    Do Quilts and Cats Go Together?

    My daughter sent me this photo and I thought how many times over the years I have seen that same look on one of our cats' faces!

    But of course, like sugar and cream; bread and butter; eggs and bacon. You get the gist.

    We had a spoiled cat that liked to sit on the edge of the sewing table and occasionally swat at the needle when I sewed. I had to be quick to get the paw before she got stitches! She always wore a very mischievious look just before she did the swat and that's what saved her bacon!

    Love this photo! At Christmas Target had these wonderful red crinkle sacks for cats and I bought 2 for my babies because they love paper bags so much. You guessed it - they have ignored them and still beg for the paper sacks I bring home from the farmer's market. I think I will donate them to one of the cat shelters; maybe they will have better luck.

    LOVE it! A good cat is all attitude. (Or should I say "catitude".)

    Yesterday I was sewing binding on a king size quilt. It is heavy and hard to shift around, but suddenly it was VERY hard to shift - you guessed it - my cat had decided to snuggle on the part of the quilt on the floor! She didn't want to get off, either... Until mommy insisted.

    They most definitely do go together.
    Cats just cannot resist a comfy quilt.

    They think a quilt on a frame is a hammock.

    LOL!! Thanks for sharing the photo! My older kitty just loves to lay around and look to irresistible to not pet. And you kitten, who is just 4 months old, is so hyper and bounces all over the house. She loves to grab my fabric when I am sewing, the little bugger. LOL!!

    Of course they do! Just ask Rahja (my avatar). He's always sneaking in to check out what I'm doing. In the photo I was sorting out fabric to destash and he was saving some purples, his favorite color.

    Peach has a favorite toy right now..it is a peppermint candy...it came from a restaurant...he bats it all over the place and throws it in the air..he doesn't try to eat it but he is very protective with it. He has more toys than many children but none are as interesting to him as his candy. He has no interest in my sewing machine but he does love to sit on a quilt when I am working on the binding or when I am trying to take a picture of it. The world is his to enjoy for sure. I wonder why I love him so much...he is soooo aloof...oh well...I just do!
