On Friday morning we had the pleasure of hosting many kittens needing “furever” homes. There were several black kittens like this one, and I wanted to take them all home!.
Did you know that black cats are the hardest to find homes for? Sad to know that superstition of the black cat causes this. (Although my mother said that since she was born in October, they were lucky for her!) St Joe County has over 600 cats right now, of all colors and breeds. We got almost all our cats over the years from there, and they’ve given us such pleasure, whether it’s helping with my sewing, like Lacy,
It seems that cats are favorites of many sew-ers and quilters.We feature Crafter Kitties in our quarterly newsletter. (I could use more photos right now. See details in the newsletter.)
Cats are a favorite subject for patterns and fabric, too. For instance, we have Cat in the Hat Cuddle fabric 999602,
and the machine embroidery CD Hankie Blankie Pets’ Faces 13864, to make a cuddly blanket with an animal head (pattern instructions on the CD).
Laurel Burch’s famous cat fabric!
And even slipper socks! A18972!
Besides fabric and patterns, if you can find a place in your home and heart, please visit your local Humane Society or Rescue. (There are dogs there, too!)
Until next time, here’s to purr-fect sewing and quilting projects!
