it's a cat

This belated birthday present for a 1 year old is from Betz White's Warm Fuzzies. Guess I'm really liking that book lately and the fact that I've been collecting 50-11 sweaters for the last month or so. It's just a little break from the mitten making.

It was easy to make, just a little confusion on the sewing the front to the back, but it won't be a bother next time. Kind of an
a-ha moment shall we say.

Here's another blurry picture. Of the mouth. I tell ya, this time of year, and maybe for the winter, my camera bites! I can't even get a decent picture unless the sun is shining. ugh. smile, breathe, think pretty, focused thoughts.

And the back of it. Yes, green is a strange colour for a cat, but it was workin' for me that day. All the colours and swatches came together. he's fancy.

And here is a request to be added to the post. Rafael is quite proud of his gnome friends and the big dipper in the sky. He wanted you to notice the big dipper. Do you notice?

thanks for stopping by

What a beautiful cat that is. It's a tabby cat, they are kind of green(ish)! It was lovely to meet you at the crafts market at TWS last Saturday. I had a feeling you'd be around. Thanks for spotting me in the crowd and saying hello, it's great to put a face to a name/blog in this age of digital friendships!

Hi Amanda. This cat is FANTASTIC! Couldn't it also be a dog? Or what about adding whiskers? Put it down in front of some kids and see what they come up with? Rafael's drawing is awesome. Please tell him I love the big dipper!
