Excuses Part One.

Binding.
I have an aversion to it.
Long story.
But this week I thought that I would commence binding my Soul Searching quilt.
Note I said commence not complete.
I adore this quilt and the journey that I had making it. Just love it, really odd that I love it that much, but I do.
So, the binding was made....


And stitched on...


But I couldn't finish it because...


The cat sat on it!

Don't blame the poor cat! Send them to me and I will do your bindings.

Deb said...

That's so funny....I hate binding too...but I don't have a cat! Take it from a revent finisher......finishing is better.

Shay said...

Send it on over Cardy . I love doing bindings (I also love that quilt so if you do send it to me you may not get it back for a while )

Peggy Aront said...

Shoo cat! LOL

I think it is hard to finish up a project you love...kind of like saying good bye.
I think the cat excuse could work for a day...
Good luck!

So cats help with procrastination too? The quilt is gorgeous and no wonder you have loved doing it so much...

I'll accept that one! Especially after your description of THE cat in question last week. Made me smile! :)

Cheryll said...

sunny said...

Oh sure, blame it on the poor kitty. Send the quilt to me, I love doing bindings. Can I have the cat, too?

Noela said...

It's funny I love the binding as it means I am actually going to finish the quilt. Have lots of tops in my cupboard unfinished that need quilting first. Love your post. I guess the cat is telling you he needs some of your attention. Hugs....

Mary said...

I love that quilt too! Wish we were closer - I would bind for you :)

gracie said...

I say give the kitty some needle and thread....

Louise Jane said...

That's so funny and the cat so cute. You have trained that cat well, I might try and train our dogs to do that.

loulee said...

I think that's the perfect reason for procrastinating.

Well I just hope the dog doesn't EAT your homework. Excuses, excuses.

Jenny said...

I was about to say just what wish2stitch said but glanced up... lucky....My latest homework excuse is the home printer is broken or I have lost my USB Miss.
Oh Cardy???...any excuse. Sh... don't tell anyone but I have 2 in the cupboard waiting to be bound.. Its just one of those things when you juggle time. So I better get into it too.....LOL May be we should have a little competition...

Lol, I love the look on your cat's face. With binding I just tell myself it's one stitch at a time and it will be over before i know it.
