Black Cat Crossing Continues....MeOwZa!

I came home today to find Jaxson 
sitting and staring unblinkingly out the window...
deep in thought...

Oh little furry friend...
what is on your mind, I asked?

Thru feline telepathy...
his answer came.


(his grammar could use some work, but thank goodness this mouse speaks 'cat')

My reply....

Time to Pull The Plug

To my most awesome followers...
Taking a wee break...
How my heart will ache...
But I fear...
tho she's hung on for the last year...
I'm about to lose my little Red friend.


Obviously she's still hanging on...
since I'm able to post this blog tonight.
Each time I try to bring her to life...
I hold my breath and cross my fingers.
One of these times...
there will be no reviving her.

So rather than stress...
I'll just take a rest...
until it's time...
for Black Cats to Cross the line...
by then I hope to have a new friend
to take little Red's place.

for the full schedule!
In lieu of flowers
please just send Good Thoughts.

Rush Hour Blog Hop

Welcome to my day on the
Rush Hour Blog Hop.
Such an appropriate hop for me...
I love everything Black, White & Red...
and I excel at
RUSH!

These days it seems we are always Rushing.
The Spouse and I have just finished a 3 day quilt show
(which of course included days and weeks of prep, packing & unpacking...twice)
To say we are exhausted is an understatement.
On Monday we will be rushing to unload the trailer and rearrange the shop...
ahhh...the glorious life of a quilt shop mom and pop.  

The theme for this years Jacksonville QuiltFest was
"It's Not All Black & White"
Members of the hosting guild hung quilts outside the entrance to the show.
What a wonderful surprise to find one of my designs hanging up.
My friend Donna Garnet made this in a class I taught.
Seems appropriate to share it here.


I started to make a sample for the show that would double as my entry here today.
(the two birds...one stone idea....)
Somehow the time got away from me as it normally does...
the sample was never finished...
which is probably just as well...
since I realized I'd included an extra color or two to boot....
so rather than RUSH to finish...
(I will be making placemats for our kitchen re-do)
I decided to fall back on one of my original thoughts.

I managed to eek out a few hours on Sunday
to make a cute little mug rug for the hop.
I love shapes that are odd...


I used the "Mini Hex N More" from JayBird Quilts
to form the twirly coffee cups
(my fav fab from the Rush Hour line from StudioE).


I thought it would be fun to include part of the
selvage so I would always remember the fabric used...
especially when there is such a cool looking logo.


Many moons ago when this hop was announced...
I immediately went out and found the perfect coffee cup.
I knew I would make a mug rug even then.
Love the little retro red button....
it will balance the perfect cookie...
to go along with my 'skinny yarn latte'!


Thanks again to the amazing Madam Samm 
and the equally astounding Carol for cheering us on!

Be sure to Rush now and visit the other amazing bloggers scheduled for today.
You don't want to miss out.
