here, kitty, kitty . . .

Although I tried mightily to resist and I have plenty on my Christmas gift-wanna-make plate, I succumbed to the call of Elizabeth Hartman’s Cat-Quilt-Along (or Cat Vent). Every day in December until Christmas, she will be posting a pattern for a different cat. In the end, all the cat faces will go together to make a 30″ x 35″ mini-quilt.

After a brain cramp last night regarding basic assembly (I should know better than to try to sew after 10 pm!), I have found the blocks easy to make–in fact, I’ve decided to make two of each. It’s fun reaching into scrap bins and pulling out old bits to make these feline faces. Despite the usual frenetic pace of Christmas preparations, I plan to take a little time every day to devote to this project–the daily hour in the sewing room will be my gift to me.

I thought I’d make the first cat, Ferdinand, in honor of one of our cats, Hobbes.

Do you see the resemblance?

Today’s cat, Bernadette, reminds me of Grumpy Kitty–look at that unibrow!
