birthday cocktails with a crafty friend last night. and very lovely brownies and blondies to accompany my moscow mule. i know she loves cats. and thought her tastes for cool neutrals were pretty similar to mine so went with this little cat cushion. i’d felted the slate grey sweater an age ago and sewn it up. i was very lucky with the oatmeal fabric. i drew out a cat template and then went to look for a contrasting colour in my scraps bag. i found this piece that just fitted and it meant the knitted stripes fell on the diagonal which i think makes it look extra nice. i looped the tail around the back as an extra detail, just wish i’d had enough fabric for a bit of a curl. i asked the kids to tell me what it was (i always do that when i make stuff just in case it looks nothing like i imagine) the eldest said kitten and he’s spot on. somehow between drawing a cat and cutting it out it turned into a kitten.
apologies if i’m not in the most fluent of moods today. my hands are FREEZING and i’m having trouble typing my sentences. time for hot coffee.
