I have always loved the "possibilities" that every new project presents. In addition to the design are the decisions about colour plan, technique, materials. For me, this is the creative phase, making these choices and going for it - the loop pulling is the therapy and the journey.
If you have been following my blog, you know this is not my first rodeo. A few years ago I hooked One Moose, Four Ways.
|This is the Primitive Version|

|She is my "impressionist" moose.|
|She is my "realistic" moose, or as realistic as you can get in an 8 cut.|
I decided my next exploration would go in a new direction and I was searching through royalty-free clip art and found this handsome cat.
I initially drew him on a piece of backing six times. And before very long, he became these six feisty felines.
|This is Proddy Cat (with a nod to Maude Lewis)|
|This is Primitive Cat with Snow Balls|
|This is Doodle Cat with the palette from Doodle Moose.|
|This is Realistic Cat who looks very serious.|
|This is Applique Cat, with buttons.|
|This is Painterly Van Gogh cat.|
|This is "inch mat" cat, peeking up from lower frame. - I accidentally put him 1" lower.|
|This is "calico cat", hooked like the fabric.|
|And this is "Abstract Cat". The clip art cat cut apart and arranged in this way.|
