Fabric, Fabric, Everywhere


Here I am giving mom the eye, because Lucky is on her lap and not me. I am on dad's lap. And while I may look comfortable on dad's lap. I really am not.


Because I am not on mom's lap. So guess what I did?



You guessed it. I climbed on mom's lap, right next to Lucky. Good thing mom is accommodating.

Now, mom and Auntie are making a QUEEN size quilt, and raffling it off for the Meezers. The Meezers are a great blogging family of Siamese cats (and now one almost Meezer) that have had some really rotten luck with jobs and unemployment. Mom and Auntie wanted to help so after Auntie made the quilt to raffle for Churchill's vet bills, they decided to make a quilt to raffle for the Meezers. Mom said they needed a queen size quilt. Mom wants it big because if you have a dog that jumps on your covers, then the quilt hike up on the side and air goes up your backside. So mom talked Auntie into making it 90" x 102". The tickets are ten dollars each. You have to go to Auntie's blog to buy a ticket.


So, Auntie needs fabric, and whenever Auntie needs fabric, she always comes over to see mom, and what mom has. (Mom is a fabric hog. If she sees it and likes it, she buys it. Even if she is not ready for it yet, because she knows if she doesn't buy it, she will never find it again.) So anyway, Auntie comes over and raids mom's stash.


This is what mom's stash looks like. She has them separated by color.









I think this is going to be a fun project. Auntie is coming over at 8:30 Tuesday morning to start sewing with mom. The Bicker Sisters will be at it again.

I am very glad that Mom's lap is big enough for both you and Lucky. Your Mom has quite a stash. The quilt is going to be very colorful.

Bella is the same way with me. Her Dad won't admit it but we all know she is way more attached to me than to him. If i'm sitting down she's ALWAYS on me.

I'm sure the quilt will turn out wonderful, be sure to post after pics of it :)

Your mom has a lot of beautiful fabric! :) We don't care which lap we are on - mom or dad's is equally comfortable. :)

What a sweet idea! Woman said she'll buy a raffle ticket. I hope the bickering didn't keep you and Lucky up! Pugs need their rest you know.

Daisy said...

That is a lot of fabric!

I agree, mom laps are better than dad laps.

This is very generous of your Auntie to make a big quilt like that. Misty Mombean said it cost her over $200 in fabric to do a queen size quilt. That is a LOT of fabric!

I am sure this quilt is going to raise a lot of money. Looking forward to seeing the finished article!

I much prefer my mum's lap to my dad's. Not that I don't like my dad, but my mum's lap is much more comfortable. I only very rarely choose to sit on him and then only if he is eating cheese...

Oh all that fabric looks like fun. I should like to scratch on it and flip it around and roll my furs all over it!

That's nice that Lucky lets you share your momma's lap, Roxy! Coco growls at me when I get up on Momma when she's there, too. But sometimes I do it anyway. She's not the boss of me.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe
