when cats go bad

looks as though butter wouldn't melt eh?

On Friday I had planned a full day of sewing - including putting together a quilt, making some headbands and bears.  I am very high tech here and instead of a design wall there is a design floor, for working on quilt layouts, with a sheet laid down and a stool to stand on so you get a good view of a quilt layout.  This was all done the night before - with strict instructions that children were not to walk on it.

I forgot to tell one cat that she was not to have a party on it.

I arrived in the downstairs living room on Friday morning (aka sewing room, playstation den and hang out zone) to find quilt pieces in chaos. 


(This was after I pulled the sheet back to reveal the mess she had made and tried to place a few blocks back).  The evidence - a few extra "pin holes" that had been left in the blocks. 

Under interrogation she said she was sleeping...


and that she had witnesses...


I did get some sewing done, but not as much as planned.

P.S. - I will have Sherbet Pips fabric (that Alley used as a dance floor) in store in about 2 weeks - cannot wait.

Love the colours and fabric in your quilt - please be sure to post a picture when it is finished ( Before the cat gets to it!)
