Secret Santa

Okay... Truth is, secret santa is one of those things that always brings me more anxiety than pleasure. So imagine my joy when the name I pulled out of the hat was for a fellow crazy cat lady.

I immediately knew what I was going to get her. I've been toying around with the idea of making a cat quilt based of a picture I saw on Pinterest for a while now. I only had two weeks, but, it was a relatively simple pattern and I figured I could bang out a lap sized quilt in that amount of time.

So I busted out my graph paper and my handy dandy ruler and made myself a pattern. That part was fun.

The rest--well, lets just say that this was one of those quilts where if it could go wrong, it did. Often repeatedly.


But it's done! And, because of an error or two that had to be "fixed" I think it turned out even cooler than originally intended.

My sewing machine and myself may no longer be on speaking terms, but I think our 15 year friendship will survive in the end. We just need some time apart to remember what it is we like about each other.

There were things said, on both sides, that don't bare repeating in polite company. Hahaha!

But anyway, here it is:

I've given up ever trying to get the cats' whiskers straight. I think we're all just going to have to deal.

Now. To convince Bitty that it isn't a brand new cat bed, sewn just for her.

Wish me luck? :P
