Yesterday, I don’t know what got into me . . but I woke up and said “Today is the day I am going to quilt the blue, gold and red top.” I knew that meant spending a day in the sewing room with Boots but I told myself . . I am not letting one little kitten keep me from sewing!
I also knew that once I loaded the top, I had to finish it and get it off the longarm. Leaving the batting hanging out unquilted would have been a huge mistake . . and a lot of fun for Boots.
I filled my squirt bottle and got to work!
I was surprised that Boots paid so little attention to the quilt and the batting. I was doing a panto and what did catch his attention was the laser light. He first saw it from under the machine and I knew that was going to be trouble. A couple of times he hopped up onto the table and attacked the laser light as I was following the panto. I hated to squirt him with the water bottle since we had played with him with a laser light and he wouldn’t know the difference in the one on the quilting machine versus the one we’ve been using to play with him. I gathered up all of his balls and every time I would see him fixing to jump on the quilting table, I’d toss a ball across the room. He soon lost interest in the quilting machine laser light.
At the end of the day, the top was quilted and even trimmed.
It felt good to be back in the sewing room, even with my rambunctious little buddy. The plan for today is to continue knitting on Dreambird!
