More Cats…

I had great fun designing and making this wall hanging.
Called “Library Cats”, it will hang in my son’s school library next term.
I’m thinking about making another one to hang at home.

I wonder how many of the titles the children will read?

Yes, I have a thing about cats…

It’s been a while since my last blog and I realised that I posted my latest offering in the wrong place, so here goes attempt number two…

It has been a busy year since my last post and I have shamefully neglected my blog, but now I’m back with some photos of what I have been up to.

These fabric stained glass kitties were made for a friend and inspired by the gorgeous works of Sedef Yilmabasar, an amazing and multi talented Turkish artist.
I love the way the black applique bias make the colours pop.
Check out Sedef Yilmabasar and her work here http://www.kediciressam.com/  http://www.turkishculture.org/whoiswho/sedef-yilmabasar-ertugan-3167.htm

Another fabric stained glass piece I made was taken from a pattern from Stained Glass Hobby and scaled up. This site is a fantastic source for practicing this type of applique.  http://www.stainedglasshobby.com/index10.php

 

And finally, this piece was made after I fell in love with a picture on the internet.
I don’t know who the original artist was, but I adapted the flowers to make Mackintosh roses. This was my first foray into stained glass applique for my college work.
Enjoy
Lots of love Cxxx
