I've been AWOL from the Rainbow Scrap Challenge the last few months but decided to try to catch up a bit... so far all I've accomplished is this big scrappy star block:
and a handful of Barn Door blocks for this month's Block Lotto:
Other than that, I've been tech-editing a book of bags & pouches and made a few samples that I can't show yet, and pulled together this quilt top from a pattern called Ribbon Box Quilt that I found on the Cloud 9 website -- they have a bunch of interesting free patterns:
In cat news -- Lucy and Linus have discovered sewing! I walked in on this scene a few mornings ago -- it's the first time I've seen them take an interest.
I found a fun book at the library called Cats in Hats by Sara Thomas and pulled out some yarn leftovers right away. My guys would never sit still for hats, but I found a couple of semi-willing subjects at Cat Town. Here's Jamie sporting a punk faux-hawk:
and Sinatra (he's got fabulous blue eyes!) in his party hat:
(no cats were harmed in the making of these photos...)
