Design Wall Monday - January 28th

Not a lot of sewing this last week.  Between the business trip early in the week and than having a sick kiddo over the weekend, sewing time has been a bit scarce.  Drama Teen came down with the flu on Friday.  Poor kid has had a rough weekend.  She's gone from feeling like she's been run over by a bus on Saturday to being run over by a VW bug last night (her descriptors).  She's not up yet this morning, so I'm not sure how she's feeling today.  I took a day of vacation so I could be home with her today.  Hopefully she'll turn the corner today and start feeling more herself.  

Not much has changed on the design wall from this week to last week.  I've added one block each to Mon Ami and the Scrappy Star projects since last week.  I did finish block 1 for the Calico Cats quilt and am almost finished with block 2.

These blocks are tricky, I've had to do a bit of unsewing during the construction of both.  Hopefully the third time is the charm and I'll have the assemble process down for it.

  1. Your cat blocks are sweet. I sure hope you kiddo feels better soon.

  2. Love, love, love the cats! Hope the sick bug leaves your house very soon :*)

  3. I'm hoping third time is definitely a charm for you. Hope the flu is done with your house.

  4. I am not a cat lover but these with their cute little bows are adorable!

  5. I love the cats! I'm sorry about your daughter, I know how that feels. Hope you don't get it.

  6. Cat lover here and loving your cat blocks. The little bow makes them soooo cute. Glad you like my Delectable Mountains too.

  7. How cute! My Callie is a calico cat ~ original name, right? DH named her:) It looks like a very tricky block. Practice makes perfect, as they say.
