As much as I love your birds, I think I may like your moths even more! This is amazing!

By the looks of my newly (and mistakenly)felted hand knit socks, I'd say the cat should be sitting on top of a dryer and hitting the "Hot" button!

How about "beasts that ruin yarn"? My cat, Mookie, who looks much like your gorgeous beastie, objects to the word "thing"!

How funny and delightful! I hope this print makes it to your etsy shop, I would certainly buy one and hang it above my knitting basket. :)

Beautiful work! Do you ever accept commissions from ordinary mortals? My darling furry girl has an incurable and progressive muscular disorder and we are approaching the time when hard decisions must be made. To have her immortalized as a watercolor in your style would be amazing.

This piece is remarkable.

When I first looked at it, I thought it was a needlepoint artwork. On second glance, I thought it was a quilt applique.

This is painted?!?!?! Incredilbe.
