I have a little shadow, of the furry 4-legged variety. She follows me all around the house. Acting as supervisor for all daily chores/tasks. Lately, one of her favorite things to do is assisting me while I sew. She inspects my sewing/crafting books for the latest patterns & designs - but mainly she just loves to add her scent to each book in the basket.
As I sit n front of my sewing machine, she watches every move I make -- because you never know when I might have an open lap available for a nap!
