Catticus and friends

Here are my new friends. They're Curiosity Cats.
The black one's name is Catticus, and I'm yet to think of names for the other two.
And I'd better do it soon, because these little guys are coming with me to the Made N Thornbury market tomorrow, and hopefully they're going to find lovely new homes!
They're different to my normal toys ... a little plainer (not as wildly coloured as my usual stuff is, that's for sure), and certainly more stylised. I like their round faces. And each one has a different mouth.
I made Catticus first, and when I finished him I sat back and thought .... hm, something's missing.
Then the Amateur Actress suggested I put a ribbon around his neck, and lo and behold, it was the perfect thing. You can't see the ribbon very well in this photo, but you can see the ribbons on the others.
Isn't it great when things come together?
(Except for the spacing on this post, of course. I've no idea what's going on with Blogger today but the spacing refuses to work!)

What are you doing at the computer?... get thee to a sewing machine, wench! Hope the market goes well - I might see you there tomorrow.

Hello, lovely to meet you in person today... I'm already enjoying the doorstop, and no doubt you're thrilled not to have its apparent ugliness glaring at you!
