Solving Problems with Suey Sunshine

I have a problem. It is a big problem. It is this. My mum made this. It is a fabric portrait. It is supposed to be me. Dad put it best when he said it looked more like the child of a koala and an ewok. Do you like my Harry Potter zigzag above my eye? MOL!Mum's happy with Fui's, except for the surrounding fabric. Next to him, I look even worse!! So the time has come. I instructed mum to make a new one.It looks promising so far.Come on, lady!!This is the new finished product. Torties are hard, I guess. I'm missing my cream foot and the milk spill on my chin, but it's a better likeness. I have one of our old collar tags on it, with a bell.
The problem of having to look at the old one has been solved!

Well done Lissa. You could make Fui and Suey a quilt with their own pictures on it.

Have a nice week.

Your Mommy has a great deal of talent! I really like those!
ps - when Mommy volunteered at Wayside she'd always marvel at how ignorant some people would be. She would turn down a lot of folks who wanted "an outdoor cat" - why in the H#ll would someone want a cat for the outdoors?

You are very talented. I'm sure if my mom tried that we'd come out looking like great big blobs with ears!

I think both of the fabric Sueys look good! And it's amazing how Fui's tabby stripes look. Your mom is very talented!

Torties are tricky, I guess, but your mum's done a fantastic job! My Kate could NEVER do anything like that for me.

P.S. Suey, when did you have an encounter with Lord Voldemort? Scary!

I like both the old and new - you mum is very talented. SS can't sew at all :(, there is absolutely no chance of my ever getting one like this. Love the HP scar!

We really like all three of them. Your mum is very talented.
