Kitty cat on Sunday

Ahh down with a cold still. It has been a week and life, kids and Christmas plays do not give leave to those of us who are sick :( This week I dragged myself about infecting as many of the good citizens who were not already infected ( not many mind you) and got what I need to put together for darling daughter's costume. There is no real rhyme or reason to costumes at pre-school here, it seems to be whatever the parent wish will do, and this year DD decided she wanted to be a cat and an orange cat at that. Well looking around the orange got axed and she has finally accepted she will be a brown cat. Here is a sketch of how I hope our final creation will look. It should not be very complicated as I found a second hand adult brown shirt and now I need to just added the bowa like multibrown yarnie thing, some pink felt and then make the bando, and whala it is  done. Ahh if the cold will just let up now.  Hoping you have a snot free Sunday and see the sun, and pop on by  Sunday Sketches.
Cheers.

Why is is that colds and flu always appear when you are at your busiest? Lovely little sketch, the costume looks like it is going to be gorgeous and your daughter will look so cute.

Hi Jehanne, sorry your feeling rough. Miss DD will look gorgeous in her outfit...it will all be worth it in the end. I'm hearing your pain...I'm in the middle of making 22 antler headdresses with hands as models for the end of year school Sing Sing...Rudolph the red nosed reindeer in French... not quite the same but the kids are enjoying it... hope you feel better soon... :)

I love your sketch, it has a really old feel to it - like it has come out of an much loved children's book. Hope you feel better.
