Company While Quilting - Meet Violet

Violet was rescued from under a dumpster by concerned volunteers at The Cat Connection in Webster, MA. After losing my dear 14 year old friend, Casper, I didn't think I could adopt another cat.  But as time went by, I thought I'd visit a local shelter just to drop off a donation in Casper's memory.  Violet was in the "shy" room.  She was so scared and timid.  She needed a home where she could be at ease.  After a few visits with Violet, I brought her home and set up her two-story cage which was intended as a temporary home until she became familiar with the surroundings.  

We spent weeks trying to become friends.  She was less committed to the relationship than I was for sure!  Once out of the cage, she spent two weeks hiding.  She hissed and growled when I tried to feed her or got anywhere near her.  I persisted.  She finally caved in and admitted that I was the source of good things; plentiful good food and clean water, warmth, and quilts.  Quilts?!  Of course!  

Little 6 lb, Violet has discovered chasing bobbins, rearranging quilt blocks for me, chain piecing is fascinating to watch, and if I'm hand or machine sewing a binding it makes for a very comfy and warm place to nest.

Ahhh... so sweet. Glad your little shy Violet has been transformed into a good little quilting companion. I also am delighted to see a little glimpse into your quilting work these days. Happy 2018!
