I will have a finish to show you on Friday (never had the time to link up last Friday), so I have been busy.
This will be a mini-quilt, approx 22x27” made from a Marmalade charm pack from Bonnie and Camille. I`m doing a little QAL (quilt-along) with Heather Mulder Peterson, using her pattern Pretty in Pink (mini).
I also have lots of blue scrappy log cabin blocks to show, but that will come on Saturday for So Scrappy Saturday. And I have finished cutting out the background blocks for my grandson Easton’s quilt, and will begin working on the trees that will go into that. Pictures next week.
Meantime, last Sunday at our family sew-in (or Sewarama, as my DH calls it), which we hold every Sunday in my studio, my cousin Kim and her DGD Trinity, we were all busy cutting and sewing. Trini is 10 now, and wanted to work on the Koala Mittens and Joey Pouches for the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) Australia. While their recent posts have said they have enough Koala mittens, Trini wanted to work on the joey pouches and the mittens, so how could we say no? The made 3 joey pouches and 4 pairs of mittens. I will be mailing those off to Australia this week.
And speaking of Animal Welfare, I am going to have to start banning the Supervisors (better known as our cats Alfalfa and Darla) from the studio if they don`t shape up. Alfie seems to feel that part of his responsibilities include removing pins from the design wall. It has gotten so that I can`t use pins except high up where he can`t reach them.

Both he and his sister Darla (below) enjoy the colorful pin heads, and will remove them from pin cushions if we leave those lying about. I know, I know, it’s dangerous! Which I have told them. You can see just how concerned they both are.

I know what Alfie is thinking. Revenge. He will call a 4:00 a.m. “staff meeting” as payback.
