Where's Kitty? Dot-To-Dot-- Just in Time for National Pet Month in May

Are you up to the challenge of finding Kitty in over 30 global destinations?  

Where's Kitty Dot-To-Dot is one of Thunder Press' newest adult crafting books, published in March 2017.

Each puzzle has over 500 dots, some close to 1,000!  Challenging is a good word for them, but they can also be very relaxing just like the adult coloring books.

Everyone that I showed the book to had the same reaction...."Holy _____".  Fill in the blank with all kinds of words, because that's what I heard.

One friend started the Statue of Liberty as shown on the front cover.  I worked on it a bit too.

My youngest daughter (age 20) completed the Big Ben puzzle.

These are fun, and again, I will say challenging.  The numbers are small, and some overlap each other.  I actually am working on the Holly Wood sign puzzle.  I've had to get out my magnify glass a few times to make sure I was seeing the right numbers.

Do you want to give it a try?  I think this book will make a great gift for yourself, or for any adult on your list.  I also think that teens would really enjoy it.  It might even keep a teen off the gaming system or their phone!

Disclosure:  I rec'd a copy of the book for the purpose of this review.  I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions are my own.  Post does contain affiliate links.

WIP Wednesday-- Quilt Retreat Report

As usual, I had a wonderful time at the quilt retreat and I feel like I got a lot done with all those hours of dedicated sewing time.

The first thing I made sure to get done was my President's block for the outgoing President of our guild.

I then got out the red string blocks and got those finished.  I plan to start putting the quilt together after getting one more color of string blocks made.

I then did some fixing and adding to my guild challenge.  I'm very pleased now with how it is----and it's ONE out of 17 of the 17 UFO's in 2017 that I can actually say is done now.

Then it was time to bite the bullet and finally get this Charming Stars top worked on.  I am pretty proud of myself for sandwiching it and then actually taking the hours it took to machine quilt around each star.  Hopefully I really will finish it in the next couple of weeks.

Last, but not least, I was able to get 2 more rows on to my black and white with a little red quilt.  Again, I didn't have enough black and white to make all of the blocks.  I'm anxious to finish this and really hope that it won't take me until the next retreat to work on it!

Haven't stitched a thing since Saturday night, but cross your fingers for me that I get the yo-yo's out when I am babysitting this week and get some work done on those!

I link up with the following blogs:
