    I already posted pics of the cushion, but everyone asked to see pics of the ‘Itty Bitty Kitty’ I was planning to make….well here it is! It was really easy to make, only slightly complicated by the fact that I decided to do it with fabric made up of strips. In fact it took me longer to stuff it than it did to sew it. The pattern is by Cotton Ginny if anyone else wants to try it. For anyone that didn’t read my previous post, the cushion and kitty are gifts for Lottie, who is my friends Stu & Gill’s baby girl, she is 1 next week.

    Then I started on a denim quilt that I have decided to make for Jake, the little boy of another set of friends, Greg & Rachel. Jake is 5 in three weeks time.

    Busy busy busy! Love it!

    Hi Loretta, the denim quilt is going to be plain old squares, as you see in the pic. I'm wary of doing anything more complicated as the seams are so bulky. I'm going to use flannel for the back, and am thinking of stitching the name JAKE in huge block letters (to fill the whole space) as the quilting. Jake's birthday is in three weeks so I don't have much time to do too much fancy stuff!

    Tisha I LOVE the kitty and cushion and the quilt for Jake will be fabbo! I bet that denim is all soft and cuddly and with a flannel back, even more so!

    BTW the pic with the kitty on your head reminds me of the joke where the man walks into the doctor's with a frog on his head and the doc says 'what seems to be the trouble?' and the frog says 'I've got this bloke stuck to my bum!' LOL

    LOL Kathryn, you are getting us mixed up!

    your joke reminds me of another one....a woman goes to the doctor and says 'doctor, I've got a strawberry stuck up my bum' and the doctor says 'i've got some cream for that' :lol: :lol:

    Mary--your kitty and pillow are adorable!! I love the colors you used.

    The denim quilt is going to be great. I would not put batting (or "wadding" as you Brits say) in this quilt because between the denim and the flannel--it is already going to be warm and VERY heavy. Please show us the quilt again when you are finished--I think Jake is going to be thrilled.

    PS--I love your strawberry joke!!

    I just love your new hat! Lol! Cute ....

    Seriously though, I like the set a lot. It is a wonderful gift that I know they will appreciate very much. What a good friend you are.

    The denim one is going to be neat too. I like reusing my old jeans for things like this. I use greens and bright blue cottons to pump it up a little and sometimes embroidery. Very fun. I am looking for ward to seeing what you do with yours.

    Oh thanks Marcia, I was wondering about whether to use wadding or not, you read my mind!
