Pinning away

I made good progress pinning SITP yesterday, got the top and backing pressed ( a huge job in itself) and about two-thirds pinned. It turned out my queen-sized batting wasn't quite large enough, so today's first task will be whip-stitching some extra batting at the end to give me enough for the quilt. Then I can finish pinning and start quilting.

I like this picture of the pinned section. The pins sparkle from reflecting the flash.

While I was pressing, my Pepper cat came to help. He's indoor only now because he doesn't like other cats, except his "sister" Phantom (Squirrel). My two outside cats, Shadow and Pixel, have been staying in the spare bathroom at night, because of this weather, which annoys him totally. He's even more annoyed when he can see them outside. His grumblings when Shadow climbed up the window screen were great, too bad I didn't shoot video.

Back to pinning, more later.
