Felicity lends a paw

Felicity the cat thedreamstress.com

All last week I was frantically sewing in order to finish two new dresses and four new hats for the Katherine Mansfield Garden Party (because sometimes I’m just no good at all at being sensible and restrained!).

Felicity, lovely helpful sewing cat that she is, seemed to sense the haste, and did her best to lend a paw.  She generally likes to hang out with me while I sew, but I’ve never seen her put such a concerted effort into being there for the entire process.

Her main concern seemed to be that the fabric would run away and hide if she didn’t sit on at all times, so she spent most of the week curled up on whatever I was working on, firmly holding it in place.  Very helpful that!

First she sat on the linen:

Then she sat on the lace:

Then on the rayon slip fabric:

And then on the other linen:

Before returning to the partly sewn white linen, to make sure it didn’t attempt a mid-construction escape.

Even with the fabric under the sewing machine needle, she couldn’t be sure it was safe unless she was on guard:

Fabric was not the only material that needed her watchful eye.  She sat on the partly-made hat (as a cat ought):

And even when napping, one eye was left ever so slightly open to guard her hoard:

Whatever would I do without her!

  1. Mine are always on hand to make sure that my free-motion quilting does not get TOO free!

  2. Claire Payne says

    I always wonder how you manage to sew anything with Miss Fissy around being gorgeous. My purry, furry girlies put a stop to all that I do.

  3. I feel as though Felicity and my own fluffy George need to form some kind of Order of Fabric Protectors.
