Poshest Moggies in Town

As I said, these red scraps are going a long way.  This will be the cats new mat, as soon as it's bound.

 I decided, that as it was for the cats, I could try out one of the stitches on the machine.  I'm so glad I did, I liked it.
 It's the serpentine stitch, and has just the right length of curve.
 I do hope the male moggies won't mind the pretty backing fabric.
 Then came this.  I did think mug rug when I made it, but I think Daniel will end up using it as a pot stand, which is OK too.
The serpentine stitch was back in use, and more red scraps for the back.

I have one more the same to make of these, but then I really must get to binding them all so they can be used.  After all the mulling over colours, I think it will be safer to stick with black for the binding, it was the only way I could think of matching the backs and fronts.  That means I will have to order some more black.

Seems like one can never use up scraps without buying more stuff and then creating more scraps!

Like the wavy stitch. That could in handy for lots of things.
