Time for least I hope so

Frank is off to Animal Control for the Tour of Life Event CAAWS is participating in.  We have been trying to get to a no-kill shelter for about 4 years now.  Winona Judd sponsors this event and will be there today.  CAAWS has a booth, cute young girls in a cat costume and Frank.  I hope he makes it out alive.

Don't worry about these two pictures, they are at our CAAWS shelter and both have been adopted to wonderful homes.  Arwen the dog is with an empty nest couple and Bijou the cat is with family in a ritzy neighborhood. 

I plan on first clearing out some space on the cutting table and making some bags.  What I really need to be doing is finishing up the Block Quilt Challenge due on Thursday night.  I think it should be bigger, hey, it is longer than it is wide!  LOL.

But I really like it with no more borders.  Maybe I will use some of that black to bind it with.  Yes.  Maybe.  Oh, I don't know.

Then I thought maybe some green would go on the outside.  The black I have around the center block is just too much black beyond the yellow.  Let me try some of my green that matches that huge rick rack.

I guess I will play with this today.  What are you working on today?

NOTE:  All done with the quilt.  Went to see my mom at the nursing home and we sat outside on the patio.  I sewed the binding down and we listened to the birds and watched the squirrels.  As you can see, I went with yellow binding.  The green looked awful!  Really bad.    This will be as nice quilt for a small girl.

It goes to the REME Guild for a Viewer's Choice Vote later this month.  We are doing this in two guilds and I get them confused.  This next week is River City and I didn't get one from there.  We chose the center block and designed the quilt around it.

This goes to The Giving Quilt Guild.  They are a 501(c)3 and act as a middleman between quilters and organizations who need quilts for distribution like:  Habitat For Humanity, St. Jude, Shriner's Burn Center, Woman's Hospital Neonatal Unit, the Baton Rouge (or surrounding area) Police Depts, Quilts of Valor. And more.  If you want your quilt to specifically go to an particular organization, you say that on the donation paper and they get it there.  They are organizing a one time Japan shipment. 




  1. After cleaning house - I am avoiding anything else that looks like work. I sat in the sunshine and read for an hour, slept for another hour and now here I am visiting with a BFF. Designed a wall hanging on EQ and am letting it sit over night to see how it feels in the am.

    Hugs - Marie

  2. I just found your blog. I am so glad I did. Love your fur babies. And your quilt is just beautiful and what a wonderful cause.

  3. Very pretty quilt. I think the organization you're donating to is wonderful. So many ways to help those in need, furry friends included!


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
