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)

RE: WIP Cat

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!
