Cat, Quilt and Sunday Afternoon

Standard

Here she is last Sunday taking over my quilt! I went to do some work on the center of the quilt and found Ms Gracie Cat taking a Sunday afternoon {all day} nap! This writing is mostly about me trying to get my quilt and table back and not  forcing the issue. I went back upstairs after making Ms Gracie go through a photo shoot.  Yes, I did get to quilt finally, she wanted to eat and had to leave to come up stairs for dinner.

Jumping/Leaping Cats or Kittens? Quilt

Standard

How do you figure out a name for a quilt?

I came up with JUMPING CATS  guess that was the first name that hit me!

Well I finished it 3 cheers!!!   Cheer….Cheer…cheer

Here’s the pictures, and it’s one off my BUCKET list makes me feel good, however, I am afraid I might be skipping #2 on The List (lose weight)

I am now working on #1  C’s quilt since he graduates in May and I need to get graduation finalized around here (homeschooling)

Time to get pictures ordered (we took some a couple of different days), announcements, cap and gown, diploma ,ect.

Back to the quilt…the list….

Here’s a few pictures of the Jumping Cats:
