    My new quilting assistant

    Meet my new quilting assistant, Miss Maple. She is very good at keeping my sewing desk cleaned off and checking how much thread I have on the spool. (first photo)

    She also is learning to help hold down the quilt, but being so young, she isn't too good at that yet as she would rather be clearing the desk. (second photo)

    When it's nap time though, she excels at holding down my stack of patterns, especially if I have some fabric laying on top.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Miss Maple looks very busy. When you're finished with that quilt you're working on, we would really love to see it! I believe I can speak for most of the QB members. Already love the colors! Please!? Pretty please with sugar and molasses?!!

    she's a precious little one, on her way to being a great quilt inspector.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Quilting is so much more fun with a furry friend close by. Miss Maple is darling!

    Miss Maple is very pretty and very busy. She will get all her duties perfected as she gets older. Good Luck.

    I love Miss Maple she looks like a wonderful quilting "helper" My little miniature dachshund Ollie, has a pillow down by my sewing desk and he has to have a blanket on the pillow so he can crawl under and sleep cause he knows we will be in the sewing room all day long. LOL He just sticks his head out once in awhile to be sure I am still there. LOL

    She's gorgeous. I keep hoping that a kitty will "adopt" me. My family doesn't want me to get one, so it will need to be unavoidable. Like, oh I found this kitty on my deck and it just came right in! I don't know how that happened! LOL

    My grandchildren found her in the park at 5 weeks old. She had an eye infection, bloody nose and was emaciated. Now that she is healthy and I know she is going to make it, she has become a very permanent part of the family. We thought for a while she might lose her left eye, but even that has healed up with just the tiniest of scars that is only visible with the instrument the vet uses. She is our miracle kitty.

    The grandchildren named her. They said she looks like someone poured maple syrup over her. Hugs and smiles to everyone with thanks for loving my new helper as much as we do.

    I love her. I love calicos. My son has a dilute tortie/Siamese cross that he brought home from Spain. He found her at the pound while he was posted there. Cici is very affectionate.

    I love calico cats. They are so pretty. She doesn't happen to be deaf is she? My friend has one and she is deaf.

    No, she isn't deaf, except when I am telling her NO! LOL. She definitely can hear the food container and the sound of food hitting her dish.

    The vet in Ohio where she was found, and here in NY where she now lives didn't agree about whether she is Calico or Tortoise, but they did agree that either way, those cats are known for having attitude and that we could plan on her expecting to be the Queen and to rule the house. So far they have not been wrong, but it's not an issue because she is so adorable, we are her willing subjects.

    Lucky you to have such a pretty assistant. I love having my cats around me when I'm sewing.
