Another UFO can be checked off my list.
Home Is Where the Heart Is - a Pat Sloan pattern from the past. I chose the house block from her "Home Is . . ." sew-along to do as monthly Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks, plus the courthouse steps block with the cat silhouette. I did NOT do the rest of the blocks from this sew-along.
She offered both a cat silhouette and a dog silhouette, but of course since we had just lost Sammy (black & white tuxedo cat) after 19 years, it seemed appropriate to choose the cat. Also note the lovely quilting texture. The ladies at The Pin Cushion always choose quilting designs and thread perfectly. I absolutely LOVE the hearts swirling through this one.
Binding is a green and blue print from the stash, and the backing was a grey and white wide backing that I've used before.
I haven't added a hanging sleeve to this one yet, so the clothespins are holding this wall hanging onto another one behind it. I'm thinking it will look good hanging at the bottom of the basement steps, over my old trunk, next to my sewing room doorway.
So - "recuperation" binding project #2 (of 5) is done. I worked on project budgets for about an hour this morning, paid bills, and now it's time to sit with my leg up again, and an ice pack over the incision. Binding project #3 will begin.
