The best laid plans


There are not many days in a year when I don't touch a needle, but this is one of them.
Not for any particular reason - it is just the way this day went.
I have 2 quilts to bind and 4 DJ blocks to make, nada done.
I have thumbed some books and magazines, rested and given my desk/sewing table a Sort & Fling, and when I could have sewn this little lady happened on my sewing table


Paws on keyboard - this is my story and I am sticking to it:

I have my own recipe on how to make my people behave.
I teach by the manual
How To Please And Play Precious Me 101.
I give cat-upuncture and cuddles generously on my own schedule.
All claws and teeth one second and all fur, licks and purr the next.
I have full control over the house quilter, her sewing table and her computer as you see.
Who can stand a cuddly fur ball like myself ?
I am the queen of two households and I take full advantage - purr purr purr

I love your kitty! What a sweet looking cat. The quilts will get done. A day off to recharge the batteries is often helpful.

She is getting so big!! Definitely the little princess kitty insisting on you NOT doing your work, LOL. Seriously, you needed the break--admit it.

She is absolutely adorable! I have a calico cat at home in the States named Flicka. I'm trying to resist the temptation to adopt one here because I don't know how long I will be here. Thanks for sharing yours!

That is one very cute cat. Thanks for the pictures - I'm sure the quilts will get done when they are ready to be done.

Purr purr from Frida . I do the same at my home. I am the boss!!! When I meow they feed me, cuddle me and brush me. I am the boss over mum's sewingroom. I sleep there everynight. Sometimes on her quilts, but she has started to hide them :( Have to meow a bit more now

This is one cute little lady! I see why you have been distracted from quilting.

With a furry face like hers, it's no wonder she's mistress of two households! She is a precious little thing for sure :)

What great pictures of the bundle of joy at your home.........

Two quilts ready to bind? You are amazing.

That is such an adorable kitten. Sounds like a real diva!

Bonnie said...

When I first glanced at the top quilt, it almost looked like pizza slices! What fun!
Your little kitty is precious. She not only entertains you, she will also keep your blood pressure down just by sitting in your lap and purring. Amazing animals.

A day with no sewing? Is that like a day with no sunshine? Hope you got some sewing in today.
