Kitty, Kitty.

A friend of a friend gave me some cats recently. They were barn cats that were given to her by a family that was moving away in hopes that she could find good homes for them. Apparently her acreage has become the muster point for all kinds of animals that, for one reason or another, need new homes. The managery includes dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens ducks, llamas, an ostritch, donkeys, sheep… I forget what else.

Both of the cats were very shy at first but have now warmed up to us and have become a helpful part of the farm. They are very good at keeping the mouse population in check.

They really didn’t want to have their pictures taken. They just wanted to play.

I wanted to call them both Kitty so that when I was looking for them I could just call out; “Hereeee, Kitty, Kitty !” and there wouldn’t be any confusion.

Anyways, I wanted to make a little something for the friend of the friend …

so I made her this kitty potholder. It measures about 8.5″ and I hope she likes it !

The block is from Amy Friend’s lovely book, “Intentional Piecing”

The fabrics are scraps left over from this quilt and this one  so I am linking up with Leanne and Nicky for Scraptastic Tuesday ( even though it’s Wednesday)

Thanks for having a look – hope your week is going well.

    LOVE your potholder! Also Amy’s new book – isn’t it great? I’ve lent it out and this reminds me to call for its return! We are smack in the middle of august dog days – maybe I’ll go and make a dog potholder!
