Meet Smudge...my cat!

I would love to have the real thing, as I know they make great sewing companions, but hubby is allergic to them, so I have to make do with my new Tilda friend...Smudge! I used calico, as I wasn't too sure how he would turn out...but I should know better now because all Tilda projects are soo easy!
The postman delivered my button order from Mothers Cupboard today...they are just so gorgeous...thankyou Fiona for such a promt service! I think that the cat buttons would look lovely on the front of a project binder! You can never have to many covered binders, as they are so useful!

I hope you are having a great start to the week!

Hi Lisa, Hey! we must be twins, I've just gone into making a couple of cats myself. Couldn't find my snail pattern, still looking. He must've slithered away. Kind regards, Anita.

Awww, Smudge is so cute!
I'm allergic to cats too....yes, I know I have 5 of them in the house. I get de-sensitizing needles once a month. Maybe you should force your husband into seeing a specialist so that you can have a real kitty! Although lizards make great sewing companions too! He's not allergic to them is he?

Love your smudge cat and I must agree with your covered journal phylosophy. I'm going to make more soon too but won't have pretty cats to put on them :)

Janet said...

I love the projects you've been making from the book so much, I've decided I need it. I'm allergic to cats too and they know it and try to win me over.
