Fabric Play and Cat Chaos
I spent last night snipping and ironing and just playing with fabric. Tonight is the first night I'll go try out that quilting group and I had nothing to take to work on. So I thought I would quickly put together a couple of ideas I had for the fall cards. So out came the fabric, scissors, fusible web and came up with these. And the lovely background is my ironing board cover *G*. Of course, along the way, I had several more ideas but it was Project Runway night so they'll have to wait.
So...after all was done, I had a bunch of little snippets of fabric, too big to throw away but not big enough to fold. They needed a little box to live in. So off to the box stash and I grabbed this white box and went around tossing pieces in it, then curled up to watch tv.
Crash. I heard stuff falling in the dining room and discovered two of the cats on the table just going wild. Rolling, meowing, scooting everything off the table. Except the box. It was empty and they were in it, on it, around it. WTF? I gathered everything up and then realized. Oh yeah, last winter that box held catnip mice that I'd made for cat friends. I guess that scent never leaves. Sorry kids!
