Laurel Burch fabric cat hanging

I did this piece yesterday. I love Laurel Burch fabric as most of her fabrics have very vibrant colors. I especially love her cat and mermaid fabrics. Laurel Burch passed away last year, and so I'm not sure if her line of fabrics will still be produced for sale. I'm glad I still  have several fabric pieces with her mermaids and cats in my fabric stash.
I had difficulty photographing this hanging piece, and so the colors aren't quite right. I attached a silk flower pansy and to that I added a bumpy, orange glass vintage cabochon  that I bought many years ago, at a small bead store on Cape Cod, SMP. Unfortunately that shop is no longer in business. Susan, the owner had great vintage beads.
I needle felted angelina fibers around the cabochon. (unfortunately the sparkly fibers don't show up well in the photo), but if you click on the photo to enlarge it, you can see the sparkly fibers.
 The Follow your Dreams is ribbon, and I used beads on the eyes.

My first bearded iris bloomed yesterday, and the orioles are back singing in my apple trees. I filled my hummingbird feeders, and I can't wait for the feisty little birds to return to my yard. My lilac's are in full bloom, and when the wind blows their scent fills the air with their heavenly scent. Lovely.
Have an awesome day.
