I Finished My UFO for May, but is it Mimi's Quilt?

I don't think I have ever finished a UFO so early in the month. I guess Mimi was sort of encouraging me to get it done. She can be very persuasive you know! This quilt was supposed to be for a friend and co-worker who was having a baby. I started it in 2004, but my friend ran into some maternity problems and decided to go home and stay with her Mom. I think her Mom lived in Prince Edward Island or Newfoundland. To make a long story short no one at my school knew where she was or when she would return. I put the unfinished top away so that I could finish it when she came back, but she never did. And she left no forwarding address, so there it sat in my UFO bin, for years. But now it is done! Yippee!
I'm not sure if it should become Mimi's quilt now that it is finished, although many of you thought that she should have it. She was very flattered by all the attention she received! And she really does love it!
But Felix likes it too. Only he prefers to sleep under things.


And then there is Oscar. He is happy in the cat bed I crocheted for him. I know he would love to sleep on the quilt too, but when Mimi claims something for her own, no one else will be able to get near it. Ever!

lovely quilt. Too bad about the circumstances. (The way some people just disappear...)

Gorgeous quilt Hetty! I think this quilt was meant to stay at your house, whether your furry friends love to sleep on it, under it, or watch it from a distance! It’s such a happy quilt!

What is the expression Hetty, possession is 9/10th of the law, so I think this quilt has become Mimi's. At least Felix can also enjoy it from below, so just have it on a chair and you have 2 happy kitties. If you think Mimi has too many quilts, then maybe the next project is another crochet bet for Oscar LOL.

We do love to spoil our little furry friends. I know mine are spoiled rotten.

It's definately Mimi's quilt... but aren't they all. Maybe she will share it from time to time. Shame about it not going to the original recipient though as it is such a lovely quilt.

The quilt is gorgeous and suits Mimi very well!
I suppose the other two cats are males and they should show some courtesy and leave the quilt to Mimi ;-)

The quilt is not only a hit for bloggers, but also for cats.
I'd say if Felix sleeps under things and Oscar in things and Mimi on things, well................
I would leave it at that and when you start another quilt Mimi might just jump from one quilt to the next.
And maybe Jesica and Daria can then be made happy?
