I spent the last few months working on selling off some of my wool stash and was able to clear my studio floor of fleece filled bundles. :) As with most of my artistic ventures, I cannot start anything new without an organized work space. Clutter can stop me in my tracks. My reward for all of the hard work in the studio was this nifty quilt kit starring none other than -- the Grinch. Did you ever watch "Halloween is Grinch Night"? It was one of my son's favorite Halloween movies. The Grinch was a real naughty character. My son loved him. Kind of scary really! LOL I have decided to jump back into quilting with this kit. Of course a hundred other projects are in the wings, but this one was too darling to pass up!
Hubby and I went shopping, and this darling "Hello Kitty" mug made its way to our home. It makes me think of our black cat, Mew. I would always hold her up to the TV when the "Hello Kitty" balloon was shown on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Funny enough, Mew never seemed interested. Never the less, I tried every year, and it became a Thanksgiving tradition handed down to the new Fuzzies... with the same lack of interest. *sigh*
Of course, I nearly flipped at Christmastime when seeing the Janome RED "Hello Kitty" sewing machine. I know, a plastic machine??? But it was just to darn cute to pass up! It will not be used on the Grinch quilt, but I will piece a few smaller items on it to test it out. The machine has received various favorable reviews. It will be coming out for a test run this month, and I will share my thoughts. Great to see some products to encourage young people (and adults) to sew. :)
