Speedwell 1; created in May 2008 and 5 inches high; embroidered, felt, eyes, which all my early cats had. Went to a very good home in Edinburgh on the 5th June 2008!

Close-up - looking a much deeper blue for some reason

Speedwell 2; 6 inches high, July 2008. Started life as a standing cat but changed into a sitting one! As with Buttercup, I think I should change the name to that of a blue and yellow flower, or use cream for the contrasting colour, more like actual Speedwell flowers. Of course, sometimes the colours are just an approximation, but I like to get as close as possible! There aren't that many true blue flowers around - most seem to be closer to shades of violet.
