Cat Tale #1


My cat Kristy thinks I'm a soft piece of furniture. Her presence on my lap is so commonplace, I sometimes don't realize she's there until I glance down from my reading or the TV. She also has a habit of climbing on my shoulder while I'm sleeping. I know she's thinking "I want my breakfast!" That scenario inspired this fabric picture. After sketching the idea, I used fused fabrics to build the image, machine stitched the elements, hand quilted the background and accented everything with acrylic paint and colored pencil.

What a great piece! My daughter recently drew something like this featuring her and our demanding cat, Bob.
