Hey, Mr Spaceman - won't you please take me along for a ride?

This was painted in acrylic on a 6x6 inch canvas by Mr Meririsa. Our son is into space and the moon and stars, so that determined the theme.

Cat made from knitted squares!

"Andypuss" the ginger cat was a birthday present for Phoebe, who is kindly letting her 6-week-old brother "play" with the cat in this picture.
The pattern for this kitty came from "Knit a square and make a toy". Was easy to knit, not too hard to stuff and sew up. I found embroidering the face the hardest bit, because I'd never done this before, let alone with 8 ply wool onto a wonky, plain stitch knitted substrate.
