The cat sat on the sewing

Hello. If you want to get on with a sewing project, put the cat out of the room and close the door. Yesterday afternoon Mayze was in and out, and up and down, like a fiddlers elbow. I'd get a few stitches done and back she came again.
'Wadaya doin, you've missed a bit there. I want to sit on here, stop sewing.' 
Last night it was Heidi's turn. 'This sewing lark is so boring, I'm falling asleep.'

No wonder I'm not getting on very well with it, all the interruptions. Here's a little bit so far, shades of green. Strips of fabric twisted and put through the machine on a zigzag stitch. Sewn on the fabric with a couching stitch. It will be a long while until it's anywhere near finished at this rate.


The parsnips were turned into a big pan of parsnip curry. That's my dinner for three days. I fancy going for a walk tomorrow, but the forecast is gales and rain, I'll see what it's like in the morning, might have to resort to plan B.

A short one tonight, sees ya tomorrow. Toodle pip.

  2. Ha ha reminds me of my two cats, as soon as they see anything that looks like a piece of fabric they think it's a new bed just for them.

  3. Ben acts like that as soon as I get the crochet out, if it is too small for him to get on he tries to sit on the wool.

  4. Thank goodness my dog doesn't get up on the table to 'interrupt', I am sure he would if he could! I have had the same with cats in the past too.

  5. Really love that effect with the fabric. Looks a bit complicated to do. Well, if it takes a while, I'm sure it will be worth the effort.

  6. Love the attitude of the cats. Can't wait to see what you are creating with your sewing. The cats obviously could care less.

  7. I hope your weather is better than ours here in Northern Ireland. It's cold and freezing cold (literally lol).

  8. Like your phone - is it an original 60's/70's one?

    1. Hello. Yes it's genuine, not a replica, maybe even older. It is fully working having had new insides put it. It has a really loud ring.

  9. Nothing my dog likes better than to sit on my lap when it stops me doing something else!
