Sorry. I couldn't resist.
I also couldn't resist the google eyes. Even though I suspect they'll have a life expectancy of about 3 minutes once in the hands paws of a cat. Next time I'll be more practical and use felt or fabric paint. This particular guy was made for a friend's new kitten, but considering that Finn was practically scaling the bookcase to get to it, I'm sure there will be more in my future.
I made it up as I went using a small scrap of home dec fabric and velcro at the top closure so more catnip could be added, or the feather replaced as needed. It can't get much simpler than that!

Still at it.
 I'm trying hard not to feel like a failure at my first quilt along - I have been injured after all - but, I kind-of feel like failure. At least in terms of being able to stay on schedule.
I have been slowly working away on them when I'm able, and am quite pleased to say that I'm down to my last one! I finished up block 12 today (too late to photograph) and now all that's left is block 7. (I know, out of order, but all those equilateral triangles have me a bit freaked out!)
