What was all that about?

E-gads, what was that all about?  Does anyone know?  I don't think I have EVER seen "Blogger" broken before.  Scary!  I couldn't even comment on some blogs.  I sure hope it's fixed for good now.  I'd hate to loose my stuff.........it's bad enough that I'm an idiot on all this techy stuff without blogger getting all goofy too.  LOL

Besides, I promised I'd show you the latest wall hanging for this post.  Do you remember what I told you that it was?  No?  Yes?  Hummmm......don't remember, huh?  No big deal, you see soon enough.  First, I started with the biggest section first.  I fused that down and continued:


 Are you getting a hint of what it could be?  I'm sure you know now, right?  Look at the next picture and take a gander:


Strange position, huh?  I remember when my kids used to sleep like that and I couldn't for the life of me understand how they'd be comfortable.....!!!  Naturally, they didn't have a bird on their head though!!  But, you know me......I'm a real bird brain from the word GO and had to add a bird into the mix.


Here is the original drawing.  Does it make more sense now?  Needless to say, I am still doing what I want.  (Such a rebel!!)


It's probably one of the biggest wall hanging quilts that I've done at 17 x 24 inches.  AND.....it's for sale!  Lets see if you like this one any better than the last.  Lord knows if you don't this might be the last cat with bird.......unless one has the other for lunch!  Yuck!  LOL  Let me show this to you all finished.  First the faces:

The faces

And now the whole thing:

"Here, Kitty, Kitty"

Cute, huh?  Okay....like I said, it's for sale.  $85 with a dowel, and O ring, ready to hang.  One of a kind, never to be reproduced (in any color) by me.  My e-mail info is on the right if you're interested.  Thanks so much!!!  I'll keep trying even if you don't like it 'cause I'm having a ball!!  :)

Love them both, especially this one, but unfortunately the purse is a little strained at the moment.
What about making some of your cute mug rugs?
Actually I love looking at ALL your stuff so please don´t stop:)

Sheila said...

Hmm ... think I meant drained not strained, cos strained implies it is bursting at the seams with money... Untrue :)

Merete said...

My blog was hijacked last week. I have not gotten it back yet. It is indeed, very scarey! Love your work. Very inspirational!

THis is great. Love the comical look, but I am NOT a cat person at all. I also have put a lock on my purse handles since last year we spent GREAT BIG BUCKS on an addition to our house and kept our jobless daughter afloat.
I love your work and wish I had a small percentage of your talent.

Such a sweet little kittie! (Blogger here in Australia is not recognising new blog posts in my reading list- I suspect due to the fact we are ahead in time!!! As someone pointed out, it was Friday 13th!!!)

I just love his zigzag whiskers Carol!!! My kids used to sleep with their knees tucked under and butt in the air, too. Hilarious!
