One of my very first crocheted cats from way back in February, 2008. 5 inches high, so quite small (as you can see where she is sitting in my hand); embroidered eyes and a collar with a 'bell' instead of the later ribbon and bow which I now prefer. The legs were quite 'bendy' but now I like to make them rather stiff. I do lots of things differently now of course, like adding claws and filling in ears, and bringing the tail to a point. Also, I don't use this silver thread for whiskers any more because they frayed, despite coating the ends with varnish.

Rosie left home to live in Scotland in May 2008!
