Ms Kitty- leave that loom alone!

Ms Kitty, the feline Queen of the Studio is convinced that anything new in the studio is there for one reason.

To amuse her, of course.

So, last week, when a loom suddenly appeared in the studio, without her fore-knowledge (I forgot to warn Ms Kitty that I had indulged myself and adopted a rather large loom- oops) she assumed that I must have brought it home for her!

She took great delight in using the baby blanket that magically grew on the loom as her personal nest.

Ms Kitty refused to stay off the weaving…. so, I had to cover the baby blanket and the warp with cloths and hope for the best.  Silly old cat!

I think that I will cut cardboard panels to try to protect the warp and the weaving from Ms Kitty’s explorations from now on. We shall see…..

In spite of Ms Kitty’s assistance, I have finished the first project from the new loom… a baby blanket for my niece’s almost here baby:

Old Bears quite like it for their tea parties, so if my niece doesn’t, then Old Bears will happily give it a home…. and perhaps they can convince Ms Kitty to leave the loom and join them in a cup of tea….
