Greetings gentle quilters, here’s wishing that the new year treats you well!

The delightful Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs is launching a new free-pattern-every-month that she’s calling the Snow Happy Hearts Club. It’s a series of ornaments, one a month that you can make featuring Anne’s super adorable designs. Check it out!

Myself I’ve been working hard on a couple of projects over the holidays… one is a super secret piecing project (that’s right, I said piecing believe it or not) that I will be able to reveal soon. The other is a new appliqué pattern featuring an animal that popped into my head one day and wouldn’t leave :) Stay tuned. also coming soon.

Update to Kitten Cavalcade:

Giselle, now called Corkie, has gone to live with Minnie! That’s right, Helen decided to get her kitten a kitten, and these buddies are now lifelong companions.

Gunther was adopted the same day by a nice family that I was lucky enough to meet down at the shelter. He’s now known as Milo.

We thought we were done for the season and packed everything up. However, on new Year’s Eve I received a call from the shelter that there was one more, very late little kitten that needed foster. I couldn’t get her off my mind, so the next day I went down there to see if they had found anyone yet. They had not, so I brought the tiny little black thing home with me.

It’s hard to get a photo of Molly… she’s a kitten in motion, a spunky, feisty little mighty mite.

Dana got this shot of her in a moment of repose.

Single kittens tend to treat human hands like other kittens and treat them accordingly, but we’re working on it and she is learning to be an exceedingly sweet kitty. She’s a total lap cat, and sleeps on our heads at night.

Until next time,
By Kay Mackenzie

    Such a cute little kitten!! I’d love to foster kittens too, but that will probably have to wait till my cat has gone to kitty heaven: she is such a scardy-cat and would probably have a nervous breakdown with little kittens running around here!! And I can’t wait to see the piecing project that you’ve been working on! :-) Hugs, H in Healdsburg
