Last evening I wasn't able to do much of anything. Not for lack of motivation...but because of obstacles preventing me from doing anything. I was set to do some computer work but my internet connection was acting all funny. I know I had a connection according to my modem but when I tried to access a web page all it would do is spin and time out. And then every once in a while it would tease me and load a page. So I gave up.

Next I decided to sketch out a new image for some designs I've been working on. Guess what happened next!

Somebody decided it was time to get some mama love. Smack in the middle of my drawing.

She quite enjoyed being there. I think she secretly knew that she was keeping me from my drawing and loved it.  Cats can sense these things you know.  They know just the moment when you really want to or need to do something and they intervene and change everything up.

Or maybe it was she knew I was drawing her on my paper and felt I'd do a better job it she came and posed for me.



  1. They remind us of what is important.
    By the way, your article in Quilting Arts was very good. I like how you use the stencils in the background.

  2. Some days are like that! At least you had the company (if not help) of that pretty little girl! :)

  3. Cats seem to know where our focus is and know how to put themselves in the center of it ... especially when they've decided it's time for us to stop doing whatever it is and pay attention to them.

  4. What a cutie that little girl is! So soft and adorable. I have the same troubles. I can really get going on my machine quilting or whatever, and a furry critter has to have a snooze on my quilt. Sometimes I can work around them, sometimes I leave them there to sleep, and pick up something else. I don't mind though.

  5. sometimes our furry friends just know when we need a "time out" hugs

  6. What a beautiful cat. My Libby does the same thing to me. She DEMANDS that I stop what I'm doing sometimes and give her some attention. I find that I usually need the break; cats are VERY intuitive.

  7. What an adorable cat ! And yes, my cats do that, too ... they love to lay down on the quilt I'm just quilting ... and yesterday, our Gina stepped into the wet watercolour ... Good think we have wood floors ;-))

  8. Your kitty is beautiful and is acting like a perfect kitty who knows how to get attention..."mama love"! Precious Purr...


I enjoy getting your comments. Thanks so much for leaving one.
