Adieu Blue!!

Still have a bunch of stuff that I want to get done before the end of the month, but for once I am lucky and have Sunday and Tuesday off. 
And high hopes.
My blue blocks are done though and I am happy!


 And drum roll please!!
Wasn't sure if I was going to get this one finished on time or not but I did.


It is my first Smitten Kitten from Sew Fresh Quilts. Haven't decided exactly how many blocks I will do in this one. These will be 12" blocks.

Now, I need to spend the rest of my time finishing the pie!
It is layered and basted and it will be quilted very simply, so hopefully I will have a real live finish this month.

You can tell that I did lots of pressing seams today. Witt decided to sit right under my feet.


I always have this fear that one day I will drop the iron on his head or a can of spray starch. Obviously, he does not seem to be worried about that. He doesn't even look up when I spray the starch any more.

Oh Yeah!
It is National Cake Day today.
I think that should be on my list of things to do today!
 I have been trying to get back to behaving with my eating.
Not a good thing to think about!!! 
 Don't think about cake!!!!!
 L,A-

I love all your blocks, Alice! And I love Witt too because he looks like Alfalfa. But Alfie stays on top of my tables where he can supervise the goings-on. Hope all is well with you - glad you’re getting some time off!

Charming blue blocks! Love the kitty one! Need. ;-)
My babes hate anything in a spray can so as soon as I start out they fly poor Boots sliding all over. Too funny. He does not like any floors but carpeted ones.
Enjoy the rest of the day!
