Walter loves it when I pile things up in a corner. The other day, I caught him pulling granny squares out of my "in progress" corner. He was actually picking them up, one at a time in his mouth and carrying them half way across the room, dropping them and going back for another...
Does that little furry face look like he thinks he is getting away with something?
Obviously no worries that anybody is going to try to stop him from his mission!
As you might be able to tell, I am working on a granny square afghan, the granny squares are each a single colour, all light and in the blue/green/turquoise family. I have not yet decided on a joining colour and it is fairly slow progress - I seem to be doing two or three squares a day and realized that they fit quite nicely into emptied tissue boxes with the top cut off. The little boxes keep the squares nice and orderly - unless the Black and White troublemaker discovers them! I don't think he knows that the ipad is also a camera so he doesn't scoot away like when I aim the real camera at him! Do you think cats might learn the difference?
Well, the granny square afghan is a long time, yet, from completion and once done will go into my gift closet for the next baby or birthday or wedding...
Also on the in-progress calender is the "somebody elses" Scraps quilt project.
All the fabrics in this little quilt, (the top is done!) were in the "given to me" bags from way back last spring that I had not managed to use in the marathon of sewing in Summer 2012.
I must say, I am now scraping the bottom of the boxes of the fabric scraps. Perhaps you can tell? The borders are all pre cut strips of 1.5 inches and 2.25 inches. There was JUST enough of that last brown to go around the quilt, I had about 3/4 of an inch left!
I must say, I was not particularly choosy about the colours for the border because those were what was left in the box. I really would have liked to add a light colour in there between the black and the red, but clearing the scrappy stuff was the priority here.!
It is a small quilt, about 45 inches by 60 inches and is possibly destined as my "invitational" contribution to the CQA in Pentiction, then to be donated to my guilds charitable quilts program.
Well, now, today is Quilt Guild Meeting Day, here in Abbotsford so I should get my things organized and get my body ready...
