Challenging Ourselves

I belong to a yahoo group called 'Challenging Ourselves' and today is the big reveal of the theme "Favourite Places." First of all, it did not indicate 'my' favourite places and so I chose instead to look around and find another way of interpreting the theme. I have many favourite places and it would have taken too long to interpret them. This is what I came up with.

This was an interpretation of a photo I took of two cats and their favourite place on a sunny day. It is not quilted nor are any of the seams turned under. I wanted to leave everything as raw as possible. It will be framed with a mat board and then put under glass so I didn't want the extra bulk or batting and backing. Most of the stitching is my hand.
