okay got my colorway figured out. the pink is 3+ yards though it was designated the backing for a pink ribbon quilt which i havent started on yet so it is up for grabs. i just need to get some more red (oh oh a purchase) because the one i have sufficient yardage of is a solid and i wanted a little pattern but all in all it will all work out. now i can get started real soon.
I have my magazine... if I can find fabric from my stash I would love to join you all...
Havplenty, your floral is goreous!!!
Gigi, sure hope you find enough fabric in your stash so you can join us!
caroline s--i have a red tabby, too, but we've always called them marmalade cats for orange or ginger marmalade. mine is named tiger, so you can see what they were thinking at the rescue! hahaha. he's a very sweet boy, as has been every red/orange/dunn tabby i've ever known and has just out grown his 2-3 yr sillies and is now quite adult. i can tell he was abused still by his once in a while startled reaction to a movement or sound that our other cat doesn't even blink at. what area of the country are you and he from?(sorry, for a moment i flashed back to a suzanne sugarbaker joke). i grew up in new england primarily. tiger is from philly. i'm lousy at getting pictures, always say i will and almost never do because i'm really good at blurry. but i will try to remember to enclose one before this thread is done--that gives me plenty of time-right!? i think it would be fun if each of us, at some point in this trip included pictures of our furry quilt inspectors and assistants. do you?
