While I was home I did do a little stitching on my mom's old Viking machine. I made little Christmas cat quilts for my cousin's two cats, Monty and Mango (the banana fabric is for him). I can't believe I forgot to take a photo of the second one altogether! It was a free-pieced M surrounded by blue and white strips. I added some catnip in with the batting and the quilts were well tested by my cat, Flicka (who lives in Maine now with my mom), and my mom's cat, Lily, before they finally found their way to the Post Office.
Flicka is the one in the photo - a gorgeous ten-year-old calico who is part Maine Coon - and she received a pretty serious diagnosis while I was home, so I'm afraid it might have been the last time I will see her. I'm going to whip up a little catnip-filled quilt for her as soon as I can.
