Cats with sweaters

 Two wool cats with sweaters....ready to go out for their daily walk.
 Finished up Mr. Owl. I only had to do one change on him. When I do my rug hooking at night sometimes it is hard to see the actual color of the wool strips I am using. I had hooked a sort of purple gray strip under his chin thinking it was brown ...so I changed it after looking at it in the morning light. I also hooked another row around the body because when you sew and stuff your critters they tend to shrink in a bit.

 Added a bit of fun to my winter hat....

 new little kittie...
 Hooked house charm and bird pin flying off to Grace in Texas....

 Here are some gray sweater cats that I am working on...need their tails sewn on and faces finished.

And I am off to the Farmers Market this morning for fresh salad greens, cajun almonds for my son, and whatever else looks good! Have a great weekend!

Lovely little stitching on your hat, a fun little bit of whimsey : )
I was smiling when I read about your owl re-do because I have the same problem: seeing my work!
especially at night.
Great cats and love the hooked owl. <3

Love the hat embellishment, Mary! So adorable. I might have to do something similar to my own hat. Hope you're well...see you at Artfest - yay! xoxo
