Cat Pad

I haven't taken photos of the baby quilt yet, but I will.

I did finish this cat pad though. Using the cat basket as a template, I cut out two pieces of fabric and batting and sewed them together, leaving a small gap to turn through. I had this pinned and ready for the hand sewing when Kashka decided she would try it out. At least I know it meets with her approval. I hand stitched it together on Tuesday and have plans to make some more. Not only is it good for the basket, but they are great for putting where she regularly sits. Hopefully, it should help to keep the furniture clean and fur free.

Next time I may put some random stitches in it to highlight the padding. We also thought, if we could find the appropriate fabric, we could do some for dog baskets too.

I finally finished my last ATC to go to Australia. Unfortunately, I forget to take a photo before I put it in the envelope. Never mind, just one of those things.

I have almost finished the items for the swap for this month on Exchange heaven. The cross stitch and machine stitching is complete. I just need to do the hand sewing to finish them.
I have decided to have a break next month as I need to catch up with some other exchanges and RR's.

Hopefully I can get these ticked of the list over the next week.

This cat pad is so sweet! The fabric is cute! I made a pad for our cat too. She didn't like it in the beginning, but now it is her favorite place to sleep!

What a great idea! I'd like to make a few of those and hopefully keep our cats and dogs for that matter OFF THE BEDS!

Awww, that fabric is so cute! Aren't cats funny the way they inspect anything new? Our Topsy jumped up on to my new washing machine within minutes of the delivery man driving away!
