Green Cat Doll

I'm only doing 1 Cat Doll for St. Patricks Day this year.  This one will be a gift for a friend who loves my Crazy Quilt Cat Dolls:

I'm still experimenting with Blackwork style fill-in patterns and waste canvas.  Here's a closeup photo:

Blackwork embroidery is a beautiful way to show off the sparkle of Kreinik metallic threads.  Here, I used a #4 Braid.

This fill-work came from me wanting to put more embroidery on my crazy quilts but also wanting to use lots of lace and trims.  I truly feel that variety is the spice of life when it comes to crazy quilting.

When your friend has recieved her cat doll, would you post a pic of the finished cat please?
I love what I can see of it, so fresh and Spring-like, such a joy as always to see yours and your Mums' work.
Thank you for cheering me up some!

Have a great weekend,

Sandie xx

Your black(green)work echoes the plaid in the other fabrics!
