@Willowe  if my sister pulled that I would seriously make her pay to replace all of the craft supplies.

I have been working on a way I've found to make some epic Harry Potter scarves. It takes time and a lot of yarn. I grabbed my yarn and brought it down. I went in the kitchen to get a sandwich for lunch. I came back and there was yarn all over my couch. My cats had taken it and dragged it everywhere.

We had a mouse plague a little while ago...little sods destroyed so much stuff.

-chewed the corners of about 50% of my artwork in an A3 folder
-nested in one of my fabric boxes
-peed and pooped on 90% of my fabric stacks
-chewed and dragged some expensive embroidery threads into said nest.
-chewed up no less than three toilet rolls, which make an incredible mess [just found another I missed the other day...looked like it had snowed!]
-and chewed a massive hole into our very expensive self inflating camping mattress which is now irreparable and needs replacing  Cry

Interestingly enough, pets learned from day one to never piss me off with my crafting...my husband took a little longer. He had his stash for cosplay, I had mine for all of that and more. He dumped almost six. thousand. beads. All over our apartment's carpet. Six. Thousand. Seed Beads. I nearly strangled him. But solved that urge by handing him a roll of duct tape and telling him to pick them all up, or he could move to the couch for good....

@Willow. Oh. Oh gawd. I am so, so sorry for you.

Okay my sister moved out recently on very bad terms she dug through my stuff and took some of it with her. And apparently she thought some of my plaid fabric that was for a skirt was a skirt of hers and now all I have is the waistband part of it. Sad The worst part was it was a birthday present from my boyfriend.

My boy cat often mistakes piles of fabric on the floor (especially in a shallow, plastic-bottomed container) for a litter box. He's peed in my scrap bin and my laundry basket multiple times. He never pees outside his real litter box otherwise! We do our best not to leave the tempting piles around, but it still happens occasionally.

I FINALLY found a way to get the smell out--wash the fabric with a cup of vinegar in the washing machine. Now I don't have to throw away the fabric that got peed on. The clothes smell vinegary for a little while, but totally normal after another washing with detergent.

thank goodness for this thread! I was soooo angry last week and hanging on to it too much, so maybe writing it down here will help me let it go.
I received the most wonderful delicately knitted white dishcloth in the Woodland Creatures 2016 sw ap. I decided to use it for the fir st time. Brought it down to the kitchen (which I share with the other 12 renters), did my dishes, laid the thing to rest and begin to dry on the counter, then once I had packed up my dishes and was about to bring them back to my room, i turn around to find the dishcloth is GONE!! the lurking drunk who is jobless, thus constantly tidying up around the place had thrown it away. I confronted him, he said, "Oh, I thought it was a paper towel." I was glad to get it back, but fishing it out of the garbage, tangled in old food and unidentifiable crap was awfully sad.
then I ironed  and marked a cut pillowcase for another project, cleaned up after myself in the upper commonroom, but forgot I had one of the pieces laid carefully over a chair so as not to wrinkle up again. The landlord came within minutes, cleaned that room, and began to leave. I remembered I may have left the fabric piece out there, it was nowhere to be seen. I caught him before he left. "oh, yeah," he said, "i did not know what that was....." the turd. Instead of leaving it there for the person to retrieve who OBVIOUSLY FORGOT IT, he added it to his rag pile in the cleaning closet and I had to wash it because it smelled like Pledge.
Arrrrgggghhhhh!!
