Lost Kitty


















Here is my finished November challenge. I call it "Lost Kitty" as it shows a kitty lost in a field of lavender. Perhaps it was chasing a butterfly or lady bug and then lost its way........

The kitty is painted with acrylics on fabric then the grass and lavender are attached by felting. The lavender is from Katherine Dunn's lavender farm that Tracie Lyn, Jan and I visited when we attended Art & Soul.


I wanted to do something different but since we seem to keep attracting stray kitties to our house it just seemed appropriate to do a cat.

this must be great to see live---with the feely textures--makes a wonderful statement.

Wow, that is a very clever technique - felting the lavendar onto the fabric!

OK.. that doesn't look like either Nala or Casey... do you have 3rd cat now?

Wow, 3D lavender art! Very clever. I'm glad you have found a good use for it - and you know I have boxes of it!

I don't want to get you too excited, but I FINALLY got my sewing machine cord and bought some fabric today. I told Martyn I am going to make him a suit!

Thanks for all the comments.
No 3rd cat yet but there is a very grumpy looking Tom that keeps coming by. I refrain from from taking him in but who know the future - cold weather is coming and my heart just can't say no to these little creatures.

your cat is so full of mischief - and what a great way to use the lavender - that was a wonderful field trip to the farm
