When the day started, I was three months behind on the "Cats of a Different Color" quilt. I needed a brown cat for October:
and a green cat for November. November's color was supposed to be a bright green, but I'd already done a bright green cat earlier in the year. This time, I chose an olive green.
There was no "official" color for December, and so I took a look at the cats I already had and decided lavender was a good choice.
And now I have 12 cats for my quilt. Did you know that one of the collective nouns for a group of cats is a "glaring"? With that in mind, here's the whole glaring for my quilt:
Now I need to decide how to set it and choose some fabrics. That will have to wait because there are other finished groups of blocks ahead of the felines.

This morning I updated the button in my right side bar, but I selected my pattern long ago. This is the Happy Campers pattern from Sew 4 Fun available as a digital download on Craftsy.
"Now why did she choose that?" I can hear you asking. I'm considering how many blocks to make. I might make the blocks smaller and make more of them...perhaps two per month...or I might make them larger and make just 12. I'll decide when I do the first one.
For today, I'm going to continue on with my binding and my embroidery. Having spent the entire day in the sewing room yesterday, it seems like a good day for kitchen fun. For one thing, I'm going to indulge my inner sugar fiend and make the annual batch of Divinity, a candy I believe was perfectly named. After that...who knows. Kitchen or sewing? Kitchen or sewing? It's a difficult choice.
