Moo-berry {Sew Some Love}

Welcome to the Sew Some Love linkup!  Please link-up any post about a project you're sewing for charity.

Hey y'all. Christmas is less than a week away. Do you have your shopping done? More importantly, do you have your sewing project-gifts done? Yeah, me either.

I've been working on Christmas gifts and some finishes for CiL, but nothing I can show you right now. Instead, here are some cute photos of my boyfriend's new cat.

He's a two-year-old blue tabby from the animal shelter and we named him Moo.

Moo is the sweetest boy! He loves to be with his people, be carried, sleep on the bed, and nap on the desk while boyfriend is working.  He wrestles without ever using his claws or teeth and plays with his toys like a wild man.

From shelter cat to spoiled house-cat in just a month and I don't know who is happier about it, him or us :) Adopt, don't shop!

Covered in Love has been so blessed by donations from quilters, I want you all to see what each other have going on!  For purposes of the linky, I'm going to define "charity" really generally.  If you're sewing a quilt for you co-worker's mom with cancer or your friend's uncle who lost his home, that totally counts!  Anything you're sewing out of the goodness of your heart for someone outside you immediate circle of family and friends.

Some Quilt Charities:
Books and a Blanket - quilts for needy children in central Texas, promoting literacy
Covered in Love - quilts for mourning families
Jack's Basket - celebrating babies born with Down Syndrome
Kennel Quilts - small quilts for animals in need
Margaret's Hope Chest - several programs for children and adults
My Very Own Blanket - quilts for children in foster care
Ovarian Cancer Quilt Project - quilts auctioned to raise money for cancer research
Project Linus - quilts for children in the hospital
Quilts Beyond Borders -  quilts for poor children around the world
Quilts for Kids - quilts for abused and ill children
Quilts of Valor - quilts for veterans
Threading Hope - children and families in poverty and war torn countries
Victoria's Quilts - quilts for cancer patients
Wrap-a-Smile - quilts for children treated for cleft palate on medical missions
Wrap Them in Love - quilts for children

If you know of any that need added to the list let me know!


  1. Moo is adorable!!!! All my cats have been strays or from the shelter and all have been the best cats!!!! Stray cats have a way of attaching themselves to my hubby!

  2. My two feline buddies was a stray and from the Bengal cat rescue. I feed the stray cats and have rescued and found homes for four so far. So glad Moo found a loving home.

  3. Mooooo! What a wonderful addition to your little family :) Shelter cats the best, hands down.

  4. Moo is so pretty (handsome)! He looks like he's fitting right in. You've gotta love a cat that loves quilts & seems like he's come to the right house for that. The cat we have right now was a stray, born on our property. His other two siblings left but he stayed on & is a regular "farm" cat. He stays outside & never comes in the fenced yard (we also have 2 dogs). He patrols the 1 1/2 acres along with our chickens and a sheep. Merry Christmas to Moo!
