I've talked before about my kitty, Molly. She's a very sweet tuxedo that usually looks like she's pleading.

Or, due to the white patch on her upper lip, sneering. Usually pleading.

Normally, she doesn't care all that much about yarn, or fabric.

That being said...

Today, I was updating photos for two of my etsy listings- a dropstitch scarf and a half circular shawl and then she decides to care.

Although, not that she'll show her face. In the year and a half that I've had her in my life, she's very rarely allowed her face to be photographed.

Orange and Blue (revealed)

I recently got the quilt back from the quilters! Wednesday afternoon, I got the call that it was ready and I went and picked it up. And it was GORGEOUS.

So today, under the watchful supervision of Molly (above), I attached the binding. 

Even though handsewing, in my opinion, looks better, it comes out all sucky when I try. So machine sewing it is. 

(Doesn't that quilting look fabulous? I'm really happy with it.)

Sneak Peak (also known as, Orange and Blue)

Orange and blue are not colors I would have instinctively put together. In fact, the (perceived) contrast) was why I bought the fabric- I planned on doing a specific quilt, and I thought the contrast would have looked REALLY good. (and, let's admit it, different than my usual color schemes.) But when I went to print and start the planned quilt, the pattern had disappeared.


I had to come up with something else to do with all this fabric. Which didn't work with ANYTHING else in my fabric stash (except, of course, the black and gray I bought for the original quilt.) But I had decided I didn't like the gray with the orange and blue.

But then I saw this other quilt.

To be honest, I'd seen pictures floating around Pinterest before. It was interesting, using half square triangles (which was a new concept/technique for me), and maybe a Someday quilt, but I was seeing it in a different light.

I was seeing it in Orange and blue.

Keep tuned for the reveal, folks. Planned for this coming Wednesday, February 10th.

My kitty, Molly. Who is an absolute sweetheart.

Don't you want to just rub that belly?
