A Skinny Gizzy Quilt

It's a VERY good day to be a New England Sports fan. The guys named Pat beat the Dolphins (sorry Daisy), and the Red Sox are going to the World Series! Wow! Wow! Wow!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mom made me another quilt, twice as big as the last "table quilt." It's the size of half an ordinary Gizzy. I call it a Skinny Gizzy. This one has pieces that many cats may recognize from their quilts... I see pieces from Mr Zenith, Parker, Charlemagne, Samantha, Beau, Marie, Freya, Daisy Mae Maus, Speedy, Daisy, Kimiko and Kona's quilts.

Here's the back. I love it. It's really funky.
And here I am trying it out. As you can see, it is just the right size. It's sitting on a stack of fabric Mom has to cut and iron.
Mom's feeling poorly. She keeps honking. She says her nose is running, but every time I look at her, it's right on her face where it belongs.

The Big Thing comes from Boston, so he is very glad the Socks of Red are going further. Well, we thinks that is what he said.

Anyway, he seems happy.

Dat's a better sized one!! Sorry to hear your mom is feeling poorly. Tell her to warm up the bed, grab a hot drink and you girls snuggle up.

It's the season for germy germs there. But a honky nose means that moms body is fighty those germy beasts.

I like the photo of you on your new quilt, and it is lovely that is made up of bits from all your friends.

Sorry about your mom and her running honking nose. There seems to be a lot of that with moms these days.

The Pats are great this year. We Redskins fans are preparing to get creamed this coming Sunday.

Millie, Your Mom sure is nice to make you such a beautiful quilt. Looks good to me. Mom should make one for my Missy, the little Shih Tzu. Maybe for Christmas. I am so sorry you Mom is sick, that's too bad, you take good care of her. I am also very haPPy the Red Socks won. Our phone kept ringing and I couldn't sleep so I turned on the tv to watch them win.
Take care of your Mom. Love

Excellent art direction.

I love the fabric on the back of that. The quilt idea incorporating all the other gizzy fabrics into it is such a good idea. Memories...

Samantha & Tigger said...
