That was her first day home at my son's house. She follows him everywhere. She loves him so much.
Apparently she loves his retro bathroom, too. The tile matches her eyes, and the black trim tile matches the rest of her. I can't wait to cat-sit in July!!! The rescue named her Sylvie, but he preferred Sophie, and so do I.
I haven't been home a whole lot lately, but today I was able to finish up a couple of new patterns. Just in time for the holiday! Here is Liberty - -
Do NOT look close at my satin stitches in the center of the flowers. I normally avoid that stitch, as I'm rubbish at it, but decided the only way to get better was to just DO it. I can live with it....
And also, Freedom.
Both are in my shop, Allie-oops Designs, and Freedom is, naturally, free! My son thought that was appropriate. Both are finished with a log cabin block to turn them into either snack mats or table toppers, but you could easily put the log cabin block on the bottom for a wall hanging. Full instructions are included for the mats - if you orient the blocks vertically, just swap out the border strips, put the longer strips on the sides instead of top and bottom.
My next project is going to be a larger quilt. I've been wanting to do something with birds, and it's starting to come together in my head. It'll be applique and I'll use that gorgeous romantic fabric I bought, I can't wait.
It's almost bedtime [it's 8pm] so I'm going to sign off, the rest of the week is flat-out busy - have a great week, and enjoy your Memorial Day weekend, for those in the states!
