An image of Stanley in his last summer…we always visited the back yard in the morning, and afterward he loved to nap on the deck in the morning sun in warm weather.

Bella! and Her Foster Friends Tote Bags

In May I created a silhouette from Bella and stenciled it in onto a canvas or twill bag and embellished with buttons sewn on by hand. I know that not all kitties are black, despite what my house full of housepanthers try to tell me, and I decided to try out a few other kitty […]
