Name The Kitten Contest!

Would ya'll be surprised if I told you that we have another cat?  Scott found this tiny, malnourished, pitiful soul in the parking lot at work last week:

He brought her home Thursday night.  She is so little and just skin & bones.  I took her to see Dr. Patti first thing on Friday morning.  I must tell you, that was quite the experience which I will get into in a moment.

She's approx. 7 - 8 weeks old and weights 1 1/2 pounds.  She had fleas (of course) and probably worms.  Dr. Patti treated her for both.

She had another issue as well and if you're squimmish, just skip the next paragraph.  I have heard of this but I have never seen it in person.  And I don't care to see it ever again.

Dr Patti found a lump on her neck/chest.  At first she thought it was some sort of an infection.  No, it was not an infection, it was a Botfly Larvae living under the baby's skin.  She pulled it out with a tweezer and I just about died.  This all happened so fast and I was so incredibly grossed out over it!  This thing left a hole in the baby's skin that almost the size of a dime!  This thing is called a Cuterebra and basically, it's a giant maggot.  Discusting!  If you want to read more about it, here is a link.  The article is quite humorous to help with the gross out factor but I will warn you, there are pictures.

Okay, so enough of that.  I'll get back to the cuteness!!!

She's doing very well today now.  She's on antibiotics.  She's eating very well, she was playing, she was chattering and meowing this morning and she discovered her tail!

We are going to keep her.  After I nurse her back to health, there's no way I'll be able to part with her.  But there's one little problem.  Scott and I can't agree on a name!

So, I decided to have a contest!  Send me kitty names!  Just leave your suggestions and ideas in the comment section on my blog.  Feel free to send as many as you would like.  Try to keep your ideas not too cutsy though.  Scott doesn't like cutsy.  Men!

We can of course only choose one name but when we do choose one, the winning name will receive a complimentary copy of the upcoming 2016 Crazy Quilt Calendar:


I will announce the name that we choose on August 16th.  If a name is suggested by more than 1 person and we choose that name, the first person who suggested it will be winner.

Please share this contest on your blog and other social media places.  Scott needs a lot of ideas to choose from.  Remember, he's a man!  A good one, but still a man!

Correction For Autumn 2015 Issue of CQ Quarterly Magazine

I made a terrible error in the Autumn 2015 issue of Crazy Quilt Quarterly magazine.

On page 20, Genevieve Tracey's "Out Of My Darkness" quilt is not her quilt.  It is the quilt that inspired her project. 

This is Gen's quilt:

The error rests entirely in my hands.  I was not paying attention when I put Gen's article together.  I send out my most sincere apologies to Genevieve and I will include this correction in the Winter issue.

Attention: Crazy Quilt Quarterly Contributors and Advertisers

Due to the high cost of shipping these days, I can no longer afford to mail print copies to my contributors and advertisers.  Instead, I will be sending digital pdf files.  For the Autumn issue, which will be released on August 1st, I will send those files to all contributors and advertisers in the next week or so.  I apologize for this but shipping is just so high now.
