New ATCs

 I needed to make some ATCs 
and thought it would be fun to hand stitch them,
 using silky fabrics from my "fancy " stash. 
I added a little lace for frothy waves, 
some beading for flowers 
and a bit of fiber and cording for outlining, 
and mounted everything on some stiffened felt.

Later, when I went into my sewing room, 
I realized that I had left the drawer 
containing my silky stash open, 

Someone has very elegant taste in bedding!
She looked so comfy I let her stay
there for the morning!

What lovely ATC's. Cats are so funny they love to sleep in all kinds of nooks, drawers, chairs. It is sweet you allowed Kristy to sleep there for the night.

I love your ATC's and that is such a beautiful photo of Kristy on your lovely fabrics. Looks like a painting to me!

Who wouldn't want to lie in a drawer full of silky stash!!! Cats know all the best places to sleep! Your ATC's are beautiful. You have inspired me to have a go at a small hand stitched something!x

Yes, Kristy is an expert at finding cozy sleep spots!
I love your comments. Many thanks, Ladies!

Just back to blog wandering, and wanted to let you know how pretty these are. The fun use of lace as waves, and the watery colors are just perfect. Nicely done, Judy! And Kristy is a clever girl, finding such a posh place to rest!
