First of all, the correct answer was 32", yes he is a big cat and his head was bent. I tried to measure him while he was laying on the bureau, but he thought I wanted to play and tried to eat the measuring tape.
So, the winner with the closest guess was Paulette!
The winner of the random number generator was #2 Tubilinha Tiacarminha!
You can choose a pattern or ebooklet from my ecrater site, link in the left hand column.
Email me with your choice and I will send it to you.
Congratulations! Look for another giveaway on Friday, something for the quilters.
This week I have been fighting off the flu, and the weather has been rainy, so it is a good time to relax inside and work on small projects.
I love Kathy Schmitz's designs and she has some free designs on her website that you can enjoy making. This one was for a tea towel, but I loved the design and wanted to make a pillow. I kept it simple and antiqued it, but the camera really didn't want to give me a good shot, and I had to use flash since it is dark out.
The pillow is tea stained muslim and stained again, by me, but it looks shiny in the photo. I forgot to add details to the body, that is what happens when you are sick and dense, lol.
Another design I found for free, this week is, Valentine hearts. I loved how the word love looked and had to try it. I made flat ornies out of mine, using two pieces of batting to fill the middle and just stitched the back on, leaving the edges raw. I over stained these, so I rinsed them out and re-dried them to lighten them back up. The pattern is by Cheryl Fall and can be found HERE. There are two others that you can do, as well and the actual pattern, that I didn't see until tonight. I found the design and now I see how they were actually done.
