Miniature Cat Embroidery and Cat Stuff

 This is my 2"x 3" embroidery for the upcoming miniature show at IN A FRAME in June.  It's based on a photograph and pattern overlay using Adobe. I keep meaning to paint it one of these years, ahem!

Couldn't resist sharing this

About Sphynx Cats

Not enough room to swing a cat,(not a real cat

The ancient Egyptians shaved their eyebrows to mourn the death of cats and did you know outside the town of Beni Hasan  eighty thousand cat mummies, dating to 1000-2000 BCE were buried. Cats in Ancient Egypt

Beautiful cat embroidery! No, I did not know about all those cat mummies, amazing!

Awwww...little cutie-patootie, kissing her owner.

Looks kind of part Siamese, huh? Probably too delicate for my household but pretty just the same.

BTW, lovely embroidery. So perfect!
I've been trying to do a little (rewinding the tape back a LONG way!) I'm discovering I need a better light source for my aging eyes...any suggestions? Thanks.

thanks Giggly, Treena :)

I usually sit by the window OR at night have a strong lamp light directed on my embroidery along with the ceiling light.

I have heard some mention" mighty bright vusion" lamps but don't know anyone who has actually used it.
