Purple Patch Pillow Party

While I'm still struggling with the greens I thought I'd work on something else until inspiration hits. So it's time for an interlude in purple.

At the beginning of the year I signed up for a 'Pay It Forward' challenge on Facebook. I'm sure you've all heard of the concept, but just in case you basically sign up to receive something handmade from someone and in return you pledge to 'Pay It Forward' and make for others.So I have been making something for my friend, Claire. When I asked her if she had any requests she came back and said she was happy for me to make anything I liked but added that she particularly like purple, red and cats. As I've already made a red quilt and we had red month last month I decided to go with purple.Can you tell what it is yet? .................Aren't these guys just the cutest? I made a new pillow, using a pattern from 'Alley Cat Tales.The pillow has been delivered and Claire loves it, I have to say I do too. I can see another one of these getting made just for me.This is also going to be my entry for the Blogger's pillow party this month.
