Here Kitty, Kitty…A Black Cat Crossing Tale (with giveaway)

Once upon a time, there was a crazy cat lady who quilted….yes, that’s me, five cats in the house and one stray we’re feeding.  Trolling the interwebs, I found an announcement by a wonderful lady named Madam Samm that a very good witch named Wicked Wendy was cheering a blog hop devoted to Black Cats!  Well, what kind of quilting cat lady would I be if I didn’t hop along?

So I shopped and I pieced and I played with a pattern from Jennifer at Sew Hooked.  (I wanted to buy the whole Moda line but I did have to remember the other exciting events of the month…my dear daughter had a birthday yesterday!)   I was all set to take pictures of my finished project when the battery died in my camera.  So,  I settled for night shots with Grumpy Pumpkin.
