Yet another new place to sit.

It has been quite a while since I’ve had a kitten. I had forgotten how quickly they can figure out to get up to mischief. This is on the fireplace mantle which is shoulder high!

Of course Jinxy the kitten has very good taste. This is my Stephen Zeh black ash French bread basket she is sitting in.

Color and more color

Working a bit out of my comfort zone and making some space-dyed reed baskets. These are samples for a class I am going to be teaching next year. More information on that once the schedule is officially announced. I am excited about the class as I think all of the baskets are going to turn out so differently.

Another new place to sit

via Instagram

Jinx has discovered my basket weaving room and that she can get on the table if she climbs up my leg, to my lap, to the table. She does like to chew on everything, including my weaving materials, so as cute as this picture is she is going to be banned without supervision from getting into things.

Old Basket/New Kitten

via Instagram

So I got a new kitten last week. She is supper sweet and super chill, but is a little feisty when she wants to be. Besides quickly taking to my other cat and her new home, she has also taken to all of the baskets as well. She loves to sit in any of them that she can get too and apparently on top of, as this has become one of her favorite new places to sit. As long as she doesn't chew on anything I am perfectly fine with her getting into/on top of any of the baskets she wants. The Eric Taylor designed basket behind the one she is pictured sitting in is also one of her favorites. I am having to get after her though as she likes to bite on the handle and rim, which is a definite no-no. I'm never going to be able to keep her out of these, so I might as well train her that chewing on the baskets is definitely against house rules.
