How Is This Helping?
I have a cat that is sort of like a dog. He likes to follow me around the house and investigate anything I do. He is not so fond of following me around the farm, because the work I do there is generally loud and trees and bushes tend to go flying in the air. I am on my own there.
Both cats like it when I am in the craft room, because the door is usually shut and now it is open. New stuff to look at and sit upon. In the winter I have a little space heater and cats love something warm.
I am in the middle of a quilt, so there is an iron to investigate. The room is too small to set up an ironing board, so I have a table top ironing pad for the counter. They like to jump up to check it out and then I have to jump up and keep them from burning themselves.
There is also lots of cloth to sit on. I have to move them carefully so that they don't rip it when I take them off. When I get up to cut or pin something, they like to take my chair so that I can't sit down and sew.
Today I had to go to another room to lay out the quilt. I am cutting and sewing on the last of the borders. They are quite long and I needed to lay them out to measure the exact length . Not only did Rhett (because he is a handsome, charming, rascal) sit on and crawl under the fabric, but he chased and bit my measuring tape.
