Lily – 3 Years Later

Lily - Three Years Later

This Lily, my sister and her hubby’s sweet kitty.

You may remember Lily from our big fundraiser from November 2011. She was rescued by Stephanie & Richard and she was obviously injured.

The vet discovered Lily had been shot and that she needed to have her leg amputated. It was an expensive procedure, but she needed it to save her life, and with the help of the online community, we raised enough money to cover the cost. Many, many people shared generously.

Lily - Three Years Later

She’s doing fantastically now and is Queen Kitty of the house with a brother kitty (Owen) and sister kitty (Miranda) in the house.

Thanks to Richard for the photos of Lily and to Michelle Thompson for reminding me that I hadn’t shared an update for a while!

Read all about Lily’s journey.

DIY Kitty Vending Machine

We’re a bit busy around here this week getting ready for back to school and all the things it entails, but I do have one small, fun thing to share: 10 seconds of cat video!

This is our newest family member, Rose (adopted at the end of March this year), fetching a treat for herself. She gets treats every day to help with her shedding, and she can gobble up her entire ration in about 2 seconds and come out wanting more!

I found this on Pinterest and unlike most projects I’ve pinned, I actually made this one! Rose is a treat gobbler, so we thought anything that would slow her down would be a good thing.

I was able to find a blog that mentioned the craft, but not one that credits who came up with it.

 

This month, ALL photos of projects made from Sewhooked patterns, including Paper Piecing Vintage, shared with the Sewhooked flickr group will be entered to win a copy of Jack Leaves The Light On!

Have a great weekend! I’ll be back full-swing soon!

Achieve!

One Achievement Hunter cushion, ready to live in the dorm!Both of my kids and the hubby are big fans of all things Rooster Teeth and I mentioned recently that I worked on some cosplay stuff for my two teenagers for RTX.

My daughter really wanted an Achievement Hunter cushion to take back to school when she moves into the dorm for her second year at university this fall and I had a pillow form just waiting, so yesterday, I knuckled down and got it done! Achievement Hunter Cushion in progress I started by trying to figure this out using my favorite method of paper piecing. After about 20 minutes, it was quite clear that it would take me much longer to design it than it would to stitch it.

Finally, I threw in the proverbial towel and decided to go outside of my comfort zone and try applique.

First, I printed the Achievement Hunter symbol on the paper side of lightweight fusible webbing. I ironed that on to the green fabric and then very, very carefully cut out the shapes I needed, being careful to preserve the negative space.

I ironed the star on first, and then used the negative space pieces so I could get the circle places correct. Then, I ironed the whole shebang. So far, so good! After ironing, I stitched around with monofilament thread for extra security. I used a tear-away stabilizer on the back, which really helped keep things nice and flat while stitching.

The cushion cover was completed using an envelope style (two hemmed piecing overlap on the back) and then inserting a pre-made pillow form.¬†Made with a 16″ pillow form. The center block is 12″ (12 1/2″ with seam allowance) and the green border are 2″ (2 1/2″).

I am happy and the daughter is VERY happy, so yay!
