Yes, I'm A Liar

Sew & Tell Friday
 
But I just couldn't resist. I know for every swap I've been in I specifically say "no pink, no cutesy, please." And here we have a pink background (very sweet Japanese print) and Kitty Cucumber. But you see, about 20 years ago when I lived in Seattle, there was a fun stationery shop on the "Ave" (near the University of Washington) that had great pop-up cards and Kitty Cucumber items. I have ornaments and gift tags and paper dolls and some fun little games and even a tin to keep it all in.

Yes, it's a Kitty Cucumber Collection. So, when my LQS got in this Kitty Cucmber fabric, I couldn't resist making just a little something out of the reliable D9P block. My husband says we can even hang it in our room, next to the embroidered kitties my mother made me when I was born. Yes, I am a liar. Please forgive me.

Lots more going on this week sewing-wise: finishing up some projects from 2009, starting some swap projects. And then, of course, more snow (we have 37 inches so far this winter!) changes the daily routine a bit. For more Sew & Tell, click here! Today is the Secret Gift Edition! (I neglected to take pics of most of my gifts :( )

Gratitudes
  • We're all warm, even with a HIGH of -8!
  • The swaps are gearing up--yay!
  • We're all home together tonight--movie night!

So cutesy! (sorry, couldn't resist) This is darling, and there are exceptions to all of our hard fast rules, just ask my kids.

Wish I had a dollar for every time I have said that! I think I am finally at the point where I can accept that some quilts take me beyond the comfort zone.

There is a place for pink, in small amounts, right next to the purple!!! Love that quilt!

Look at those kitties. So cute! I'm not usually a pink or cutesie fan either, but every once in a while we all need a little cute.

Oh, but who wouldn't go for those little kitties! There's always an exception that proves the rule!

Very cute. It really looks good in the D9P block.

You certainly have a lot of snow! Ours is nothing in comparison. Glad it's giving you more sewing time. This quilt is cute.

I DO like pink. Not so much cutesy, but this just brings a smile. A great thing for a very cold, snowy day.

Really lovely quilt. My daughter would so love those kitties. I do remember you saying you don't like pink. I even made a note for PIF purposes ;-)) We are entitled to change our minds! Thanks for sharing.

Yes I can see why you couldn't resist especially when it goes back to a childhood collection.
