So, here's the culprit. This is the fun thing I've been working on. I have to get it done for the little girlie that will be born in May. It's the first child of my oldest son, Cliff and his wife, Lorien. I know. I know. It's too exciting for words! I am almost done. On top of the quilt is the unstuffed pillow that goes with it. All I have to do, besides that, is tie the gray part of the quilt with yellow embroidery floss. This has been a tricky one with all the appliqueing. It's actually from a pattern that I bought in the 70's and had made for my second son, Kip, when he was a baby. That one was in green. I love the design.
By the way-I found the company, The Gingham Goose, on line. You can still buy that old pattern plus some others. I made another one of a train for my other son, Charlie. It's very cute also (I know, all you men out there, this isn't the post for you but I doubt you got this far. Probably zipped off of it at the beginning, right?)
Anyway, I fell in love with the bird material and thought how funny that is that the cat would be surrounded by birds and its happily asleep.
