Happy Birthday Brownie and Goldie - cat photo alert


I find it hard to believe it was twelve years ago that a coworker walked into my office carrying a box with two tiny kittens in it.  Brownie and Goldie, didn't get "real" names since my husband insisted we would only keep one of them.  (Look how that decision worked out!)

They are great quilt cats.  They keep me company in the sewing room and pose nicely for photos.  My only complaint is how Brownie keeps clearing the shelf of fat-quarters so she can have a the spot for herself....

They are pretty good about staying out of the antique quilt room...they make up for it by sleeping on the quilts in my living-room!  They have traveled with me up and down the East Coast and even over the England for a few years.
Where Brownie was the self appointed village greeter...a tiring job....

Sio,
I love your furry friends- they do keep life interesting. Mars loves to play in my fabric and is often a helper when I lay out the quilt blocks on the floor. Happy Birthday to your beautiful kitties.
Regards,
Anna
