The pet or the boss?

Just a quick hour at the cutting board and machine today. I have 2 weeks to get a kids 'I spy' quilt done. I had bought pre-cut 6" squares but when they arrived I found that they were not square. I've trimmed them up and added some extras from my stash. It's getting there, just need to sew the rows together and add some borders, then quilt it, then bind it. I guess there is a bit to go :)

I had my usual helper today. Whenever I sit at my machine a little someone makes a leap for my lap. It's not so helpful when I have to get up every few minutes to arrange the blocks on my 'design board' (read: floor) and gather others. That means for a lot of leaping on and jumping down. We came to a compromise after a while and she sat at the back of the chair. It was better but it meant I found myself being very careful so I didn't disturb her.

Ahhh to have a cats life!
