Crazy cats, a grey block, and a visitor....

 These are the two latest cats. The one on the left is the one that was specially ordered following the article that was in Nordic Needle. The one on the right is all pink and green. The flower is crocheted, the leaves are hand-dyed. Both cats have a bit of vintage lace around their necks.


 This is a heart for a special friend who recently lost her husband. The chicken's tail is done in very long bullion stitches; the longest I've ever done.
 Here is my block for the upcoming grey color study on CQ for Newbies. I've been looking forward to this RR for a long time. Someone mentioned doing a fan RR, and I thought it would be fun to do this block in fans. It's a 14" block, so a little large for a RR, but I've asked for the center panel to be left blank for me to finish when it gets home. I don't really have a plan for what I'll do there. Hopefully something wonderful will occur to me in the time it's making the rounds.
 Here's a little visitor to our back yard. I imagine he's been eating crickets, as we have a bumper crop of them.

That snake grosses me out! I have them around the house too and I can't stand it.

Anyway. . . my comment. No wonder Judyth was blown away by your heart. That chicken is outstanding. I can't believe those tail stitches!

Oh, I love the heart and that silver/gray fans block will be fabulous! I can hardly wait to see it all stitched.
