It's Been Raining


Happily, I haven't had much need to go out into the rain, because it isn't as fun as this little kitten makes it look.  It was that plastic hair bonnet that made this transfer, which is from the same set as the kitten on the bicycle,  a "must stitch" block for my vintage embroidery quilt. I haven't seen one of these in years. Do ladies still use them? 


This is one of those rare blocks where I chose my colors in advance. I knew that I wanted a very light pink for the bonnet, a fairly dark pint for the umbrella handle, and a medium pink for the skirt and umbrella fabric. Then I needed cat and rain colors that would work with those. It does make things easier to know which flosses I'll be using, but I'm not sure if I'll stay that organized for every block.

I LOVE your kitty and her plastic bonnet! I don't know if those are still available anywhere or not, but they were awfully handy for a sudden downpour. Your kitty is so cute.
