100th Post!!!!

I've managed to keep this blogging thing going! I really do love it though, this on-line journal has been so good for my creativity. I really love this quilting community. So thanks for all your comments, suggestions, and encouragement!

I just received my first fabric postcards in the mail! Aren't they great! Thanks Cynthia and Sewnut!


As I've mentioned before, I am participating in Tonya's on-line classroom. Here is one of the things I am working on. It's a Halloween inspired quilt. When you don't have a pattern, you can get a bit carried away! Mine started with black cats:


Then I got to doodling, I thought I could make some cat blocks, and then wouldn't it be great if their tails could cross the 't's:


Oh boy! What did I get myself into? Will it all come together?


After a bit of cursing, and a dash of self-doubt, I present Black Cats Staring!


It still needs a bit of work: eyes, border, a web for my spider....but I think I will rest now.
