This was the second mat I was trying to make. Kashka had already sat on the first one, so I moved it out of the way, then spread the fabric to cut for the second one, and lo and behold...she sat on it while I was cutting.
And if I dared complain, she looks up all innocent, but I got my revenge. She moved pretty quickly once the sewing machine was running!
It didn't stop her trying to help with my knitting later though!
