    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

    i put a cat bed attached to my window and above the heater for my ancient cat simon. he's a talker and he always asks me where i'm going to be so he can be with me. he isn't interested in any of my fabric, just my company. i made a small quilt to cover his hanging bed, and he loves it. the dogs have quilts on the floor made just for them, but they like the sofa even more. pure joy for them is a blanket or quilt on the sofa or floor that they can make into a nest. they also have floor pillows they can sleep on. neither one is interested in my quilts. the only exception is tiger. he insisted on sleeping on my son's quilt whenever i wasn't working on it. he hasn't shown any interest in other quilts. i must obviously, be doing something wrong! LOL
