Why I Can't Finish My Quilt

There's a large, furry weight on my quilt, anchoring the cloth so that it won't go through my sewing machine.
This weighty thing also takes lightning-swift swipes at the thread, the needle, and my hand, which disturbs the sewing zen.
It only disappears when the long, unattached binding strip, trailing across the desk and floor, attracts its attention, and its claws.
I love my Spock-cat.

This is a great excuse! Wish I had such a good one.

Hee, this must mean the quilt is a success already.

What a sweet picture. Cats and quilts just go together, don't they?

oh he's cute!

by the way, you were picked in the random drawing on my blog contest at knitplayground.blogspot.com.

Let me know if you still want the yarn, which is a lovely Patons Merino in two colors. And email me your address so I can ship, to ericab317(at)yahoo(dot)com.

Thanks!
