Here is Redworker2002's kitty entry.










I really love her, the primitive kitty suits the fabrics and the colours, she is a hoot to roll out at Halloween and I love the clothes she has - what a snappy cat. She reminds me of a book Laura has about a cool black jazz cat. Im sorry you didnt get more votes Nancy, that sure would hurt poor ol' kitty. You did a fantastic job and your idea for using that fabric was brilliant - cat3 clap

PS I popped your pics into the Misc Crafts album in the Gallery hug08

Redwork/nancy...I thought you cat was wonderful! And I think you did a wonderful job on the dress! It was stiff competition...there were a lot of creative ideas

And yes...it is Project Runway-ish...I did like that!!

As far as my straight rows...I just did one at a time and stitched them together after I made one LONG skinny strip! I think there was a lot of forgiveness in them being so small.

I was at the LQS last night, but didn't find quite the exact fabric I had in mind. I am looking for colors that cannot be matched easy and also maybe something on the obnoxious side. I'll continue searching.

By the way, I described the fabric to the LQS owner and said "The fabric had cats dressed/depicted in different professions. One of them was more than likely 'pimp'." She just roared and thought it was the funniest thing. I also said I was looking for a really ugly fabric. She said "Oh, yes. We definitely have some ugly fabric."

I'll keep searching. Round about May or June, we'll need a fun challenge.
