Cat Portrait

The bird legs that I mentioned in previous posts have been cut out but they still need to be embellished and attached to the body. I will complete the bird as I find time to stitch a bit here and there. This August has to be one of the most jammed packed with committments that hubby and I have ever had. The stifling heat and humidity do not help with getting things done.

In addition to the bird, I have also started a new cat. My plan is to make a stuffed animal out of this. I often scan my work as I go along just to see what it looks like from another perspective and to help me move along in the right direction. I liked this scan so much that I decided to use the image on a greeting card too.

Many thanks to some of the "new" ladies who have left a comment on my blog for the first time. It's nice to know who visits and where you are from. And it goes without saying, that I welcome all comments from new and older readers alike.

If it's hot where you are dear readers, keep cool. :)

Lovely - an orange cat! I love the way the lips match the background, too.

I love orange cats, and this one is no exception! Can hardly wait to see her finished!

Sorry you're dealing with such awful heat. We're having the coldest summer in memory here in the San Francisco Bay Area. I'm definitely not complaining, but it's playing havoc with my veggie garden!
