quarter bundle of that line. It's great!
