Scrap Happy Cats

I thought this weekend was the last green one - I see that we have next week also and I've now made my allocated 10 cats for the month! Really should find something else to make quickly with green fabrics.

The cat on the RH side at the top actually has got a lime green pattern but sadly it's showing as almost a mustard, I'll try another photo tomorrow in a different position and on a different design board, I can see the grid showing through on my lime Fossil Fern. I confess  I'm not as happy with these four compared to the other cats I don't know why but maybe they are a little more subdues than my other, when they're all together in a quilt I'm sure they'll fit in beautifully.

Took delivery of my small Horn sewing cabinet Friday and just getting it organised, I'd love one of their larger ones but the price is quite prohibitive, certainly at the present time.

I found time to get out into the garden for a little while yesterday and today, the weather has been glorious, still cold but the sun beautifully warm.

Hadn't realised that these two plants were flowering and they're on the straggly side as I should have cut them back earlier than this, but I love their colour.

The thought has crossed my mind of two small mixed media pieces
using these two flowers as inspiration, dyes fabrics, beads etc. I love the centres of these, I think they're Arcotis.  The one on the right is by my apricot canna lilies and they're a pretty picture  both blooming together.

Time to link up now with the  ScrapHappy Saturday folk  do go along to see  what we're all doing over there, and enjoy your weekend.

I'm sure the kitties will be quite happy once they meet up with the others. Cats are funny that way.

Love the tents cat - I have given up on fossil fern due to its " thin " qualities (bad experience a few years back). Don't give up on your cats!

Gosh those flowers look amazing. I love getting close up pictures of flowers. They almost look unreal.

Loving the kitty collection - as always

That olive kitty is a hoot!

I was thinking this was the last Saturday for green too.
