Threaded View

Time to sew darts into the bra front lying on the leaf of the treadle.
Remove cat, drop onto floor, examine pattern, go to sewing room to
fetch chair.  Remove cat, drop onto bed, un-pin pattern, carry pattern
into sewing room.  Remove cat, throw onto bed, examine the lines
faintly marked in easily-removed chalk, go to sewing room for
self-removing marking pen.  Discover that a human not only can
pronounce the Cat word for "I am totally fed up and will now proceed
to eat your liver," but will sometimes spontaneously do so.  

It didn't stick.  Al is now relaxing on the treadle leaf -- but my
sewing is in here, waiting for me to clear a spot on the ironing board
and press it.

To have a cat is to have help.  Whether you want it or need it, or not.
  The cat makes the executive decisions.

I miss those days! :(  Tickles used to supervise me very closely while I was
sewing.  And there was NO moving her when she picked a spot for the day.
lol  She had better snap back to original position than brand new elastic.
heh heh

Just a word of warning about Cats and sewing.
Be careful to keep your threads secure. Kitties love to play with and
apparently eat thread, string, well I guess most anything but thread is a
particular hazard.
They pull the thread into their mouths and swallow then it can get wound
around their tongue and get caught. Now this thread acts like a little saw
inside and starts working at the intestines.
This is serious and requires surgery to fix it. Very expensive ordeal
assuming you want to keep the cat.
I know this from personal experience. When we brought the sick kitty to the
vet first thing she did was look for string attached to the tongue.

I also have to be careful to put my Grabbit pin dish into a drawer or
turn it upside down when I'm not using it.    Al likes to pick up the
pins and drop them back onto the magnet.

  My two are not interested in playing with the thread or pins...  Nice
big rolly beads, the odd covered button, yes.  Or possibly an empty
thread reel if we roll it for them... Chewing the other end of the
marking or drafting pencil or the quick-unpick when I'm using it, is
fun, too.  But mostly they like to nest in the fabric, making sure it's
nice and comfy.

At least Al puts them back on the Grabbit. I switched to using a magnet from
an old disk drive because it's strong enough that Corrigan the Incorrigible
can't get the pins pried off.
