A Frayed Percy

I've noticed that when Mum sews, she goes around all the cut out pieces with the overlocker before she starts sewing them together. She says it stops the fabric coming apart (she calls that "fraying"), and she also says it helps make the whole garment look neat and professional.

Well something happened that's made me worry about Percy.  Percy and I were lying on the bed together, but when I got up, I had fluffy bits of Percy stuck on me.  Percy's coming apart!

I told Mum, Percy's fraying, and he doesn't look neat and professional. You need to put him in the overlocker quickly!

Mum said Percy was OK, and that he was just changing from his summer coat to his winter coat because the weather's starting to cool down.  Then she said I do the same, but it's not as noticeable because my hair's much shorter.

I hadn't realised I was changing my hair coat! I have nice warm jackets when I get cold, and I get under blankets,  I didn't know my actual hair coat changed too.

Anyway, it's really good to know Percy's not actually fraying.  I was very worried about him.

Thinking about sewing things, Mum and Miss C were talking about a dress Mum's making for Miss C, and Joey said, "And me too?"

Mum said, "Yes, I'll make a dress for you too."

Then Joey said (because she's my very best friend in the whole world), "And Fanta?"

Mum said, "I don't think Fanta would feel comfortable in a dress, I'll make her a new scarf."

Really! That's what happened!  I'm getting a new scarf!  I'm so excited!  Of course, when I pulled all of my scarves out of the shelf the other day, Mum said I had to choose just one, because I can only wear one at a time,  and it was really hard to decide. So when I get my new one, it's going to be even harder to choose. Of course, if Joey's wearing a dress that matches one of my scarves, I'll know exactly which one to choose, because we're very best friends.

So Percy's not broken, and I'm getting a new scarf.  It's all good news.

Licks and tail wags,
Miss Fantasia Dog
(Call me Fanta).

  1. Oh my mouses, you had be worried there. Glad to hear Percy isn't fraying after all. I have to say I'm a shedder, myself. Not a thing in this house has escaped my beautiful ginger furs and in all honesty, I'm pretty darn proud to be able to say that. Purrs, Seville.
