Disappearing Kittens

I went in my studio last night to finish up a project and check on Cane and Reed, who were in there visiting Trish and TJ.  The kittens were gone.  Nowhere to be found.  After searching and calling, I assumed they were napping in a pile of bags of batting scraps.  I had made a very large sewing machine cover to keep cats out of thread, pins, and anything else I didn't want them to get into along with my machine when I'm not using it.  I was proud that I could do something to keep one step ahead of the cats.  When I tried to take the cover off my machine, it wouldn't budge.  This was very strange.  Upon investigation, I found the culprits.
 It's hard to be smarter than a cat - or sometimes, even a kitten.


  1. Hi we have been following your blog for awhile now but don't always have time to comment. Funny how kittens find the best places to hide!

  2. That is so cute! They're adorable under the cover.

    BTW, it's such a pretty cover, too! My mom made one for my sewing machine years ago, because goddess knows I don't actually sew (she bought me a basic machine about 14 years ago, with the misguided idea that every female would like to learn to sew), but my cover is plain navy. I like yours much better!

  3. Thank you, all. The fabric is a Laurel Burch cat fabric, and I love it, too. I thought it would be stiff enough to stand by itself, but I was wrong. It still does the job, though, well, sort of. It does keep the dust off my machine. Dust, but not critters.

  4. Barb, That is an adorable picture of the kittens inside your machine cover. You should send that to a cat magazine for their annual calendar. Dar

  5. Wish I could have taken the pictures without my arm being in them. I didn't think to use something else to lift the cover.
