New Dark Calico

Custom designed dark calico

I was very pleased to receive a custom order by a client desiring me to design and make a dark calico cat. My design for this hand-felted sculpture was inspired by photographs provided by the client. She has some adorable cats!

I offer custom cat sculptures like thisĀ  for $169. which includes initial consultation and the creation of a original unique design.

I will be adding a Dark Calico to my Natural line of cats which are priced at $129. If you would like me to design a cat for you, or would like to order a cat from my Natural or Fancy lines, contact me at dyeing2weave@hotmail.com.

Harvest Time

wpid-img_20150924_144146_241.jpgA fabulousĀ late September day, blue sky and low humidity. It is perfect weather for collecting plant material for my natural dyeing escapades. I found some goldenrod that was still usable, plentiful smartweed and a bucket of pokeweed berries. From my garden I harvested tansy, marigold and dahlia flowers that I’m drying to use another day.

A Fair in the Park

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

At the show this past weekend in Pittsburgh the patrons in my booth kept telling me they had seen my cat sculptures in the local newspaper.

On Sunday a lovely lady brought me a copy of the Home and Garden section of the Tribune, and there they were! I am very flattered that out of 110 talented artists my whimsical felt cats were chosen to attract folks to come to the show. We were hampered with some rain over the three day event but the location is wonderful and so are the people of Pittsburgh.

The Thank You Gift

A customer who purchased one of my hand felted cat sculptures sent me this amazing thank you card. The card has a color pencil drawing of the cat she acquired; it is so well done and a wonderful complement. I have very talented customers.
