Winter Wonderland

It is a WINTER WONDERLAND out there this morning. I just lay in bed for a bit longer than usual - too snuggly to get up. Not one to laze around in bed much - I was up at 5:30 to see whether I was going to venture to spin class.  One look out the window and NOPE - it isn't worth moving all that snow to go to the gym.  I took the girls for a walk instead.

My pant leg came out of my boot and got cold and wet, Sammy had snow frozen in her paws and Sparky struggled on her arthritic legs in the deep snow. Oh yes - we were a rag tag group this morning, but we all survived - we got our exercise and we are happy!!!

I am HAPPY to report that I have found a home for our pet mats. BUT - we have a big job ahead of us.  The group wants LOTS of the pet mats - I think the number was over ONE HUNDRED!!!!   Yikes!  So here is a task for you. If you have OLD UNWANTED pillow cases - preferably a solid colour, but at this point - I don't care. I will take anything. And if you have scraps - scraps of fabric, scraps of batting - I will take anything. We are going to make those pet mats and make the kitties comfy!!!!

Here is the link to the tutorial on how to make the mats.   If you are interested in making some - great. If not, but you can help out with the pillowcases and scraps - great - we will make them. And if you don't want to participate - well that's OK too.

These are the pet mats that Maria made

It is my week to blog on QUILTSocial.   I just love playing around with these sewing machines.  I am learning so much - I hope you learn something from them as well. I am even undertaking things that I don't normally do - but projects are getting done and that is a great thing.

Oh dear - remember all those windows I had open yesterday for the Internet. Well - I haven't closed some of them yet and I think I am running out of memory (on the computer). I cannot get into my photo editing software. I think I might have to shut the computer down to clear the memory.

On that note - I am out of here for today. Will get those pictures up later.  

Ok - got the pictures up as soon as I closed all the windows.   And we cancelled our Monday sewing group - I will be sewing all day today. Got lots lined up!

Stay safe!

Have a great day!!!!



  1. Can I bring scraps and pillow cases to the free motion class at Sew Sisters or will that be too late???

  2. Aggie-G - OH YES - I will take the scraps whenever. I have an order for 100 of the cat beds. See you then.
