So, let me introduce my furry self.
My name is Darla (“The Girl with the Polka Dot Tummy"), and I am a 4-year old tabby. I live with my mom and dad and my litter brother Alfalfa. Alfie is an orange tabby. He didn't want to be in the show this year because he's been spending much of his time on Neighborhood Watch duties at the windows, keeping an eye on the birds and other critters that visit. It is an impurrtant job too.
By the way, I have the softest furs EVER invented! Silky smooth, I am. I can’t help it! All the better to leave them behind on the quilts I get to test. Besides being a sewing cat, I also lay on quilts to hold them down (we don’t want them to fly away, you know) and test them for snuggle-ability. It’s my favorite part of the whole quilting process.
Now I would love to show you my sewing lessons to purr-oove my quilting abilities.
First, here I am watching while Mom explained how to use a rotary cutter. She helped me cut squares out for a quilt. Because I don’t have opposable thumbs, she used the rotary cutter while I held the fabric down or held the ruler. Or both. I`m good like that....
Then I learned to thread the machine. Can I tell you how much I love playing with thread?? I like Mommy’s machine. I think it’s a Purr-nina.
Here I am guiding the fabric through the machine, being careful to
And the finished result! How can you argue with success?!
When the voting begins in a few days, I hope you will come back and vote for me! I can’t promise, but I might even sew a quilt for you!
