Cat

Not done any more to Gingerbread Boy , why not ,well I have been asked for a door stop draft excluder.
Many years ago my mum and her friend made over 900 of these Cat's and raised funds for the church. We kids sat for hours cutting up foam to stuff them. Collected stone's from every where(especially building sites). Ate lots of birds custard to get the tins, to put the stones in.
I Half remembered what the pattern looked like and have come up with something very near. I'm very pleased with how it's turned out.

Tat a long

Well here's the body of my Gingerbread boy. I have joined Ambitterous'es Tat-along. I have alway's wanted to tat this pattern by Gina the tatting goddess. I had started this last week before I knew about the tat-along but I found a fault and the scissors came out. Well here goes again better luck this time I hope.
