Yesterday I found baskets for storing my linen in the sewing room. They weren’t exactly what I wanted but they were there and they weren’t expensive so . . perfect! I wasn’t sure if they were going to be deep enough to hold the 36 and 40 count stashes because I have more of that. They’re not. I’ll need two for the 36 and two for the 40 but what I have now is probably the most I’ll ever have. Stop laughing!
When I got the baskets out last night to start filling them, I expected Boots would decide they were the perfect box for a comfy kitty nap and that’s exactly what he did.
I don’t know if it was on purpose or accidental but he had his back to me and no amount of trying to convince him to turn and face me or the camera worked. When I talked to him, he put his ears back like he was thinking of being a mean kitty.
I moved over to the side of the chair and made enough weird noises that he looked up at me.
Knowing how cats like boxes, I figured he can have it. I took Boots and the basket down, put the quilt back up in the chair, put the basket on top of the quilt and he hopped right back up in the box. I hardly see how that’s terribly comfortable since it’s were and kinda scratchy fabric but, I’m not a cat so what do I know.
I do know I need to run by Tuesday Morning again and get a few more baskets.
The baskets have some exposed wire in the bottom and I didn’t know if that might discolor the linen so I put a towel in them and then folded the towel over the linen in case Boots decides that might be a better basket for sleeping. I don’t have to get into these baskets often – just when I’m starting a new project – so I may come up with a better way to cover them to keep Boots off them. I could always put a bolt of fabric over them but I was wanting it to look pretty. Any ideas??
