Bits & Bobs

No lovely quilt pictures to share today, nothing new to see on that front I'm afraid. So instead I thought I'd share a picture of Holly - she's grown so much! She's sleeping on her cat tree here, Marty built it for her (and for Madaline who's completely disinterested) and he's really glad that Holly uses it.

I've been struggling along with my drawing software this evening - I have some ideas in my head for projects I'd like to work on, and I just can't get them out of my head and into something I will remember later. A table runner/topper is what I'm working on, and I have the applique component together, but I just can't remember what I originally had decided for the pieced component. I'm sure I'll remember soon, but it's scary to me how much I can forget and how fast!! I was dreaming this project up at the quilt store today, and by the time I got home, most of the idea had escaped me. I need to get into the habit of carrying a notebook with me I think.

Not much stitching going on here in the past couple of days. I have almost finished the directions and the in-progress samples, so it'll go in the mail directly after Easter. I will work on the last bits and pieces tomorrow afternoon and in any spare time over the long weekend.

I'm also so excited about the blue and cream quilt - and thank you so much for all the enthusiastic responses regarding the border - just love you all to bits! I'd really like to finish that top this month, so I'll make that one of my goals. I didn't even bother to set any goals in March, but this month I'm determined to set a few - I really work best when I set myself goals and deadlines. Otherwise I get distracted so easily ... I'm sure I'm not the only ADD quilter!

Well, that's it from me for today - I'll check in with you all again really soon!

Holly looks so contented on her tree, she's certainly growing though.

The photo of Holly is adorable! Such little angels when they sleep. =) How old is she now? We'll be picking up a kitten this summer. I can't wait. It's been a long time since I've had that kind of energic "help" in my workroom. LOL

Your blue and cream quilt is turning out marvelous. The borders will be the icing!

Heehee... There must be a high percentage of ADD quilters. I can see 7 different projects in various stages around my workroom. I flit from one to another. Somedays none of those appeal and it takes lots of will power not to start another. Know of any support groups? =)

She is getting big... and those paws seem to look big to me, too!

Doesn't she look comfortable on her tower? What a pretty cat!

I love the pieced border plan for your blue/cream quilt. It is going to be a stunner.

What a sweet little Holly cat. :-) And a true quilt blogger you are. If you can't post something quilty, a cat pic will ALWAYS do. LOL!

Holly is very cute. I'd love to have a cat again. I nearly was given the honour of looking after a friend's cat while she moved to Melbourne for a few years, but just as well, because I don't think I could give Megsy back.
