Compromise is often a good solution. Sometimes compromise takes unusual forms. Like when you think you can sneak in a quick basting of a throw size quilt while the cat naps. The problem is cats seem to have a seventh or seventeenth sense about quilts and sewing and all the things that go into them. Just as soon as I had the batting laid down over the backing, someone was up and eager to enjoy the new floor covering/cat bed/quilt. No amount of cajoling or treats or new cardboard boxes could keep him away.
There was only one thing to do. Give him the rest of the unused batting. Of course, you first have to pretend you really want to work with that piece and not what is already laid out on the floor. If you aren’t interested, neither is the cat. Felines are hard to fool. Once he was convinced, he curled up in his cotton batting nest and I was able to finish pinning. Oh the things we do for our furry family.
Speaking of families, we have some coming into town for Thanksgiving. Lots of cleaning, organizing, straightening, etc. going on here. The creative front is too quiet for me but it is only temporary. A little hot chocolate and a book may get me through.
I hope you all enjoyed a relaxing weekend and are looking forward to the coming week.
