Kitties and Fabric

It's been too long since I've posted pics of my kittens. That should actually be "kittens" since the girls are now four and a half years old. You'll also see hints of a project I've been working on, though I think I'm going to set it aside for awhile. Have to say, trying to keep things secret is really bad for my blogging.

Lily:
Pokey:

Upside down Pokey:
Big yawn:

I still don't have a hand quilting project and it's making me nuts. I've put this time to good use though and finally finished my Amish One Patch (which I quilted in Cairo, which tells you how long that has been on my to-do list) and Joyeux Noel. Next is hand stitching the binding of Mini Hotflash. I still have two enormous quilts to add binding to. Sigh. I really shouldn't let these things stack up.
Some more Fungly Quilt Challengers: Woolywoman and Roz.
Sarah posted ages ago on her I-Spy leftover bit log cabins and her love of scraps and I can't remember if I told you about it. Well, doesn't hurt to recommend it twice, because it's a very fun post. Sarah is also an ardent Flickrer and has now created a Flickr group for fans of Gwen Marston and Freddy Moran's Collaborative Quilting. Check it out here.

Lily and Pokey are SO cute!! Isn't it funny, we still call Fred 'kitty' and he's almost 4 now!!

KathieB said...

Gorgeous eyes. Wish I could get our cat Boris to yawn. We just spent a bundle on getting his teeth cleaned and I haven't seen his teeth since!

I love how round Lilly's head is- so sweet.

Fran said...

As always Tonya, beautiful kittens, gorgeous eys, and fun quilts to go see. Couldn't get any better. ~~Fran:c)

I guess we brought your no-show projects on ourselves when we asked for something new in the book -- what were we thinking?!?!? Great kitty pics, though. Lily's eyes are amazing, and the yawning kitty photo is priceless.

Diane said...

Gotta ask ~ Do you always match the photo backgrounds to your cats' eyes? What incredible eyes they are!

Catherine said...

Those eyes!! Oh, my gosh -- what incredible kitty eyes!! Gorgeous!

You sure make me wish I could have an indoor kitty....just look at those cuties!

Sharon said...

Your kitties look so good - they have the most incredible eyes! And you have great camera skills! Love that upside-down yawn!
Thanks for all the links. Love Sarah's Flicker group of Gwen and Freddy-type quilts. Very inspiring! And I'm really enjoying everyone's Fungly quilt-making. Wish I could join in, but too much else going on. Rats!

Tanya said...

The girl kitties are beautiful. How about Habib and Howler? Hope to see some handsome boy kitties too. By the way. I have another one on my blog recently...

Trish said...
