I know you would love to see lots of pictures from the workshop but of course I forgot to bring my camera. There is just so much you have to get ready for a workshop it's hard to remember everything. You can check out Kathy's blog Kathy's Quilts as she remembered her camera and I'm sure there will be lots of photos there. There might even be a group photo. If you see me in that photo and I'm holding a block you may notice that I sewed the wrong tail on my animal as I was hurrying to finish a block for the photo.
I chose to work on the pattern Cat Treats. This is what I managed to accomplish at the workshop. Two nice chocolate kitties made of brown stamped batiks and grey dots. My friend Wendy also worked on the Cat Treat pattern. She altered the pattern slightly to incorporate the fabrics from the cat bodies to their heads. I liked this alteration so I copied it of course.
And I did these since the workshop. I love the stripes and the men's wear light bits on these two.
And these two as well. The one on the right is representative of my cat Benni.
Here's a photo of Benni. Can you see the resemblance? I included the orange triangle to differentiate the head from the body, although Benni does have some orange spots on the back of his neck.
I bring my older, smaller machine with me to workshops, and also when I get together with friends to sew. I think I'll keep this project to work on when we next get together. There are 6 more cats to sew and 12 fishbones each with a lot of little pieces. I wonder how long it will take me to finish it. I'm linking up late to Main Crush Monday held at Beth's Blog and on Wednesday to Let's Bee Social at Lorna's Blog.
