Slow Sunday Stitching--Cats Faces

 I've got a much later start on Slow Sunday Stitching today than I planned. See lots of great stuff on Kathy''s Quilts Blog.
There was some necessary reshuffling of stuff in the sewing room first, as the mess was becoming completely untenable.  I cleared some space to set up the light box and trace the faces for the Copy Cat block.

I have no idea why this looks so blurry, but the stitching commenced as soon as the tracing was done. 

I used perle cotton for the eyes and 6 strands of DMC embroidery thread for the nose and whiskers.  Once both cat faces are on, borders will be added and the pillow front quilted.  I'm running out of time to get things done before we depart for Sewtopia Orlando at the end of the month.  This challenge project has to be turned in upon checkin, so I need to have it all ready.  Better get myself organized--I'll get my suitcase laid out on the spare room bed and throw stuff in there as I think of it!

Looking very cute. Good luck getting it finished before you go!I recently was stitching on a project to finish just in time to throw it in the suitcase and take it with me on a trip. I feel the pressure with you! :)

Many years ago I made a Tessellating cats quilt and I remember putting all sorts of different faces on the cats... some smiling, some sleeping etc. The embroidery is so important!
