WIP Cat

Calamity_JDecember 21, 2008

Well...fffiiinnnaaalllyyy!!! I'm getting it together and actually creating something!!! This is that concrete cat statue I bought for $4 at the thrift store I work at. I think it is sooo weird that I just can't find the "Ahhh, that's it!!!" stuff to use on her...in any of my stuff!!!! A room 12x20..packed full of mosaic goodness...and I just am having the hardest time finding just the right mosaic tesserae!!! Sheesh! And I'm snowed in so shopping isn't high on the agenda!lol! (Or else I would!!!) I'm making this for my Garden Junk Buddy, Cozy Cat!!! How can a Gal be so Blessed by having this forum site hook you up with 2 other like minded gals who live in the vacinity!?! GOD uses the internet to Bless us!!!heh heh! (the tiles on the right are the tiles going on her)

That is excellent. How do you make him look so smooth when there are so many curves to your cat.

Queen NefferKitti!!! Puurrrfect!!! I have blisters upon blisters from shoeling a couple feet of snow..all on driveway And around the house...so haven't made as much progress as I'd like, trying to let hands heal a bit before nipping another sheet of 2" tiles. But today I will, as I'm snowed in and get to PLAY!!! Yup, Play first then shovel some more! IF it stops snowing!!! It's def a WHITE Christmas!!! YEEHAW!!!! Love it! It hasn't snowed like this since I was a little girl!!! I even went out and bought a Bing Crosby cd!!!lol!!!

Queen Nefferkitti!!! that is soooo funny! She sure is cute, I just love the colors and the bead chain, is she a keeper or a gift? I'm working on a cat too! A silouette, in a window, I'll post pics when done.

I'm glad this came up again, as I'd missed this great cat, Jane. I wished the original photos hadn't disappeared, as I was hoping to see what the tess looked like that you decided to use before you did her. I love the chain you used to outline her. I'm always learning something new from you. Great cat!
