Now I know why my thread is always on the floor



I've been trying to figure out why my thread is always on the floor and here's the reason. This is our first cat - so I'm not use to their ways - and I don't like him on the furniture. He (Jinx) must have heard me coming and tried to get off my sewing table - but didn't make it in time.

For vintage thingies thursday I am showing this pincushion that my Aunt Lee made many years ago. I've used it since I was a girl and first learned to sew. She did beautiful crewel work, embroidery, sewed dresses for us and taught me to sew. She took me to my first fabric shop - which I still remember as a wonderful experience - but isn't all fabric shopping?

What a beautiful pincushion and kitty! Jinx looks exactly like my first kitty Pumpkin! I miss her so. Be careful of the thread though as kitties love to play and then eat it. It is not a good thing.
