It is below zero, 6" snow predicted, and Oliver has a new companion, an incredibly soft, winsome stuffed sheep we saw at Kohl's and couldn't resist for him. Things are a bit bleak here right now, nothing to see out the windows, just Mom quilting and Dad on the laptop. Entertainment is a must for a 2-year-old spunky cat.
It took awhile after these photos were taken, but soon he had learned to carry it around, kill it, attack it, play with it, lots of leaping in the air. I'll try and get an action shot but it won't be easy. He also likes to sit near the sheep with his paw on the sheep's paw.
The frozen sewing machine is working perfectly, and back in its old spot across from my quilting machine, the Bernina 730. However, that took a lot of sniffing and investigating by Oliver and now he sits there and naps and enjoys the oil aromas while I quilt.
Sometimes I come in the room from a break and see a round bowling ball shape under the quilt in the machine, and have to oust him from underneath it before I begin.
He only eats the thread on the machine now occasionally. I have to watch him carefully or he gets into major trouble very fast.
I still can't post on the "comments" section here, hoping that problem will clear, but I do read and appreciate everything you post.
Stay warm, stay safe, spring will come. Meanwhile, keep quilting! Your work does get better,
