Here Kitty,Kitty,Kitty,Kitty!

I just joined my first crazy quilting round robin, the theme is cats & even tho I & most of my family are horribly allergic to the furry little monsters they are still cut & fun to watch!
This is my 1st nekkid block for the RR.I will be making another one soon, which I'll post when I get it done. I don't have much in the way of embellishments to put in the baggie that goes with it, but I can't wait to see how they come back!I'm very excited! I hope everyone else is too. this is going to be fun!

I just received this picture of my mother, taken at the old town art fair in the 1970's.
My god! how young she looks! I wonder if she knows she is beautiful?
this is the way I remember her most, from my childhood. big floppy hat & her big floppy purse, beads, fringe & sandals. holding her pinkie or her belt loop, to cross streets, to get there. We would go to the various art fairs, in & around Chicago In the summertime, we'd look & dance, eat art fair food, & gab with friends. My favorite was always the Lincoln street art fair, they would close off Lincoln ave. between Beldon & Webster & throw the party of the year! there were buskers (people playing music behind their hats), wonderful art, face painting, water balloon fights in OZ park, & a band at either end of the street . We the children were allowed to run amok & the theater company would hold short attention span theater for the littles.

This is my mom today, still a free spirit!
