A group of kittens make themselves at home in a sewing basket. With scissors, sewing thread, and yarn surrounding the basket and perhaps a bit of evidence to indicate the kitties played with the thread before settling in; this cat image would be loved by any crafter who shares their home with a favorite feline or two.
This charming illustration is from the wonderful children’s book illustrator Ida Waugh (d.1919). It appeared in the 1890 work Mammy’s Baby.
