Or on it! Whether it's piles of felted wool waiting to be packaged, fabric grouped in a bin, or stacks of quilts out for display, Mieux knows how to make herself comfortable. The sewing table is just about her favorite place to be....but only when I'm working. Shooshing her off just doesn't work. She silently slinks back as soon as I'm not looking. I've recently decided to use to human psychology with Mieux and "redirect" her to a better place. Her very own felted wool Cat Pad.
I asked my friend and wool dyer, Finch, for some scrap wool. She dug deep into her recently purchased wool remnants bag and pulled out some narrow pieces that we didn't know how we would use because they were a heavier weight of wool, and filled with thread stitches joining separate pieces together. A few days later she produced this lovely agean blue wool felt. I was ready to start. Mieux couldn't wait to help. I improvised using the characteristics of the pieces. There were dye lot labels that read "BE", spiky fringe, and lines of white joining stitches. To this I added a few kitty instructions to BE PLAYFUL and BE SLEEPY.
Sometimes, Mieux uses her cat pad.
And sometimes, Mieux still goes where she should not......
