Happy New Year!!


Above is my disgruntled and non-photogenic cat, Jet.
She is still strugling with getting used to a new dog in the house and seems to be wigging out a bit. If Jet doesn't run then Annie doesn't chase... now to get Jet to understand that!

Seeking artistic direction in 2008.
I've been playing with some fabrics I received in the mail, color wonderful color... I painted the base fabric then ironed on the shapes, then am embroidering by hand. I will NOT recommend embroidering onto painted fabric unless you like to use needlenose pliers to pull the needle thru! Don't they make sewing machines that do all these stitches???
I hope all your dreams become reality in 2008!

I sooooo know what you mean about sewing threw these thicknesses....beading through layers of gelled papers...not fun.

Beautiful cat - who could blame her for not liking to share space with a dog? =)

I love your piece. The colors are wonderful together. Glad you have good pliers. =)

Just catching up, the kittens have kept me real busy, we are down to 2 now. Your cat does not look to happy...I have one like that. The pictures of Annie are just to cute
What a great thought to start a new year, SEEK DIRECTION, and who better to ask than God? May he bless all that you do.
