Constant Knitter

I am trying to learn how to work with paper clay. So far I'm having a good time but that dose not always translate into a nice work of art.  The face is clunky , the eyes protrude and she has a slight over bite ( like me) we make what we are familiar with.  With time I hope to get better.
     She is wearing a dress that was to become a sleeve for a dress that my Aunt Soffia had started to knit and didn't finish, her clogs are also  knitter Icelandic Lopi wool .  She is holding knitting needles and yarn, excited with a  idea for a new project.

A new cat!!

A new cat but it isn't a real one. Been having fun with this fat cat.



The best part of sewing for me is being surprised with the out come of some fabric, thread ,stuffing and a little bit of paint.


Our family cat Ed Norton died two weeks ago.  He would have been 20 years old this coming spring.  He was found in the local sewer (hence the name) or a gutter drain and came to live with us as a tiny kitten , his eyes newly open.  He was never a cat that liked to be cuddled , he just as soon as bite or scratch you. Not a very great full cat but we miss him and hope that he is having fun with all our pets that have gone before him .
