    Back in 2011 I was headed out to my first quilt retreat....

    when my avatar and quilt inspector made it clear she was coming along. That's the first photo. When I told her no cats or quilting inspectors were allowed to attend, that's when the 2nd photo happened. She did not come, which I am sure ruffled her feathers!

    It looks like you need to make her a little quilt of her own.

    Look at her face in the second picture. "If you think you're leaving me behind, think again", she says.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    I made her a quilt for her kitty condo and she loves it. I have 2 other little tops made for her, I just have to sandwich and quilt. She is a sweety and is a very funny cat!

    If we get suitcases out, our two cats are in them or on them as I'm packing. Have to keep them shut unless I want fur on everything. They know we'll be leaving and they don't like it.

    My son's cat does the same thing. Cats are wonderful.

    I am sure the retreat was a chance to quilt without her inspecting every stitch ;-) my girls are constantly inspecting, rearranging blocks, etc

    I love my "helpers". Sometimes they help me in ways that I didn't know I needed help. Sweet babies!

    I totally love yours pics! She looks like my "cat nephew" Maine coon tabby with high white. He's around 22 lbs. and so newsy. Your second pic is what I call "pissed off kitty face", he makes that quite a bit!! I have made him two quilts of his own, both flannel. He of course, would be in the suitcase, he loves them!

    Thanks for sharing, you made me laugh!!

    Sounds like my cat. My cat jumps onto my sewing machine when I am trying to sew. One day she almost got the needle through her paw, but that hasn't stopped her from jumping on my machine.

    I'm glad I could give you a chuckle or two. Chloe has her own ideas about how things should be. I got her from a local shelter. She doesn't like being with other cats so being near other cats in the shelter stressed her out. But as soon as I got her home she fit right in. She is an only cat though. She makes that very clear when she sees cats outside. How such huge screams could come form such a dainty thing, I'll never know!! LOL!

    Your kitty looks like a kitty we used to have...a MaineCoon. Socrates, was also my quilt helper. He would lay on the quilt to test it's softness. Have to love those cats!
