The lives of a cat ~ or ~ why I'm always so behind!

 I have been stitching away on orders.
It's always a juggling act, between working towards shows, designing new pieces,
fulfilling orders and family life!
There are days I feel as if I stitch and stitch and have nothing to show for it,
but all those stitches do add up.  I may not see a finished product in a day or 
even a week or much longer, but once it all comes together there is an amazing sense of satisfaction
when a face stares back at you and says "Hello" !
I thought I'd share a few of the many time intensive details or "lives" that add up to make a Cat.
A Cat named McNamara"" to be exact ~ who is about 26" long!
(McNamara is now happily making mouse friends in his new home!)
Lori Ann
Oops . . .  I'm a Naked Kitty!
The beginnings of a dandy outfit!
Complete with Frock Coat and Top Hat!
Thinking about my journey . . . 
My name is McNamara

{{{I am sitting here waiting for kittens to arrive hoping Minew has them soooon!}}}
~ your McNamara is beyond handsome ~ i can only hope that the new little fur-lings will be half as handsome!
How big is your fellow?

Dixie Redmond said...

McNamara is wonderful! I understand about feeling like you stitch and stitch and have nothing to show. And then one day a fully realized creation is sitting before you!

Lori Ann Corelis said...
