Saturday in red....

I finally found the sewing machine this morning after being home from vacation for a couple of days. I really need to clean out/clean up the sewing area... but that will start tomorrow while the kids go to Grandma's house for a few days. I'd show a photo.. but I'd scare you all away! Maybe you'll see the before with an after photo sometime in the next week... assuming I don't disappear in there never to be seen again!

I did manage to make one red squared away block this morning... photo by Emily.

I also found a panel that makes a cat stuffed animal while digging in the reds... and somehow Emily and I started making it. The top of the cat and bottom of the cat pillow are sewn together...but we took a break for lunch. The head and ears and bow and ball still need stitching and attaching and of course... the turning, stuffing and hand stitching closed.

Linking up to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge with a little red today. Head on over and see what other red projects are popping up.

We all have to buckle down and clean that sewing space now and then! I've been putting mine off, too. Glad you found some red, though - your block looks great!
