Quiet days...

Thanks for all the input on my border option post...I'm putting together my Jacob's Ladder quilttop today and will post photos this weekend. The other quilt may wait a bit longer. I am giving it as a gift and decided to let them have the final decision on the border (I like both borders so.....)

While I was making up my mind I changed out a few small quilts on the wall...(my friend rachel made the button flowers!)

and pulled some reds for a new quilt....

and folded lots of fabrics to clear a walking path through the sewing-room....when I am pulling fabrics it is like bride dress sale day in the old Filene's basement, fabric is flying!

Goldie, Brownie and Dobby...

And here is a rare photo of all three of my cats together! I was outside trying to get a photo of the woodpecker who lives in the hollow tree in my backyard. I was in the kitchen when I saw him for the first time this summer (we hear him all the time!) The cats obviously thought something exciting was going to happen so they all followed...

What a cute mini-tumbler and I love the button flowers!
Better be careful--you may think that was why all of the cats were together, but maybe they are planning something. They are cunning, you know! ; )

That tumbler quilt and the reds you pulled look delish! It's fun to change out quilts, isn't it?
Love the family photo. Nice of them to herd themselves...God knows we can't make them do it :-)

Such a sweet mini tumbler quilt!! Love those reds too!!! Oooh! what are you about to create with those I wonder LOL!!! Just a quick question, the first red fabric on the Left (floral) which line is that print from? I've seen it used in a few different colourways and haven't seen it anywhere for sale! Your cats are delightful!!!

The tumbler quilt is adorable with the red border and yellow binding. Cats really keep us entertained. They are a curious bunch.
