cousins pillows

here are the pillows I made for my cousin
to go with the lap quilt
there were 6 panels so I made 3 pillows
with the cats on front and back
here is front...........

and back of the blue pillow

then front...........

and back of green one


and back of brown one.
the cats dont know what to make of all these cats
Dunkin arches up like they are real
it is so funny.
nobody else can share his
Mamas love

little brat!

anyway, I am plugging along........for Saturday
so far I have the birthday card (almost forgot that)
the small rose plant
a frame with 60 of our childhood memories done in different fonts
3 pillows
and hopefully soon the FINISHED cat lap quilt

I decided to leave the squares on the edge and just bind it in pink
hope that was not a bad decision
last night got it layered
now to quilt and bind and wash

THEN on to the cooking on Fri
I think I will make a pasta salad that the family
all loves
and a pumpkin cake that was her mothers recipe

hoping to have a fun time

will be a weird day on Sat
we start out seeing our daughter from TN 
at the funeral of my husbands uncle
then spending a little time with family there

later at night the surprise 60th birthday party

going from sad to happy.........
just hope all turns out well

Oooh those pillows are so adorable--you had a great idea there. Sorry about your loss, Dawn; at least you will have a nice get-together afterwards to dry those tears a bit...hugs Julierose

The pillows are cute. Saturday will be interesting to say the least.
