Fun in the sewing room today!

Today after Church and lunch, I hung out in my sewing room. I have been in there as much as I can lately. My furry friends love to be in there, but the (large) puppy isn't allowed in there because it seems to be the kitty sanctuary! I think I'm going to put a screen door on the doorway though.  De-furring the ironing pad gets old, And I don't think I want the fur all over my fabric. I do love the little furry friends though. They provide me with a lot of comic relief! Here are a few pictures of them, and also of the quilt I am still working on for my class this past Friday! I have some applique still to do in the borders. What I'm working on at the same time that you might see on the cutting table is a pattern by Country Threads that I'm making for the Humane Society's Auction in a few weeks. Our shop donates a quilt each year, and in the past it has been a sample we are not using any more.  The past few years though, I have made special one just for the occasion! I purchased this pattern last year at Spring Market in their booth! It says "don't shop, Adopt!"  So far I just have the pinwheels and half the checkerboard blocks done.  Next will be applique! Thanks Country Threads for the wonderful pattern!
   Oh!! Check out my post from a few weeks ago! I finally was able to post the pictures! I don't know what happened to change the ability, but it did!
     Have a great week!

This is Grey kitty. She is the star on the cover of the Fall 2011 issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine! She belongs to my daughter, Kristen. Kristen says she is now a Diva!
This is Peepers. She is in the Winter 2012 issue. She is "Big Stuff" and is the boss of Chester, below!
Poor Chester.  He  just wants to be their friend. He is only 1 1/2 years old. He carries on and cries to hang out with them!  They hiss at him. Poor baby! This is outside my sewing room. The hallway, no one wants to vacuum. See my TV cable?  I'm married to an electrician! Ha ha
Sorry these were sideways! I forgot to turn them before posting! You get the idea though, I bet!!
    I hope to finish the border applique soon! But I have a deadline for the humane society quilt! Better get busy!!! 
         I hope you get to sew all day tomorrow!!

  1. That is such a cute pattern and perfect for an auction quilt.
    I have one I need to finish with a dog in a garden.
    My kitties are pains, they climb on everything, knock what they can over and we won't mention the fur if I let them in to sleep in there, so the door stays closed, lol.

    1. Thanks Debbie, Country Threads has several really great animal quilt patterns! And yes, the fur! Right now Peepers is chasing a pencil all over the room, and Chester pooped from trying to be with them and is alseep in the hallway! Ha!

    1. I can't wait to see it done! I haven't had time to work on it since Monday morning, so hopefully this weekend I'll get it closer to being done. I am making double of what I need, so If I have time I can put together a second one for them. I have a cat block I made a while ago, and I might ad-lib and put that in, so there will be a cat quilt and a dog quilt! Fingers crossed!

    1. The pinwheels and checkerboard blocks are 4", but the churn dash quilt blocks are 6"! My furry friends are a lot of fun! Last night the cats were sneaking around downstairs when Chester fell asleep, or so they thought! Next thing, there was a lot of chasing going on! Haha!
