Studio Visit


Working in my studio last night, I looked down, and discovered that Oliver had made a bed out of my fabric bin.


He's not a studio cat-he comes in only occasionally, to watch cars go past the window, or to steal a pompom, to beg for supper, or nurse his paws into a shopping bag full of brown fleece-(mother, mother, is that you? we imagine him saying). But this night he chose the bin of scraps, making a nest of felt, cotton swatches, black velvet, an embroidery of mushrooms and bees.


Every time I looked up from my work, he was expanding the boundaries of cuteness, testing the limits of what one poor human can absorb-










until he decided it would no longer do, and he was gone.

OH, Amy! What a CAT! I LOVE those shared moments of utterly delicious cat-ness!
And your FABRIC box.... DIVINE!

Total cuteness!!!!

Betsey and Madhu-he is an endless parade of catness, for sure! He spends the day insisting we "talk to the paw", but then catches us off-guard with a mind numbing stretch of kittenish sweetness. The many shades of cat, I guess.

I love his legs out of the bin ! ;) Maybe a tabby's habit ? Easy sleeps exactly the same ;-))

Hi Kay! He is a cute thing...

Sybee-it must be! Solomon, my black and white cat, never sleeps this way. He always tucks, never stretches out...
