Forced Break...

I've been working on a monochromatic piece for our next GOE challenge and I'm at the machine quilting stage.  I went down to the kitchen to get a coffee, which I had planned to sip on while quilting, but when I returned to the studio I saw that Arbour, our cat, had other ideas. Obviously I couldn't quilt with her there, and I hated to disturb the spoiled brat... so I enjoyed a bit of a coffee break, checked my email, and just relaxed for a while before getting back to my quilting.  I did have to move her though because if left alone she would have likely slept there all day.

Arbour seems to have 'new bed' radar.  Any time there is anything new, whether it's in my studio or else where in the house (i.e., a freshly washed towel that hasn't been put away yet, or a new shirt my husband bought and left on the newel post to remind him to take it upstairs, etc.), if she perceives it to be comfortable  it becomes her new favourite sleeping place until it is moved or something newer shows up to replace it!

My husband Bill has been recently pointing out just how close the words pets and pest are...  (see my final comment in this previous post LOL)

  1. I must share with you. You made the wonderful quilt for me when i "pet sat" Arbour when she was a tiny kitten. I enjoy that quilt every evening when I curl up on the couch to watch TV. Now my little Grand daughter Macy has it to roll around on when she visits. I will send you a pictures of Macy on the quilt the next time she visits. Hope you are well--your works is outstanding.

    1. Thanks Karen. I'm so glad to hear that you are still enjoying the quilt and I love that Macy plays on it too. I'd love to see pictures of her on it. I've seen some pictures of her on FB and she is just adorable! I can tell you are totally loving being a grandma. So wonderful!

    1. Thanks Leah. And good for you. I'm still a ways away from completion...partly due to Arbours nap schedule. I've got a lot of other things going on too so I'm just slowly doing a bit of this and a bit of that...

  3. Well, I call that help ;-)! My 3 tomcats always want to "help" me when I am crafting or tell me when it's time for a short or longer break!!
