I don't know what there is about cats and quilters, but every quilt studio needs a cat or two. Sammy is now discovering the joys of my sewing room...he is fascinated with all of my gadgets, especially my bobbins. I now have to put all the dangers away, and there are quite a few in my sewing room. It is like having a toddler around.
I have been busy finishing up my Primitive Gatherings "Folk Album" wool quilt. It has been a pleasure working on this for the past 3 years (no - really, I am not kidding). I love hand-appliqueing with wool, especially these beautiful hand-dyed wools. I decided that because all of the applique was done by hand, it deserved to finished off with hand-quilting. It was worth all the work - it really is beautiful.
I have also finished machine quilting a Carolina Lily quilt for Tamah, which came our really nice.
Last but not least here are some updated pics of Kip and Sam, who are having the best time together.
