..and what is it that makes you scream?

 
This morning I was inspired by Jocelyn's post to try and do some macro shots and thought I'd kill two birds with one stone and do some sewing at the same time. Hey, I've managed driving a car while shooting, this should have been a piece of cake. Should have been.
So while the kitties slept, I quickly packed out the gorgeous material I'd bought ages ago and set out the pattern pieces for some tote bags. I love the way these swatches look together. My swatch admiration did not last long.

What the hell was I thinking? I swear they have some kind of radar. This is the look I have come to fear...
 
...see the wild glint in her eye? It's Minnie in fucking kamikaze mode.
 
Here's another face that has me casting a quick panicked glance around the room.  She looks like one of those demons in Supernatural when, up until a second ago, they looked completely normal and then all of a sudden their eyes go totally black. God, I should have named her Ruby.
 
 
I managed to cut out my pattern pieces but by then I'd had enough.
 
This project is going to take longer than expected.
And while we're on the subject of the little shits fuckers...damage count is now:
  • One floor lamp (sob)
  • One glass
  • Two picture frames
  • One cushion (snivel)
  • and a lounge that looks like a ...well, like a couple of demon kitties just escaped through the Devil's Gate...man, I'm missing that show

God those macro shots are AWESOME!! Just love them. Heheh! She does have that look ... Still cute though!
In a year's time you will wonder where the time flew! :)

I wonder who recommended you name her Ruby in the first place? ;)

Macro work is a lot of hard work but so worth it when you get it done. I am taking home my desk lamp from the office because I don't have enough lighting there to do macro. Flashlight does not cut it.

I miss Sam and Dean too.

Ah ha ha!! What an awesome video! Where did you find it? Lol. I miss the show so much. Less than a month to go!

Demon kitties, huh? Damn. Bad time of year to get an infestation, I tell you. Their demon radar and sensors are only heightened right about now. Nothing for it but to lay down the salt lines.

And watch them skid through 'em with glee, scattering it all over the flat!

Lovely pics though :)
