    Beautiful color for a beautiful jacket and a perfect fit. You look great, Mary. I’m so sorry for your cats, Mary must be hard to loose both cats in a matter of couple days.

      i do really like this outfit and i plan to make more of the tops and jackets.
      my daughter got me a little kitten called toffee for my birthday as my deaf cat fizz was left alone. she helped me such a lot with the loss of my two cats. i have lovely memories of all my furbabies x

      thanks schnui,
      i can see the jacket getting a lot of use and as its so easy to make i’m going to make a couple more in the off white twill i have and try the dip dying effect. i think they would look good with jeans x

      my little white cat (the one at the pictures) was sleeping some days ago under my car, I didn’t see him and now he is dead … I can’t get him out of my mind, it’s so sad and unfair:(

      Jul 7, 2013, 08.16 PMby Mary Athey

      oh liliv i’m so sorry, it was an accident and you know what cats are like. my rescue cat was white also and i only had him a year, i came home from work and found he’d passed away. my other cat passed away two days later with me at her side, she was seventeen and had a good happy long life. i’m still upset at losing them both. time is a great healer so think happy thoughts as shes crossed over the rainbow bridge now and would’nt want you to be sad xx

      Also, I am sorry for your lost Liliv. I know the feeling. I once ran over a cat. He wasn’t mine but I was driving by and the cat just jumped down my wheels. Usually cats ran aways when cars drive close but this one did all the opposite. It was like he wanted to commit suicide. After I had a uncomfortable and bad feeling for a long time I didn’t even want to drive. But it went away after some time. So as Mary says concentrate on happy thoughts and the good times you had with your cat. ;-)
