BEEN SEWING---

Good for me!!!!!
Am working on the Jo Morton quilt--
need to have it finished by next Sunday--
Here is her star blocks--
made  these 4 today to go with--
the paper pieced stars I did a couple weeks ago--
and went to the quilt shop today and picked up those two prints in the background for the lattice around the blocks and borders!!!!!
and I picked up these two black and burnt brown ones--
for some 'crazy' reason--I like them!!!!
they do go nice with some of the fabrics in her line-soooo!!!

Yesterday I went to a Knitting class to learn how to knit Christmas balls--
it has cables going up the sides--was a fairly easy pattern to do--
and this is how I finished mine off--they just had a yarn loop at the top--
but you know me--gotta be 'different'!!!!!!

and yes--
I took more 'kitty' pictures---
here is the 3  orphans--aren't they getting big???
Here is the one black one--this one cry's all the time!!!
and the tiger one is one of Spirits kittens--
and she is a pill too--here she is just playing with the carpet I guess!!!
and here is 'my' baby--
Both Pam, the shop manager, and I love this one--
he slept in my arms today for awhile--sweet!!!!

well--gotta go--need to finish about 5 sets of mittens tonight--
our local firemen are collecting items to send to NYCity or NJ area--
so want to get them done--will go shopping at Walmart tomorrow morning
for some other things!!!!

Hugs, and prayers for everyone out there in blogland and the storm areas--
from Di and all her kitties--yes--even Miss Gracie!!!!

I can see you get a lot of enjoyment from the kittens - aren't they growing so much!! Your Jo Morton project is looking really good and your cabled tree decoration is really cool - like your hanger!

Love that ball you knitted! I have been wanting to try knitting. Crocheting hurts my thumb joint. I have been wondering if this might be easier for me. I have been away from the blogging world for a while! Good to be back and catch up with everybody!

Cool Christmas ball! Would never have thought of that one. You have been quite busy--the blocks are really nice. Good fall colors. The babies are growing so fast. It is a really good thing they are really far away from me.
