Friday Night Sew-In Results

I'm afraid the new photo looks a lot like the old one.  Besides making February blocks for the Block Lotto–which I cannot yet share–it was more of the same, as I returned to the quilting of the border of this quilt.

More of the same 

It seems I mis-remembered how much was left to do ... and so my optimistic plan to be making some scrappy binding by the end of the night was was, well, a little too optimistic, even with the moral support of Grace Hopper, the material cat.

Grace offers moral supportToday the sky is dull and gray and filled with dark, low clouds. With a weather forecast of lots of much-needed rain on the way, I've decided that it's a good day to make soup and stay in the studio and re-aquaint myself with the little purple machine that could.

How did your Friday Night Sew-in go?

Late afternoon update 

I have persevered and the end is in sight. Johnny Be Good recently came downstairs to provide second shift support cat duty.  He's still a little sleepy–both he and his sister have spent most the day cat-napping upstairs.  Now, I think, they've come down for an early dinner ... but I am determined to finish the quilting before I stop to cook (or feed them).

Is there anything better than a calico cat sitting on top of a calico scrap quilt? How cute!

Hi Sophie, just popping in from the FNSI linky... What a gorgeous quilt you are making, I cannot imagine the work involved in it... I see that the cat approves!
