Thanks Annie. Very helpful. I guess i am done quilting for the night?
Cats are great help, arent they? Last time i made a quilt (years ago), it was a solid black CAT that was the problem. Luckily, Annie cant jump on ironing boards, doesnt shed, and doesnt sit on my sewing table in the way of where i push the fabric after sewing.Haha. At least she doesn't shed. My cat lay down and went to sleep on my face mask cutouts the other day.
First non dog sewing project since i got her - she might be confused.How kind of you to make a nice bed for her on the floor
Honestly- she is almost 2, and i havent done anything big enough i need floor space since getting her, or anything requiring more than an hour or two. My previous puppy proofing strategy was to keep everything up on a table, she ignores things on table, and didnt seem particularly overwhelmed by it, just occasionally interrupts me to say i am boring and focusing on the wrong thing - she is far more interestimg than some noisy machine. I suppose you could crate Basil while you sew .Does Annie get into your thread or needles? What's your system of poodle proofing your sewing stuff?
I haven't taken my machine out or 4 boxes of altering related fabric/tools/etc since I got Basil because I'm afraid her puppy curiosity and the excitement of new stuff in the environment would be too stimulating.
I started Annie helping gardening as a puppy. She loves to 'help'. Unfortunately she is convinced that daylilies are weeds! My favourite Annie gardening story was when i tied her to a tree as a puppy, while i planted 20 something transplanted daylilies, looked back, and discovered she was methodically going to each hole, pulling them out, and dragging them into a pile under the tree. Luckily daylilies are edible, but was not happy!LOL, when I am outside weeding I'll sometimes let Renn run about with his ball and toss it a few times in-between, but he has now decided to help me and will pull weeds, or grass out, he does't discriminate between them.
