This month the Island Batik Ambassadors are having a Pumpkin Fest! First of all, who doesn't love pumpkins? Their size, their unique shapes, their colors are just too much fun!
I personally love pumpkins especially pumpkin lattes, pumpkin scones, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie (I think you get the idea). So I was delighted with this month's theme.
I used wonderful fabrics from Island Batik
that just scream pumpkin. Look at all these beautiful shades.
"Gibbs in the Pumpkin Patch."
Here is a closer view.
There is one other thing that is unique about this picture and that is Gibbs, my cat. Do you see that his left ear is tipped?
This is Gibbs and he is a feral cat. His left ear has been tipped which told me that he had been fixed as eartipping is an effective and universally accepted method to identify a spayed or neutered and vaccinated community cat. He just appeared in my neighborhood one day. I have been working with him for a year.
It has been very trying at times because he has been very slow to trust me, but he is slowly coming around.
I thought he would be a "Purrfect" addition to my Pumpkin Fest design as it would be just like him to be in the Pumpkin Patch at night under the full moon.
I haven't quilted this yet as I really like it and I want to make sure I quilt it the right way. Getting ready for International Quilt Market in Houston next week hasn't given me much time and I don't want to rush. So I will share when I do get it quilted later this year.
I hope you will share your favorite pumpkin treats and also tell me any stories about your kitties.
Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful fall!
