Yay! I’ve finally finished the first of the “Cats and Quilts” patterns by Kitty and Me Designs!
I started this pattern last year, but then it got buried in my workbasket as I got busy with a totally awesome trip to Australia and New Zealand, which included a wedding:
The kitty and quilt stitching has been added to the stash that is destined for Pause 2 Help Paws, a group of crafters that donates hand-stitched items to raise funds to aid animal shelters.
If you’d like to stitch a little something for charity, don’t forget Canada Stitches – an international group of crafty volunteers that stitch premature infant quilts and cuddle cushions to be donated to children’s hospitals. Canada Stitches is hosting a Small Square Challenge – submit a small, 3 to 4 inch stitched square and be entered in their prize draw. The squares will be made into pillows, wall hangings and lap quilts to brighten someone’s day 🙂
