    Thanks QuiltE and oksewglad. Like the witch hats, I only have a couple of small pieces left of the feet fabric. 3 pieces of the feet: 1"x3.5", 2"x3.5", 4"x3.5". Enough to mix with another colour later. Hmmm, maybe a block with the sage and my fabrics?

    Thank you dublb and Anael. I never seem to be able to just DO. I always feel the need to tinker and put my own spin on things. I have a few more designs of my own to do and plan to make larger pieces of those. I now know that the resist stage exhausts me but, if I have it in a place that is safe from kitties I can do it over an entire day if I want.

    Wonder ... with the nicer weather, what about doing the dyeing in the garage??

    QuiltE - until at least one car sells, there is no room away from the cars. Plus, it's cold in the garage. And I was more worried about paw prints on the fabric, not coloured kitties. lol

    Yeah, if I tried somethin' like that I'd have black cat paw-prints all over my house (my new house has white carpet, I hate white carpet) but I'd git no paw-prints on the fabric that I wanted it on. Neither o' the cats that allow us ta live w/'em would tolerate it.

    Don't think it didn't cross my mind QuiltE. But, I am talking the resist stage so I would end up with glue in places I don't want glue. I wonder if Dainty would stand for some eco-friendly dye on her paws? I know Samantha sure wouldn't.

    I can't imagine white carpet in a house. At least not MY house. We had off-white when we moved inn here. Brand new off-white carpet that the previous owner steam cleaned the morning we were moving in. Within a year we had converted to hardwood. Our house is lived in and I'd much rather quilt or cross stitch than clean.

    Yes I hate this carpit! It was here when we moved in here last July. It is already so very stained! I want wood laminate but DH is startin' ta talk about puttin' more carpet down again. He sits on the floor so he wants it soft.

    Dublb - my youngest brother has always loved to lay on the floor. He used to play with his kids, laying on the floor. They use to draw on a white board, play blocks, color, play games - always on the floor. Needless to say he would always have a carpet too. His kids are now in their 30's. When they bring their dogs to visit, he is down on the floor rough housing with them!

    As kids, we lay on a nice thick blanket in front of the TV. I hear laminate is a lot hardier than hardwood but, I grew up with 1950's hardwood floors so I am a hardwood snob. And it is so much fun to watch the kitties try to turn or stop on the shiny floors.

    Carpet, the right colour, can work quite well.

    Anael ... I imagine PP was saying to you "not in your life .... unless you want me to become a true KK!"

    W4Me ... yup, just what I was thinking ... let them stomp around on it!
    Only one problem ... the next thing would be that they'd probably lay down!

    My KK/PP has white feet as you might know. One morning I came into the living room and there she was, orange feet!! The night before I had curry for dinner and she thought she might like that too so she had walked around in the frying pan.

    Oh I love it! Again I am amazed at how the sage picks up the colors o' the other fabrics! It's a true chameleon

    Thank you. The sage surprises me, too. I sure wish I could get more of it for future projects but can't find it anywhere.
