    Kola the cat has a $2300 hammock!!!

    Kola decided to use my LA that is loaded with a quilt as her personal hammock.

    I make it a habit to cover my work with a sheet for just such occurrences. As you know a cat will sleep anywhere the opportunity arises.

    Only one of my 3 cats is allowed in my sewingroom because he usually just curls up somewhere and sleeps. He likes my batting box or my lap the best. Have you ever tried to sew with a cat on your lap? Not easy. I could see him sleeping on a LA if I had one.

    Way back when I use to hand quilt, it was easy to find one of the two cats I had at that time sleeping on my PVC type quilt frame. I would have to tighten the quilt before I could start quilting again.

    Yeah, I am going to have to tighten the quilt back up when I resume working on this quilt. It's a practice quilt, but I don't want cat hair on it just yet......LOL

    It seems that Kola has very good taste in beds. Perhaps she can get a job as a bed tester for Temperpedic (sp)? LOL!!
    Lack of planning on your part does NOT nessessitate an emergency on my part.

    My spoiled rotten cat decided to tear all the batting out of the quilt I had loaded on the long arm.
    Had to unload and throw the batting away. Luckily I had not started quilting it yet.
    Lesson learned.

    She hasn't gotten that bad yet. I do keep a sheet over my work to keep the cat hair off it. If I have a big project laid out all over the main sewing room I close the door when I am not in there.

    You are a true cat lover to plan for such an occurance. We do love our fur babies, don't we?

    I know this is not quite the same buts it got to do with sewing, when I was a Child long ago.. my mom had a box full of sewing patterns in my closet our momma cat decided that was were she was going to have her kittens! I found them in the morning to the sound of little mewing s, of course the patterns all had to be tossed. That same cat also did the same thing in under my covers at my feet while I slept sure felt funny to put my feet down on wet kittens! lol.
    May Your Life Be Full of Charity and Love.

    I know. My son's cat tried to get on the I had loaded on my Innova with Red Snappers (clamps) to take a nap. Needless to say she was too heavy for the clamps. She and the quilt came down with a crash. Luckily, she wasn't hurt and the backing for the quilt was salvageable (it just pulled some threads, but didn't tear).

    I have put the quilt back up and just put some things on the table so she can't get back up, though I think she's not too interested in getting up there anymore.
