Cats; don't use just love them?

As you can see from the pics finding time to work on my Faery Kisses quilt by Helen of Hugs & Kisses isn't the only battle I have. My Himalayan Persian, Lily, just loved rolling on the quilt itself then fell asleep on my batting (bottom photo) after she had had a play.
My quilt is taking up quite a bit of my time as I tack batting to my embroidered shapes so that when I quilt it I get the trapunto effect. It sure is taking a while to do this but I hope the effect will be worth it!
Ciao... Jan x

Lily is a beautiful cat. I have the same problem with my cat when I'm trying to sew. Usually it's when I have large pieces of fabric on the table, or paper patterns.

Well the cat and the quilt are both gorgeous. The colours in your quilt are beautiful. Well done.

What a gorgeous girl she is Jan - My cats sleep on my sewing all of the time they seem to like it :)

Hi Jan...I came over from Helen's blog (Hugs & Kisses). Welcome to blogland. I only started my blog in February. It's a nice way to spend some time.
Kind Regards
