I found it

The tweety I was working on disappeared after I removed the 924 thread.  Being distracted by family matters, I didn't do a thorough search and assumed it would show up.  It did.  When I used the dusting mop under the sofa.  Since it was found in the area where Missy destroys my threads, I assumed the hole in the linen was caused by those mini mouth daggers.
 
No big deal.  I've woven a linen thread in a much longer area before and this was a very short distance to weave.  I removed the longer piece and started from the break working out, leaving a long enough tail to complete the other side.

The mistake I made was removing an end linen thread vertically when the patch was horizontal.  There may be a slight difference in the thickness, sheen, something, and although it looks OK I will pull from the same direction next time.  Just in case.

 
She is a stinker.  She was enjoying the two warm days we had and investigated a door she never entered through.
 
Can you believe April is half over? 
Have a great start to your week.
Thanks for visiting.

The repair looks good! Hard to believe April is half over...especially with the roller coaster weather continuing....

I'd never know where the repair was, Marly--beautiful fix. And no--I can't believe April is half over because it sure hasn't felt like April!

Marly,
Your repair is so perfect you'd never know! It's hard to believe April is half over! Here in Wisconsin, we're diggging out from a weekend blizzard. We had 16 inches but some had as much as 30".

Wow Marly, I'd have never guessed there was ever anything wrong with that fabric. Impressive!

Repair looks flawless (and yes, I blew up the pic for a really good look). How nice of Missy to break only one thread. While reading, I was thinking of her with a term we sometimes use for one or the other of ours - stinkercat.

There is no way to tell there was a rip in that fabric. Excellent weaving job! Sweet little stinker, eh? Hugs!
