Teddy bears, puppies and kittens.....

Fall is in the air - the leaves will soon begin to change colors and present a breathe taking change that is so inspirational to me.  I always think about finishing projects or following through on ideas.  For many years, I have thought about adding a kitten to the designs I enjoy making.  Not too long ago, my beautiful Granddaughter asked me why I never made a cat?  She and her Mom are true cat lovers and caretakers of kittens and cats of all sizes and ages.  I really did not have an adequate answer.

Her precious question pushed me to sit at the drawing board and see what I could come up with.  I found in my overflowing mohair closet, a small piece of a beautiful mohair that said "kitten" to me.  So, the pattern was drawn up to utilize the small piece of mohair.  The kitten sits 6-1/2 inches tall.


Here is the outcome - I want to make a few changes to the pattern for the next one, but I was pleased for a first effort.  Hope you have a great day - thanks for visiting......
