Inchies and Tabby...

I was making some "inchies," scraps of fabric that I sewed together with some batting in the middle, then glued to a canvas.  I think a good name for it is Squared...  Anyway, the neighbor's kitty wanted in on the action, so the shoot became "Tabby modeling herself and blending in perfectly with her surroundings."  We have a thick mat of wild oak leaves on the ground now since they fall off when the new leaves are coming in.  I liked the background for my mostly blue Squared.  These are not real inches, they are 2 inches square.  One inch would just be too tiny to work with and then combine into a pleasing pattern.  It's kind of like quilting, you can't really go wrong if the colors harmonize.  So, this is what I do when I watch TV, which is not very often.  But they come together mindlessly, a meditation in fabric!

My tabby does the same thing Maria! Beautiful piece by the way. I love how you photographed it against the leaves too. :)
