TOM'S NEW TAPESTRY


The last time I blogged about Tom's hobbies he was attempting to crochet a Pug dog.
This didn't go well, it drove him mad and it went in the bin.

His real love is tapestry and since finishing the flowered one , see here
he has been a bit lost without one on the go.

Here is the new one.
a Kaffe Fassett cat.


And here he is hard at work on it.



Now, would I prefer him with a cat face.
Possibly, lol

  3. I really like the cat! And I say if he loves tapestry do tapestry. Anything that makes you happy and it's he's really good at it. I wish Bob had something like this he could do

  4. Inspirational - what can we say? My Dad used to spin to fill some time after retirement, but they are past-times not conventionally associated with men. And why not? Creativity and crafting keep the brain active, and prevent its decay, keep the finger joints moving - all that stuff we women know so well. (And help us survive lockdowns without climbing walls.)

  5. I think it is wonderful that Tom has found something that he really enjoys doing. I clicked on the link to see his floral needlework, but it took me to my own edit page. WEIRD! You might want to check that out. ;-)

    Have a great weekend ~ FlowerLady

  12. Re your previous post.....We used to have a longhaired cat and I seem to remember he had cat food that was for preventing hairballs...or at least not to get them stuck. He never had any problems. You are probably already doing this,so sorry if I am out of order telling you what to do!! Glad Rupert was OK. Love the cat tapestry. Will it be a cushion?

    1. Hi Frances, Thank you for the suggestion and you are not out of order. We buy the dried food for hairballs and they have wet last thing at night. All of the others spit out nice neat little fur balls but for some reason his are huge and he has a job to get them up, therefore sometimes they travel all through and that's when they get stuck. I know he has long hair but so do Polly and Rowan and they have no trouble. xx

  13. I've always love Kaffe Fassett. Even got to meet him once a long time ago. Tom has done a fantastic job on a tapestry that I know is not easy. He must have good eyes to be able to follow the chart and see to do the embroidery.
    How is Rupert doing? Hope the hairballs are passing through again.

  16. Your last line made me laugh!
    Tom clearly has a talent for tapestry, so it's good he's got a new one to do.
