Landlords. Mine.

From Crazy as a Loom

"I told ya, I ain't moving....so just tie your fringe, and learn to live with it."

(Do you catch that LOOK???? OMG.
I am sure now that these four cats run the studio, and they just let me come and weave, and ACT like it is mine.
That's the REAL deal.)

Well, the rug is pretty, anyway. You can tell, I am still thinking spring.

OK, now I am going to take a picture of that pretty red and pink Valentine's rug.......uh, excuse me.
Could you move??

"In a minute, I'm just laying down here, for crying out loud. What's your rush? I'm liking this color. How do I look????"

"I am not doing anything, I'm not, I swear it. THIS time, I am INNOCENT."

"Likely story, don't believe her. She's up to something."

So this is how it really is. They are in charge, and they just put up with me. They are waiting for me every morning, to be sure, but that is because I am in charge of the FOOD. After that, they follow me around on their schedule, and they RULE.
They have their own little pecking order, and I am part of it.
I just didn't want to admit it.
But tis true.

It's always good to know your place in the pecking order, and to know that your job is to weave beautiful, soft mats for their precious bodies. SO CUTE!

I can see that! :-)

I'll tell you a secret no one knows. The Cat is the only animal I've ever been near that made me feel stupid while it looked at me... disdainfully, may I add.

This is news? They own us, cats do. And I wouldn't have it any other way. Love that first shot and those colours are just wonderful.

I could do without the dogs, but Ian couldn't. He could do without the cat, but I couldn't. Who would help me in the studio? Certainly, not the dogs who are at the fence barking at who knows what.

Oh gosh Hilary...

Just think: if they could have a charge card, order delivered cat food over the phone, and operate a can opener .... YOU would be locked outta that loom house!

Thanks, Hilary! I certainly needed the happy cat post this week. They are all beautiful, but your calico is absolutely stunning!
Who knows what kind of foolish mess we'd make of our lives if we didn't have cats to boss us around....gently, of course.

My landlord is a Yorkie. She won't come when she's called---my dad always says she might as well be a cat. I love her, but she is bossy. She doesn't like my loom---I think it is too noisy for her, and not so good for lap-laying.

Ms. Hilary, thanks for popping over and for the comment. So glad to have found your weaver's blog with kitties! Bonus!I joined the Weaver's Guild here which is really quite a group of fabric artists and enthusiasts of all sorts. I am intrigued with weaving and may try it...but at the moment I am stuck (get it?) into needle and wet felting- love the sculptural advantage of needle felt. LOVE love LOVE your weaving!

Welcome to my world.
