Sadie! Come quick! It's time to show your stuff at the Pets on Quilts Show! We have to thank Padsworth, Dragondrop, and Lily Pad Quilting for hosting this best-quilt-show-on-earth event!
You're the Hostess with the Meowstess this year from the Three Cats Ranch!
Mom is totally into making these pet pawtraits. Yours is her fifth one! Here are the other ones she's done. That's me, Smitty, in the upper right there.
So, Sadie, you know you've hit the big time when your purrecious mug is captured in a pet pawtrait.
Pawesome! Did you see it Smitty?
I think Mom did a supurrb job capturing my lovely furs, don't you?
I helped her make it. I sat right nearby so that she could gaze into my eyes and get every fur. Every fur in its place...that's my meowtto. (Can you tell I've been purracticing my Catonese vocabulary words?)
I purrsonally inspected every stitch, and when I purrceived an error, I appurrised her of my impurression.
Mom, look! You furgot this little spurrinkle of orange right here.
But I told her right from the get-go: No nude modeling. I'm under age. My fur coat stays on at all times.
Well, that's a good girl, Sadie. I'm happy to know you've repented from your street-walker days when you were a cat on the purrowl. Next, you need to work on your model walk. You need to do it like those models at those Mew York furshion shows.
Here, let me demonstrate. Watch and learn, my young furriend.
And Sadie, we can't let this oppurrtunity pass without giving a big meow-out to our good furriend Molly who blogs at the Objects of Design. Molly helped pick out the fabrics fur your pawtrait. Isn't she purretty?
Molly sent all these beautiful tortoiseshell batiks for Mom to use. Look at how beautifully these match your furs.
And do you remember when you had that, er, exhaust purroblem with your tailpipe? Molly even sent this fabric for the, um, rest of your furriends...your passengers, we might say.
Molly even gave you a nickname: Sadie McWormypants!
Oh, Smitty, don't be impurrtinent. Can we please not talk about that? Not right befur the show!
I liked that part best of all, Sadie, and so I reminded Mom to use it when she made your pawtrait. I said, it's right over here, Mom!
She put it on the back side of your quilt, Sadie. Get it? Backside? Ha! Our mom is such a card!
As long as I live, he's never going to let me furget. It's pawsitively empurrassing.
And when she quilted it, what do you suppose she quilted? Huh? You guessed it: Worms!!!
I think even the binding has little worm faces...well, maybe not faces...worms don't have faces.
So here we go, Sadie! Here's our entry into the Pets on Quilts Show! It's you: Pawtrait of Sadie.
Sadie's pawtrait finished up at 11 x 13 inches...so a mini, like our little cat. It's fusible applique and furree meowtion quilted on my mom's domestic sewing machine.
Now all you peeps head on back to the Pets on Quilt Show. There's plenty more pets to purruse.
