On of my daughters is involved in cat rescue. They spay and neuter stay cats by trapping them and eventually retuning them to their colonies. They also have regular feeding schedules for the colonies. I help out by offering some fund raising items to assist with vet bills and food.
I happened to see this really cute free cat pattern on a blog and decided I should make a runner to help out with one of their fundraisers.
You have to admit that this little bird insert in of the borders of the runner was just too cute to omit.
Now cats need whiskers, but this just didn't work out so well, so I pulled out all these itty bitty stitches and made a change.
And decided this was more like it. My 12wt thread whispers made more of a statement.
And the finished project. It will go up for auction in the next week on their fundraiser site.
However, everyone knows there are not only black cats. So another for a future fundraiser is in progress. Black cats, orange cats and grey cats.
And here they are, just ready to hand stitch the binding.

Cute blocks, I love the tiny hummingbird ;)ReplyDelete
I think that your Cat blocks are fabulous in each and every color! Because being a cat lover, I know that even though their coats may be one color and absolutely beautiful it is their personalities that truly define what that color should be. LOL. I also give you two thumbs up for helping raise money for the funds needed to help stray cats everywhere. Thank you for sharing and have a fantastic day!ReplyDelete
