Good evening. Smitty here. My mom asked me to take over the blog this evening. She's tired after making a big dinner for eight yesterday. It wasn't bad. There were lots of people here. Even the red dot made an appearance.
Aside from that, the weekend has been booooooooorrrrring. I asked Gracie what she wanted to do. She said she wanted to take a nap.
I understand. She's old. It's hard being a kitten in a house full of grandmas and grandpas.
My mom put on my "Hungry for Angry Birds" video game. I played that for a while.
It felt kind of flat though.
The birds weren't even afraid of me. They acted like I wasn't even there...even when I bopped them with my right hook.
Later on, my mom went down to sew and Gracie and I went along to lend a paw. Gracie found the nip right away and she was useless after that.
Not me, though. I maintained purrfect sobriety. I took a look around this place and I could see that a cat was needed to keep everything lined up and opurrating correctly.
And what a tale I have to tell you!
So I kept careful watch on this thread just to make sure everything was coming off the spool correctly.
And I watched my mom sewing...looking for any pointers I might have for her. My paws have excellent pointers.
Hmmmmmmm...something doesn't seem quite right here.
I was watching and considering how she might impurrove her accuracy.
I took a really close look just to be sure I was understanding the purroblem.
Okay, I think I see what's going on here.
Let me just check these as they come off the machine.
So then I surveyed her nifty toolbox over here.
Mom, I say, You really need to switch out this stitch plate.
And you could work some of that fullness in with a stylus.
Here, I'll even sharpen it for you.
Things started going a little more smoothly then. She made these little cornerstones yesterday. I'm not sure how she did this without my help. Beginners luck, purrobably.
But with me here, she got the whole thing stitched together. And let me tell you, this is the weirdest looking cat I've ever seen.
She has a whole bunch of these weird looking cats, although that blue one seems to have his act together.
She went into the closet and pulled out some more. How did I not know about these cats?
Then she said she was going to make a quilt sandwich, and I said, If it's tuna, count me in! I'm starving!
Oh, a different kind of sandwich, although I'm not sure who would want to eat it. I'm not that hungry. Here's the back she made.
And then she put this other piece on. She says she's going to start quilting it tomorrow. I should probably be around to help with that.
Oh, and I almost forgot. She started stitching on this stitchery a couple of days ago. I asked her to stitch the cat first.
And she told me to be sure to link up to:
So I'll do that, but then...it's nap time for me. It's been a busy day.
And I know the purrfect place for it.
