Now the Cats are marching into Town

Been very busy today and had a rotten nights sleep, so very sluggish.

I finished the Rabbits, so now I'm starting on their cousins the Cats. Got three done quite pleased with them.

The cats were drawn on cotton fabric by my friend Fi. All the words and pictures are from a vintage kids annual. I've introduced some modern card papers.

The wording makes these, so do enlarge them and have a look.

More Rabbits!!!

Oh boy I'm lovin' these rabbits. They are now getting into a 1950's Enid Blyton book, from Marks and Sparks.

I've sewn the rabbits in and then cut out some other characters, used confetti for parties for the presents and some flower organza ribbon. Plus some of the words and page titles have been put on too. Think these will make great cards.

One politically incorrect guest has been edited out on the party scene.

Wednesday Contemporary Art Group September

Today did not get off to a good start, we got very damp out walking. So first thing I do when I get back is grab Molly's towel and give her a rub down. My nose then tells me she's rolled in FOX dodo. Oh no it's all over the towel now!!! Arrgh and I've got to go to art group. Into the bath for her.

Get to art group and am directed up the hill to the other premises, wrong its at the other place down the hill. Back I go along with the others who have also been sent to the wrong place. Never mind, we get tea and coffee made for us.

Cherry has taken so much trouble to bring in her lap top and has a picture show for us of the Shiny Shed in Chelmsford. She#s made some great ornaments to hang on her twig there. Also she's made some great little books AND I've swapped one of my pictures for a book!! I'm so pleased with it.

Friend Fi gave me loads of drawings on bags so I've put one onto part of one of my pictures and then machine embroidered over it. Added some ribbon and words. Really enjoyed making these.
