Cats, Cats, and more Cats


I don't prefer cats over dogs . We have always had cats or dogs in our lives. Right now we have one very old cat named Ed Norton. He was found in a gutter drain as a tiny kitten. The name comes from the T.V. show the "Honeymooners". This spring he is turning 19 years old .
Lucy the dog came to us via our son and daughter-in-law. They found her in Nepal on a visit over 10 years ago.




But for what ever reason cats have been flowing out of my needle work. I started with a very simple pattern that I made up and here they are. They have been a lot of fun to make.







The cats that are standing are about 3" from head to toe and about 31/4 or so long ,not including the tail. They are to small for the sewing machine so they are hand sewn and then needle sculpted . Hope that you enjoy them as I have.
