Feline Assistance?

Only if you use the term loosely.  I only have two cats now, down from four.  Mollie and Merlin love textiles, and 'help' whenever they can.  The level of assistance varies .


Mollie is a quilt girl.  Here she is, trying out 'Borderlines' for size.


Oh, I like this one, Mum...



Mmm...comfy...   She later dozed off on it entirely.  Not quite what you expect for an art quilt, but...

Merlin, on the other hand, is more cosmopolitan in his tastes.  Here he is sitting on a lot of different things, simultaneously; my sofa does get a bit busy, as I spend a lot of time sitting on it.  I think he called it purrrrformance art; I called it all sorts of things, none of which were polite. 


My lino cutting stuff, is on that board, Merlin... be careful... and don't knock that box of notepaper over, or the pen... really, though, what he wanted to lie on was the small book I'd cut from hand made paper, again from Heather's parcel.  It had been folded for some time, so rather than try to iron out the creases, I used them to create another accordion book.  Which He's sitting on.  And here's the result.


That was flat, before he sat on it.  It now has a perfect impression of his bum.  Pass the iron, somebody... 

More about the work in progress tomorrow.

I enjoyed this post!!!! Aren't our 'babies' so helpful! I've almost sewn my dogs tail into a quilt so many times or have had my quilt 'stuck' because my dog was laying on part of it while I was quilting...I put their large dog bed on the table next to where my machine is...my own fault! But we need their help don't we! HA

LOL of course we do...how would we know if we're doing a good job, if we didn't have feline or canine quality control?
