The Best Laid Plans....

With my tail between my legs I must confess that I missed ALL of my quilting deadlines last week! Remember how I said I wanted to have this done by October 1......
Well.....it's obviously not done....but I did get all the blocks finished! And why didn't I get my quilt done by my self imposed deadline? That's because this little one (Daisy Daffodil) needed oral surgery for a tooth root abscess.....
So, as you can imagine my mind was on other things. And I took this picture a few hours after she returned home. Aren't loopy, confused kitties absolutely adorable???!!! Oh, and if you were wondering, she's doing great and seems to feel better than ever now!

And do you remember my goal of having Hooterville done and dropping it off at the quilters last week? Well, that obviously didn't happen either. I accidentally left my tree blocks for the center of the quilt on the floor one night.....and I woke up to find that this little one (Cassi, a.k.a. Pooh Bear, a.k.a. Cassandra Sunflower).....
Had "gotten sick" all over my tree blocks! Ugh! But don't worry - I didn't take a picture of that! After much fretting and woe-is-me-ing I gently hand washed the blocks and was able to save them! But as you can imagine that caused some major delays in Hooterville.

Now, it's time to set some new deadlines and get these quilts DONE! Wish me luck!

Happy Sewing,
Jenny

What a funny face and I have one kitty who is always throwing up on things, so I keep my craft rooms closed;)

Just adore Millies closet and the Stars and Stripes would be great for the Wounded Warrior quilts. Great collections.
