    I get such a kick out of your posts. All the critters. Collectables. Reader’s quilts. Following sports, off to church, making appointments with Rick. Thanks for letting us share in your life.

      I had to laugh when I read your cat’s name. It made me remember that my Grandmother never swore (at least like we think of swearing today). But when she was really upset she would say, “Mister Man”, with a heavy emphasis on the M’s, T, and N. Another generation….

      Enjoy your cat. We had one for 12 years. She came to us as what I call a “throw away kitty”, showing up at our house in the dead of winter when it was 20 degrees below zero. She became a beloved pet for the 12 years she owned us. When I had health problems, she was my nap buddy. Otherwise she loved just being with us, indoors and out, bringing those critter catches that so many cats like to proudly show off.

    HimMary, Love seeing Colton. Buddy “ helps” me sew, too. The little clothes are adorable and I love blue and yellow. My sewing room door is getting a kitty panel. It’s another DD🙀.
    Don’t forget to mention the little x’s by the ads.😃

    I have my mom’s tomato pincushion, including her pins. A special treasure.

    Speaking of ads–I have not been getting any ads for quite sometime.

    Mary, your sewing room wall hanging is great, and so is Marsha’s 9-Patch quilt. That Colton is adorable; I love watching cats sleep!

    Love your Sewing Room quilt. Did you save leaders and enders for the borders?

    Colton looks perfectly happy snoozing away on your table. He sure is a cute cat. Love his color. Betsy’s Closet is wonderful. My daughter’s name is Betsy…well, her nickname anyway. It has been a very long time since she wore little dresses, though. Sure is a cutie. And, the blue and yellow quilt is wonderful as well.

    Good NIght, All.

      Sue in OR -I cut everything from the same chosen set of fabrics so they all worked together –

    I have the dress pattern too but have not made it yet either. Love how the sewing room pattern looks on a door. You have such a good color style putting low volume plaids with brighter fabrics. Colton is such a beauty. Clicking ads has become a habit for me on your blog that when I read other blogs I wonder if I am suppose to be doing it too on theirs. So I just click on your ads. I hope you don’t tire yourself out too much setting up your weekend sale. I wish I was there to shop and socialize with you all.

      I actually think I finally gave my pattern away – I’ll have to buy it again. I had all the little buttons, too. Ugh

    Love the pictures of the quilts, but I love the picture of Colton better. So sweet.

    You’re Colton is like my Buddy. Buddy always sleeps belly up! This surprises me because we have a very active Maltese who could pounce on him at any time. But I guess they have worked out the rules between the two of them.
    We love our fur babies. So much entertainment and companionship from these little creatures.

    What more could we ask for-Colton, Betsy’s Closet, a Four-Patch, and a new pattern!

    Love the sewing room pattern. I made this several years ago and it’s one of my favorites!
