Crafts + Cats = Frustration

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I've never really been frustrated with the boys before, but there's a first time for everything. I was making a wreath for my front door, and the flowers and ribbon and wreath form were just too much for the little ones. I swear they didn't leave me alone for a second while I was working on it, unravelling ribbon, chewing on the grape-vine form and attacking the flowers. I guess my frustration-free craft days are gone. It's a good thing they're cute.

I gave up on doing things. The cats always want to "help" & there is no such thing as a "cat free" room in my house.

I can't decide if they thought they were helping, or just wanted to make a mess. I'm leaning towards the "making a mess" theory. Either that or they were mad that my complete attention was not focused on them, as it should have been.

Ah yes. I'm planning to set up my sewing machine sometime soon in my bedroom. I'm sure there will be plenty of scenes like this in my apartment. Though I won't think it's as funny when it happens to me!

*GASP* There's your problem right there! Your attention was not fully focused on them! Sheesh!

I do all kinds of crafts, etc. I always joke when I do a project outside of my home like at my church that I don't know how to work without a cat "helping" me. They love when I cut stuff out of cardboard. They like to lay on the scraps. If I'm knitting or crocheting I can count on the dog laying down on my yarn. It's a pain but it does prevent the cats from pouncing it.

I've pretty much given up on quilting. Yards of fabric laying on the floor is far too much temptation to my girls. It's hysterical to watch them play, but I don't get any work done! If it's something that absolutely needs to get done, I have to lock them out of the basement (where my sewing room is.) Then I get to listen to them whine, paw and throw themselves against the basement door. Oh joy!

I'm interested in learning how to knit, but given that Stumpy and Smudge love to pounce on ANYTHING that moves, I'm not sure it's a good idea... A friend knits everywhere she goes, she cannot sit somewhere without knitting - except at our house. After about 5 minutes, she just gives up and puts it away...

Maybe I could give them a little squirt with the water bottle when she comes over and try to get her knitting in preparation for when I want to....

Hee hee... I always have to vacuum any project I work on. My last project was all my wedding invitations. I did iris folding, which uses A LOT of double stick tape... and a good bit of cat fur got in with the tape.
