Nap Time!

Quilting has always traditionally been a craft for using up scraps of cloth. My wonderful MIL ("Granny") was a master of creating beautiful quilts from leftover pieces of cloth. I could look at one of her quilts and be reminded of the many beautiful dresses she had sewn for my daughters and nieces. Penny Black's challenge this week calls for patch work and so I made one of "Granny's Quilts" ("hand stitched") for my sweet little PB kitty. The squares are dry embossed so they are puffy and fluffy and just right for a nap. Ahh, I think a nap is a good idea -- see you all later!
Other stuff: Martha Stewart border punch, McGill Deckle square punch, Stampabilities, and Hero Arts stamps for accompaniment. Pop Dots, toothpick, gold pen, ribbon
