Penny Is Mine

First off is the quilt top I finally finished. The blocks were meant for a retreat our group was going to in Ohio this past year , so is called Road to Ohio ,but it had to be canceled . I had to finish the quilt anyway. It is all Kansas Toubles fabrics and the sawtooth border is made mostly from charms I received from Carol , of Carols Crafts in a giveaway a year or so ago.
I have also pieced the backing from a lot of scraps. Hoping to get it machine quilted in the following months.
Finally Penny has found a resting place in the living room. This is a drop leaf table that I have in front of the picture window with a spool cabinet. I used to keep glass on it and also had little glass toothpicks on the window sill. But knowing cats like to look out the window I moved them and all the glass so she could get up there via the chair.
A couple days ago I saw her get up here and looking out the window. Walked around the back and laid down like this on the other side of the spool cabinet. I didn't have my camera on me then. So Yesterday I did and took this.
Then the special thing this morning when I woke up, here she was up around my head purring. I had been trying to get her to come and sleep with me but she hadn't gotten up on the bed when I was around. So I think she has finally accepted me as her friend.

This is anouther mystery that our Hollow friends did right after Christmas. It is a Thimbleberries pattern for several years ago that the gal half sized. All Thimbelberries fabrics of course.
If you click on the picture you can see that the zig-zag is flying geese. Tiny.

I am working now on the new Schnibble's Sweet Spot for the Pink Cushion Monthly Mini's. I have all the blocks made, just need to square most of them up and sew together.
Minis are fun to do and don't take so long.

We still have some snow and it has been very cold the last few days but they say 50 for Sunday and the first of next week. I know you friends out in the midwest are sure getting it again.
Thanks for stopping by and will talk to you again in a few days.

Glad to see that Penny is finally settling in. She will be a great companion for you once she does.

Your quilts are wonderful Eileen. You truly are an inspiration.
