For Wednesday


This past weekend I was on a cleaning spree 
And found these fleece socks in my overflowing sock drawer
So experimented
And came up with 8 outfits that I hope fit Wednesday


And these extra quilt blocks made a cute little cat quilt

Now to get them to the recipient.....

Do you do theme gifts

I love when a gift has a theme
Like snowmen
Isnt this an adorable cup?
Jacky is gonna fill it with hot chocolate and marshmallows for the grandkids.
Cute
 And the nose is 3d


She had an angel watching over her too
See? A QUILTING angel


She has a cat theme for her granddaughter
Cat cup
Cat socks


Cat bedsheets 


And cat pajamas
How fun!

Do those pjs come in my size?
Not Sure about the eyes on the boobies
Forget it.

Bad idea.....

Theme gifts can be fun to put together and fun to receive.

****UPDATE****
Dad went into the hospital yesterday
Having issues breathing
He has fluid around his heart 

Please say a prayer for him
This is his second time this year
The last time was on his birthday in Feb

Thanks

Monday


I wanted to sew Monday ....but
Hubs had other plans for me
Making meatloaf, making a spreadsheet of his medical expenses for the year etc.

I snuck away in the afternoon for a bit to Jackys house
This cute bag greeted me at the door




What?  GUESS WHO????
LOL
I mean I was scared
I ran past her to the sewing room
To see if I could pilfer some scraps

And hoping this fat butt would fit out the window if I couldnt get out the door....

I saw crayon rolls in process........





And saw some stars....
Wait did she knock me out?
Hmmmm
No .......
.no just some ornaments she was working on











And some
Adorable little yarn hat ornaments
Using paper towel cardboard
And yarn

Cool.......

At least someone was creative this Veterans Day!
Did You get to sew?

Wednesday working on a Friday

What? Am I ahead and working on next WEEKS project early?
Behind by two  days? 
Let me explain
My nieces think Auntie is a miracle worker....
One sweetie has a runt cat named Wednesday
She is a miracle really as she weighs under 2 lbs at a couple months old
She is always cold so my niece wants me to make her a coat
So the Auntie that I am pulled the softest yarn in my stash and asked the inevitable since I dont have Wednesday to measure as I go 

Give me dimensions!




She measured neck to tail
Around her belly
Around her head etc. 
So I am trying to picture this so she can
Get it on her easily
Maybe a velcro tab
Not sure

But so far made a few rows
Hoping to have something by the weekend for her
I do have a backup plan....i have a small tabletopper er I mean cat quilt  just for Wednesday and every day of the week
Lol do what you know right?


While I ponder the design 
Which by the way I have never designed anything in crochet so it should be interesting 
I decided to play in the scraps and clean up
Found some 5 inch tumblers
Hmmmm
Sewed some, cut some more



I now have another UFO

STARTED ON A FRIDAY
BECAUSE OF WEDNESDAY

DID YOU GET THAT???
LOL

I really need to retire this superwoman cape
Or let my nieces know I have no superpowers. Hee hee
