    ...that my cat, Ripley, ran off with my only washable fabric marker!!!

    I heard her playing with something in the hall the other night when we were trying to go to sleep. Woke up the next morning and the marker, which I had left on my sewing table, was gone.

    I have no idea where she put it!

    Just thought I'd share, not sure whether to chuckle or scold her. I should be nice - maybe she's making a little quilt of her own for me for Christmas. ;)

    Ever have a pet steal your quilting supplies?

    Pens tend to roll - is there any piece of furniture it could have rolled under? like way in the corner so you can't really see it under.

    I've torn the house apart looking for it. Under all the couches, inside the closets (she can roll stuff under the door), under the stove, the fridge, the bed, LOL.

    Maybe Ripley feels neglected?

    My cats love to get into my sewing room, becasue they know they are not allowed in there!
    One of my cats always steals my pincushion, pins included! but, he also steals reels of cotton, scraps of fabric, anything he can get his paws on really. My other cat just constantly sits on my sewing chair when she gets in there, so when I go sew, I end up with a furry butt!. Not a good look when you go down the shops afterward!

    Be sure to act surprised when you open it! :lol:

    I had a cat that would sit on the sewing table and try to catch the needle as it went up and down .... I had to teach her that was a bad thing. She finally decided that it was more fun to sit on my shoulders and watch from THAT side of the machine. :D

    I like this idea. ;)

    Yeah, if I drop scraps of fabric, or if any fabric is hanging off the edge of the table, she'll pounce on it. Or I'll have the ruler all lined up perfectly and be ready to cut something and she decides to hop right on top of it and meow at me. ^_^ I think she just wants attention.
