Meowy Christmas to you…!

Whew!  Just squeaked my March OPAM challenge across the finish line..with a week to spare!

P1060924     

As you can see my Meowy Christmas is finished and framed!! (Not bad – some old wool blazers- snip, snap and presto…instant kitty!)  I bought the frame at the Goodwill and rubbed some brown paint on it to make it look more rustic.  I really like the look as it’s much darker in real life.

The pattern, Meowy Christmas, is from this Whimsicals book called, Cabin Fever.

Meowy is pretty cute!

Doesn’t  he look a little surprised - like he knows he’s out on the desert, in the middle of March, dressed for Christmas!

Darling! And you did such a nice job on the frame too! So, I'm guessing you also hauled all your paints with you (along with all the wool, sewing stuff, beading stuff, yada, yada, yada)? 'Cause I'm starting to imagine your RV is actually the TARDIS (do you watch Dr. Who?).

He's lovely. I think he looks kind of "knowing" rather than surprised. I think he approves of his frame too.
