Materials/Techniques: All fabrics are cotton. The beige cat has beige spots and the grey mice have been lightly glittered. All edges are satin stitched with rayon thread for added sheen and white crochet thread becomes snowflakes scattered in the dark sky.
Artist Statement: With its snow-mouse ears, this cat must be shivering! The beige and cream cat looks at you with yellow eyes and brown nose and facial features. The glittered snow mice sport antique dark beads for eyes, nose and mouth and the arms are twigs. This adorable cat's upper part contrasts with the dark blue background quilted with metallic thread and hand embroidered snowflakes. Snowy green trees grown on a 'snow' covered hill in the background.
Dedication: Dedicated to all the people who enjoy winter snows! Just give me balmy South Texas.
