There’s nothing like an unexpected gift to get you in the holiday spirit. This adorable little kitty was in the mailbox the other day. She came all the way from Florida to sit under my tree. Isn’t she cute? I’m calling her Mirabelle.
Judy of Hickity-Pickity makes these kitties. She also makes many other colorful and fun items for girls and girls-at-heart. You can find out more about her here. Or view her Flickr photostream here. I am always amazed by her creations.
Thank you, Judy!
Okay, we weren’t really off the grid, but we were away from home for several days last week. We left Stinka in charge. A quick road trip to meet up with a few family members in Vegas kept me away from the sewing machine and blogging.
Pam recommended a side trip to Henderson to visit Quiltique. Great call! As you can see from my purchase, I couldn’t resist some fat quarters of Pam’s fabric. And since Rachael has inspired me to continue my paper piecing adventure with her ever-growing stack of adorable Sis Boom hexies, I had to buy some of those too.
Yesterday, in between laundry and housework, I tried to make up for lost time by preparing this little stack. After an afternoon with these, I understand how people become obsessed.
What have you been up to? Ready for Christmas? I’m not. But I’m happy to sit and forget all about it while I sew up a new stack of cute, perfect hexies.
