My sewing assistant and I spent some quality time in the sewing room last night.
Sewing is hard work for a kitty! There are scissors and seam rippers to knock off the table. There’s a pin cushion that keeps disappearing and showing up in a new spot as the seamstress tries to keep it away from me. There’s the needle in the machine going up and down that might be fun to catch. Then when the ironing is happening, there are so many warm places to stretch out.
And, for the seamstress, having a kitty in the room means about half as much gets accomplished in twice as much time . . trying to keep the kitty out of the moving sewing machine, out of the way of the rotary cutter and making sure he doesn’t get between the iron and the pieces being ironed. But, he’s always purring and he’s always happy to be held and snuggled, so that makes it all worth the extra time.
All 12 of the “A” blocks have been made. Today, if I can tear myself away from knitting, I’ll get started on the “B” blocks.
