RSC 2014 - almost there!

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and now looking ahead to 2015.

The time is here for our last link up for RSC2014 and I have not quite
finished sewing all my cats together, we had a busier than anticipated Christmas and
a visitor from Australia, however one half is put together
so I can post a photo of that, the remaining cats are
sitting underneath hence the slightly wonky

Alley Cats
I have good intentions of having this all complete for a post 1st January 2015.
One or two of the ears are slightly "chewed" at the top but as alley cats sometimes
get into scraps whilst they're out on the tiles at night I'm putting the missed points down to that!

Apart from working on the quilt over the next few days I hope to put in a day just working out finishes, 
new projects, quilt alongs etc. for the New Year so I guess I could fill up a whole rayon this.
 Tidying bits of the blog is also on the agenda.

This dahlia was a put in the front garden bed around 6 weeks ago as a single tuber and it's
a stunner. It measures just over 7" across and there are another six buds waiting in
the wings. I'm thrilled with it although I hadn't anticipated the depth of colour,
it looked more peachy on the label.

Time now to link and wave goodbye to
Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2014
and all the lovely projects on show.

 Happy Quilting

Your kitties look great!!! What a neat quilt that will be.

I love Dahlias. My neighbor planted them one year and gave me a bouquet at the end of the season before the first frost.

Kitties kitties everywhere! They are looking amazing! Do you have your own real cats?

Ann said...

It's always a treat to see your gorgeous flowers! The cats look charming together with their many different fabrics.
Happy New Year.

I love your kitty cats, they all turned out nicely, chewed ears and all.

Have a very happy New Year.

Just love your kitties!!! It has been fun to watch the litter grow over the past year of the RSC. What a great idea and a wonderful quilt! Thanks for sharing!

That dahlia is such a stunner you could have claimed it was a Philip Jacobs print. And I'm all for clipping ears and whiskers if it will keep those cats in line.

Fabulous feline almost finish! Love your cats - and maybe they are already sewn into the final quilt top. Working on last minute 2014 tops myself to beef up my finishes as well...

That Dahlia is beautiful. I never liked them as a child, but now I fully appreciate the beauty of them. Have you visited Dahlia Haven up Silverdale way?
