Phri-days are Phindy's Place Challenge #21 - Paper Piecing

woooo hoooo it's Phri-day! and I have Monday off too!!!

now for this week's challenge over at Phindy's Place - the challenge is "paper piecing"

I love this sweet image. Printed it twice and then cut out the top half (the chair, granma and cat) and attached it over the lap blanket on dimensionals. I wanted her to look all "snuggled in" and comfy in that big chair..the lap blanket reminds me of a beautiful quilt with all the backstitching.

she just looks so completely peaceful and content!

I won't be "Granny" and since all our fur babies are fixed ... I won't even be a fur baby granny...but I can see that being me curled up in my comfy chair with one or all three of our cats reading a book and snuggling. I guess that is what art is all about, seeing yourself. Beautiful job and I love this image. Enjoy your long week-end!
