Murphy's Mess


I arrived home on Friday evening to find this on my kitchen table. Murphy, Tony's 8 month old puppy (who is almost the size of a horse) found a ball of #8 perle cotton.
Tony tells me that he must have run around the entire first floor with it as it unwound. Murphy managed to wind it around every single piece of furniture and Tony had quite job getting it cleaned up. Dear boy tried very hard to wind it up nicely but eventually gave up and cut it a few times. I wish he would have taken a picture of the mess before he cleaned it up. I would have liked to have seen it.
Lucky for him, perle cotton isn't very expensive. If he had gotten into my silks, I wouldn't be laughing!

Poor Tony ....STRING !!! STRING!!! Did you not educate your son?

Don't you just love the way our guys collectively mislabel all the tools of our craft ... my husband always refers to my "knitting". Although I have shown him, on numerous occasions, the difference between knitting needles, crochet hooks and cross-stitch needles ... every testile craft is lumped under the heading of knitting, so far as he is concerned.

Should have been textile rather than testile ... that's what comes of posting in a dark bedroom at 6am

Wow, and I thought it was just cats that liked string. :-)

I think you should post a picture of Murphy - I don't think I've seen him since the 4th of July...

Oh my...that is too funny!! I can't stop giggling :) I would love to have seen a "before" clean-up pic, too.

Like you said, it's a good thing that it was only the DMC version of "string"!!
