Tonight's Sew & Tell

First up is Ls' near finish. She was working on the binding tonight...
L is getting much more creative with her quilting. Great job L!!! 8-)
Bags in foreground were being made by Ac for the Grandmother's to Grandmother's Campaign.
The Stephen Lewis Foundation

This is a sample that Dl is making for a sample at one of our local shops...
Love it D! Gorgeous fabrics! 8-)
This is Du's effort from a weekend retreat class a couple of weeks back. I believe it is called a Bling Thing... Apparently very simple to put together... Wonderful D! 8-)
Nd had been busy with Pineapple blocks... if you click on the photo and look closely, you can see the end result in the magazine... Awesome N! 8-)
One last photo of the Cats quilt, promise!!! Jc brought it to show us the finished result, with the wonderful quilting that the pro did for it...
This cat is the "special" cat of the whole thing, as it is to represent the receiver's cat. Click on photo for closer look at the quilting...
This is how the rest of the cats were quilted...
The odd mouse was quilting into the inner border... darling! 8-)
And a mouse in each corner of the quilt. The outer border was all done in feathers... Nicely done! 8-)
Your friend will love this quilt J!!! 8-)

This was my first night out in about 4 weeks now. Feeling much better, though I still have to take it easy, or I will be missing the retreat at the end of the month!!! It was nice seeing everyone again, and I was so glad to get out of this house!!! Feeling the cabin fever...

Today I made and attached the binding and label to the Sudoku quilt. Tomorrow I shall be handstitching it, and spending time getting caught up with all of your blogs tomorrow...

Happy stitchings!
Myra

I haven't seen the attic window at shows for a long time now. I don't see many pineapples either, so this was a treat. Hope you are feeling better. Sorry about the seasons flying by. It seemed ours did also here. Bummer...because I do not like winter.

Ya' gotta be good because you don't want to miss the retreat.
I certainly enjoyed seeing everyone's projects. It gives me ideas but I have to keep those in check for now.

I'm not a catperson, but the cat quilt IS very ice! I love the mice and now I know how hard it is to machine quilt: great quiltingjob..
