My first blog post

This blog will contain my thoughts on sewing and quilting, kitty cats, and anything I happen to be into at the time.

Richard and I visited Southridge WalMart and Sam's Club this morning and spent a fortune in cat food and litter. At least I can wait a while before buying more. It is getting more and more expensive keeping cats. The worst part is they are finicky, they will eat something once and then never again. And I swear Sam only eats so he can puke. I am cleaning it up after every feeding.

I am currently making a quilt by Eleanor Burns, Tossed Nine-Patch. I have it all together except for the outer border. I can't decide how wide to make it. I will take it and another flimsy I just finished, Bonnie K. Hunter's Carolina Christmas, to the long arm next week I hope. My Carolina Christmas is not a Christmas quilt, not done in Christmas colors. I did it in pinks and blues, with gold and lots of background whites. I probably should rename it. I made a Yellow Brick Road out of yellows and blues and it is ready for its borders. I will be quilting it myself, as it is a baby or lap quilt. I won't quilt any bigger than that. I figure my time is better spent piecing the quilt tops.
