The way I see it, If they didn't want me to cheat, they shouldn't have let me have so much extra fabric! No harm done though, and I never complain about extra fabric. In fact I'm hoping that this is an indicator that I will have a lot left at the end to add to my reproduction scrap bag.
I also visited the Milltown quilt show this week and picked up this beautiful Florentine IV fabric. You can see a better picture here. It's the kind of fabric that you couldn't bare to cut up and I have no idea what to do with it, but I'm glad to keep it on my shelf and try to think of something. I also bought a yard each of 4 of the complementary fabrics in the line so I have them if I ever do figure something out.
Warmer weather also marks the opening of windows in my house which is typically the only time you get to see all three of my cats co-existing in tight areas for photo ops. The tuxedo is Friday cat, the one on the table is Zombie who you have already met, and Bacon is the one looking away.
Pretty good for a piece of junk thrown into the third floor of an antique mall! We call it Bacon's thrown. I had always planned to get some sort of bench to put in front of the windows in our bedroom so that cats could more comfortably lay to look outside and this is a perfect fit! I do keep a quilt over it because that's what the cats prefer. The sheep rug was also bought specifically for Bacon to lay on but she never has! Zombie has...once. Cats are so spoiled.
