Here Kitty, Kitty

This is all Karens fault. I'm not making any more blocks (yet!), because I have a great Hallow'een quilt already. Don't you think these will make great pillows? Maybe do Courthouse Steps around the block? I've had this book, Redwagon Originals, for a long time, and every so often I pull out a book from the case just to flip through for inspiration or to look at the pieces in the book. This was the book I pulled out last week!

Speaking of cats, just look at the commotion that Miss Molly caused in the household last week. She spooks easily and the dog made a sudden move, which promted the cat to take off. She hits the laminate floor and slides. I hear a crash, and thought it was a box of glasses knocked off a little table in the corner of the eating area. Not so much! Notice the leg that is NOT attached anymore.

She came flying back out of the room, I don't think she touched 2 of the 7 steps to get upstairs and she was gone! Thank goodness this didn't land on her!

That's all the excitement from my corner of the world. I have been machine quilting for customers with a time crunch. So along with fall yard work, (my $14 fall planter)

a day job and the 2 four legged kids, this is keeping me very busy. I shall breathe after the current piece on my machine is finished.
I'm loving this amazing fall weather and all the colors,

I loved Karen's quilt, too. The difference is, you did something about it, making your own scary cats. But it sounds like you have your own built-in scaredy-cat. : )

Your cat blocks are wonderful! Love your Fall planter too. Sorry to see your broken table - thankfully the cat & dog were uninjured. ;)

Chain reaction for sure! I made my cats quilt top after seeing one in a photo in my prim Yahoo group. Now you made one after seeing mine.

The applique kitty's are so cute!! Yours? Not so much! A cat knocked over and broke your table? She must have been scared!!

HA! I would loved to see the commotion that went down with the kitty and pooch! Looks wild and crazy!!!

As for the other stationary appliqu├ęd kitties, I like the shape of them..too cute!

Woo Hoo on that spectacular fall flower arrangement, 14.00 dollars sounds like a bargain!!!
