Holiday Quilt Swap

Time for another mini quilt swap. This time the theme is Christmas Holiday. I have a applique pattern in mind. Since this will be my first attempt at applique, I have a paper pieced pattern as a backup. :) Here are the fabrics I've picked out for the mini.

Friday Cat Blogging

I haven't posted pictures of the felines lately. I have the rare Lucky and Lady sighting. Lady isn't very fond of her brother. For the record she doesn't like the other two either. L&L will be 17 on September 1.

The girls often curl up together, however Pearl is trying to take over Myra's spot. Myra likes to sit in that chair when I am sewing.

Jens is coming!

To the Tour of Missouri that is. After recuperating from the terrible crash in the Tour de France, this will be his first race back. I was REALLY hoping Cancellara would be joining him, but he will be at the Vuelta along with Andy and Frank. Jens talks about his rehab.

More Colorblock Swap Blocks

The second set of 20 blocks. I chose pink this time, although the photo color is a little off. I'm still trying to decide how to put them together. The resulting quilt will go to the Linus Project. The swap coordinator, Margaret, is a big supporter of this effort, so it seemed like a good home for the blocks.
