    I have had the flu all this week and for some reason when I was having a great difficulty breathing I sat down at my sewing machine and started to sew. My breathing got better as I relaxed into it and before I knew it I had completed the kitty kat top. Then I started on the bold and bright blocks from a swap on my old group board. I just finished that quilt althought I had way too much help trying to sew without catching any paws or tails. The cat's seem to love the really bright colors and jumped onto the bed before I could get pictures taken. I have a Christmas in July king size quilt top pieced but haven't found the fabric for the borders yet. I will finish it later today and post more picks of it when I get the borders attached. Then its on to a quilt for my daughter I want to have finished by the end of the weekend.

    Wow! If you sew these while you feel lousy, how much do you accomplish when you feel great? Terrific job!

    I couldn't lay down because I was having trouble breathing from my asthma so I sat at the sewing machine and turned two UFOs into quilt tops. The kitty blocks are easy to make and easy to sew together. I have enough left to make several lap robes. I've got the kitty pattern somewhere I see if I can find it and post a link. I am feeling better but now my body just wants sleep. My goal is to finish at least half my UFOs this year without buying any new fabrics...but I already broke that goal hee hee.

    Beautiful! Looks like those cats are laying claim to that quilt and will not give it up without a fight. Hope you're feeling better.
