    I came home from work yesterday afternoon intending to spend a couple of hours handquilting, but it seems my helper had other ideas!! When I got up to make a cuppa he decided to snuggle in, and since it is winter here I just didn't have the heart to move him.

    I think it is going to take me a very long time to get this quilt finished LOL

    I think your helper needs a quilt of his own....

    Ahhhhh- he's precious. That's why we often have more than one project going at the same time - right? I mean how many can he sit on?

    I often use the floor as my design wall and my cats love to come thru there and rumple up the squares during the night.

    Isn't he cute. We had a tuxedo cat like that. Maybe he thinks the quilt is finished enough for him!!

    How cute...my little dog does the same thing...I hand quilt my quilts so if my quilt is laying around on the couch or when it is hanging off on the floor...he makes a bed out of it real quick....and then looks at me like I am being mean to him when I tell him to move...lol

    It did get worse... my other cat decided to lie next to him and gave him the evil eye to get him to move... didn't work LOL

    And, yes I have made quilts for the cats to lie on, BUT they don't like them finished. I guess finished quilts are not as much fun :)

    What a handsome helper. Where is it winter in July? I thought it would be summer everywhere in July.

    I was just going to say, "that doesn't work!" I work on a quilt forever and my baby snuggles in before I even take 2 steps, then once it's finished and lying on the bed, or the back of the couch, or where ever, nope, don't want to lay on it anymore! She wants to lay on the next one. I blame her for all my UFOs and WIPs!

    They all have homing instincts and can sniff out a quilt miles away. LOL

    It's winter in New Zealand, and very cold at the mo. Makes it a really good time to handquilt :)
