The folks at the cat shelter just asked me to design a poster for the next fundraiser. They need to raise money to help pay for very expensive eye drops for the cats when they get infections. So the shelter just sent me over 20 pictures with of cats with bleeding eyes!! Fantastic!
In sewing news, I was very behind in a wedding quilt i was commissioned for back in April, for a May 28th wedding. I thought I could finished it in time, and then I was a few weeks behind, and then June 6th I started a new job, so I only had weekends to work on it.
I felt soooooo bad, but the couple, Heather and Aaron were SO understanding, and happy for me to start my job, they were cool about it.
This was a UNIQUE project for me, it was the Bride's idea to have a wedding quilt made that reflected both her and her husbands' personalities. They wanted this to to be passed down to their children and grand children. So they gave me a list of about 10-15 different things the quilt should include. (Cats, cherries, jewelry, trees, Hello Kitty, music, Disney, Jean Harlow, state birds, cupcakes and polka dots!!) She even included some clothing from her Great Aunt, so it was all very meaningful to them. :-)
My favorite part was adding a large applique "N" for their last name. (and all the Hello Kitty stuff of course!)
