Large Crazy Quilt Cat Dolls and Seam Embroidery

Here I am at 3 am.  Blogging and getting ready to stitch.  Is it Spring yet?  I sleep better in the Spring and Summer than I do this time of year.

My insomnia does pay off at times.  I finished up the stitching on my Purple Cat Doll yesterday:

If you look closely, especially at the top where the dark purple fabric is, you can see the outline of the cat.

And here are the seam embroidery closeup photos:

I'm keeping a Crazy Quilt Seam Treatment Inspiration Gallery page (at the top of my blog).  It's a quick reference for seam treatment ideas.  I was adding the newest photos to the bottom of the page but I've decided to add the new ones at the top.  That way, for anyone who follows my seam treatments, you don't have to keep scrolling down to the bottom to see what's new. 

I didn't get my cell phone pouches sewn up but I did pull the fabrics out for finishing them.  I'd like to get them sewn today.

And I did do a little straightening up in my room and I made a double batch of Pumpkin Muffins and a double batch of Banana Muffins.  I got the laundry done and I started stitching on this Pink and Green Cat Doll:

I'll be working on that momentarily.

The one other thing I did yesterday was to switch out my stitching thread basket.  I had a small one that I kept my threads in but they really didn't quite fit.  I decided to use my Garfield's basket to keep my threads in since my little kitties don't use it.  I don't know why.  Garfield's been gone 2 1/2 years now so I would have thought one of them would have taken it over but they didn't. 

Garfield was a big boy.  18 pounds at his healthiest!  So we had a good size basket for him.  Anyway, it's my thread basket now and it makes me think of him.  I like that.

I think it's a lovely tribute to Garfield to use his basket for your stitching supplies. I'm sure he would be happy.
