Cats Galore!

I wake up to a dismal damp day. The living room is so dark I could light a candle. I decide it is a day for crafting. A day for making tags. A day for making cats. I started off by making some sugared almond coloured lady cats with organza ties.
I then made a lilac cat and a lemon cat and gave them white bows for a feminine touch.

Here are my lady cats all grouped together. Their hand drawn faces are all slightly different.

In need of some bolder colours I made two manly cats, dressed them in paisley paper and gave them twine ties. I think they look very handsome in their finery.

Here are all the cats grouped together. Which one is your favourite?

This one is my favourite (sometimes). A very naughty ginger boy!

Such fine cats - they're lovely. I musn't say this too loudly as I have two lovely girl cats, but I think those paisley cats are my favourites!

Simone, these are just gorgeous. I think I rather like the manly Paisley cats the best, oh and Gizmo of course! x

Rita said...

They're so gorgeous Simone. My favourite is the lilac one or maybe the soft green. Decisions decisions!

Hi Simone, I came over from Debbie who showed us the lovely magazine and other beautiful items she won. I love your blog, I've been reading and have lots more to read so will be back soon. I love the kitties. They are so precious. I have two kitties Anna and Bailey so I really can't pick a fav or they will be really upset with me...but I love the pink one and the yellow..please don't tell them.

Hello Simone...
I was reading the comment that I posted before...
What I meant to say is:
- I so LOVE, ALL your cat tags!
My little ones are ALWAYS disturbing me, when I`m on the computer, and sometimes I realize that I don`t even finish some of my comments... and I just send them off.
In your case I forgot one word, so my comment didn`t made sense at all!
I`m sorry for that, by the way...
please do let me know, when you will be reciveing your little gifts from me.
Hope you like them!

Hi Simone your cats are very cute but I think the pale green is for me. I am very into soft green at the moment.

Rosie said...

Well, they are all lovely - especially the one in the last photo:) He's gorgeous. I really like the sugared almond coloured ones, too.

The turquise paisley....but they're all gorgeous. Most of all it has to the naughty ginger boy. He makes me smile!

Gina said...

They are all very cute Simone..but my pick would have to be the 'manly' cats and 'lemon' cat! On these dreary days..there is nothing better to do that crafting...and cooking something sweet! Gx

Good morning Simone..
It's good to know that there are other bloggers .. blogging all hours of the day and night.
I am fond of cats fullstop but have to say your Paisley Pussy cats are my favourite..
Have you thought of sewing some like Russian dolls.. they would look fab!

Have a great weekend.

I love the sugared almond cats - so pretty!

I will be adding an edit to my post with the pastry recipe for you ...and yes it has lard, so Mr P's lardy purchase was put to good use!!

Hi love all the tags can't choose a fav there so much nicer than the tags you buy in the shops.

They are all so cute! You make the loveliest tags. But I think my favorite cat is your favorite one... :)
