Mom is usually the one telling you about HER rug hooking exploits. I thought today in the interest of fairness, I would put a paw to the keyboard and tell my part of the story.
I know that cats have a reputation for just lying around in the sun (hasn't been much of THAT lately!) and doing nothing but sleeping. But I, in fact, am the productive one here! My hooking skills are finely honed. And why wouldn't they be??? Have you looked closely at a cat's claws lately? What do they resemble? LITTLE HOOKS!!!
But rughooking etiquette requires that I lay aside my own more than adequate hooks and take up this one with the slippery wooden handle.
Isn't it nice to have a hobby where you can lay on a nice round comfortable pad while working? As a cat, I'm particularly fond of round shapes. Come on, you pesky little tool! Get up here where I can work with you!
Now where shall I start? How about along that little border.
Every once in a while I have to check underneath to make sure I didn't miss any places. I also get kind of crazy and excited when I'm hidden under there! It makes me WILD!!! Cats, you may not know, have very vivid imaginations.
After such a productive day I need to lay and contemplate my work. I think I did an excellent job and am rather proud of myself!
Now I think I'll go and see if I can find some sun....
Purrrrr, purrrrrr, purrrrrrr!
