( and the cats )

On the last, very sunny day, I had some canvases,
brushes and acrylic paint.

I'm back to stitching :
on a piece I started during the
Sun, moon, stars class from Jude in May
Not finished yet, but it's going fine.
I ripped off some bits and added instead a piece of Jude's
From the beginning there was a piece with a feather on it ...
After stitching ( and seeing ) só many beautiful feathers
for Jude's Magic Feather Project
there had to appear more on this "Star" piece
