Rain can be a good thing sometimes. Today was cold and rainy — a relief, actually — calling a halt to the potato-digging, lawn maintenance, etc. After several days of working like a dawg (!), I finished up paperwork, made soup and headed out to the studio. Two of my three cats followed me out there. Yes, it looks like three cats, but the one on the upper right is actually a toy cat. Mr. Wonderful (the middle cat) is giving a love bite to Picasso. Imagine trying to figure out complicated patterns and fabric folds while two cats are rolling all over, flattening the fabric folds and rearranging your setup while the sunlight floods in for one or two minutes, to be followed by hours of dark clouds!
