Sewing Assistant's Report...

"Hi. Mommie's had a long day and has gone to bed. She promised me I could update you, so, in spite of the problem of typing without opposable thumbs, I hope you'll appreciate that I might make a typo. I hope it's nothing awful, just something little."

"I'm Mommie's sewing assistant and she says that sometimes I just get in the way, but someone has to watch the back of the machine....that light in the front (the big white oval thing in the photo) is really bright but Mommie says it lets her see true colors in the fabrics and that helps her make her bags really cool...I just think it's super bright. It's also warm. I like that in the winter, but she doesn't let me up under it very often."

"Mommie says she has to make a lot of bags for the Cat Show. I'm not sure what she means by a cat show, but some of these bags are brand spanking new fabrics, and some have been on the shelves for a bit. Mommie always has a hard time deciding which ones to use, as she loves them all. I suggested the Tabby fabric in the Mera down below, because frankly, I don't like Tabbies much and would like to see this fabric disappear. Mommie says I'm discriminating against those who are not like me and that's not a nice thing to do. I love my Mommie, but sometimes I just don't understand her. The Siamese is the top cat. I'm surprised she doesn't agree with me."

"Today, Mommie made 7 of these Posy Sock Sacks that everyone went nuts over last summer. I heard her say she thinks that's a record for the number of bags she's ever made in one day."

"She says that's the reason she had to go to bed. I'm glad she did. I don't get many chances to talk to you all alone, you know? Sometimes I wish Mommie didn't spend so much time sewing, I like her to pet me and play with me, instead. But she says she has to be sure there's kibble for me and the Calico Curmudgeon. I haven't seen kibble come out of those bags, so I don't know what she means. But she's very serious when she says it."

"Before she was finished sewing today, she had Posies all over the cutting table, on the ironing board, on the stand she sets things on while she's sewing, and of course, in her lap. I've never seen so many bags at once! We should have lots of kibble, I think."

"Everything is all packed away now, ready to go. I'm not sure what she means, but when she packs things I get worried. I think that means that "ol woman" as she refers to herself is coming to feed and water us while Mommie is away. I hope she doesn't stay gone long. The "ol woman" is nice enough, but she's not Mommie. When Mommie's gone, I have to sleep alone. I don't like that at all..."

"I guess I'd better go up and snuggle with Mommie now. I'm glad I got the chance to fill you in on our very busy day. I hope I can chat with you again soon!"

Thanks for the update, Meezer! I'm glad to hear that your mommie was so amazingly productive (and the posies are all gorgeous -- lots of kibble should be forthcoming), and is now taking a well-deserved rest. Maybe it's time to go curl up next to her and purr? ;)

Hi Meezer, great update ;) I hope you remind your Mommie that she needs to get some rest and please tell her to have a safe and fun time next weekend!

LOL...Sallee, you are one busy lady! Hugs, Cary

Good luck with the show!

Do you have any more fabric like the third picture down, right (white with cats in the yarn, rust and brown colors)? I'd love that in a Mavis, if you have that much fabric.

Let me know and I'll order properly.

Hi, Meezer.. Boomer, Callie & Sadie send catnip scented kisses.. Your Mommy has been working like crazy, hasn't she? And the bags are beautiful.. I hope you two got a good snuggle in last night. Sadie curled up next to me and was there when I woke up..

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
