March

Where has the month of March gone?? The weather has been incredibly nice, so much of my March has been spent outside or running around town! Our little Chamomile was spayed last week, and she has been recovering nicely.
A big part of the month was spent tearing wallpaper and painting the kitchen and eating area of our home. In the midst of it all, the formal dining room became a dumping ground for EVERYthing in the way. Today, I cleaned it all up, putting things back where they go, and decided to throw this quilt on the table for a season. Of course, in my house, where there is a quilt, there is a cat........or two...The quilt was made a couple of years ago, for my 50th birthday, by my friend Sue. Now that the weather has changed, it can be used in a more decorative way.
I did make a couple of needle cases for birthday gifts recently. This is one of them....It is a tri-fold and opens up much larger than you would think.The inside of these gave me fits! I am not a seamstress, so it was tedious. The first one I followed the directions to a T....the second, I made some alterations. Namely, I swapped out the velcro for snaps. Much more attractive! I filled them up and sent them on their way!I also, tried my hand at these 2 inch bowtie blocks. I am HOOKED! I found these on Jeanne's blog.The dime shows you just how tiny they are. I am excited to make a miniature quilt full of these!
Some applique has gotten done on the 3rd Henrietta Whisker's block....not as much as I would like :(I have motivation to get this quilt top done now. I received my next applique quilt pattern in the mail!!With the weather so nice, applique will be the way to go! Hope your March has been wonderful. I need to make my blog rounds! I have missed so much in the last few weeks.
Thanks for the visit!

I love the quilt your friend made you and it is displayed so nicely on the table. Cats and all!

Those are some tiny bow ties but also so adorable.

Have a great week Bren!

Glad you started the bow ties! Aren't they fun? I see you have the same "no cats on the table" rule that we have in our house. :-)
