Truer Words, etc.

Have you seen the sign “Dogs have owners, Cats have staff”? That is certainly correct here at our house. This one represents my Abyssinian boss, Tuba. He often supervises my sewing endeavors, and he is shown choosing my thread color. I copied an old Zwicky Thread poster found online.

Domesticated Animal Blocks

I call this Cat a “Patchwork Calico Cat” since I used all old fashioned calicos to make her … Am really running out of time to make another pet block but I can TRY!  It is from an old issue of Quilter’s Newsletter magazine from the early to mid 90’s and I downsized it to fit our requirements.
