Polka dots and stripes


This week I had to laugh at myself!  Did your mother ever tell you the ‘no nos’ of  clothing?  I remember her saying

“do not wear brown shoes with black or was it blue? ” Also pattern on pattern was wrong, which had me in a fit of giggles yesterday as I found myself wearing stripes and dots!  To honour that, I had to do a small sketch of the event, which somehow morphed into  a cat.


I think cats and stripes were on my mind as I have started making crochet toys for charity and one that I am very proud of is the stripey cat.


Here they are photographed with Zana.

I hope all of you at PPF have a lovely weekend and I will see you on my rounds.
