.: feathers, penguins + fabric love :.

It's wine o'clock at chez Cat, so I thought I'd take the time to upload a few pics and share the last couple days sewing with you. 

First up is Lorena's finished feathers for her AusModBee feather-bed quilt.  As I type they are in the safe hands of Australia Post and winging their way south to Lorena in Sydney.

After a break of a couple of weeks, I was way too excited to get back to making a couple of x+ blocks.  The first one includes three of my absolute favourite fabric designers - Happy Zombie Monica Solorio-Snow (the orange/pink/green flowers, from Happy Mochi Yum Yum), Violet Craft (the orange/white flowers from Madrona Road) and Laurie Wisbrun (giraffes on green - I can't remember the name of this gorgeous line).

I also love the purple Paris map fabric, the architextures black/white text print, and the penguins.  Oh the penguins!!  They have newspaper print on their tummies - I ask you, what is not to love about that.

A briefcase-carrying penguin on blue made an appearance in my next block too, along with the fabulous Yuwa Live Life rulers and men fabrics (bought from Blije Olifantje on Etsy), Bonnie and Camille Bliss spots, Curly Pops orange/pink lines and Denyse Schmidt blue dots.

Here's a closer look at the 'men fabric' - my total favourite is the 'here's to you' champagne ... surprise!  

Tomorrow I am hoping to find time to sew up some cushions for the shop and for home.  Vee has been carrying the cushion-cover-sewing load for the shop these last few weeks, and we are just about out of cushion-cover-stock.  Look out tomorrow for pics of a big-butt-loving dog and a budgie-smuggler or two.  If you haven't seen these fab designs from Vee yet - do yourself a favour (as Molly Meldrum would say) and click across to our shop.

Here's to a sunny but cool weekend for everyone.  And cheers to you, if it's wine o'clock at your house too ;-D       xoxo cat
