BLACK CAT CROSSING

Black Cat Crossing

                                             

If three cats take a stroll along the East River does that qualify then to join a blog hop ? 

Welcome to Black Cat Crossing the spooktacular Halloween hop where ghostly creativity shines. And keeping the brew stirred is Wicked Wendy and Mdm Samm

 I wanted to stitch this paper pieced cat pattern by Artisana for a long time. 

My plan was to use this as a table runner but after seeing it in nature I might have to add a quilt sleeve.


A young lady I know worked with children last summer and they drew skateboarding cats. A perfect pattern for a cat on the move.

 She gets a new bag to carry her art supplies.            




A spooky cat  mug mat with wide eyes will keep you alert.

I became the owner this summer of this lovely mat which was too cute not to include. My sister does lovely stitching doesn't she ? I am not that fond of bugs but this one has been very peaceful since she arrived home with me.

I am not supposed to be starting new projects but when I saw this sweet pillow in the latest issue of Quilters Connection I could not resist.  I thought the cushion is lovely, I could use up Halloween scraps and better yet I could easily have it finished for the hop.

That was much too cute to just make a pillow and I had a basket of scraps and who needs to finish on time anyway. So I have another UFO (must be consuming too much witches brew)

   So pour a cup of brew and have a visit with today's other hoppers. I am lucky enough to have Girl Guide cookies for my sweet snack.

  38. Your three cats are certainly enough to qualify for this hop! My cat did complain however, that it is not a realistic picture and it must have been altered with Photoshop? She herself is a bit.....well, bigger round the middle? Loving the cat mug rug. Those eyes! And the bug rug is also amazing. Ah. They all look wonderful. Well done.

  49. What wonderful projects. You sure have been busy! I agree with you about your unfinished and expanded pillow project. It is too darn cute to be just a pillow. I can't wait to see how you finish yours (No pressure though!) because I know it's going to be awesome. Thanks for sharing your creations with us today,.

  50. Lots of wonderful projects! I vote for a sleeve on the pp cats; it's too cute to lay down and needs to be where everyone can see it. The quilt top is so cute and I know it was taking to you - that's why it took precedence over the UFOs! :)
