Poor Kitty

Recently I read on someones blog that Love Quilts (normally a US site) were wanting squares for a quilt to be made for a young lady in the UK. I went to look and contacted the lady who was dealing with it over here who said thanks and told me to register at the US site for now as things were not up and running over here.

Well you know how it is when you are busy and I was getting things together to go in hospital so I grabbed my fabric (yes I had checked what was required) 13 x 13 inches of white aida, found a suitable design no more than 9 x 9 inches, kitted it up and put it in my bag to take with me. Since I came home along with other bits and bobs kitty has been taking shape and today she was finished and thilled with the results I thought it was time I registered.

Oooops, now I done several things for charity in the past but never before have I had to say what chart I wish to do, where it is to be found etc BEFORE I START, and apparently I should have done :o(

I have sent a picture of poor kitty to the lady in the UK to see if she would still like her but poor kitty might be homeless and all because I was in too much of a rush to do things the correct way. Oh well I am sure AQP or one of the other charities out there will find a home for her if shes not wanted but I had stitched her with this particular young lady in mind (her fave colour being purple hence the purple wool) so I would like her to go to the home she was made for.

Now Im onto part 4 of gigi, and I will let you know when I hear from the nice lady if kitty has a home or not.

At least your heart was in the right place! Hopefully the kitty finds a new home. It's beautiful!

Thanks for posting this - I've decided to do my first square for Love Quilts too so as soon as I saw this post I emailed them asap. I somehow missed that part when I was reading the rules.

Hi Helen what a lovely kitty I nearly signed up on the same site then realised you had to give the chart details before hand which I thought a bit odd
