with the help of my cat

Sew Cal Gal is hosting Pets On Quilts Show 2011.

I have had Tiger's much needed help many times since I began my blogging journey a year ago. 
  Most of the time he is working behind the scenes, but believe me, he is always helping....that is, when he isn't napping : )
He was shy at first, as we prepared to take a picture of my iPad cover.

Here he helped me tell about the comfort quilt made for my sweet mother.


He was really getting the hang of it by the time we did a review for this Lapel glue stick!

He was thrilled to see a package of selvages that came in the mail.

He has given his approval of my very first quilt.  


He wasn't sure about these pot scrubbers : (

He was as excited as I was to get the challenge fabric for my local quilt shop challenge.
He even shares an interest in my bird watching hobby.

Let me officially thank you, Tiger, for all your help.  I just couldn't imagine life without you!

piece,
elizabeth

Lovely pictures. My favorite is the first one, all stretched out and napping in that odd way cat's do. He's beautiful and has great markings. Thanks.

Tiger is a beautiful cat and I agree a great helper. Love seeing all your photos of him and your beautiful quilts too. Hard to pick a favorite, but I think that one of him on your first quilt is just an amazing photo. I think he is thinking "is this really for me?".

Love it. Thanks for sharing.

So glad you have Tiger to keep you company in your sewing adventures! I can't believe that quilt is your very first one -- it is beautiful and looks so complicated! Well done!

Tiger is to cute, love the lapel photo! My kitty quality insector does not approve of all of my creations either. At least we can count on them to be honest. lol
