The CAT IS OUT OF THE BAG! Stephanie, you are my CELEBRATION today!


Sometimes I am simply speechless and Noah looks closely at my face knowing that I have tears in my eyes.....TEARS OF GRATITUDE AND JOY!!!!

Stephanie has gone above and beyond the CATty request to create a Monet block for my children's quilt...She created a bag to match with golden butterflies!

......and it is going to sound silly but a favorite detail of the gift is the button on the zipper-pull that reminds me of a lily pad...The care to detail speaks of the caring person she is!!!!!! 

She and Lynn and Caroll did the cat blocks for a personal assignment they are doing together with design and color, to be  the recipient means so much!  My litter of kitty blocks is nearly complete!!! WAHOO!!!!


Kitties coming and going, to me and to the kids...


I just had to place Miss Monet on a sitting rock in my backyard  bordering the pond! Stephanie has posted a wonderful note on the process of creating this lovely piece and I encourage you to go and enjoy the inspiration.  Her blog is posted below.  This cat block is amazing in that her beading work is mond boggling how time consuming it appears and such a fun embellishment.  I now realize how time consuming a little block can be and I am so grateful that no longer is a quilt measured by its size but its detail and heart sewn into it.   

I hope you have enjoyed this fun-ness...Now head on over to visit Stephanie at her blog, http://peasinapod.typepad.com/ to CELEBRATE HER!!!!!

And......

HAPPY SATURDAY! 

Love, Em

Em, I am so happy you liked it! It was fun to make. Giving makes me feel good, especially when the recipient is so lovely as yourself. I can't wait to see how the blocks come together in this quilt and to see how you quilt it! Enjoy the bag! :-)
