Don’t Tell Myles

H and her girlfriend have a cat. Meet Annie. She’s very shy but so sweet. Here she is laying on a rug my mother made*.

Myles suspects there is a new critter somewhere because he smells her on us. He has no idea that she is allowed on the braided rugs that he is forced to avoid. Let’s not tell him, for now anyway.

*My mother dabbled in many crafts. Braiding rugs was short lived I’m sad to say. She did a couple of seat pads and possibly just the one small rug. H has the rug and I the chair pads. H and I split the cross stitch projects. H has the embroidered clock and pillows. We split the crocheted/knit afghans. H got the braiding tools. I’m hoping one day she’ll give it a try.

  6. My mother also dabbled in lots of crafts and I treasure the items and tools I got from her. How lucky you are to be able to pass that on.

    MacKenzie: Myles, hang in there buddy. My owner plays with strange cats too. Why do they do this to us? Demand some dog treats and extra attention!

  7. Hello to Annie! I bet eventually she and Myles will get to know and love each other 🙂 How lovely for H to have some family craft heirlooms to help make her new house a home, as well as a cat!

    With my Rainbows this term we are braiding rugs “plait a mat”. We use strips of old t-shirt or pillow cases and then staple them together (for this particular activity). I’m guessing if I was making a nice one, I would have to stitch the braids?
