Cara & I are having a serious disagreement. Apparently, she thinks this cute little kitten, with his lovely ribbon flowers, is a toy. She's been walking around the house with the kitten in her mouth, sleeping with him.....and just hanging out with him. I have never seen Cara try to do serious harm to him....but that just means I haven't caught her.
This kitten is a cutie, isn't he? He's a little stand up, and his tail wraps around him, making him quite 3-D. I got him at Rita's Needlepoint in NYC, and came up with the idea for the ribbon flowers on my own. Most of the kitten's body & sweet little face is done in tent stitch, to give added dimension to the flowers. This fellow was actually here before Cara & Mia, so he's a little insulted with being carted around like a fetch toy.
Anyway, I had to put the kitten inside a cabinet, to keep him away from Cara's attention, at least for now.
I got another candy cane done, leaving me 6 more to do. And Linda told you about our wonderful class with David McCaskill at Ridgewood Needlepoint. As soon as I make some progress with that canvas, I'll post a photo.
