In a moment of having having fun, I made this little piece, known in some circles as a "quiltie" for a swap. I mailed it today to a young woman who likes skulls and pirate flags and Day of the Dead symbolism. This is not that. I hope she also has a sense of humor because I think the Laurel Burch cat is very funny. [The fabric is on the back as well].
Then I used by selvage technique to add borders. That's it, quick and dirty. It makes me smile. And I miss the talented Ms. Burch who died last year, much too young. She designed very special cats as well as other things.
The mid-70s are a surprise! Part of me remains in the 50s -- age, I mean, not decade of 20th century. It's a joy ride, new experiences land in my lap and I've become a better quilter, poet, writer than I expected. It's a rich life for a person never rich financially. Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
