My greeting

Dishes in the sink, fabric piling up, cat hair on my clothes-all is well in my world!

Time Flies...

I can't believe it's the 26th already! What a slacker I am! 
 This is George. He is beautiful! And i need to get my butt in gear this weekend and finish him!
His owner was kind enough to donate to Buffalo Paws and Claws and so I need to as my friend Sarah would say "Gitter done"!

 The middle section of the raffle quilt IS done! Now i just have to do the borders. Sorry this is a little blurry. My first picture was real cute with my dog Jack sitting in the middle but my camera card decided to "poop the bed" so to speak.
 The one table cover is ALMOST done! Just have to sew around the blue letters. I would love to get this done tomorrow if possible.
I don't think I ever showed any pictures of my studio "sections".This is my bead area. The buffet is over 8' long. I have lots of beads. What is the definition of obsessed?

Terrific Tuesday

I took a half day vacation today, and it was great! I got a lot done, and have groceries again! So I don't have to have cheese and mustard sandwiches anymore this week! (Hey, any port in the storm when I'm hungry!)
I finally got the letters down on the table covers I'm making for Paws and Claws- tacked the letters down with a little glue and then will sew around the edges. 
 I also got some more rows done on the raffle quilt. I love how scrappy this looks- there are so many adorable animal prints out there. I used the Fat Cat ruler to cut the pieces. My goal- to have this done by the end of the month!
Spread the word- Whiskerfest 2012 is going to be at the Moose Lodge in East Aurora. Details are on the updated website on this page. It's not until November but lots to do! Mark your calendars!

 2011 ended sadly- I have lost my beautiful Josie. She got ill so very fast and the evil that is cancer took her away from me. I was fortunate to have her for 5 months. I would do it again in a heartbeat even if I knew how it was going to end. She was a joy and I will try to live my life like she did- no matter what happened to her , she kept on purring and loving life.
 So now it is 2012! And I am planning my fundraising projects for Buffalo Paws and Claws.
Here is the start of a raffle quilt I am making. My game plan is to have this pieced by the end of January so it can go get quilted and start selling tickets ASAP! It is all dog and cat fabric- some I had and some was donated- it will be very scrappy!
 OF COURSE my assistant Louise must inspect every step- the look on her face is so funny.
Here are the first couple of rows sewn together, I have a long way to go! (Louise finally gave up)

Happy New Year!
