Happy Veterans Day

I have all the hand stitching of the wool done, but didn't have time to snap a photo.  What is left for an evening after Tuesday night is the facial features and the bow that attaches the star to the cat's tail.  I'm very pleased with my hand work on Fall Whiskers.
Bountiful is the next 2019 UFO to tackle.  These are the fabrics that I'll be using along with a photo of the pattern.
I was able to cut it all out and stitch up the flying geese that will make up the starts that are all over this design.  I will be trimming them during the week after Fall Whiskers is complete.

Tuesday evening is the monthly meeting of Sunshine Quilt Guild.  I'm looking forward to Jean Impey's presentation and all the other activities that will make up the November meeting of the guild.

Karol
Krazy Khristmas Konifer for Rita
Krazy Khristmas Konifer for Mom
Krazy Khristmas Konifer for Karen
These are all 2019 UFO finishes.  Fall Whiskers is also a 2019 UFO that will finish in time.  Bountiful that you will see tomorrow is yet another that needs finishing in 2019.  Golly, there are still more to finish...looking tough now that we are half way into November and Bonnie Hunter's Frolic starting up in just a couple of weeks!
This is the piece work in cotton fabrics for Fall Whiskers.  As mentioned previously this comes from a kit.  I would have chosen a brighter green print for the piece, but the center with the cat, pumpkin, moon, and star are the "stars of the show".
The wool is cut and fused in place.  I will be working on the hand stitching during the football games today.

Design Wall Monday, November 4, 2019

Starting the next 2019 UFO this week.  This one is from a kit I picked up at Road to California Quilt Show.  It is by Calico Patch called Fall Whiskers.  It finishes at 12" square.  The Calico Patch booth had all sorts of cute patterns, but of course this one caught my eye =^.^=  I'm working my way into two areas of quilting that involve wool and small projects.  I have a bit more binding to do still and will work on that first.  

Oh you know I'll be pulling what I can from my stash for the just released Frolic! design that Bonnie Hunter has done.  Not sure I'll have enough of the green constant so it might mean a trip to Paradise Sewing and/or Rosie's.  Sorry to hear this week that Memory Lane is closing its store front later this year.

The weather has been treating us well in San Diego.  Hope it is doing the same from wherever you are reading about my quilting! 

Sunday Stash Report, November 3, 2019

I added to my stash this week, but fortunately it will go out quickly.  Since it will move out I decided not to add it to the status.  They are all fabrics to be used in the Sunshine Craft Show that takes place the first week of December.  Kerry has the five projects on their way to her now.  She will do the quilting and finish up one of the projects with her stash.  The light bulb embellishments will fill one tree that is plain.  The photo also shows a purchase of white and black buttons.  These will be for Kat's Kall; the eyes of the cats in the project.  It makes it easier for the quilting not to have embellishments in place during that process.


With instructions drafted by Connie from the Sunshine Guild I made one of the straw pouches.  It turned out pretty cute.  I added a button to cover the tacking of the Velcro underneath.  Thanks Connie!

I missed sharing a birthday gift that came from my Mom.  Meet Fabolo.  He is my second guy in my collection of Alley Cats created by Margaret Le Van.  Fabolo's pick up Line is "On you...it looks fabulous!".  Thanks Mom!

These are the projects for hand stitching today during the football games.  All known Christmas Gifts that I plan to have in the recipients hands before the holidays so that they can be enjoyed during this year's holiday.
