Good and not so good moments in the old sewing room.

Last weekend the weather was rainy.  Perfect for hanging in the sewing room gittin creative.  I pulled out the 4 and a half inch squares I had made from  my scraps and started playing around.  Hmmm, this isn't right.
Let me introduce you to my leetle friend, Mr. Seam Ripper.
Better.  The one on the right was first and I'm not liking it much.  The left is more like it.
So I continued on.  I really love  this block. Fabrics with words are so fun. 
Surprize!  A tiny pinwheel.
And a star from the Bonnie Hunter workshop.
My first batch and there will be many more to come.  I really need to fix that first one, though.
We have four cats.  Some day when my son gets his own place, he'll take one with him. (Thank goodness, she's a bully.)  Two of the cats like to hang in my sewing room.  I've discovered that I need to 'cat proof' this space.  Last week I came in to see that a glass dish with some shells had mysteriously fallen to the floor.  Hmmm.  Today as I sat here reading some blogs, there was a CRASH.  This little storage container for my Bernina accessories got knocked to the floor by Daisy.  The doors popped completely off and my 'feet' flew everywhere.
I scooped it all up and put it back together.  Then I saw this!
Geez!  Apparently, the Bernina box hit my ruler on it's trip to the floor.  Darn!  At least the broken piece stayed kinda in place thanks to the non-skid vinyl on the back.
Who needs duct tape?  I fixed it with masking tape.  Ta dah!  This should  hold me for a while.  I
Just as I repaired the ruler (after reassembling the Bernina box), I heard a noise and looked around.  Now what, Daisy?  She was thinking of bedding down in my basket of neutrals until I gave her the evil eye.
"Did I do that?"   Yes, Daisy, you did.  She got her claw stuck on some of my little blocks and 'flung' them out of the basket.   Looks like I need to give this kitty a cozy place in here so she'll stay off my things.  Either that or keep cleaning up, lol.   Oy!
