A Sunday Kitty

Sunday sweet Sunday. Another week that has gone in the blink of an eye. I spent the last 6 weeks working on 23 book illustration and finished the last one on Wednesday night - yeah. However now I am in the I can't settle to  draw phase - sob, my brain seem to be just refusing to allow my hand to  even pick up pencil- yikes!.
Regular SS-er may recall a while back Marlene did some felting sheep and I was really intrigued.  So when I went to the art and craft store and saw some felting wool I had to buy it. After which I discovered I need a felting needle.. which I then ordered via ebay lol. Sooo on  Friday feeling completely art zapped I felted this little kitty.  It looked nothing like the sketch but thankfully it was not covered in blood from my felting wounds and it did look like a recognizable cat :).

On a sad note Sophia, her dad and her family are in need to our prayers as her dad's cancer has taken a turn for the worse :(  Sophia you are in our thoughts and prayers.

In Sophia's absence dear Heather at Rose Hill designs is hosting Sunday Sketches. So pop on by and see what the SSers are up to this week.

He is so cute. This felting business is a mystery to me... I must look it up on YouTube or somewhere to see how it is done!
