    My little helper

    There are so many comfy places for her in our house, but she has to be right on the project I am trying to cut out!

    What a pretty brindled fur kitty! When a cat wants attention they find a way to get it.

    She is just trying to join in the fun. Obviously it must be lots of fun or you wouldn't be playing with the fabric all the time. Or is she just trying to tell you, she is more fun than any of the fabric you have. It would be nice to be able to read their minds. (Or maybe not.)

    She might have thought there was a mouse hiding under the fabric !!

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    She just wants to help.
    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.

    She just loves being with her Mama.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Darling outfits made all the better by your helper! She just wants you to know she's the ALPHA cat and that you should be paying more attention to HER!

    She is precious--and that look in her eye is exactly what I get when I get ready to start a new project. When I am working here in the house, I turn my quilt upside down (the white side up) to put my work on, showing it off as I progress on it, and she gets really aggravated and vocal--she hates the slick side--so she will lay down right in the middle of my spread-out for viewing work. I have learned to see around the cat to get the idea of what the quilt is going to look like. Mine is named Patticake--what's yours?

    Comfy is one thing...being with the one she owns is another. She's a sweetie. Thanks for showing her to us.

    Of course that is the way Monkey Man is when I am sewing. That cat has to be right there on my lap watching what I am doing or on the pattern pieces..

    My kitties want to help, too, but I'm so distractable, I'm afraid I'd lop my fingers off with the rotary cutter if I have that kind of help! Another thing they do whenever they get into the sewing room is pull the pins off the magnetic pin holder. I guess I should have realized that would happen when I bought the ones with little butterflies on top. In any case, I have to keep my cats out of there because one of them tries to eat thread, and that can be fatal to a cat.

    In the second picture it looks to me as if beautiful Ms Kitty is saying, "When are you going to make me one of those adorable little outfits?!"
