Do you know how hard it is, to live in a cat-household, and do sewing all the time? (guidelines say, never leave a rubberband or a string over 4" on the floor or any place a cat can reach it) I have no idea how many times I've had  foot of string left over from sewing, and then had to cut it up in to 3" bits to toss it. Probably a million extra snips by now. Smiley
Cats are cool, but string magnets!

this isn't sewing related but my cat is bad
REAL BAD
my craft area is in a loft area above the living room. she likes to steal my pens, pencils or whatever... and drop them down to the livingroom area below.
now my living room has pens, paper bags, pieces of floral stems, raffia, felt and junk just laying all over the floor.
i kinda just give up.

My two cats (or "angst weasels" as I call them due to the sheer malevolent evil they come up with together) love to help with my projects. By "help" I of course mean pulling bobbins and spools out of my sewing machine and tangling them through the entire apartment, trying to attack scissors while I cut fabric, sitting on fabric while I'm sewing it, gnawing onthe sewing machine itself, or putting bottlecaps in said machine (one of them plays fetch with her bottlecaps).

Not craft related, but the two of them used to climb on chairs, pull thumbtacks out of the walls, then place them in my shoes.

I LOVE my cats but one of them likes to sit, scratch, play under, play on top of my fabric.

Her favourite toy is also my tape measure.

She is just too adorable that it means I lose like half an hour of crafting time as Im too busy playing with her.

When I first started crocheting a few weeks ago, my two younger cats just LOVED to try to eat the yarn while I crocheted.  That's lost it's lure, I think, because I keep pushing them away.  Instead, they wait until I'm sleeping, then go into my yarn crate, grab a small ball of yarn (usually from a frogged thrift-store sweater), and unravel it in the dining room.  They're careful to loop it around as much crap as possible, and then to tangle it so that it takes me at least a half hour just to FREE the yarn.  They sit and watch, quite satisfied, when I do this. 
I also have to cut up any stray strings of thread or yarn.  My youngest cat is a string eater.  Have you ever caught your cat with a poopy string hanging out his butt and then had to pull it out?  Even more fun is the time when the cat managed to free it himself (or with the help of the other younger cat), flinging poo over THREE rooms, then playing with the string so that I had to mop the floors too.  I can't tell you how overjoyed I was about that.  Especially since it happened overnight and I woke up to that mess.  Mmmm, the smell of cat poo in the morning.

This is my cat "helping" with a sewing project. He would do this every time I laid out fabric, paper, or anything on the floor.  Sadly he died just before Christmas, so it just won't be the same next time I make something...

ive been told that you should never pull it, just let it come out on it own, you could cause a lot of damage...

why are cats so helpful?

inquiring minds want to know Smiley
