Cat’s Meow…..

Oh, it so great to start a new afghan!  This time it is a request from my daughter Colleen.  She has a good friend who has gone through a very tough time, this past year.  She is a cat fanatic.  Her work space is abounding with cats everywhere too.  We had seen a picture on “Pinterest”, of course.  It’s all their fault, they send me emails every day and I can’t resist!  They draw me in with pictures of items they know I will be interested in and BAM! there goes an hour or so down the rabbit hole. lol.

This is the from Etsy that someone Pinned and we saw the picture.  I thought of buying the pattern, then looked through my cross stitch patterns and decided to try my hand using my pattern instead.  It is very close to this one.  I have a whole bunch of remnants from prior projects and this was a fantastic way to use some of them up!

Here is my first square…..

The jury is still out on the ribbon around neck, will revisit this as I get more squares done.  Colleen approved the pattern and we are a go for more crocheting!

Till then…..Cyn

About designbycyn

Sonoma County, California ceramic enthusiasts Cyn and Steven Gradek have worked in the clay medium since 1996. They had a retail store where they held classes and provided the essentials for fellow ceramic enthusiasts. The business evolved into producing for other retail outlets and artist. Which quickly grew and they closed the retail storefront and concentrated on the wholesale business. With their 3 children raised and on their own, they had time to pursue their own creativity. Cyn learned how to embroider from her Grandma Cirner at a young age. After that she found sewing, cross stitching, crocheting, well you get the jist, LOL. She hasn't met a craft that she hasn't liked. Blogging was suggested by her youngest daughter, Colleen. At first it was a battle to get her to try it, but eventually Cyn started to enjoy the exercise. The blog on Cyn's website designbycyn.com was limiting, so Colleen got her started with Wordpress. Hope you enjoy her Adventures with Creativity!
