    Grrrr...Feline Folly.. One of the Girls did it!

    Trimmed and random sorted a 90+ piece stack of 3" scraps last night for the binding on the exploding blocks quilt..sorted by pattern and length and put them next to the sewing machine to sew along as I felt like it...Got up to a scrambled up mess...Now they are really random...Grrrrr...I know it was one of the girls because they are the ones that "get even"...AND they got thrown out of the bedroom last night because they were deliberately banging on stuff to keep us awake. Someday I will learn to put stuff totally away...Not like kids where you can find out who did it or punish them all or threaten them with military school....they won't confess...I have watched Callie do something to wake DH up then either take off like a speeding bullet before he sees her or drop down and pretend to be asleep. He will swear she didn't do anything...had to take a picture to prove it..He fell totally in love with her the first day she showed up freezing and starving and is blind to her faults. She is the really sneaky one...Istar does the same thing just isn't as subtle and gets caught, but since I was asleep I don't know which one did it.... Can't live with them and can't live without them. LOL

    Well, now you do really get random & scrappy! That's why I keep my sewing room door closed!

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    My grey cat "pets" us to get petted! My tuxedo just noses my hand and talks. Both are a pain when you are working on a project. Cutting fabric... Gotta lay on it! Laying out the blocks ...gotta skid across the mane rearrange them!

    I'm not really mad at them...actually think it's funny the tricks they play on us and each other...we have four...had five but our beloved 17 year old passed away a year ago and we miss him terribly. Callie gifted us with Istar and Jackson 63 days after she was rescued..how's that for timing...they have filled our lives with joy and learning about how alike we are. Can't imagine life without them.

    Most people put a bed runner on the bed in case of cold toes, mine is there to catch the cat hair and keep it away from the pillows. I have a long haired black cat named Bruno who will only sleep on cotton, so I put a cheap cotton quilt from a garage sale on the foot of the bed over the cotton/polyester bedspread. Works like a charm, so now I have got to make a pretty bed runner in burgundy, soft blue, cream, and black to match the bedroom. He has recently discovered that if he pokes me with his claws, early in the morning, I will get up and let him out. Should never have done it the first time. Demanding little bugger!

    I know where you are coming from-- I have 7 rescues. I keep my sewing room door closed but they know when I'm headed in there and all will run in as soon as the door opens. They make off with pin cushions, packages of elastic, absolutely anything they can carry off. Such characters.

    Sorry for your mess, but I think it's really cute! Just trying to help out! One of the granddogs is spiteful. If you pet the other one or play with the other one, the naughty one will sneak off and do something bad. And you can't yell at him because he's very sensitive and pouty.

    They are so spoiled...don't mind them sleeping on the bed, in the bedroom, wherever they want to be...My husband has a hard time sleeping as it is...and once in a while they just aren't ready for bed when we are and are darn well going to see to it we don't sleep. Have an old antique primitive ladder leaning against the wall with pictures in the slots...she starts slapping those...gets on the cedar chest and bangs the blinds...bites his toes that are sticking out of the covers, messes up his hair. We shut them in a nice room we have downstairs with all the cat amenities available a couple of nights last week and they stopped their antics until this little adventure....The getting even is just hilarious when you think of the mental process it has to go through....too much like humans me thinks...

    Just put them together the way they are.
    The Kittys may have design experience you do not know about.

    There's a reason rooms have doors. I learned that the hard way when Scooter was a puppy.

    Yeah, doors are fine unless you have a cat that can open them (in or out, carpet or hardwood). Doesn't do any good to put mine in a separate room. I have to lock the bathroom door so they don't join me in the tub. They also love the sewing machine action and I had to spend a lot of time teaching them to stay back from the needle when they were so curious and wanted to get up close and personal. A least now they keep their distance on the table. But they are sooooo spoiled, they can get away with almost anything. Be sure to let us see the design that your two miscreants came up with.

    My sewing room is the only pet free room in the house for this reason....and because I have a 12 year old Beagle who decides when she is and is not housetrained. The whole house is wood laminate floors except I kept the squishy thick carpet in my "playroom"!

    My M'Gennis loves to be in the sewing room with me. He has finally lost interest in the needle and the take-up lever BUT he like to sit and watch me sew. When I'm finally used to him sitting quietly, he takes off with the thread from the back of the machine!
    He lays on the fabric I'm trying to sew or wants to lay "in" the machine (harp). Or where I'm trying to press something on the ironing centre. One day I ironed a spot away from the ironing work centre and put him on it to convince him to have a nap ...

    My cat has to go to jail if I lay stuff out. He hates being isolated-even if he gets a room, bed, litter box, food, water. But that's the price he pays for rearranging my blocks.
