    my Quilting Kitty is a star!

    I entered this picture in a 'Quilting Kitties" photo contest sponsored by 'The Quilt Pattern Magazine'
    he won 2nd place! all of the entrants were so cute---cats & quilts seem to go together--as many here know
    i know mine sure thinks i quilt for him...and this quilt he really felt was created just as his personal hammock...
    i'm pretty happy with him winning- he will get some special treats...I get some pretty cool prizes just for being (his) Name:  personal hamock_3.JPG

    He's a beauty! I have an all white kitty named Lily that spends a lot of time in my sewing room with me. That's her in my avatar, taking a nap on a shelf full of fabric.

    Wow, great picture. Congratulations on your win.

    I have two quilting kitties. They like to listen to the machine run when they slow down to listen, but most of the time they are wrestling or run through the sewing room playing chase.

    So cute! My cat thinks I am making quilts just for him too. My parrot was of the same opinion. He liked to crawl under a quilt to nap. It was startling to climb into bed and discover that a parrot was already there.

    you would think he knows what a star he is---today he is strutting around here-getting into everything! i feel like it's going to be 'one of those days' with him constantly underfoot- in the way- being a pain! yup==gotta love 'em.
    he's 12 years old & weighs about 15 pounds- a good sized cat- and some days acts like a kitten- this morning he's trying to walk across the computer- rubbing on it- knocking things off the table....hmmmmmmmm (DIVA)

    You shouldn't have told him! Love the look on his face - like you are intruding on his personal space.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Congratulations! Yep, the cats think we are here to serve. And they are not far wrong. I have a small quilt that hangs in my dining room and my Bubbie Cat tries to get it down every so often.

    My quilting buddy is my dog Charlie. She thinks that the quilts all are hers for blankets to lay on. I sandwich my quilts on the floor and she just comes over and lays down and watches. Unfortunately she is not a little dog. She is a labadoodle and takes up a large portion of the quilt not to mention I can not keep the quilt tight so it ia not wrinkled.LOL

    awhhhhh- that sure makes me smile - i had a loving chocolate lab for 14 years who laid right under my sewing table when i sewed- always right there- when i got a machine that would start as soon as you stepped on the foot pedal i had to learn to ALWAYS turn the machine off when i stood up- or she would lay on that pedal & make it sew, sew, sew! she also would lay across any quilt i dared to lay out on the floor...she was close by my side for many good years (she was only 4 weeks old when i rescued her) I miss her every day! Kimba cat misses her too- he (adopted) some of her habits after she passed- he now runs to the door when anyone comes (he used to go hide under the bed) he flops down & sighs when he isn't getting the attention he thinks he should be getting & he shakes/scratches his collar & makes the same sound the dog's tags used to make...I don't know if he's just missing her too- or if he thinks if he acts like her enough i won't be tempted to bring home another one

    Love that pic....I have three cats, but none are allowed in my sewing world. I do l/a for others so I really can't have them (cats) lying on the tops, or even worse on the quilt set up.........anyway, they have the rest of the house to lounge around in. One of them will lay outside of the door of my sewing world waiting for me to come out....this is the one who is a "tree cat"--always looking up and has gotten herself up into the rafters between the basement unfinished and finished section and crawled around there for awhile..........that was a frightening experience for me and her...but, did it stop her...oh no she keeps looking up for a tree to hang onto!!!!!
