Marcel is the newest member of our family, he's nearly 8 months old and adorable as all hell. But don't be fooled, he's an absolute ratbag! Like all kittens, he gets into everything and often tries to grab the material as it's going through the machine. Talk about potential for disaster! The above pic was taken this afternoon while I was trying to finish my 40s blouse. Someone was trying to let me know it was time for food, but for this little guy anytime is food time, which made it quite difficult to get my hand sewing done.
At 6 years old, Flynn is the elder statesman of the family and is less than impressed with our new addition. While he is now far too mature to 'help' with my sewing, as a kitten he used to pull the pins out of my garments when left unattended (even for a second!) and could often be found sitting on top of the machine while I was sewing. These days, our self-appointed security officer prefers to guard the equipment but the rustling of pattern pieces always gets his attention.
So readers, how do your creatures like 'help' with your sewing? Are any of them as curious as my boys? I'd love to hear your stories.
