I sewed so much the first four months of this year when it was still wintry and cold. I finished several custom orders for my Etsy shop. They all seemed to come at same time and tapped deep into my creative brain. Last week, I worked an 8-5 temporary office assignment for a colleague who needed and deserved to take some vacation. I have committed to a few more of those jobs with the summer vacation season coming ahead. I got out of my sewing routine and now I am having a difficult time getting back into the sewing frame of mind.
Before this little break/slump/vacation, I started another custom order cutie pie Cat Quilt. Her aunt says she loves cats. She is a recent college graduate who has started her first major job as well as purchased her first home. She deserves a quilt for all she has accomplished, don't you think!
I pulled out my box of scraps and cleared out a bunch of leftovers. So many colors. So much texture and movement. So much fun!
The block makes up into a good size and soon it doesn't take long before you have a nice size bed quilt.
This one is not due until September. I should have my mojo back by then. Hopefully by next week.
Thanks for stopping by on WOW Day (Works in progress On Wednesday.)
I am linking up to Esther's WOW on her blog today.
Credits...This particular cat pattern, Dream Chasers, is from a book called Quilts for Kids by Carolann Palmer. The book is from the 1990's and was published by That Patchwork Place. I searched for a link online but I wasn't able to find any specific link other than a random copy of the book that was sold and other conversation.
