Two weeks ago Barb in MI very kindly offered to send me a few pieces of brown fabrics for my cats, they arrived yesterday morning so I had time to quickly make four to add to my two made earlier in the week when I found a piece of KF brown/black left over from years ago, also made a grey batik (left) which I think you'll agree looks really weird!! He may not make the final cut!
I love the leopard spot kitty on the left
the one on the right reminds me of exploding fireworks
Paw prints on the left,
marbled fur on the right - this probably could have gone under the Orange heading but I think she fits in just fine here with all her pals.
Before I link up with
Angela over at Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2014
here is something far removed from my cats above (hopefully)
just outside our ranch slider onto the balcony we have a blackbird nest in the trellis (just two feet away from the door) momma bird was sitting on three beautiful blue/green speckled eggs and now both she and poppa are busy feeding three babies. They nested here last year and if we're digging in the garden they fly down, sit by my side and wait for grubs or worms to appear as I fork the soil, pick them up and go off back to feed the babies. I feel really honoured that they would nest so close and trust us, I managed a quick shot yesterday and one of the babies was very obliging. I have always been fascinated by birds so this is a real joy for me.
On a sad note to finish this post we were horrified to see on our news that another school shooting had happened in America - surely this madness has to stop. I do hope none of you reading this know anyone caught up in this tragedy.
