    Just have to laugh..

    I haven't worked on a quilt in ages so tonight I finally cut out strips to make a baby quilt. I found a basket that the strips would fit into well just so I could set them out of the way for a bit. So here comes Gracie the kitty. She has never paid attention to said basket until now. I find her curled up on the fabric in the basket. So I said fine, I'll move the fabric and you can have the basket. I laid the strips out on the table, sew a few strips together, look up ...and you guessed it...she no longer wants the basket, she is now laying on the strips I have on the table LOL Gotta love my fur babies but sometimes they are aggravating lol

    Gracie wants a quilt! Obviously she's chosen her colours.

    Becky, I know exactly how you feel. Our kitten Hide was lying on a pile of old, faded, or torn jeans last night as I was trying to cut the usable pieces to make a Log Cabin and Yellow Brick Road. Until they were sitting in the living room with me Hide never went near them! Little devils!! I love our Hidey Hide but yes he can be aggravating. LOL

    This is why I shut my sewing room door when I have a project laying around. She seems to think that her fur MUST be all over everything. She used to use my Long Arm frame for a hammock when I had a quilt loaded up on it. She was mad for awhile when I replaced the frame for a table my Bailey 15 now sits in.

    My Lily is the same way. Before I put my fabrics on boards, she used to lay on one of my shelves. (See my avatar) If I have fabric layed out for some reason, she has to lay on it. I finally got a cheap wicker laundry basket and threw some fabric in it that I know that I will never use and now that is where she lays when she is in my sewing room. If she is crawling on my cutting table or the ironing board, I will just drop her into her basket and she curls up and goes to sleep. That cheap ole basket has saved me a lot of frustration (and Lily isn't getting yelled at anymore!)

    Great stories. I wouldn't want to sew without my quilt inspectors.

    I made my first quilt for the dog I had at that time, maybe you are right and Gracie needs her own....but she'd probably prefer a pile of strips LOL

    Francie, Gracie does that at times too. Then she move around and lay on whatever has come out if I don't move it fast enough. Keeps me laughing lol
